MEET OUR HEAD INSTRUCTOR

Sifu Nathan "Mabilis" Marinone has been in the Martial Arts for over 30 years and has trained extensively in a wide range of Martial Art systems both along the east coast and across the country starting with the Korean art of Tae Kwon Do in 1992. Since then he has been featured in several forms of media (printed/digital) and has had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of people from the average man and women to the business professional to those in the armed services along with those who have disabilities. He has taught several seminars throughout the New England area and has quickly become one of the premier up and coming practitioners on the east coast.​ 

He is a senior representative for Phoenix Martial Arts and a Full Instructor in Jeet Kune Do, Filipino Kali, and Buka Jalan Silat under Sifu Greg Pichardo as well as an Instructor in the Magda Institute Association directed by Sifu Cass Magda. 

 

In addition, Sifu Nate is also a Black Sash graduate in Wing Chun Kung Fu and was the first person to receive the title of “Sifu” under GM Leung Ting 1st generation student, Sifu Ed Chow of New England Wing Chun.

 

Currently, he is the only individual in the state of Connecticut to hold an advanced rank in GM Angel Cabales art of Serrada Escrima with the level of Lakan Tatlo (3rd degree black belt) under Guro Anthony Di Sarro of Capital District Martial Arts Center.
