Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

A Martial Art, Combat Sport and Self Defense System focusing on grappling and ground control. Since fights do end up on the ground, training in this martial art will enable you to defend yourself in this situation no matter what size you are.

Seminar TeachingGuro Ervin Quintin (pronounced kin · TIN) provides instruction in personal security with a physical and psychological toolbox.  In combining these attributes, awareness can be refined in not just a holistic fashion, but in a realistic point of view when it comes to self-defense.

While in the initial stages of his training, he looked for many ways to improve. An Aristotelian philosophy was shared to him by his close friend, Rick Blalock, "The highest form of learning is to teach." It was then he decided to take on the challenge of learning at another level which led to receiving his first instructorship with Frank Cucci. Through this instructorship, he was able to refine his own skills which paved the way to become an active instructor under Guro Dan Inosanto in the Filipino Martial Arts, Jun Fan Gung Fu and Jeet Kune Do concepts.  Additionally, he has become a student in Sayoc Kali and is the leader of the Sayoc Virginia Beach Training Group (SVBTG) with sponsorship under Sayoc Full Instructor, Guro Bob Shin. SVBTG is the only official Sayoc Kali practicing group in all of Hampton Roads area.  Also, his time in the Muay Thai community as a certified instructor under Ajarn Chai Sirisuite, has given great insight in the direction and training of each person that he encounters.  It is with his great passion and labor of love does he continue with this ever growing art in a way to positively share the lifestyle that martial arts has given to him.

 As a second generation Filipino that grew up in America, cultural information and practice was not always available.  Guro Ervin Quintin believes that in order to be a well rounded and diversified person, it is important to have culture part of the experience.  It can develop an enhanced form of discipline and respect.  So through the martial arts, the culture was experienced and the important questions could be formed in order to learn more about history and its influencial people.  This would not just be for Filipinos, but to any who wants to learn and be a part of the community.  Witnessing social gatherings that claim to educate its members, Guro Ervin Quintin has made it a point to share education in a form of activity within the martial arts. This education can be used as a key to a legacy that can unlock many doors that can bring generations together.

After more than 15 years of training and teaching, other existing resources has been pulled in to give the IMPACT program uniqueness.  Believing that real strength comes from the core, martial arts is then elevated into greater understanding of the mind, body and spirit.  With ever changing routines that constantly challenge the body, true strength and confidence is attained.
