Besides working with kids, Bruce is also a Certifited Personal Protection Instructor for adults. In 2000 Bruce was exposed to Krav Maga an Israeli form of self defense. He was so impressed with Krav Maga's reality of training that he became a certified Krav Maga instructor in California. Ever since, Bruce has been teaching various Krav Maga courses here in Tucson at the University of Arizona.
As a U.S. Marine with over 25 years of "Combat Arts" experience, Bruce has trained U.S. Marine, U.S. Army, and Foreign Military units in Combative Tactics. Bruce's passion is training his fellow American citizen in all aspects of self-defense. From teaching children to protect themselves from bullies and predators to empowering assault survivors in women's shelters, Bruce strives to increase his student's level of awareness, safety, and confidence through vigorous mental, emotional and physical regimens. His innovative conditioning drills shock many of his students into the reality of combat on the street. His no-nonsense approach to fighting and training hard has earned Bruce the respect from his dedicated students.
Although a Blackbelt, Bruce continues his own training as a student in the Elite Combat Arts of Kapap, Systema, and Kajukenbo. His research into the current tactics employed by thugs on the street and the fear that may affect a defender's performance has led to the development of the most comprehensive training system in Tucson, "Combat Fit". This innovative system incorporates practical combative sequencing, realistic personal protection tactics, simulated scenarios and functional movement drills, all designed to help the student understand what really happens during a street attack and what to do to survive it.
