Eric likes to say that he was doing martial arts before he was born, because his mother trained Judo while she was pregnant with him. Essentially, Eric has trained martial arts his whole life. He has owned several martial arts studios and has trained all levels from beginners to professional fighters. He has developed cutting edge techniques and has fighters from around the world visit him here in Los Angeles to train with him. His philosophy is more along the lines of Zen Buddhism and believes in the principals behind the traditional ancient martial arts: respect, discipline, hard work, sacrifice and humility. Eric moved west over 12 years ago because of his involvement in the film industry. Yet, even with his busy schedule, Eric is passionate about teaching MMA, and we are fortunate that Eric chooses to train people at 4 Star Gym.
