I had been exercising for about a year now by myself but decided to hire a trainer. I've been working out with Vinny for two months now and my body has changed more in the past two months than in the past year. Vinny has taught me from basics: how to breathe correctly during my exercises, proper posture, how to target and isolate certain muscles.. to kickboxing and self defense. Vinny is the type of trainer that will go the extra mile and help you achieve your goals. I def recommend him.
I've been training with Martin for about two months now. I have about a year background in martial arts. I really enjoy all of the different mixed martial arts he's been teaching me. Not only are they fun, but everything he teaches I believe is highly effective during a confrintation on the streets. The combination of kickboxing, Lima lama, and Kung fu, and other martial arts equips one for the many different scenarios that may take place during a street fight. He breaks everything down in complete detail, step by step. I highly recommend Martin if you are interested in self defense.
I am a fighter, who has went up (fought) against Mr. Aaron (Speedy) Swenson for a title belt in 2010 (I lost to him). When it comes down to it, Speedy, knows and understands the craft Of Kickboxing, and other rule forms. He is very knowledgeable in the aspect of physical fitness and actual discipline of the art form. Speedy has several years of training and teaching under his belt with actual road work of the combative sport. He will teach you the combative sport for Fitness or for the actual discipline (to defend yourself) His nick name of speedy came from the speed of his punching and kicking skills. If I were you, I would allow Speedy to train me, and would pay him for his knowledge and skills. I promise, he will teach you to the very best of his abilities and treat you with respect. also, not to mention he is a very personable person and has an up beat personality. This review is being written from a fighter who has fought him in the ring. David (Scorpion) Pekarek Speedy has represented United States on the National and International level, he has fought several tough opponents and has prevailed as a winner.
Marcus has been my trainer for almost 4 yrs. My initial goal with him was to learn kickboxing as a beginner. During this journey, Marcus has taken me beyond any goals or aspirations I had imagined. He has expanded my learning from just kickboxing techniques to cardio and strength training. I am not a fighter; I take kickboxing lessons to learn something new. Marcus challanges me both physically and mentally. It is not just a physical workout, he also teaches me to strive to accomplish things I never knew I could do. Marcus has both the education and experience to be a great trainer. He knows how to customize learning techniques to each individuals needs. You will not just get a great workout, but you will achieve a sense of accomplishment.

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!
I really enjoyed kickboxing with Andrew. It was tough but I lost so much weight and toned every muscle. It was great.
Bobby is great if you're looking to shake up your routine. I go to him whenever I need to get my butt kicked and need help starting a workout regimen again. He lets me complain but by the end of our sessions I'm sweaty, sore and grateful I came. Wait, did I just make a dirty joke? Damnit Bobby. But really, Bobby does not make me feel uncomfortable or objectified and the workouts are always fun. They range from circuits to weights to kickboxing. I really hate to run so he knows to provide some variety in the hour-long session.
When you hire a trainer, you're motivated to lose weight for the first time, put on muscle, or rise from the ashes and return to your former glory. I personally was the later and would not been able to hit my goal without the help of Matt. He was able to help me get results, keep me motivated, hold me accountable, and completely shift my perspective on health and wellness. With his extensive strength program, kickboxing classes, and varying cardio regiment, I was able to go from 250lbs to 179lbs. His wealth of exercise knowledge was only supplemented by his warm and understanding personality. Ever since he has moved away from NYC, he has been very difficult to replace. Without any hesitation, I highly recommend Matt to help you reach any of your fitness goals.
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.
Lalee is great! He pushes you to your limit but not beyond. You will hurt the next day but it's a good hurt. He is on time and very professional. Gives encouragement the entire session and is always positive. He checked on me a few days later to make sure I was ok. I loved how good I felt even days later. Best decision I have made for myself in a long time. Highly recommended.
The empitome of a great instructor
i am a 62 year old CEO. I am also in awesome physical condition, look 20 years younger than my age, and am confident in all areas of my life. I believe the training I had with Tim made a huge difference in all of these areas. I started training with Tim as a brown belt. Four years later I earned my black belt with Tim. The truth was the brown belt I had was worthless. I could not fight. Tim trained me to fight, to get in shape, and to be able to defend myself. Tim moved away from Houston (where I trained with him) to LA about 6 or 7 years ago. However, the training was so well done, I still continue my practice and am in great shape. I have integrated what Tim gave me with other martial arts and I LOVE my sport. Tim is also a rare breed.....a profoundly decent and honorable man. Mark Kamin (www.mka-world.com)
