“I’m a University professor who’s also been a professional fighter, ICF certified coach, and advisor to the military. My diverse background has made me painfully aware of the underdeveloped state of our younger generation. But more importantly, it gives me the tools to build them up.I’ve spent the last decade testing innovative methods that have been shown to aid the development of both boys and girls ages 7-18. The results I’ve seen first-hand from these classes have been merely astonishing”- Arthur Chivichyan
