  1. i was there for about 1 year and nothing bad happened there were background checks and other instructors there while one-on-one training so it's just heartbreaking to hear all about this I knew him for a very long time and I know he would have never done something like this it's just sad to know that he is gone but he will forever be in my heart and he will be known as the guy who helped make it up to a purple belt😭❤
