Just want to give a review on Sensei Brian Hall I've had the pleasure of working Sensei Brian over the last couple of years. Sensei Hall is a very patient knowledgeable instructor with fantastic skills His mastery of martial arts coupled with a thorough understanding of nerve structure coupled with commonsense body mechanics is second to none. He practices the proper amount of control yet thoroughly demonstrates techniques. I wish him the best of luck in his new venture in California He's definitely missed here in the Northeast Jim McMahon Nidan Black Belt Excel Martial arts Norwood Massachusetts
I had a great experience learning martial arts through the amazing coaching staff that work step by step with everyone, they care about every individual and work on everyone's weaknesses and try to make everyone the best they can be, won't find better coaching
I have been taking martial arts (on and off) for the last 15 years and Nick has, by and far, been the most knowledgeable and invested instructor I have ever had. I really wish this thing had another start to give Sifu Nick. Give the Choy Lay Fut Academy a shot and you won't look back.
I was incredibly impressed when I started training under coach Pammy and I highly recommend her as a coach, she is an outstanding and very technical coach with great knowledge of the sport, as well as many years of professional experience. Classes are always very technical and I always get an amazing workout and learn new things every class. She is constantly there to help you and push you to do better and brings great positive energy to the class, If you do something wrong she will correct you, make sure you are focused, and show you the correct way just as any great coach would. Whether you are looking to compete or just get a good workout in Coach Pammy will push to make you better everyday and is more than willing to help you Exceed your goals.
I studied with Master Frank for about a year before moving out of Southern California. My experience could not have been better. He knows the martial arts extremely well and is an excellent instructor. He is particularly good with children, and his fees are very reasonable.
I'm real lucky to have found Sifu Denis Lavertu on thumbtack. I have been doing martial arts for a while, so I kind of knew what I was looking for, but knew very little about Win Chun. Denis made me a believer! Knowledgeable, patient, great teaching skills--always leave feeling like I've learned something I can use! I continue to train with him. A solid recommendation! K. Casey
