SCOTT "BAM BAM" SULLIVAN, CHIEF INSTRUCTOR





Scott Sullivan is a real-life martial arts professional who has been


studying and teaching martial arts for over 26 years. During this time


he has become an expert instructor, teaching hundreds of students


how to defend themselves, as well as build self-confidence,


self-esteem and focus. A brief list of Scott's credentials includes:




  • Muay Thai Boxing Specialist & Trainer (over 24 years experience)
  • 1st Degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
  • Former U.S Heavyweight Kickboxing Champion
  • Former U.S. Heavyweight Shootboxing Champion
  • Trainer of both amateur and professional fighters (MMA, Kickboxing)
  • Former Indiana Representative for the Thai Boxing Association of the U.S.A. (1990-1993)
  • Author of several instructional DVDs, including the famous Complete Muay Thai Home          Study Course.





After study in more traditional martial arts, Scott turned his attention to Thai boxing (Muay Thai) and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because of their proven effectiveness. Beginning in 1986, he studied with Thai boxing instructor Ajarn Surachai Siristue, the founder of the Thai Boxing Assoc. Of the U.S.A.


After a career in competitive kickboxing and training professional kickboxers, Scott began to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under various big names like Rickson Gracie, Relson Gracie, Royce Gracie, and John and Carlos Machado. Eventually however, he went with his close friend and jiu jitsu extraordinaire Mario Roberto, president of the Mario Roberto Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association and black belt protégé of Anibal Braga, as his primary instructor.









As a competitor, Scott held U.S. Heavyweight titles in both kickboxing and shootboxing from the Universal Kickboxing Federation and the United States Shootboxing Association.


Known for his favorite move, a hard low kick to the thigh (which some have said feels like being hit by a baseball bat), Scott was billed on fight cards in places such as Las Vegas NV, Moscow Russia, and Tokyo Japan.





In fact, Scott's ring experience in international kickboxing competition has enabled him to become a better teacher. Through this experience he is able to teach his students exactly what it takes to develop endurance, strength, tenacity and patience.


As for activities and achievements apart from martial arts, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife and seven children, shooting, and occasionally playing the Great Highland Bagpipes. Scott holds a BA in European History from the University of Southern Indiana, an MA in Philosophy from Holy Apostles College in Cromwell CT, and is currently completing his PhD work in philosophy at the Center for Thomistic Studies at University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX., where he formerly worked as an adjunct professor of philosophy. Scott has published articles on ethics in academic journals and is working on publications in philosophy of religion and metaphysics.
