INSTRUCTOR

Residing in South Florida since 1992, Andre is the school Instructor and Wellness Coach with over 32 years Martial Arts experience. This has allowed him to obtain knowledgeable skills in teaching that is geared for students as young as 6 years old and as old as over 65 years old.

Andre even had the honor of teaching a legally blind musician who had previously been attacked by someone after one of his performance. Andre was able to teach his cane self-defense class privately for a few months. His student is now more confident after the self-defense course. However, this particular client gave Andre a new perspective about his teaching to which he created one specialized curriculum that can be used across the board with all his students.

“You are not always expected to win a fight, but losing is not an option”, is a known statement that Andre makes during his sessions. In his view, if a woman, child, elderly, disabled or a weaker person cannot use a particular art to defend themselves then it is useless.

In addition, Andre continuously seeks to learn about Health and Wellness while on his Martial Arts pilgrimage. Due to the growing health epidemic that has plagued the modern masses, he made a personal vow to assist others in combating the four silent killers in society today: Cholesterol, Diabetes, Hypertension and Obesity.

Since many of us have experienced one or more of these medical ailments, whether personally or through someone we care about in our lives, Andre believes, if caught earlier enough, these diseases can be reversed by proper diet and exercise.

In addition, pursuing Mental Empowerment, alleviating Stress and Pain, a person can maintain a healthy lifestyle. As a Wellness Coach, Andre’s sessions improve people’s livelihood on a daily basis. Below is a list of his martial arts and wellness background. To learn more about Andre’s martial arts classes and wellness sessions, feel free to contact him directly at (954) 342-6334
