This philosophy was taught to David, (the owner of Florida Safety & Health Educators, LLC), by Master Jimmy Robinson who was David's first martial arts instructor.
This philosophy has become the cornerstone of a long and distinguished circle of learning and teaching. David has spent the last thirty plus years teaching things that are of primary importance to him, his family, and the community. At the young age of ten, David was the target of severe bullying. David's father hired a Coral Gables Police Officer named Jimmy Robinson to teach David self-defense. Master Robinson had combined different styles of fighting into his own unique system. For years, Master Robinson not only taught David how to defend himself, but also taught lessons on eastern culture and philosophy.
When David became a police explorer, he began learning about First Aid, CPR, and firearms. This led David to begin the quest of sharing his knowledge and experiences. At the age of fourteen David became the youngest American Red Cross CPR & First Aid Instructor in the State of Florida. David's enlistment into the United States Marine Corps augmented the lessons already learned about fighting and combat skills. His diverse careers in: law enforcement, firefighting, emergency medical services, teaching, and high risk security continue to add to an ever growing number of subjects and skills in his repertoire. David's bachelor's degree in Human Resources Development, (with a minor in Psychology and Education), combined with real world experiences enables FL.S.H.E. to deliver the best of both learning environments.
The opening of Florida Safety & Health Educators, LLC has been the culmination of over thirty years of education and experience. David had, or currently holds, over thirty instructor ratings in subjects including: self-defense, life saving skills, firearms, weapons, and police training, as well as youth education and adult learning. In addition to having been a junior high school teacher David is an instructor, adjunct professor, or facilitator for numerous companies, educational institutions, government agencies, and civic groups.
