Helio Soneca

BJJ Black Belt World Champion

"I have been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 47 years, Rolando's Self Defense curriculum is one of the best I've taken in my life. The mat and the street never lie, this system works for both!"

Online Self Defense Course

In my training, over the last 20+ years in Martial Arts I have found a common theme in Self Defense Classes. It all comes down to the approach

To truly understand Self Defense one must Learn:

-Fundamentals of Striking 

-Fundamentals of Grappling.

-Fundamentals of the Clinch.

-A Roadmap to understand when and where to employ such tactics

-All fights are not The Same. Tactics along with technique are important

Does this sound Interesting?

It's not very complicated. Learning Self Defense is learning how to Fight.

People are tired of gimmicks and gurus teaching cheap tricks as Self Defense 

To truly understand Self Defense, we must take a deep dive into different forms of PROVEN Martial arts such as: Boxing, Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, and Krav Maga


Here's How CorePRO Can Give You Real Results

Our 12-week course will teach you the fundamentals of fighting and give you context needed to understand what Self Defense truly is. This will provide a great starting point in your journey of learning how to protect yourself.
