"I have had the pleasure of having Jon teach at our club. He is a an excellent instructor under the great Mauricio Gomes.

It was the in-depth knowledge of technique, pressure and the small details often missed, that Jon brought to the class. His friendly manner and fluid instruction was enjoyed by all."
