Martial Arts Tutor/Sparring Partner
I am a well rounded mixed martial artist focusing on soft styles. I have trained in tai chi, aikido, judo, jiu jutsu, and boxing and focus on the underlying principles underneath all martial styles. My methods are based on combat effectiveness and frequent sparring. What I can provide is a large amount of knowledge on using relaxation, body structure, intrinsic strength, and strategy to defeat your opponents in boxing, grappling, throwing, kicking and wrestling.
I will teach methods of effective relationship and intrinsic power that allow a person of any size or strength to essentially 'outmaneuver' their opponent to create victory. These principles include bodily structure and alignment, using wrist and joint locks to overtake your opponent's center, drawing power up from the ground, throwing your opponent with a superior relationship to gravity, and 'creating space where there is no space' to never be trapped or controlled by an opponent. These lessons should provide anyone with not just a greater sense of security, but a deeper sense of empowerment and confidence in understanding the inherent power of their bodies and minds.
Advanced training can include fighting with weapons, fighting unarmed against armed opponents, using improvised weapons, fighting multiple opponents.
