"Steve Gaulton is the premier instructor in the Adaptive Martial Concepts family. A close friend of mine for many years now, his dedication and loyalty have been unswerving. Steve has a mix of attributes that I believe are rivalled by few in the martial arts, he brings decades of traditional training, ring training, physical hard work and years of real-life self-protection to the table. I've had the pleasure of going toe-to-toe with Steve on many occasions and I can personally testify that he can make his art work, functionally under full resistance, at the highest level. Perhaps more importantly, I have personally witnessed the love and care that Steve has for his students, he has truly created a wonderful family of people at GAMA. For all of these reasons, Steve is the only person I have ever put forward for instructor status under Guro Dan Inosanto, a recommendation that was accepted without hesitation. GAMA is, without question, the absolute benchmark for everything that our art stands for and I unreservedly recommend Steve's instruction to anyone, anywhere at anytime." MIchael Wright
