Brian Metz has an extensive martial Arts background and since the age of 5 he has collective total of 24 years of martial arts training. With training in Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Jujutsu, Judo, Kyokushin, and studied on an independent basis the philosophies and training patterns of Uechiryu and Gojuryu. Brian was published in the book “A Real World Martial Arts Guide” on his views and principles concerning Isshinryu Karate-Do.
Brian’s passion isn’t just Martial Arts. He found his passion and life’s work in bettering the lives of those around him. In teaching Martial Arts for the last 14 years he has seen the impact he was able to make in so many lives. Taking a bullied teen and see them grow into a confident adult brings him more joy then any level of monetary gain. As well as taking an adult with no prior experience or ability and seeing them turn into a technical and competent fighter.
Although he was able to help and develop individuals in a mental and physical sense within martial arts, he knew his ability to help people grow was limited. After training in CrossFit for an extended amount of time he realized his own self growth and development in overall health and well being. It was at this realization that he decided to go down the path to owning his own affiliation. He only has one life to give and he wants to spend it helping people live more fulfilling lives. To not only help people with a sense of protection but the overall well being that CrossFit offers.
