Margo is a great instructor. Highly recommend if you'd like to learn some new self defense skills.
One of the best and most informative self defense courses I have ever taken. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to protect themselves as well as have a fun workout! :)
Brian was a patient and flexible instructor. As a beginner, it was refreshing to have an instructor that was willing to go slow and explain things more than once. My friend and I had a great time in his classes, and I left feeling like I had learned a ton of new skills (especially self defense!).
When being taught self defense by him, he went through everything step-by-step and always was had me go through the movement one step at time until I go the hang of it.
Master Robert Bombalier of Absolute Self Defense is a representation of unbridled professionalism in every sense of the word. While other schools of martial arts may focus on basics, sparring, or endurance testing, Master Bob's versatile knowledge of varying styles combines to create a more extensive and practical understanding of modern self-defense, as well as a better method of learning and practicing the martial arts. With an extensive knowledge of kinesiology, Master Bombalier has the unparalleled ability to fine tune your self defense training to a personal level. Robert Bombalier's teaching style instills lessons of respect, discipline, and beneficial personal development through all aspects of life. For me, starting off with martial arts as a young child, and continuing to study the ways of self defense into young adulthood, I can certainly say that Master Bombalier's influence and guidance in my training remains impeccably beneficial. For example, an extensive amount of my training went into dealing with anxiety, controlling fear, and handling my day to day struggles with asthma, of which all I have been given the chance to manage thanks to his service. In my time with Master Bob, I have watched as people from all walks of life come together to learn how to strengthen themselves in the realms of self defense, prepare themselves in case of emergency, and most importantly better themselves in the process under the guidance and instruction of this professional martial artist. Martial arts requires key, inherent characteristics of those in participation including effort, etiquette, character, sincerity, and self-control, and no-one I have ever studied under embodies these beneficial qualities more than Master Robert Bombalier of Absolute Self Defense.
We've been taking karate at American Kenpo Karate in both group and private class for two years. As an educator who works with both kids and young adults, I appreciate their care and professionalism. I know my daughter is safe with her instructors. She has thrived under their study and has earned her belts through hard work and well executed katas. In addition Kenpo is the best form of self defense for karate. The classes teach discipline, excellent form and responsibility. I would look here before considering anywhere else. They are a step above the rest!
I started boxing lessons with Chuck about 8 months ago. With no prior boxing or martial arts experience, I had no idea what to expect when walking into a boxing gym. I started my search online, looking at reviews and prices. Luckily, I decided to try out Classic Boxing Coach and struck gold. Although not fancy or over-the-top, the gym has all the equipment one would need (at least from what I can tell). It's never too crowded but also never lacks energy. All of the other trainers and members that I have met have been warm and welcoming, always willing to chat or share a funny story. When walking into a boxing gym for the first time ever, I expected an intimidating, intense, and cold competitive environment; yet this gym offers a hard-training atmosphere with only positive vibes and good spirits. Chuck is an amazing trainer. I think the best thing about his training is his positive and energetic attitude. He is one of those people who is always present in the moment. He puts his focus and attention onto whomever he is training. He brings in the perfect blend of mental and physical toughness. Chuck explains the sport both philosophically and technically, while still putting the athlete through hard physical workouts. The training experience at Classic Boxing Coach comes with a great balance between training and fighting. There is enough sparring to create excitement and anxiety (if one chooses to spar), but not so much that each week is an all-out fierce battle with other members. Overall, I've had an incredible experience so far at this gym. I've learned the technical aspects of boxing, had great and grueling workouts, and had some good battles in the ring. Chuck is a great coach and an even better person. He always puts the clients first. I highly recommend this gym for anyone thinking about starting boxing or switching gyms.
Very straight forward, real world applications, which is exactly what we need - just get right down to it. We have tried other self defense courses which spend a lot of time on learning discipline and self control (which is great if that's what someone is looking for) but this jumps right in and we're learning real world techniques in the first minute. Highly recommend and looking forward to the next session.
I love this dojo! its clean, fully equipped and matted. Not like some others schools in the area that just train on carpet and use hard flooring. Blisters on the feet from carpet burns are not fun. Duarte Shotokan teaches Real Karate from a traditional lineage and it is a safe place to train, especially for kids. All the instructors and assistants are very kind and caring too. I have been in class for a few weeks already and I love the intense workouts and practical self defense lessons that are taught. I would recommend Duarte Martial arts Academy to anyone looking for a fun, safe and caring dojo.
Scott's classes really helped my son! We had just moved here and he was getting bullied by some kids at school. After two months my son was able to defend himself and I was surprised to see how much his self confidence grew too

Made to be learned quickly most students advance quickly and learn valuable self defense techniques in a matter of weeks. The student will begin to learn these self defense techniques starting with the first class. Successful execution of defending oneself does not depend on the strenght of the practitioner, rather it is the method that is applied. The techniques that are taught are simple, straight to the point and easy to learn. My teaching method is very hands on with a great attention to detail, the student is built up with each class session. I offer quality martial arts self defense training at a reasonable price, more expensive does not always mean something is better. The greatest reward I receive is watching someone grow in the art and gain confidence knowing they can protect themselves. In the class I am very approachable and all questions are answered.

Learn self defense at home. We offer a mobile service. We will come to you and train you in the most effective form of self defense. This is not sport fighting or MMA. It is straightforward, using leverage, timing and distance, kicks , punches, joint locks and the fighting mentality . You learn how to use sticks and knives, as you learn the hand-to-hand techniques. We will need a small room or carpeted area to train in. Private lessons will run about 45 per hr. Similar to krav maga and many other arts as Kung fu San Soo is one of the oldest martial arts in the world. Now contracted to teach class at the community center at 1st st. in yucaipa. It is better if we are training 2 persons at a time. We will train large groups if needed. Price is per person. My experience in self defense is (verifiable).
