About

I've been taking Kung Fu lessons from Xander for the last 6 years. He takes the time to teach me the true Kung Fu. Unlike other Kung Fu teachers that just care about the money. He has taken me from not knowing how to fight at all and taught me how to fight very well. I have also taken music lesson from Xander. He is exceptionally knowledgeable on the subject. If you want a true teacher call Xander!

About

My son and I have trained at Paragon for about 8 years now. It has given us more of a healthy life style and confidence. I would recommend Ricardo and team for any desired outcome (Weight loss, self-defense, MMA…). Paragon provides a great way to stay in shape and be healthy without having to run on the treadmill.

I had a wonderful experience training with Suzuki Sensei. Because I knew I was in good hands, I felt confident despite my absolute lack of martial art skills. Suzuki Sensei and her students, who were all patient and understanding, taught me well.

I am a fitness trainer and martial arts instructor. I will assess you for postural deviations, muscle imbalances, flexibility, and spinal-hip deviations. Your fitness and condition workouts will address all of these issues which will also include nutritional and diet consultations to maximize your health and fitness goals, whether you would like to lose a few pounds of fat or gain muscle. I also teach one-on-one and group self-defense training centered around close encounter combat training, such as the use of sticks, knives, guns, and your body for self defense and personal protection.

About

This is very different from other traditional or martial arts schools because this style emphasizes on the reality of self-defense rather than how to defend yourself in a controlled idealistic situation. Every drill and every exercise that is taught by the school translates to real combat applications such as sparring, sticky hands free flow, and self defense reactions. On the first day I was blown away by Sifu Lin's demonstration of impluse power how he doesn't need muscle or body weight to release the energy from his hand to the opponent causing much discomfort and pain. Looking forward to more hours of intense training!

Learn to box today! Hello! I am offering boxing lessons for beginners and intermediate boxers. I also am offering kickboxing and self-defense, which are included in the boxing lessons (if you want to learn kickboxing). I am an amateur boxer and have been in the boxing game for about 10 years. I have sparred with world champions and The Golden Gloves contenders, and I have been trained in different styles of boxing. I would like to pass on this information. My classes will consist of several or all of the following exercises: 1. Warm up - jump rope, running, walking stretching, push ups, chin ups, sit ups and shadow boxing 2. Lessons - learning the basics, perfecting the basics, drills, mitt work, and shadow boxing 3. Bag work - taking the info gathered from the lesson (I will show you how to punch, breathe, move, acquire offensive and defensive skills, etc.) It is a high-intensity workout. You will sweat and get a great workout. I charge $25 for one hour of training. Please call if interested. Dave P.S. The training I provide is also great for people who have only taken a boxing or kickboxing aerobics class at the gym. I will show you the real techniques that you can use in real situations (not the generic crap I've seen in those classes at the fitness gym).
