Sensei Jose Montes has been training in martial arts for almost 35 years. He first started training at the age of five, at his father’s school in Puerto Rico. A national delegate and a Judo coach for the 1976 Olympic team, his father was a true martial arts enthusiast, instilling Sensei Montes with the passion and appreciation he has today for the martial arts. By the age of eight, Sensei Montes was the Caribbean Judo Champion. Throughout his years of training he has competed in various Grappling and Challenge of Champion tournaments. He was also a Sectional and District champion in wrestling as well as a regional qualifier in PA. Sensei Montes has also earned his Bachelor’s Degree from Kutztown University in Business.
Sensei Montes’ experience in various styles of martial arts helped him see the quality and benefits of training with Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts. Beginning his instructor career in the late 90’s, he says TSMMA is, “The one-stop shop for me as a martial artist and as an instructor.” The knowledge he gained from mixed martial arts allows him to help his students understand what their options are in each and every position just as they may find themselves in during a real life self-defense situation.
Sensei Montes has also been featured in the Times Herald Record and the Photo News highlighting his Bully prevention, Woman safe, and Child Safe seminars which he holds regularly in his school and the surrounding community. Sensei Montes has taught many instructors from the Westpoint Military Academy, as well as the many local Police Officers. The discipline with which Sensei Montes approaches his craft is an amazing motivation for his students, not only with adults, but children as well. His unique style of teaching and attention to details builds confidence in every child. He instills the meaning of a “non-quitting” spirit in them, building their own sense of self discipline.
