At a young age, Baardsen excelled in Sport Karate Point Fighting at tournament competitions. As an adult he has won a total of 14 Grand Championships at both State and Regional levels.

In both 2010 and 2012 he was the number one ranked Point Fighter in the State of Wisconsin through the Wisconsin Black Belt League (WBBL) Tournament Circuit.

As a former Police Officer, Baardsen has firsthand knowledge of being in situations where individuals suddenly become violent.

In addition to his numerous certifications, rankings, and real-life experience he also has proven his skills by being a certified Defense and Arrest Tactics Instructor; through his instruction active duty officers learned how to control individuals who are combative or resisting arrest. He is also a certified Krav Maga Worldwide™ Force Training Instructor and has previously led classes for his former department where he taught his fellow officers the same principles and techniques of Krav Maga that he teaches at Impact Martial Arts.
