I've been training in mixed martial arts since 1995 - having competed in hundreds of wrestling and submission wrestling matches and having fought in mixed martial arts fights. I've competed against world champions and am a former two-time submission wrestling National Champion. Along with my own competition accolades, I am also the owner of the Freestyle Fighting Academy, Miami's oldest MMA gym, having trained thousands of students, which include law enforcement, military, UFC fighters, and everyday people that just want to get in shape and learn self defense. I've also taught seminars for the Miami Dade Police, the National Guard, and in gyms all around the world
I've been shooting since 2001, holding a multitude of Instructor Certifications from organizations such as the NRA, Glock, and others. I've trained and earned certifications with shooting legends such as Massad Ayoob and have trained extensively with Green Berets, Navy Seals, and other high level military operators. I also hold the title of "NRA Training Counselor" which allows me to certify instructors under the NRA. There are only about 400 active NRA Counselors in the USA and I've been sought out to certify instructors all over the country. I'm also responsible for having given thousands of South Floridians their Concealed Carry Permit classes.
I started my first business at 19 years old, which was a grappling and kickboxing promotion. After hosting 14 shows, I opened up my first brick-and-mortar business, the Freestyle Fighting Academy, at 21 years old back in 2001. That business has been grossing over $1 million a year since 2005 - and since then I've moved on to have an assortment of different income streams, such as selling on Amazon. I've traveled around the world learning sales and marketing from some of the world's top business experts. I've also coached hundreds of business owners in how to better run their businesses - and have coached people in starting their first businesses, with traditional brick-and-mortar businesses and with online businesses, such as Amazon.
