Genesis Tattoo & KnuckleUp Gym: Instructor Spotlight
On our first Instructor Spotlight, we'll talk a little about Dave Bein, creator of Genesis Tattoo.
Dave Bein goes beyond the definition of a well-rounded guy; he's an extremely gifted tattoo artist, a huge fan of martial arts (he's got a black belt in Karate from his father, who was a Chuck Norris student!), a KnuckleUp instructor, and a darn-good graphic designer on his spare time.
Dave's history with Martial Arts and fitness began when he was a child, and his dad (freaking Chuck Norris' student) taught him Karate. By age 19, he had already trained Judo, Boxing, and Jiu Jitsu, and was involved with the so-called NHB fighting (No-Holds-Barred, previous to the MMA scene).
Dave And The OBX Gym
KnuckleUp is honored to have Dave teaching special Kickboxing classes, and when his schedule allows, sparring on the ring with the students. With the opening of the brand new Genesis Tattoo location, however, Dave has been away from the gym, which we hope will change soon.
His entrepreneurial, multi-faceted character brings an unique approach to the fitness program at KnuckleUp, and completes a team of highly qualified instructors unlike any other gym's.
We shot a couple of videos of Dave's place so check it out:
