Hi, my name is Laci Szabo, I have over 25 years of experience in the field, I have been an instructor for the Army, the Police, DOD, DOE and many private citizens. I have shared what I have learned with domestic and foreign agencies. (only with the good guys, friends of the USA)
I had the privilege to train with many great warriors: chronologically: Master Shinen, Marine Corps Line training instructors, Master at Arms James Keating, Russell Watson, Sifu Dwight Woods, Guru Dan Inosanto, Kelly McCann, Sifu Francis Fong, Charles Nelson, Conan and Robert Silvera, and many other very talented and gifted martial artists.
Throughout my years of experience, I have come to realize certain tactics simply do not work. A lot of systems are developed with liability in mind, eliminating technics that actually work because they are dangerous. This is why I have created a system that incorporates all weapons. This system is fun, easy to learn, easy to practice and easy on the body.
My rate starts $75.00 per online class (Zoom or Google) no matter how many people attend, and goes down to $50.00 per class after 10 sessions.
There is no contract and no commitment needed.
If you are interested, just give me a call @ 386-338-1189, and we will set it up.
I have added my resume below, to give an idea of my professional experience.
