Welcome to Filipino Personal Defense Systems – a site dedicated to giving you the ability to live your lives with more confidence and less fear through physical training and martial arts instruction.
The Man Behind Filipino Personal Defense Systems – Alexander Gruezo
I’m Alex. I’m a 40 year old guy from NYC who strives to live my life in the Big Apple unafraid of exploring and trying new things, staying active, mastering my art, and pursuing my passions and dreams with confidence and discipline.
In a city where everything is so fast-paced and the people seem a little too rough at times, I would not have been able to do the things I have been able to do if I did not have the physical capabilities and stamina that being fit has provided.
I would not have had the confidence and resilience to deal with such a diverse and, at times, hectic environment if it weren’t for the discipline and mental fortitude that martial arts has taught me.
And to be honest with you, if it weren’t for both fitness and martial arts together, I would not have been able to get out of the few altercations that I’ve encountered which this concrete jungle is sometimes known for.
I am the luckiest man to have such wonderful people in my life- a great girlfriend, family, friends, teachers, and mentors. I’m not famous or own anything fancy but I am able to live my life with confidence, strength, and vitality.
So why Filipino Personal Defense Systems?
With this site I want to share with you all that I know and all that I discover to help you get physically and mentally fit to protect yourself, your family, your friends, and your loved ones. I’m not here to show off and tell you that I’ve got it all figured out because I don’t. I’m still learning as well. And I hope that my experiences – both my successes and my failures – will educate you in the process.
FILIPINO PERSONAL DEFENSE SYSTEMS IS ABOUT CONSTANT NEVER-ENDING IMPROVEMENT
I don’t have all the answers but with your help I’m hoping we can find them together. My expertise may be in martial arts and fitness but it doesn’t mean I’m not trying to master other aspects of my life (i.e. relationships, business, etc).
I hope to learn as much from you as you learn from me.
