Where do I begin? I met Dave over 25 years ago I was introduced to him by my brother-in-law. At that time, I didn't know what his introduction was going to do for me in my life. I had taken different disciplines of martial arts but never anything too serious. Either I was bored or just didn't want t...

Training with Dave has changed my life in many ways. Dave is not just a great teacher but a great friend.

I would recommend anyone looking to better themselves in the martial arts world to use Advanced Fighting Systems. It is the place for you.
I have been training with Dave for 4 years, and it has been the best 4 years because I have learned so much! I couldn't ask for a better teacher. He is not the type just to tell you that you're doing a good job; he makes you the best you want to be and takes the time to show you the right ways.
After the first day of training with Dave, I knew that this was the best Martial Arts instructor and best fighting system I have encountered. I have trained in Martial Arts / hand-to-hand since 1987. After many years of experience & training, working as a bodyguard and surviving multiple encounters,...

I first trained with Dave in the 1990's. I started training with him again this year. The skills I learned all those years ago returned so quickly, it was like I never left. A great testimony to the art and Dave's training methods.
Just when you think you have seen everything, Sifu Dave Durch will come along and just completely blow your mind! This guy has a solution for any situation.

Training with Dave helped build strength and the ability to defend myself. I'm more aware of my surroundings and feel confident knowing that I have the knowledge and skill to handle different situations.

We have attended several seminars put on by Dave Durch, and I can honestly say that I and my students learned more in 3 days than most could in 2 weeks. Dave Durch is really raising the standards in mixed martial arts.

Thanks for the great lesson and awesome workout! Slept like a rock!

Out of all the systems I've studied, this is the only one that is training for the reality of what happens in the street. I look forward to many more lessons!
