I am a Catholic Christian, Father, Husband, and constitutionalist.

I served for 11 years in the RI National Guard Field Artillery, and I worked security in both armed and unarmed posts in Providence RI for years.  Club and Hospital security work was fun and challenging and helped me to develop my martial arts training programs.

I want to help people train to defend themselves and gain peace of mind through the practice of martial arts.
