Jean's martial art training took off in 2010. His early practice included traditional Judo methods and by the time he found us he had progressed to a black belt in Kenpo.
After becoming an exemplary member of DMA he was excited to embrace the path of instructing others and has recently become part of the team as an assistant instructor for Muay Thai Evolution classes.
His journey here is ongoing as he is on the mats for almost every program we offer and we are happy to see him embrace the role of teacher as he continues to grow as a martial artist.
Kevin is a martial artist that began practicing in 1985. His training includes many styles, both traditional and modern in order to develop a perspective that combines the methods of these arts in to a well balanced blend of history, creativity, and practicality. He learns, trains, and teaches martial arts wholeheartedly, driven by a passion to discover and express himself while applying ideas from Tao & Zen to these processes.
His fitness schooling began in adolescence, from basic calisthenics, through grueling wrestling room workouts, to eventually working alongside personal trainers, and becoming a Health & Wellness Coach at a local fitness center.
By melding the two paths into one journey, he established Darwin Martial Arts as the place where he can continue to explore and share these experiences, while creating new ones with an amazing community.
Francisco has solid history as a martial artist since 2002. He is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, with training in Wrestling, Daito Ryu, and the “Aiki” arts.
Though grappling became a specialty over the years, NAGA Championship was only the beginning. His journey has also included Boxing & Muay Lao training, professional MMA competition (2-1-0), and assisting the corners of a few of RI’s local fighters.
Along with his enthusiasm for all kinds of training methods, his attitude towards life is simply refreshing and we are honored that he is here to share his talents with us as an instructor & friend.
Truth has no path. Truth is living, and therefore, changing... Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do." - Bruce Lee
