The Warrior Athlete is a special skill, a fine art rather than just physical training for aesthetic appeal.
Dimitri began his martial arts training at the age of 13 in the art Chinese Gung Fu. He then continued to train extensively in different arts including Brazilian Jujitsu, Wing Chun, Kickboxing and Chi Gung meditation.
In 2002, Dimitri began training with Jerry Poteet, one of five individuals hand picked and privately trained by Bruce Lee, in the art of Jeet Kune Do. After spending years training privately and traveling with Jerry on seminars in Europe and the U.S., he was certified as one of only seven Full Instructors worldwide in Jeet Kune Do. Dimitri is also trained as an instructor by CFT / Warrior Diet creator Ori Hofmekler in exercise physiology and nutrition, and Dr. Darren Weissman in the LifeLine Technique.
After 25+ years of training and researching various martial art principles and health & exercise programs, Dimitri developed Somareti: Performance Training to ultimately enhance the Mind, Body & Spirit of each practitioner.
