The ability to fight does not come from Rank, Style, or Title. It comes from the passion to train, aspire, overcome fear, and discover your own way. Only then, will you unleash your own Art of Combat.
– Nathan Grey
During training… you will be tested both physically and mentally. You will be hit. You will feel pain. Your ego will be damaged. I have no time to waste with those who waste my time. If you want to train, then I welcome the company, otherwise I’ll continue to train alone.
Pure training is not about rank or status, it is about discovery of your full potential. It’s freedom from the limitations of traditional thinking. There is nothing here for us to hide behind. No lies, no ego, no false pretenses. There is only you and your opponent(s).
“TITLE” is something you earn by defeating someone weaker than you.
Look in the mirror… THAT is your only competition.
We are not sheep. We don’t blindly follow the herd. Outcast by others, we don’t belong in their martial world of “follow the leader” and “expensive worthless black belts”. Keep your trophies, your katas, your traditions… they have no value. For those with courage to fight, congrats… However, being able to take a punch, doesn’t make one a great fighter. Beyond “toughness”, there must be talent.
Beyond martial arts… we discover our true inner warrior.
Martial Arts training is an internal search, and through exhausting, intense, and consistent training, it is about discovery.
For over 20 years, I taught anyone from children, to adults, from recreational hobbyists, to serious fighters. Those years are now behind me. What I do now, I do for myself.
I train for myself. I train because I love it. Over my lifetime, I have acquired a level of skill which I share with anyone serious and passionate about their training. If you are searching for more in your training, then I will share my time with you.
This is not my job, instead it is my passion. If you step into training with me, then I expect you train. I expect you to push yourself, to overcome fear, and discover your fighting style. If you are dedicated, I will train with you… if not, then we share nothing in common, and we may simply part ways as friends, and travel our own separate paths.
Whether your passion is combative martial arts in its truest and most beautiful form, or stunt acting for film and TV, I hope our paths cross someday. The artist walks a lonely road through life, it is a rare pleasure to share this path with others who share this passion.
My signature title for demonstrating the various styles of combat I create is “RELENTLESS”. More than a film, it’s a series of portfolio short films, featuring Parkour, Martial Arts, Visual FX, Tactical Combat, Gunfire, Science Fiction Weapons, Magic, and Extreme Cinematography.
RELENTLESS wouldn’t be possible without the talent of Alex Mishun, James Bast, Mike Jones, Tom Schmidt, Nathan Lowe, Jarrod Crooks, and the variety of massive talent we include in our productions. Enjoy!
More content is on its way, as we’re currently in pre-production for “RELENTLESS: The Art of Combat”. More than a sequel, this will be a series of 6 short films, linked together in a common story, all with completely different visuals, fight choreography, environments, and various portrayals of our characters.
