Mike is a great instructor. I was a novice in the self defense game. Mike was patient and took time to provide proper instruction. Mike would spend time with each student and demonstrate proper techniques. I have moved out of state and can't find another instructor like Mike.

I have been training with Colton for a few months and I cannot rave enough about my experience. Colton trains me at my pace, always knowing when to push me to achieve more than I dreamed I could do. At 54 I just ran my first 10k race. An achievement that I thought was far beyond my reach before Colton began training me. Colton has also been training me on self defense that is both fun and practical. I truly cannot say enough about how amazing my training with Colton has been.

    Where do I began, Jarrod is an amazing coach hands down! When I first started training with him I always felt I was going to fail, but he believe in me so I started to, he got me in the best shape of my life and ready for a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament in 4 months in the boys division. Jarrod is the definition of intensity he loves doing this, and that's what makes his coaching that much more beneficial cause all he want you to do is try, never give up and push your self. By training with him I never thought it would effect my thought process my emotions and my life in such a positive way. I wouldn't want to train with anyone else. I have such high respect for Jarrod! Nothing but amazing coaching he's a joy to be around and he knows what he's doing! Why wouldn't you want a instructor like him?

    Amanda is wonderful! I was a bit nervous when deciding to choose and look for a personal trainer. Amanda from day one made it easy. From the initial free first training session, to her continuous support, nutrition knowledge and enthusiasm and energy that pushes you to achieve your goal! She doesn't let me give up and I need that. Her always friendly, positive personality keeps me coming back and looking forward to actually working out! Very lucky to have found her! Margie H.

    I have been a student of Sifu Daniel Quincy’s since 2009. Through his classes and practices, I feel that I really gained a skill that will benefit me for the rest of my life. Having dislocated my knee multiple times, I had a very poor sense of balance and was unsteady on my feet. Daniel has helped me gain my balance and, more importantly, shown me how to center myself. He has a deep knowledge of the human body and teaches how to use proper alignment and explain what motions are healthy or dangerous. This is invaluable since many of us have lost this inherent knowledge about how to use our bodies. Daniel is very approachable and welcoming, always inviting newcomers to come at any time. He is always open to questions and helps new (and old!) students understand the practices at all levels. He has a wealth of knowledge about the background and history of tai chi and qi gong, and this helps to put the practice into perspective. In the end, you will gain a practice that makes you feels great, gets your energy flowing and is wonderful for your mind, body and spirit!

    I have been a customer of Joe's for over a year now and I could not be more happy with the results that he has pushed me to achieve! He is very easy to talk to and get along with! Joe is a well rounded trainer and has a solid background in Kickboxing. I am constantly seeing results both mentally and physically because of the attention to detail that Joe provides with every workout. Looking forward to many more sessions!

      I have been doing Krav under Josh's instruction for six months and can tell you that the results are amazing. If you want to lose weight and tone up quickly he is the one to help you do it! More importantly, I have learned so much from his self defense training! He teaches you to be ready for any and every scenario that could come your way. The best part is that he charges half the price of other instructors that have way less experience. Josh is worth every penny, you won't be sorry! Misty

      About

      I've been doing martial arts since I was 12, and I started with tae kwon do and got my black belt by the age 14 and my junior instructor certification at the age of 16, and I have been teaching off and on since then. What you'll get from me and not anyone else is that I have studied every aspect of martial arts, from the physical kinesiology of the movements and techniques we do to exercise/weightlifting techniques and regimen composition and nutrition and eating habits and also the most commonly overlooked aspect, the mental and psychological (spiritual) side which is very important for a well-rounded martial artist and especially for anyone who wants to become a black belt. As for me, I am a third-degree black belt in tae kwon do but also a black belt in judo, hapkido, tae kuk mu sul, and aikido, as well as being well versed in many more style and arts. I competed in numerous point-sparring tournaments when I was younger and loved it. I also played high school football and college rugby which also effected effects my athletic style.

      About

      I am a more than 20-year practitioner of eskrima, which is a form of Filipino martial arts. I am highly knowledgeable in the "sweet science," which is boxing. I have a 4-year study of krav maga at University of Krav Maga located in San Francisco, CA. I am new to the area. My main goal and focus is not your money but to instruct and teach. At a very young age, I began my lifelong study of defending myself and my family. I aim to teach people who may need it. It is a way to have comfort and knowledge of themselves to protect them and their loved ones or property. Give me a call, or email me. I will beat any price quote out there that you have been given elsewhere. Thank you. Ricky
