I’m also the Executive Director of the World Muay Thai League an association dedicated to establishing professional ranking, teaching and safety standards and increasing amateur participation in Muay Thai.
I am the President of Sarkine Global, a company specializing in Protection Training and Services for Celebrities, Executives, Corporations, Private individuals and Law enforcement agencies.
To tell you a little about my background, I come from a Martial Arts Family, both My father and Uncle were involved in the Martial Arts. I began training around the age of 5 and am a second generation Martial Artist, hopefully my children will become the third to Teach Martial Arts.
I learned early, what was generally accepted to be ‘correct’ practices …. in real life didn’t always work well. Not only the techniques but the instructional methods often also seemed inadequate.
This led me to constantly question and examine all methods.
For years I was on a quest to learn what truly worked and which techniques and methods would transfer well to my students.
I tested and retested skills, strategies and techniques in the ring, on the mat, and in Law Enforcement/Security work.
I’ve spent my entire life dedicated to learning and practicing different Martial Arts and discovering the best way to teach these skills.
I began my first school over 3 decades ago and am proud to have taught thousands of happy, successful students. Along the way, I’ve trained many champions, both Male and Female in Muay Thai, Kickboxing and Boxing.
My focus continues to be on developing ’Best Practices’ and creating an highly effective Framework for learning. These many years of training and teaching has helped me develop the Unique Approach we use in my schools today and helped me form Modern Muay Thai, the proprietary methodology I’ve developed to help students learn and progress.
My schools are considered by many to be the biggest and most successful of their type and we believe, as do others, our program is the best in the U.S.
As you may imagine, I have some strong beliefs on what proper training should be.

Physical Benefits of our Martial Arts Training
It seems the entire World is now trying to emulate fighters. We teach personal fitness trainers, former Cross-trainers and ex-athletes of all kinds. They come to us to achieve that symmetrical and muscled physique fighters are famous for.
Our approach is unique. We Teach Ancient Martial Arts utilizing a Modern updated methodology.
In my Martial Arts School Students don’t force themselves to ‘exercise’ – they’re excited to TRAIN. There is a HUGE difference.
Our students have fun learning and aren’t conscious of how hard they work. It’s much easier to shape up when you’re mentally engaged and enjoy what you’re doing.
Adult Martial Arts Classes
Our Adult Martial Arts Class works every muscle in your body from head to toe.
It isn’t long before most students slim down, get stronger and need better fitting clothes. It’s often their friends and family whom first notice their new confidence and how fit they’ve become. In our class you’ll burn fat, build muscle and shred inches! You’ll get toned legs and abs and build a lean muscled physique.
Many lose a FOOT of inches in the first 8 weeks!
Some students only want to drop a few pounds, tone up, and maintain their condition…. (an understandable approach when research shows the average person is gaining 7-12 lbs a year) Others want to ‘push it’……
Whether you want to be totally ripped or just healthy and proud, either way our Instructors will work with you to make sure you reach your goals.
If your progress slows, our Instructors know how to help you past sticking points – They have experience cutting weight and preparing for their own Championship fights and know the best methods to build strength and stamina and how to ‘cycle’ the training for best results.

If you’re looking for Martial Arts lessons it’s important to understand what you’ll be learning. Is a schools system antiquated? Is it effective for your body shape and abilities? Is the training safe? You should understand the curriculum, learning curve and be happy with the Atmosphere. You must be satisfied with the curriculum and the experience and professionalism of the Instruction.
Hopefully, you’ll never need Self-Defense.
But if you do, choosing us will be the smartest thing you ever did. With our history of champions and decades of experience you can be confident you’re receiving quality instruction.
Our training is Authentic.
We teach you proper techniques, strategies and tactics. The same skills our Champions use to win Title belts. In Our Martial Arts School, Self-Defense Classes aren’t just punching and kicking. We’ll teach you the best Arts and help you learn what will work for you.
Our Instructors teach students to avoid dangerous situations, to be aware and Street Smart. They learn how to deescalate a situation and how to achieve the proper Mindset for defense.
However, when a situation can’t be avoided its important the skills a student learns are effective.
Self-Defense is never a competition on equal terms. In real life you don’t get to pick the circumstances. You may have to defend against weapons or face a much larger opponent. Oftentimes there are multiple opponents (estimated 40% of all attacks are by multiple perpetrators)
You could be in cramped areas like a stairwell or between parked cars. You may have to defend someone else (a child or spouse) while (at the same time) defending yourself. Learning to fight from the ground is also needed.
You need a complete system: A comprehensive approach utilizing different arts and skills customized to fit each individual.
Having dedicated my entire life to studying different Martial Arts and testing these Arts, I’ve discovered what REALLY works and have created a one-of-a-kind TOTAL style.
THE SMART CHOICE
My curriculum has 2 Main Components.
Modern Muay Thai (visit ModernMuayThai.com) featuring the world’s most effective striking: Muay Thai Kickboxing, along with elements of Muay Boran, Lethwei (Burmese Kickboxing), Western Boxing and Karate.
Fight Dynamics teaching skills from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Aikido, Krav Maga and more. (Visit Fight Dynamics. com to learn more)
In effect our students get 4 schools in one:
The Striking of Muay Thai and Boxing.
The Grappling of Jui-Jitsu and Judo.
The Throws and Joint Attacks of Aikido.
The Defensive Tactics of Krav Maga.
Students also learn elements of other Arts and how to use weapons.
Our Training represents the pinnacle of Martial Arts and Self-Defense.
These programs aren’t a disorganized jumble of different techniques: They’re highly evolved: I’ve eliminated all unnecessary elements and ensured the skills integrate with one another seamlessly.
Furthermore I’ve refined the order in which they should be taught, making for an easy step-by-step process.
Both programs are licensed and available only at my schools.
You can be sure this system is effective. It’s the same skills my competitors use to win Championship titles and has been the choice of law enforcement officers, security professionals, civilians, and elite military personnel who may pick any school they wish.
They choose Sarkine’s Total Warrior because it is…. the Total Solution.

It’s important Students learn our Total System of Self-Defense before they adjust to a one-on-one contest.
