Neil is awesome… a very skilled martial artist, motorcyclist, super great guy.  I love training with Neil, and honored to have him on my mats.

here’s a short bio:

A Mechanical Engineer with an M.S. degree, Neil began his dedicated martial arts practice in 1990, training both in Aikido and Uechi-Ryu Okinawan Karate. He holds a black belt in Karate and a 4th degree Blackbelt in Aikido. Neil also has a Blue belt in no-gi submission grappling in Eddie Bravo’s organization 10th Planet Jiujitsu which he’s been training in since early 2009. Complementary training includes violence dynamics, weapons work, and self-defense. Neil is currently working on his San Francisco Combat Systema website but in the meantime, for more information, he can be reached directly at nbednar@gmail.com.
