Jim is currently in training for his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and 2nd Degree Black Belt Tae Kwon Do. Jim holds a Master’s of Science Degree and is a certified Corrective Exercise Specialist with National Academy of Sports Medicine. Jim has over 2000 hours of teaching experience as the Head Instructor and CEO of American Martial Art Academy in San Antonio, Texas.
Jim is committed to making sure his students reach their goals by integrating components of his martial art philosophy: perseverance and integrity. “Without perseverance a person will not be able to push beyond their comfort zone. Without integrity we will lack consistency and ethic. These tenets are the cornerstone to a healthy and successful lifestyle.” Jim believes that martial art training should occur daily to enhance one’s journey and understanding of the art while creating peace in the mind, body, and spirit.
This is his first season with Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts, Jim is showing our guests the benefit of mixed martial art training by enhancing their confidence, discipline, and self respect.
“The benefit of being a Martial Art teacher is helping and encouraging my students with their confidence, discipline, and self image.”
