Scott Sullivan is a real-life martial arts professional who has been studying and teaching martial arts for over 26 years.
During this time he has become an expert instructor, teaching hundreds of students how to defend themselves, as well as build self-confidence, self-esteem and focus.
A brief list of Scott’s credentials includes:
After study in more traditional martial arts, Scott turned his attention to Thai boxing (Muay Thai) and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because of their proven effectiveness. Beginning in 1986, he studied with Thai boxing instructor Ajarn Surachai Siristue, the founder of the Thai Boxing Assoc. Of the U.S.A.
After a career in competitive kickboxing and training professional kickboxers, Scott began to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under various big names like Rickson Gracie, Relson Gracie, Royce Gracie, and John and Carlos Machado. Eventually however, he went with his close friend and jiu jitsu extraordinaire Mario Roberto, president of the Mario Roberto Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association and black belt protégé of Anibal Braga, as his primary instructor.
Known for his favorite move, a hard low kick to the thigh (which some have said feels like being hit by a baseball bat), Scott was billed on fight cards in places such as Las Vegas NV, Moscow Russia, and Tokyo Japan.
In fact, Scott’s ring experience in international kickboxing competition has enabled him to become a better teacher. Through this experience he is able to teach his students exactly what it takes to develop endurance, strength, tenacity and patience.
As for activities and achievements apart from martial arts, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife and seven children, shooting, and occasionally playing the Great Highland Bagpipes. Scott holds a BA in European History from the University of Southern Indiana, an MA in Philosophy from Holy Apostles College in Cromwell CT, and is currently completing his PhD work in philosophy at the Center for Thomistic Studies at University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX., where he formerly worked as an adjunct professor of philosophy. Scott has published articles on ethics in academic journals and is working on publications in philosophy of religion and metaphysics.
