"I currently work for a contractor and run my own carpentry business on the side. Growing up I was always involved in sports. I started playing hockey when I was 4 and played high school football .
Once I graduated , I found my self lacking something to keep mentality and physically engaged in. I wanted to challenge myself, but also learn something new at the same time that would benefit me in everyday life.
Since joining Spartan Krav Maga I have become both mentally and physically stronger than I have ever been before. I have developed self defense skills that give me confidence to feel safe, not only to protect myself but to protect others if necessary. Beyond that it has taught me that Krav Maga is a lifestyle and has all around made me a better person.
Through hard work , dedication and hours of training, I have been fortunate enough to now have the ability to pass on what I have learned and to teach others . I always strive to lead by example and to better myself everyday."
