Hello, my name is Jake Tapec. I was introduced to the world of martial arts at the early age of six. I've been involved for 25 years. I hold a fouth degree black in the art of "Tai Chi Chuan Fa Kungfu". I also hold a second grade black in the Filipino martial art "Doce Pares". I've recently switched gears and immersed myself into Mixed Martial Arts. I've realized that the ground game is no joke! Members here at TAPEC MMA & Fitness now utilize the stand up and ground techniques preparing them for the unexpected.
My goal is to pass on what I've gained through the years to anyone seeking personal growth physically, mentally and spiritully. I enjoy meeting new people and I believe in growing together. I teach people of all ages and learn something from all. I look forward to meeting you.
