Excellent coach and trainer. I learned helpful techniques for self defense and was able to get great conditioning work in as well. Highly recommend working with Coach Terry
My three children have been training with Jay since they were five years old. Now that they are becoming teenagers, they look to him for physical training but also as a life coach. Jay teaches self discipline and respect as he coaches. My wife and I have been training with Jay for the last one year. We have trained with Jay for fitness, self defense, kickbox, and jujitsu. Since we enjoy working with him, we have also scheduled our own private family classes with him. I learn something new each class and have fun at the same time. I have lost over 40 pounds in the last one year.
Battle Control MMA has been my second home for over 8 years now. Master Greg Lara (Sir), his family and his students are the most inviting, determined and passionate people you will find devoting themselves to the martial arts. Even though everyone trains to the fullest, grinds to get better and tap out their opponents, his students -much like a reflection of his teachings- work together collaboratively with a competitive spirit rather than succumbing to ego and self-prestige. If a pair of students are sparing and one is caught with a clean technique, the one who got caught will openly and happily acknowledge their defeat and give his/her teammate much deserved props. Although Sir teaches classes focused primarily on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he is also very knowledge about striking, as he has a 3rd degree in Tae Kwon Do. Family atmosphere and accepting attitude of the team makes Battle Control the academy I keep coming back to year after year, recommending it to friends and family as often as I can, spreading the word about this special academy.
Cornelius is an awesome trainer! I've lost 25 pounds and have kept it off for over a year. He works around my schedule for personal training and I go to his boorcamps as well. I love the kick boxing and self-defense drills he uses in my workouts too.
My experience with Gina through All Sport had been wonderful! I began sessions with Gina over a year ago as a self defense class, which has developed into a combination martial arts, self defense and overall body conditioning class. Gina is very professional, thorough, and works with me on developing personal strengths and skills. I highly recommend her as a unique instructor, first rate on all levels:) Best wishes, Stephanie M.
Thomas is a phenomal trainer, I would rate my overall expierence with him as an 11/10. His multi-faceted training approach targets everything from nutrition, personalized training regamines, recovery and supplementation. My sessions have included strength and interval training as well as self defense martial arts. I work in law enforcement and found a necessity to upgrade my hand to hand techniques which Thomas as helped me greatly improve. After several sessions with Thomas I was able to learn his diverse background in the fitness realm, from high school athlete to professional mixed martial artist. His training sessions were very specific to my need, and extremely intense as well. Not only is he an excellent coach that talks the talk with an encyclopedia of knowledge, he walks the walk. It's nice to see a trainer who practices what they preach and puts in the work. If you want an awesome workout and great session check him out.
Ray is great at communicating the basics in a way that is easy to remember. Sometimes trying to learn basic martial arts/self-defense can be intimidating but Ray created a very comfortable environment.
If you are looking to get in to your peak physical form, head to Pro-Fitness Athletics. I used to play pretty competitive hockey and I made it my mission to get back to my playing shape. While I only play in Mens league down in San Jose now, I consistently sit at the top of the league scoring and helped power our team to 2 CAHA state championships in the last 3 years. John, the owner of the gym, knows what it takes as an elite athlete. Having played in the NFL, he understands both the mental and physical components of your optimal self. The sessions are fun and energetic, John knows how to push people (in a good way) to make sure they reach their goals. Definitely recommend Pro-Fitness.
Freddy is by far the best personal trainer/coach I've ever trained with. He is dedicated to helping his clients reach their goals, no matter how big or small they might be. I have lost 15 lbs training with Freddy, and have significantly improved upon my striking ability, power, and hand speed. Freddy also offers strength training and I have become so much stronger since day 1! He pushes his clients to be the best version of themselves, and you won't regret investing in yourself and training with Freddy!
There is no need to spend several years in a martial art to learn how to defend yourself. Strength, size and athleticism are not required. We have special programs to meet anyone's needs, whether you are in the military, a senior citizen, or in a dangerous job which requires self protection. We teach classes on a one-on-one basis, or in groups. Right now, we are having group classes once a week at the Cubberly Auditorium in Mountain View from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Tuesdays.
Stand out? I don't know. If you want me to teach you how to fight or help you to improve, then so be it. But if you want me to give you a sales pitch on how I stand out, I honestly don't know. I've never thought of it before until now, and I'm most likely not going to even after the end of this sentence.

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.
I offer self-defense with a soft, offensive approach to personal safety. I teach in a manner to make you efficient and fastest.
We offer a richly designed blend of effective martial arts (Muay-Thai, Boxing, Jiu-Jtsu, Judo, Karate) which enables and empowers anyone to defend him/herself with confidence in any situation. I am a black-belt teacher and coach with over 20 years of experience. Get strong, fast, flexible and lean. We are now accepting new students.
"Women make some noise. Take charge of your life and defend yourself." United Studio of Self Defense, Foster City has an ongoing mission: to help the women in our community safeguard themselves against crime and assault, so they may enjoy a long, fulfilled and healthy lives. Our campaign is to help women to be well-informed, prepared with awareness, safety tips and basic defense maneuvers. Self-defense is for young girls, teens and women of all ages. We teach women in the workplace how to defend against using basic in-close kicks and strikes, using everyday keys, tools, writing instruments, self-defense weapons, e.g., kubotans (small metal or wooden stick). We teach to fend off realistic attacks such as two-hand grabs, single-wrist grabs, chokes, bear hugs, hair pulls and knife or club attacks. We work on strength and core training, which includes pad and bag work where women can really display their power and cardio endurance and fight back if they have to. Our program teaches the girls how to empower themselves mentally and physically, to know their surrounding and to prevent becoming a victim of kidnapping, assault, rape or murder. One out of 5 women are attacked in the US, which includes statistics even from our universities. Girls have a higher ratio of kidnappings compared to boys, just as women fall victim compared to men. In the US alone, not including worldwide statistics, 11,766 women were killed through domestic violence and 24 experienced intimate partner violence per minute. Our campaign is to reduce these stats. It's important to safeguard the women of our community, to fight for a safe place to live and work. The women in our program can customize the class schedule and include female family members or friends, a social club or work team. The sessions range from 1 hour to 2 hours and some will sign up for an ongoing program. We are available every day of the week, weekdays, Mondays through Fridays, from 12:00 to 9:00 p.m. and on Saturdays, from 9:00 to 2:00 p.m. and Sundays, from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. Many of the women who complete our training have a great time and learn a lot about themselves and their surroundings, feeling the empowerment from within, feeling fearless to impact their own lives. "Let's plan our first workout!" Ms. Regina Pinpin-McComb United Studios of Self Defense/Chief Instructor
