Coach Rashad Brown Owner and Head Coach From 1994 to today Coach Rashad has trained in multiple martial arts always keeping self-defense as his main purpose for training. He lives by the principle taught to him by his college Isshinryu Karate instructor, “learn to fight first and then you can learn to play games”. Learning to fight has safely brought him through a deployment to Iraq as a team and squad infantry leader and nine years as a police officer. He always tells people that he loves the sports of Muay Thai, Judo, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but never forgets that the foundation of his martial art is laid in self-defense.
