BEGAN CROSSFIT: March 2011
I have been practicing Martial Arts since I was a kid and I’m still a student of Modern Farang Mu Sul. This passion and an honest quest for a better way to prepare specifically for self-defense brought me to Blauer Tactical System (B.T.S.) and I became a Personal Defense Readiness Instructor in 2007.
Shortly after, I moved back to Italy where I worked as a Defensive Tactics instructor for Delta Firearms Academy. There I became a Firearm Instructor and helped run their firearms classes (Defensive Shooting/CQB/Executive Protection) until early 2010.
Forever on a quest to bring the most useful and efficient training to my students, I became a Combat Focus Shooting instructor in April of 2010.
In September 2011 I took another step forward and became a Crossfit Level 1 Trainer, to integrate functional fitness in our defensive training and make my clients stronger, faster and safer.
I started my training company, Safer Faster Defense, in 2011. The mission: through education and training I want to give my clients the knowledge and tools to stay safe and to prepare them to prevail in dangerous situations.
In 2012 working with Matt Munson, Omari Broussard and Rob Pincus we developed the FitShot program to inspire a higher level of fitness in the shooting community.
In 2012, I finished to develop Safer Faster Knife Defense to provide a simple and intuitive training program that will quickly make the student more efficient in deploying and using a knife in a modern defensive context.
In January 2013, I became Director of Training for 10X Defense. I take this responsibility very seriously and I’m looking forward to bring each member of the instructors team’s expertise to bear as we move forward with developing new programs and refining current ones.
