Chris works professionally in a Law Enforcement career as a Full- time Police Officer with over 15 years of experience. He has formulated his Martial Arts and Law Enforcement experience and training to be more suited and applicable for real life situations rather then traditional movements that may or may not work in actually combat circumstances.
He holds multiple Black Belt rankings in Martial Arts, but does not solely believe entirely in the "belt system" but rather in "the ability to effectively use what you learn for real life street applications, should the need for such ever arise."
He has trained in bodybuilding, powerlifting and in strength conditioning for many years as well and has helped many reach and exceed their goals . He really enjoys training and teaching in all areas of Martial Arts, Weightlifting and Overall Fitness & openly shares his knowledge with others because he is very passionate and truly believes in what he is doing.
