Our Instructors

Tony has been studying the martial arts for over 25 years. He holds three different black belts. His philosophy is simple: basics, basics, basics. For most of the year, Tony teaches all of the children's classes and adult classes on Wednesday night. The rest of his teaching time is private lessons.
Ray grew up studying, practicing and competing in the striking arts. After serving in the Military, Ray met Tony and Brian and began training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Ray received his black belt from Pedro Sauer in 2015 and is one of our school's main instructors.
Mike has been a student of Tony's for over 13 years. After high school, Mike served in the military. After serving, Mike came back to the gym and is now a Brown Belt, teaching most of the self-defense classes.
Ted is not considered a "traditional" student. He began training at age 39. Nearly 12 years later, at age 50, Ted received his black belt and teaches Adults Classes on Mondays.
Brian has been studying martial arts since high school. He has strong background in wrestling and holds two black belts. Brian primarily teaches adults classes on Fridays and Saturdays.
