Assistant Instructor / Red Belt
Originally from Massachusetts, Joe relocated to South Florida in 2007. I currently work in Marketing and live with my wife and step daughter in Coral Springs.
I became interested in fitness in my mid-twenties and since then I have always been physically active. I started getting tired of the same old gym routine and wanted a new challenge. I did a search for self defense schools and I found Riddle Defense. Since I had no prior self defense experience, walking through the door that first night was intimidating but after meeting John and Leigh I decided I would give it a shot. Since then, the school has become my second home. I have been with the school for about five years and it has been an amazing experience. I consider John and Leigh to be great instructors and the school has all the equipment and tools needed to learn and succeed.
John and Leigh have put forth a lot of time and effort into creating a good learning environment where both men and women at different skill levels can feel comfortable training in. I am proud to be part of this school and I look forward to many more years of training hard and studying under John and Leigh.
