Mike has spent almost 30 years working as an investigator tracking down and interviewing witnesses often while working in high crime areas.
Through his experiences, Mike developed and relied upon situational awareness and de-escalation techniques to remain safe while getting the job done. Further, through his work, Mike has investigated violent behavior, and how victims are chosen by attackers. Mike has made it his life’s commitment to helping others, and for the last eight years, along with Rich, he has taught people from all walks of life in a self-defense program of his own creation. Combining skills learned through years of study of Philippine and Korean martial arts, Mike’s program allows anyone, regardless of size, strength, or fitness level to learn to defend themselves using reality-based techniques. Mike teaches and trains at Blackman’s Championship Martial Arts Academy where he has earned 3rd Degree Black Belts in Taekwondo and Hapkido.
Mike initially began training in Philippine self-defense techniques in Los Angeles in the late 1980s. He resumed his training in Philippine martial arts with a focus on weapons disarms in 2006.
