"As a martial artist, I am always working to learn more in every aspect. One thing I always lacked was an understanding on nutrition. I worked with Mark in preparation for the Eddie Bravo Invitational, and Mark educated me on nutrition and dieting and broke it down in a very simple way. He provided a loose guideline of the foods I should be eating, when I should be eating them and in what ways that was tailored for my competition. He answered many things I was always curious about and did not overcomplicate anything. I still use the principles he taught me today.
Since then, I also brought Mark into my martial arts school, Masterskya, for a workshop on mobility for grapplers. He taught us body movements and exercises that were functional for fighters, and I have implemented several of those movements in our daily warmups.
I highly recommend Mark from both perspectives and think he has an amazing amount of knowledge for anyone looking to understand fitness/nutrition further."
