Many years of experience teaching the art of Brazilian jiu jitsu makes Kevin a specialist in dealing with people in the martial arts business. His philosophy of teaching is based on creating a family style atmosphere where people can train in a friendly, clean and healthy environment, helping and developing together but always evolving and growing as a martial artist within individual skills and personal limits. Great attitude, good energy and a lot of smiles are always following Kevin wherever he goes to teach and now he will open his very own academy! In our academy we will start a way of teaching, for a better future, one student at a time; because we believe martial arts should be character building and promote physical fitness at the same time. We will provide a perfect environment to develop great people through martial art , promoting important values and principles that don’t seam to be a priority anymore in the modern societies but for us is a very important part of a better living: tolerance, compromise, honesty, opening, freedom, love, balance, efficiency, patience and control.
Training process is based on hard work and dedication and will have special attention to details and the development of discipline and willpower; focuses on building self-confidence, using positive reinforcement to teach how to trust in individual abilities and techniques. “…the practitioner of jiu jitsu not need to be a competitor or just a trained athlete for a competition, he must be faithful to the teaching because then comes the soul of art, should just let art be something good without pressure … competition just test each technique, but art as philosophy is the most important, not only tests the technique, but the understanding and wisdom of each forehead … control over the body mind and soul. The practitioner of jiu jitsu has dominion over the lives of others and life itself, he knows exactly where to touch, some are good competitors and others are good teachers, but we all are excellent students because we need to learn a lot about what we teach dedication and respect and then get the discipline as a way to transform the character. A master can and should question the behavior of his student, but a student should never question the wisdom of his master…”
