Sifu Greg Hayes trained under Grandmaster Wong Jack Man of San Francisco Jing Mo; studying Tai Chi, Shaolin, Xingyi and other Internal Martial Arts. The recent film Birth of a Dragon, is about Grandmaster Wong Jack Man beating Bruce Lee in a match.

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

About Sifu Jack S.

Las Vegas, NV
View Full Profile

CDF ACADEMY has been doing Mixed Martial Arts since 1979. A lot of our training is thinking out of the box and is very hard to find. Our curriculum consists of Tibetan Llama Kung Fu, as well as water boxing, Tai Chi, Filipino Weapons Training, JKD, and Cdf Street fighting: defensive techniques for the street. So much more as Wooden Dummy training and Women's kick boxing and training. I trained with Grandmaster Wai Lun Chois and Guru Danny Inosanto who studied with the late Bruce Lee and Guru Rich Lamoureaux.

About Sifu Jack
I was accepted in an all Chinese School in Chinatown Chicago in 1973 when it was very difficult for non-chinese students to study. My Sifu was Grand Master Wai Lun Chois who fought for 8 days out of 13 days in full contact in South East Asia Singapore to become the Grand Bare Knuckle Champion. I have taught over 15,000 Students since 1975.

Take lessons anytime and anywhere. If you fly into Vegas I am available to pick you up from the airport and go start training at your hotel, at a school or local park... Have a great day.

Versatile in teaching all fighting forms.
Overall great guy.
Can learn to fight and learn a lot about life if you are willing to expand your mind.

There are (unfortunately) many Martial Arts instructors who know just enough about self defense to get their students killed. Sifu jack is a TRUE instructor with years of experience and he possesses an exceptional reputation. The best thing I could say is " I'd have him watch my back and/or protect my loved ones anytime".

You won't find a more experienced, insightful, inspirational, and personable instructor as Siful Jack! With his strength, flexibility, wisdom, enthusiasm, sensitivity and humor, he makes things EASY.

About Justin B.

I have years of experience in many different styles and instructor credentials in Jeet Kune Do, Kali/Silat and Judo. I teach Mixed Martial Arts that address all ranges found in fighting. Or, I can teach styles independently.
Using my professional background in security, I can incorporate self-defense techniques into a strategy for effective personal security regardless of skill level or physical capability. Through my ability in Filipino Martial Arts, I can teach the use of improvised or purpose-built self-defense weapons.
It’s important to me to work with the student to identify training goals so that every lesson is leading to that objective.

About Ikyo B.

Bloomfield, NJ
View Full Profile

I train specifically in combat for Brazilian Jui Jitsu, American kickboxing, and Muay Thai. My training regimen will require a large amount of endurance both mentally and physically. If the student keeps up with the training consistently, results will be seen every week! The training will include a balance of body weight exercise and technique mastery. Shaping both the student's body and skill as a martial artist.

About Ikyo
My name is Ikyo, I have been studying several different types of martial arts for 16 years and have taught students both in classes and privately for the past 6 years. I specialize in teaching combative styles such as Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, and American Kick Boxing. However, these are not the extent of my martial arts knowledge. Feel free to ask me questions about my style of teaching and what to expect during a class.
