Jeff RuthI have known Dave Carter for over six years now and since that time he has become a top level Mixed Martial Arts and Muay Thai Champion. What's more important is what he can do for you!

Dave is one of the head coaches for Team Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts. He provides no-nonsense, REAL advice in learning how to handle a fight whether your standing or on the ground. His system is proven and he will keep you on your toes and demand results from you!

Listen, there is a lot of cheap advice and material out there. The problem is nobody tells you how to use it. Its more of a shotgun approach with most Martial Arts Instructors. There's also plenty of expensive "take the cash" advice out there too. These can be expensive and a waste of your time in more ways than one.

If you want advice that tells you like it is and the results that you deserve then I would urge you to look at Dave Carter's proven system. If you want to ask me personally contact me anytime.

Vivek NakarmiDave Carter, where should I begin to describe him. It is very difficult to describe how amazing this man is both as a coach and a friend. I have trained both in USA and internationally but I have never met or trained with anyone like Dave. His style of training is truly unique and amazing. He has taught me to become a very good competitive fighter . I have trained with Dave and the technique he has provided me is just phenomenal.

Dave's training has taken my fighting (Muay Thai) into higher level, in fact, it has sky rocketed. His techniques are very unique and very very very effective in fights. I, myself, have used it in many of my fights and it is very effective. I am emphasizing the word UNIQUE a lot, that's because only one thing comes in my mind when I hear Dave's name "his unique style of training fighters".

Vivek winning another fight!I am very glad that I have gotten a chance to train with Dave. I like everything about Dave's training method but the best thing I like about his training is his unique style of explaining things (techniques) and he makes it very simple to understand. If you are looking for a trainer for you, both competitive and recreational or for weight loss, self-defense or anything, Dave is not only right but perfect person to contact. He will push you to the limit to get the result you want as he has done with me. He will take your game to whole new level.

Finally, I just want to say that in my dictionary fight, hard work, dedicated, amazing, unique, talented trainer etc.. (any kind) means Dave Carter. Don't miss out in this...

Dave Carter is BAD ASS! Now that I got that out of the way, I'll explain why it's a fact...

I'm an IT consultant who travels often for work. Since 2005 I've taken muay thai at 3 different schools to date. I met Dave when I began training muay thai at Team Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts in Arlington, VA in early 2006 and was immediately convinced he was the trainer I've been searching for all this time.

My Muay Thai and conditioning has improved immensely after just a few short months of training with Dave. Not only does he have a wealth of real world fight experience in and out of the ring, but he also possesses the ability to apply that knowledge to his students in a way that's easy to understand, learn and actually use.

Being a person that has been exposed to quite a few encounters outside of the ring, I was also interested in self defense techniques that might be more applicable for street situations. Dave was able to deliver on this request in ways I would have never imagined.

Dave was able to quickly provide real solutions to common situations I've had difficulty with in the past in a way that has my confidence skyrocketing. He even has an arsenal of Dave Carter Originals that you won't find being taught anywhere else. If have experience with any form of fighting, you'll immediately think "Wow, this guy knows his s__t!" In fact, he's so in tune with the reality of fighting, he was able to anticipate many of my questions before I had a chance to ask them!

You don't get results like this when you train with someone who learned from a video and/or has never been in the scenarios they're attempting to teach.

If you're interested in any form of fighting or self defense, do yourself a favor and schedule a session with Dave to find out what BAD ASS is all about. I bet you won't be able to do just one session.

As a side note... I've also evaluated 6-10 other schools since 2005 and can say that Team Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts in Arlington is top notch in every way. If you're in the area, don't miss your chance to hookup with Dave and the other instructors at this school.

If a picture is worth 1000 words, how many is a video?

Here's a "Sneak Peak" at just a LITTLE of what we'll be doing! Most trainers won't do this because they think you'll run off now that you know the exercises, and inside secrets, but I know what takes them beyond ordinary, and which SPECIFIC ONES CAN TAKE YOU TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!

Sam PerdomoI have learned so much from Dave, his fighting concepts from Submission grappling, Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, or just basic Self Defense is revolutionary. I have been studying martial arts for about 8 and a half years with top instructors and Dave has COMPLETELY changed and improved what I have learned about the concepts of ground fighting, and standup fighting, and the psychology of fighting in and out of the ring. Dave knows his S_ _ _!!!

There are tons of ways to get in shape, you can get in shape in a gym, in your home, on a jogging trail, or in small hotel on the road, the only draw back is for every method there are the 100 or so pitfalls to watch out for, there's also FINDING THE WORKOUT FOR YOU. We're not all the same, we don't look the same, and we don't like the same things, but we can all get the body we want if we use the METHOD FOR US not for the other guy.

We've all heard those stories about how a friend, relative or coworker went on the Atkins diet and lost weight, but we've also heard how it won't work for others, or maybe jogging twice a day, but maybe you're not a jogger, maybe bad knees or ankles, so instead of groping around in the dark hoping to stumble onto the light. If you're serious about making a change for the better in 2009 then I think you owe it to yourself to look into personal training.


This is absolutely FREE!

This is an offer you can't pass up IF YOU'RE SERIOUS about making this the year for YOU.



See Coach Carter in Action!

This was the 2007 King of the Ring, a fight he took on only 2 weeks notice working 2 jobs at the SAME TIME!!!!

Imagine if he'd really prepared for it!
