Bio: Senior Master Instructor Joe Cosentino

I began my martial arts education in the tough Northside section of Pittsburgh as a kid. My first western martial arts lesson was from my father who was a boxer, in fact so were my uncles and my older brother, so that's were it began. I boxed at the local boys club and happened to come upon a judo class one day. I really enjoyed it and began to explore eastern martial arts. I don't think there was anyone who wasn't influenced by Sigung Bruce Lee and David Carradine in the Kung Fu series, but back then there was karate and karate only. I began training in the O Sensei Trias Okinawan Shuri-ryu system under Grandmaster Frank Caliguri in 1970. Later I began training in the Hee Il Cho system of Taekwon-Do. It was old school and very similar to Kyokushin style karate. My instructor was very heavy into the Bart Vale Shoot-fighting training as well. I later added Muay Thai to my training and have spent many years in it. Over the years I was looking for a weapons program and found an instructor nearby who taught Kali. His name is Mataas Na Guro Hal Deily he had been with Guro Dan Inosanto for more than 25 years when we first met. I absolutely fell in love with this style as it combined Kali, Muay Thai, Silat, BJJ, JKD, Jun Fan Gung Fu and Wing Chun under what I came to realize was the greatest martial artist alive, Guro Dan. I have continued to seek out additional training so I can bring it to my students, for to teach is to learn at its highest level. I have trained boxing, Muay Thai and mma fighters over the years. Martial Arts is a very big part of my life and I want to pass it on to my students.
