Many thanks to student and friend, Phil Pape, for playing a key role in bringing Greg’s vision to life. Giving his time, labor and expertise in building the gym, he saved Greg a great deal of money and headaches.

Phil, Dominic Escuela, Eddie Ardon, and the team of students unselfishly provided their time and efforts to the creation of ASSG. Special thanks to Willi Wong for providing help with finances and encouragement to open the gym. In addition, he was instrumental in not only designing the layout for the gym, but also the unique logo that defines our philosophy. Their generosity and hard work will always be remembered and appreciated.

Greg appreciates those in the martial arts and boxing world for their teachings, advice and wisdom.

Last but not least, Greg would like to give a heartfelt thanks to his mother Esther Ardon for all the support and believing in him and his late grandfather, Moises Ardon, for introducing him to the sport and teaching him since childhood and for his love and encouragement through the years.
