John, commonly referred to as “Coach Cortes” or simply “Cortes,” has a developed a diverse martial arts background since his service as US Army combat infantryman. He began his Muay Thai training in 2007 and has been a student of Brazilain Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Krav Maga, Taekwondo, and Capoeira.
For John, martial arts is more than just fun, it’s a way to channel the negative energy in life into something productive. When life gets heavy, John goes to class, and by the end, he feels as though he is walking on air.
Coach Cortes teaches our Muay Thai Fundamentals classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-8am.
