Paul and Abundio have trained together in martial arts for over thirty years, having met back in 1985 in College Station, Texas, while Paul was a student at Texas A&M University. Upon graduating from A&M, Paul’s passion in martial arts quickly focused on the self-defense aspect of it. 

In the early 1990’s, he trained many of the Fort Worth police officers in tactical self-defense, specializing in choke holds, takedowns, handcuffing, and overall arrest procedures. Through the years, he has continued with his self-defense seminars in the metroplex, and will be training the DFW Airport Firefighters and Paramedics.

Now a 7th Degree Black Belt, with his background consisting of Tae Kwon Do, Jujitsu, and Aikido, he brings a wealth of experience and is beyond ecstatic to be rejoining Abundio in his new venture after all these years by instructing our Adult's American Taekwondo class!
