MMA Trainer
Kickboxing Instructor, 4th Degree Black Belt at Focus, 1st Degree Black Belt, Jiu-jitsu Blue Belt What Mike finds rewarding about being a kickboxing instructor: “Martial arts to me is a lifestyle not an activity. It has taught honor, respect, and integrity, and it’s helped me share those with others.” Since 1988, Mike Galindo has called Fort Lauderdale home. Mike graduated from Cardinal Gibbons High School, where he ran cross country and spent all four years on the wrestling team. After high school, he was introduced to martial arts and quickly developed a love for this discipline. It was a natural fit into his lifestyle, as it helped him further his self-motivation and self-discipline. Mike currently holds a 4th degree black belt at Focus and a 1st degree black belt from a traditional martial arts school. He is currently a blue belt in Jiu jitsu, and he has over 12 years training in martial arts. Mike works with people of all ages, from children to mature adults, who want to learn martial arts. Often complimented on his patience as an instructor, Mike teaches a variety of skills from kickboxing to weapons training. Very goal-oriented, Mike helps you discover your own inner motivation so you excel. Training with him, you can expect to leave sweaty, smiling, and sore – yes, all three! You will definitely get an intense workout in his classes, and you’ll love every minute of it. Outside of teaching at Focus MMA & Fitness, Mike enjoys spending time with his lucky pup, Laddie. You can find him here even on his off days training in martial arts. Mike’s workout philosophy: “The harder you train, the harder you can train.”
