"Regardless of your level of experience, either in the Martial Arts or Cross-Training (&lifting), you will never be disappointed with how you will be pushed and encouraged to move past your boundaries and constantly improve. Learning Krav Maga these past few months (bear in mind, I started with absolutely zero experience), has not only improved my fitness immensely, but left me with a surprising amount of confidence that I wasn't expecting as a result of these classes. I would absolutely recommend taking any of the classes offered. I particularly enjoy learning martial arts, as it's a discipline I never imagined I could do but has quickly become a passion of mine. Also, I love attending the morning cross-training classes as I've learned new techniques to increase my strength while always ensuring I'm performing movements correctly and will not injure myself (I've previously had several shoulder surgeries). Large egos are unwelcome, so have no fear if you are very new to any of the disciplines, as you will be welcomed just as much as the most advanced student in the class. I highly recommend Sparta Academy. It's not all serious either, in case you're concerned. It's a community of highly professional, but real people who aren't afraid to joke and laugh in between sets. Everyone is personable and welcoming, and you're certain to get your money's worth."

"So much more than martial arts alone! We have been learning from Master Alonzo (camps and classes) since the summer of 2016 and have been continually impressed by (and grateful for) his outstanding instruction. His whole-child curriculum and implementation of it are both first-rate. Every exercise and activity is intelligently calculated for the desired result, which is children who are mindful, empathetic, strong, confident, respectful of themselves and others, prepared, skilled, and able to defend themselves and others verbally and physically against everything from verbal disrespect to unwanted touches, to violent assault. A thorough understanding of child development guides his age-appropriate instruction, and he leads the class in a fluid, engaging way that is both effective and entertaining. He's great at adjusting his tone on-the-fly as he "reads the room" and the result is optimal "classroom management." He has the kids squealing with laughter one moment and silently revering him the next, and matches his humor/seriousness balance and flow to the maturity and behavior of the students. Everyone loves him, respects him, has so much fun, and really learns! Best of all, it works. My son was bullied for an entire school year. I brought him to Master Alonzo the following summer for camp and after that point my son was able to put a quick end to the bullying on his own without conflict because of his newfound confidence and ability to assert himself calmly and clearly in his own defense. I highly recommend Master Alonzo and his classes, camps, and after school programs!"
