Definitely looking forward to working with coach Margo for the long run. I was looking for someone to help me in both conditioning as well as self defense. This would be my first time having a personal trainer outside of my family. I was a bit nervous as I had just done research online and had not actually attended anywhere. Coach Margo was the first to respond to my request which was awesome. I was wanting something immediate as well. He was ready to start right away. Coach Margo was extremely professional and my Fiancee actually ended up wanting to train with him as well. I am excited to continue training with coach Margo in learning Muay Thai.

I am an athlete at heart and I found myself completely unhappy with my body and health about a year ago. After trying to work on my self esteem first, I decided in September it was time to get back into fitness like I had been my whole life. I came on thumbtack and scheduled meetings with five different trainers. I met with JJ first and cancelled the rest before I even had a workout with him. Honestly I hired him only based off of his personality and game plan for for getting me back into shape. He literally is one of the funniest people I have met. However he doesn't mess around when it's time to work. And each workout I find that he can push me to limits I didn't know I had. I have lost 24 pounds so far but have become so much stronger and healthier. We weight lift, do cardio, and he has taught me personal defense. I was skeptical paying money to get fit but I'm investing in my health and it truly makes me happy. (He is going to make fun of me for getting sappy on this but whatever he deserves it)

I completed the course Escape to Gain Safety with Miguel and I feel so good about it! I feel stronger and more confident that I can protect myself. Self defense isn’t just good for ladies, I saw many men in the classes that were strong but needed to know the proper techniques. Thanks Miguel!!!

I take a self-defense/kickboxing class with Jorge twice a week. He's an amazing instructor, able to teach practical self-defense and kickboxing concepts while giving me a great workout! The power, speed, and technique of my kicks and punches have improved drastically since training with him. Jorge, thanks so much for your guidance and knowledge. Let's hit those mitts again soon! You rock!

Lila was right on time (early, actually) and hit it off with my girls right away. She got down to business with them quickly and I could tell that although the girls were being challenged they were having fun. I look forward to seeing them progress in self defense technique over the next several weeks.

I enrolled my 12yr old son with Marty to help him stay focused, learn the basics of self-defense and Marty's unique technique of Lima Lama. Marty worked around my schedule and was extremely patient with my son. My son was always eager to go to Marty's classes. Learned so much from him. Thank you Marty!

I really appreciate how they custom fit each individual to there full potential ! For me and my wife it is equally important to work with someone that is easy going and personable! I can truly say that this dynamic duo is just that to sum it up knowledgeable, personable ,and very professional!

Wow! An hour goes so fast and I get a good workout plus learning Krav Maga. It is a friendly helpful environment that you are only in competition with yourself. Always encouraged to push yourself to do your very best. Lots of one on one because the instructors walk around the students when doing the drills/exercises and make suggestions and corrections as needed. (In Orange county I was charged $100.00 for 45 minutes for a one on one.) They have a wide range of people from children’s classes to adult classes with ages from teens to 70s. The common thread seems that everyone wants to learn Krav Maga, build self-confidence, get stronger and more fit while having fun. Can’t bet that!
