See my short interview of Joe Robaina below. Joe has an extensive Background & Training in two fields: Martial Arts & Healing Arts. Known in marital arts community as the “Medicine Man” for his degrees and education in exercise physiology. I’d call him a super-nerd of marital arts or just theBrain. I only wish more martial artists had scientific and academic training like Joe Robaina. He has both the healing touch and defense touch. Very few have that ability.
Academic Health Certifications:
Exercise Physiology-B.S. (Provided personal fitness training services throughout college. At 23, he opened my first personal fitness training studio.)
Master of Sports Science.
Doctor of Naturopathy (The practice of naturopathy is based on a belief in the body’s ability to heal itself through a special vital energy or force guiding bodily processes internally.)
Board Certified ANMCAB. Many states recognize as Doctors (not Florida).
Licensed Massage Therapist, MA37479, Jose M. Rodriguez (good standing).
Advanced Therapeutic Massage certifications and teaching; Certified Quantum-Touch Practitioner;
Certified Specialist in Performance Nutrition
As Joe explains, healing has always been part of the martial arts traditions.
