   My name is Joe DeFilippi, and I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, USA.  I am a proud parent of 3 boys and a lovely wife.

    My hobbies include breaking bricks, weight-lifting, hunting, teaching kids martial arts, and speed brick breaking.

    I am 6'2", 300 lbs and have been on shows such as FOX 2 News in Detroit, America's Got Talent and traveled to Italy to perform on the live Italian TV show called "Guinness Book of Records", and the German show called "The Autumn Festival of Folk Music".  Please see my videos. 

     Other functions I've participated in include Speed Brick Breaking demonstrations for fundraisers, charities, various venues, and opening shows for concerts.

    My previous job roles include an electrician apprentice, maintenance staff, security services for night clubs, and personal protection.
