Private Martial Arts Lessons


50 per session

Willing to train a dedicated individual in martial arts. I teach a variety of styles, and alter the training based on what is best for the student.

Training & Qualifications

I have black belts in Kami Bushi Kai Shotokan Karate (2nd degree), Ki Mushin Ryu Karate (6th Degree), Iaijutsu (2nd degree), and Kunjutsu (1st degree).

I have trained in US Army Combatives and was a hand-to-hand instructor for my company as well as for the Iraqi police during my time overseas training them.

I have also trained in Muay Thai, 8 Step Preying Mantis Kung Fu, Wing Chun, Moo Duk Kwan, and Krav Maga.

I competed in amateur MMA and boxing tournaments, and have had to use my training in combat while deployed overseas.

Availability & Preferences

All day on Saturday, and after 6pm on weekdays.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Franklin was good to work with. He was detailed in what he wanted, clear about what I had free reign over, and reasonable about the deadline.
