Get To Know Our World Class Instructor

Alan Bio 2021 873x1024, Empire Defense and Fitness Albany NY
Hi, my name is Alan Condon, I am a lifelong martial artist and have been actively training for over 47 Years.

My training and thirst for knowledge in the Self Defense and combative arts have led me to train with some of the world’s top authorities.

I have Black Belts and teaching credentials in 7 different Martial Art styles…Krav Maga, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, American Kickboxing/Muay Thai, Kajukenbo, American Kenpo, Kuntaw/Arnis as well as Shootfighting and Close Quarter Battle/Military Tactics.

Being a noted seminar speaker and self-defense instructor has given me the opportunity to work with numerous Businesses, colleges, universities, women’s groups and children’s organizations and of course Martial Art schools across the United States.

Through the years I have trained various Law Enforcement Agencies in Weapon Retention and Close-Quarter Combat Techniques; including members of the Elite Navy SEALS, Army Special Operations Group, Marine Recon, Navy Special Boat Units, Army Rangers, Capital District Police agencies & SWAT TEAM’S, NYS Police & their Special Operations Response Team and the NYS Corrections CERT TEAM.

There are many S.W.A.T team leaders that consider me an expert in both Weapon and Empty-Handed Self-Defense, they have stated that my training have helped them survive as well as protect others.

The unique training and learning progressions that I have created offer a systematic, building-block approach to developing practical Martial Arts Skills for everyday people and their families.

Personally my training continues as I pride myself by leading by example and I currently train daily, focusing on achieving new levels of skills myself, you are welcome to come join me on this Journey of self excellence.

Look forward to meeting you and helping you with the your Self Defense & Fitness goals.

See you soon!!!
