is the founder and owner of Eatontown Martial Arts and its systems. 

Master Des Jardin had his first karate lessons at age 4 in New York City where he was born but does not consider that as his starting point of training.  It was as a young adult he decided that Martial Arts was to be his way of life. He developed an extensive background in Tae Kwon Do, Jeet Kune Do, Gracie's Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Filipino Stick Fighting known as Eskima, Kali/Arnis and other weapons, to name a few.  To this day, Master Des Jardin continues to train himself mentally as well as physically. 

He opened his original school on August 1, 1998 in Long Branch, NJ.  In June 2005, (roughly 7 years later) he out grew that location and relocated to a larger facility in West Long Branch where he and his team had another successful 10 years before the 15 store plaza caught fire. It would be nine months later when he realized that plaza was not going to be renovated for a very long time and  on July 1, 2016 he relocated to the current location on 30 Lewis St. Eatontown, NJ. 

Master Des Jardin remains committed to building and developing students of all ages into the best they possibly can be in a positive, safe and encouraging environment.  He believe as a student trains to become a Black Belt Champion, they will experience progress, growth and change in the dojang (classroom) as well as outside the classroom in many areas of their lives.


His innovative teaching methods and unique curriculum are designed to allow students to learn in a step-by-step fashion.  Over the course of training, students are gradually exposed to a variety of effective blocks, strikes and self-defense techniques that will promote confidence and physical fitness.

The method of self-defense taught at EMA incorporates the several different styles of Martial Arts mentioned earlier. This gives his students several options when defending themselves and also prepares them to deal successfully with any personal attack.


Master Des Jardin would be happy to answer any questions pertaining to your children and the success they will have training with him and know you are always welcome to stop by and visit us if you are in the area.
