But Self-Defense is for everyone, especially the small and weak! Providing everyone with a platform to study important concepts, become familiar with terminology and learn on their own allows every individual to grow at their own rate. It will also allow you to make the most of your time with me, being able to reference information taught in class.

Understanding the basics of proper Nutrition and exercise is essential to every person who is seeking quality of life.  Everyone deserves a chance to find hope through faith and happiness by reaching their full potential. 

So after Level 1 of the program is completed, each member will be administered a digital notebook with pictures, notes and curriculum from their initial period at The Foundation Training Center. 

This USB drive will then be routinely updated with pictures, teacher notes, curriculum, video links, technical advice and general pertinent information.  The greatest value for some students will be years down the road when they can look back and track their progress and evolution as a martial artist and as a person.

I encourage people to use this not only as a reference to techniques and information taught in class, but also as a diary of your experience in this program. I will provide directions and templates to guide you through this process, but it will ultimately come down to you.


As with everything you will ever do in life, you will get out of this process what you put into it.  The only thing I can promise you is that hard work, commitment and faith will pay off in the end.

Whether the rewards be friendships, financial success, personal achievement or valuable life lessons... hard work, healthy living and learning something new is rarely ever regretted.


The Digital Notebook is a tool that we will use at The Foundation Training Center to increase the learning capacity of our students and also create a more enjoyable overall experience.

There is so much information to learn that the task of taking on a new venture like this can seem overwhelming. Without clarity or direction to find answers, frustration can set in and leave the students believing that they are just not cut out for this stuff. Universally, 9 out of 10 people quit Jiu-Jitsu before they reach the first significant promotion never learning the skills to adequately defend themselves if necessary.

A Platform for Learning...

If you haven't already figured it out, one day you will come to realize that everything in this world can be taken from you in the blink of an eye.  Everything from your friends, family, husband, wife, children and home can be ripped from your life in an instant.  And the only thing left at the end of the day is you and what you believe.  The only thing that nobody can take from you, if its strong enough, is your faith. Getting past all the Self-defense, Nutrition and fitness, my ultimate goal at The Foundation is to help you build an unshakable faith on solid ground so that you have something to stand on above all things as truth.
