We weren't sure what to expect from a self-defense class, but Max offered me a good breakdown over email prior to the coming in to teach, and once here, he was good about demonstrating techniques and allowing the class to do as much or as little as they were comfortable with. I found Max's lessons to be practical for the common person, and his teaching style is to the point, but relaxed. He'll answer questions as you go along and help you to chain together the different things he teaches you. We've asked him back for every other week, so he's definitely doing the right things! We have a lot of fun, but also learn a lot from Max.
Vince is an incredible coach! I have been taking classes and private lessons from Vince for almost five years now, and it has changed my life! I've lost weight, learned many new skills, improved my balance, and most importantly I've gained confidence in myself! This is thanks to Vince's amazing ability as a teacher and coach. He pushes you without taking you too far, he gives you that vote of confidence you need to push through when it gets tough, and his attention to detail will ensure that you become the best athlete you can be. He has brought me from a person who has never thrown a kick to a confident martial artist, thanks largely in part to his level of personal attention - he makes time for all of his students to ensure that everyone grows and improves as much as they can. During private lessons, you get an amazing amount of personal attention and direct support - Vince does not teach a one size fits all program. My private lessons with Vince are an amazing chance to have him push me to work hard, improve my skills significantly, and gain confidence! Vince is patient, observant, and so supportive when he works with his students! I wouldn't be the athlete and martial artist I am today had it not been for Vince's teaching. I recommend him for anyone who is looking for a teacher and trainer to help them become their best!
Niko Skuljan and I met nearly three years ago (come this June) I posted an Ad on Craigslist for a private one on one Martial Arts instructor (I moved up from San Francisco to Sonoma full time 3 years ago) and decided to give up my Martial Arts trainer in the city, and Niko responded. We agreed to meet, go over in great detail, what my background in training was, what was important for me in my training, and his philosophy on Combat training, in other words....a very comprehensive consultation. The followoing week we began our training. I have been involved in one form of Martial Arts for years, whether it be Judo, A little Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing and now, with Niko, traditional Boxing, Muay Thai (or Thai kickboxing) as well as Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee's form of Martial Artistry) as well as a little Wing Chun. Niko Skuljan is very adverse in ALL of these forms of combat training! He is passionate, very patient, always reliable and extremely knowledgeable! And has an eye like a hawk! Nothing gets by Niko! Never fails to correct your form or stance, but also demonstrates it for you, so you have a visual to go by. We film our sessions, and He and I agree, that is a great way to see whatever might need correcting or what is being executed precisely! He and I have developed a friendship as well (as he is a highly intelligent individual and someone you feel an immediate connection or bond with) Even if Niko is delayed with traffic (as he lives in a different town then Sonoma) he is always fair and we always make up the time on another day of training. I would highly recommend Niko Skuljan to anyone that is considering taking their Martail Arts training to a much higher level! He certainly has mine! Len H. Sonoma, CA
Martin is fantastic. His self defense lessons made an immediate difference. He makes things fun and customizes to exactly what you are looking for. I highly recommend working with him.
I am the lead guitarist and lead singer for Rocks Valentine and have been giving guitar lessons since 2006. My last student now performs at various coffee shops in San Mateo. I teach the basics, e.g., chords strumming, first position, and note reading. I guarantee that you will be able to play a song on your very first lesson.

I've had one lesson with Cindy so far and loved it! She walked me through proper techniques and we did a variety of self-defense training so I was constantly challenged and learning. I can say that after one lesson I already feel much more prepared, but I'm looking forward to learning more and getting stronger in the process! I'd recommend Cindy to anyone who is looking for the perfect balance of self-defense lessons and working out!
We will help you. We use a lot of things to build things and more. We help with a lot of stuff, and I am the only coach.
Having lived in Japan for 8 years does not make me a better instructor, in and of itself. Nor does having been a tournament champion. 35+ years doing Karate and several years doing other martial arts helps my level of understanding. Having a deeper technical knowledge than almost anyone else outside of Japan helps as well. But what really sets me apart is the passion that I have, not only for Karate-do as a way of life, but for teaching it in a way that helps students progress as quickly as they are capable of.
