Joe Campanella’s toughness comes in part from his training in the martial arts. Joe is a black belt in karate and former UFC-style fighter. A graduate of Boston Latin, the same school that JFK attended, Joe later played semi-pro football and fought in a real life fight club known as J Kim’s in Brookline, Mass.
Joe met Dave at a brawl after one his semi-pro football games and they have been close friends ever since. When he’s not working with the Rozzi Crew, Joe owns a karate school where he teaches martial arts to autistic kids.
His love for the art of self-defense is reflected in his reputation: he’s tough but he’s also thoughtful and fair.
