Chief instructor


At CTC we train students of all ages, genders and abilities, from novice to professional. I have directed a fitness and weight loss camp for overweight children and have trained adults to become licensed California fighters. Such a wide variation of coaching styles is one of the many advantages offered at CTC, which is forwarded and beneficial to all our students.

As the Chief Instructor of CTC, I am continuously rewarded by my students as they improve their skills, gain confidence and increase their self-esteem. As a parent, I understand the pressures on today’s children and parents. I take pride in developing students both mentally and physically. Our training is based on discipline and respect, without ever losing sight on our focus of making training both fun and rewarding.
