Top Notch

I first met Greg in 2010 while training at IU. He was and is very methodical when it comes to technique, but he always lightens the mood with his witty rhetoric. Since getting to know him through countless hours of training, I realized what a special instructor I had. Despite working as a firefighter and raising his 4 kids, he still provides quality knowledge to his students. -Frank G.
