I have had opportunities to teach at various martial arts schools and have even more experience giving private lessons for all ages and skill levels. I have prepared a 5 year old for Judo competition, and taught many others based on their individual needs for proper progression of simple to advanced principles. I have extensive competition experience with successful results. I consider my knowledge of martial arts the most valuable skill I can teach any person.
Experience includes: 11 years Judo, Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai and weapons(namely Kali sticks, and blades)
6 years Brazilian Jiu-jitsu
As a GNC sales associate I consulted with customers about their lifestyle, and eating habits so as to recommend a single nutritional product or a complete change of diet. My time was also spent keeping up with ever-changing nutritional information and reading in store material about ailments and their relationship to nutritional deficiencies.
I am a native Spanish speaker, born and raised in El Paso, Texas, my father from Chihuahua, and mother from Juarez. I am comfortable teaching beginner to intermediate Spanish. Lesson materials are encouraged at lesson for both myself and student to review.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
My knowledge in this subject is very philosophical, having spent many hours reading on the principles of bodybuilding and fitness. I use bodybuilding to supplement my martial arts training and my study in this subject continues daily.
I started drumming at the age of 10. Then in high school i was part of the band's drum line, where i learned to read music. I was unable to afford a drum set for many years, but always kept up with my hands and more advanced concepts, as well as training my ear for breaking down music. Then, two years ago I finally purchased a Yamaha set which I have been practicing on nearly everyday. I am confident in teaching the basics to beginners, and I would be glad to develop more alongside more advanced drummers as well.
To supplement my martial arts training, and to strengthen my knowledge of fitness at my past employment at GNC, I spent many hours learning the principles of nutrition and fitness. I use these principles nearly everyday to keep up with my training routine and to strengthen my body to be able to keep up with my desires. Understanding that everyone is different and no one approach is universally sound for everyone, I aim to learn as much as I can to form ideal routines for each individuals goal. I read new information nearly everyday and am trying to save money to become certified personal trainer. However, nearly everyday I am able to use these principles to gain results for myself and others to success.
With over 10 years of total training in martial arts and daily study on principles of dynamics and anatomy, I have been able to teach many students what I know and give them successful results in competition. I come to realize that the philosophy of when, why, and where to apply techniques are more important than just knowing the mechanical sense of martial arts. This broad approach to martial arts resonates deeper in understanding, absorbing and retaining technique and has yielded many good results for students I have taught and for myself as well. I continue training at least 3 times a week, and aim to continue for the rest of my life. I feel learning even the very basics of self defense, such as space, is essential for every person.
