Daniel Pesina

Master Daniel Pesina is a gold medal winner in international as well as USA sanctioned martial arts tournaments. He gained his notoriety for his contribution to the Mortal Kombat franchise. He was the co-creator and actor who portrayed characters such as Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Reptile, Smoke, and Noob Saibot. Master Pesina gave physical form to creative concepts and designed the characters’ signature moves — hallmarks of the franchise that remain relevant in pop culture today. During the early promotional development of the franchise, Master Pesina was often asked to get a group of characters together for local, national and international tours, including choreographing fight scenes to be videotaped for ideas on how to translate the franchise into movies and live tours. Master Pesina has also done stunt work for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II movie as well as work on other independent movie projects.
He currently teaches martial arts at his dojo in Chicago, IL, and attends retro gaming events nationally and internationally. Because of his vast teaching experience and the iconic characters he portrays, his seminars are popular for marital artists, cosplayers and the casual enthusiast.
