Q&A with Juan, Owner And Head Instructor
How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
My approach is different than others, because I developed and trained people in functional hand-to-hand tactics for the U.S. Army Rangers and the 82nd Airborne Division. I served 24 years in the military and my tactics and curriculum have been used in real world situations.
We're dedicated to giving students the highest-quality martial arts training in disciplines such as Jeet Kune Do, Kali-Escrima-Silat (Filipino martial arts), Thai Boxing (Muay Thai), Combat Submission Wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We feel that change is necessary through constantly searching for ways to improve one’s martial arts abilities.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
I am a Full Certified Instructor under Dan Inosanto (Bruce Lee's Protege), and hold a black belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I started training in martial arts at the age of 5. I've developed my curriculum over the years, and founded Combatives Unlimited in 1995.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I am an Affiliation Representative for Erik Paulson Combat Submission Wrestling for Jacksonville, FL.
