More About Coach Alex

Martial Arts and Self Defense Instructor for over 35 years of teaching experience. Owner of Just Tactics LLC and former Los Angeles Sheriff Department Force Instructor and Krav Maga Worldwide Instructor. I am a 4th Dan in Teoul Moon Kung Fu trained under GM Yim Hon.

Between 1984 through 1991 I competed and won many black belt level tournaments in the United States, Korea, and the Philippines. After 1991, I became a use of force instructor for the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department. In 2000 I worked as an instructor for Krav Maga Worldwide specializing in law enforcement and military training. I received numerous awards for teaching community self defense classes in the County of Los Angeles. My individual and corporate training have been used effectively in real world situations involving guns, knives, and physical confrontations.

Training is a combination of mixed martial arts. We choose a tactical approach to training that is designed for rapid skill development and longer retention – The training emphasizes situational awareness, posturing in a non-confrontational manner that makes it natural for the body to respond quickly while protecting one’s personal space. Emphasis of the training is on the initial confrontation; Obtaining and maintaining the tactical advantage while remaining in the role of the victim (there are no rules that a victim of a violent crime must get hurt).

Client Reviews

WOW! I’m at a loss for words. I have had two meetings with Coach Alex, and already feel confident that I have learned enough basics to get out of an attack situation. He is thorough, intelligent, patient and uses real-life scenarios to make you think outside the box when it comes to self-defense. I’m incredibly impressed and thankful to have found Coach Alex.

Coach Alex is different than any other martial arts trainer I have had because he is an experienced police officer and expert in real world Krav Maga and personal defense. His training and techniques are second to none and he is a true professional. Alexis is also an advocate for women and is an expert in strangulation.

Coach Alex is great coach. He takes the time to explain the training and is very patient with you as you learn the new techniques and skills. I would highly recommend Coach Alex for anyone wanting to gain self-defense knowledge and awareness.

Great class and instructor

From the very first training session I Knew that ALEX was more than qualified to effectively teach and train! We went right in to practice self defense tactics that you can apply immediately if your in that situation. I signed up for 3 sessions to see if this was a good fit for me and I just signed up for 5 more sessions! Definitely a better value to get bulk classes, and the best part he comes to my house! When we set a time he’s here at that time! These training sessions already have my state of mind and reflexes working without even thinking about it! I give Alex 5 stars and I will keep continuing my training! Sep 20, 2018
Invaluable tactics training that will no doubt give you the upper hand, and enhance your ability to successfully handle any situation! Dec 18, 2017
Alex is a great coach! He breaks every movement down step by step. He also gives great real life scenarios and it puts you into perspective. Dec 18, 2017
I had been looking for Krav Maga/Self-defense training for about a year since moving back to Brevard County. The closest one I found was in about an 1 1/2 away in Lake Mary. I found Just Tactics on Thumbtack. Not only were they here, but Alex offered to come to my home to train me. I had reached level 3 in my previous training. With Alex, I have learned real-life techniques and go through real-life situations. Alex's experience and training has really been helpful in my development. I would highly recommend Just Tactics to anyone who is serious about learning Krav/Self-defense. Jul 19, 2018
