What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The difference: We are lucky enough to have a legend, pioneer, Muay Thai specialist, Kong Do specialist, MMA specialist, Striking specialist, Ground specialist, and World Champion, Harold Diamond to bring his expertise into the SGV to teach the right and only way, "The Diamond Way"
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
ALL AGES WELCOMED: It's our self-defense and learn MMA campaign for the adults and our Bullying Stops Here campaign for our youths.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
To give both adults and youths the knowledge and confidence to be able to defend themselves in any situation. And especially to teach our youths how to avoid confrontations, but to also know how to protect themselves if one occurs.
What do you love most about your job?
We are helping make a difference, building confidence within our youths, helping our men and women protect themselves, and most importantly, implementing a health and fitness lifestyle with the people of our community.
Having honed his kitesurfing skills off the beaches of Hawaii and Southern California, both places known for gusty winds and big waves, Daniel Andersson knows all of the ins and outs of the sport. He draws on nearly a decade of teaching experience as the head instructor of Zen Athletics, which also specializes in functional fitness and Jeet Kune Do—Bruce Lee’s combat system. Before he even got into kitesurfing, Daniel mastered several martial arts, studying Muay Thai and Thai-boxing at a very early age in Thailand. He brings all of this athletic expertise to bear in his lessons, which are kept private or semi-private with four people or less to ensure each student gets individual attention.
