The History of Ron Balicki

Balicki grew up in Chicago, Illinois. In 1987 he became a Deputy Sheriff for Cook County, Illinois. He helped form a “Special Operations Resistance Team” which trained officers in riot control. Around this time he served as bodyguard for Hollywood movie and music stars including Steven Seagal, Public Enemy, Kid ‘n Play, Queen Latifah and D.J. Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith. Ron began training in the martial arts in the late 1960s, and in 1982 began studying with Dan Inosanto. Balicki earned his full instructor certification under Inosanto in the arts of Maphilindo Silat, Filipino Kali, Eskrima, and Jun Fan Gung Fu (Jeet Kune Do concepts). In addition, Balicki also trained CRCA Wing Chun with Sifu Randy Williams. Balicki has traveled extensively to train Military and Paramilitary organizations from the DEA to local law enforcement agencies, including Navy Seals, Anti-terrorists, the French Secret Service and Homeland Security personnel.
