A brief presentation of Coach Preto:
"For the full-contact stick fighter, Luis' approach to staff has huge appeal. He demonstrates outstanding range and timing, with hardcore commitment"
Loki Jorgenson, instructor of Pekiti-Tirsia & Dog Brothers’ MA
"Luis delivers content that is both grounded in solid body mechanics and tactically relevant and applicable to all martial artists regardless of discipline. His 'in-context' approach to training martial skills helps students not only learn but easily apply new techniques outside of drills in an efficient and effective manner. He has certainly had a positive impact on the way that I teach and train"
Devon Boorman, Academie Duello’s lead instructor
"Our skills as a club improved dramatically as a result of his tutelage. Not only did our students gain from Luis' skill as a teacher, but our instructor team benefited immeasurably from his insightful coaching. Luis is a patient tutor with a keen eye for the minutiae and detail of fine body mechanics. During his tenure at Blood and Iron Martial Arts he quickly became a favourite teacher among our students, and became the Head Coach of our fight team"
Lee Smith, Blood & Iron Martial Arts’ lead instructor
