    This review is coming from someone with previous martial arts experience. Coming from a an experience of family MMA style dojo, Coryson's Dojo was a breath of fresh air. At Coryson's you get a more personal training with small classes so there is opportunity to learn the things you are interested in. There are many different paths of Ninpo and Corysan has the knowledge and skill to teach you the traditional way and let you work on your own strengths. He also has a flexible schefule and is almost always ready to train. The dojo has a variety of ninja tools and weapons and he is always adding new things. The best part about Coryson's Dojo is the knowledge you take away from it. There are very few places in the US where ypu can learn real Ninpo and this is one of them. I can personally say that learning and practicing ninpo has improved my life in all assets.

    Dave is a great instructor. I have learned tons from him. He is able to teach all levels of martial arts. I have had instruction form all over this great country and he is one of the best. He breaks every move down nice and slow to make sure no student gets hurt and so they understand the moves. Under his instruction I have never seen the gladiator style that I have seen in many other gyms. Again he makes sure his students learn in a safe friendly environment.

    I could not recommend anyone more highly as a martial arts instructor. Sensei Legato is a highly experienced, dedicated teacher who has trained with a variety of grandmasters and high ranking students both in the United States and Japan. When I was working towards my black belt, he arranged weekend sessions on his free time to train myself and others. He is a teacher who will teach you not only to defend yourself and others, but to assimilate the philosophical teachings of martial arts into your lifestyle. His dedication to your growth will not end when you leave the mat, and as such I consider him a lifelong teacher and role model.

    Sorry that this is a little long... I have been at FusBoxe for almost three years. There is no other gym that offers what Sully offers. I am not saying that other gyms are inferior, only that FusBoxe is truly unique. Many gyms focus on one or two martial arts to the exclusion of others. That is not the case here. I can't imagine many other places where after an hour of combat sambo striking and an hour of Brazilian jiu-jitsu drilling, you can stick around and practice your swordplay with replica long swords (coated in protective rubber, of course). Or after an olympic lifting workout, transition into an mma fight camp. More than a gym, FusBoxe should truly be considered a learning facility. There is a staggering amount of martial arts knowledge contained within these walls. If you come in with an open mind, you can really learn a great deal very quickly. Because we are not limited in our exposure to different martial arts, each person really develops their own unique style. Everybody's style incorporates the techniques and ideas best suited for themselves from an extensive and diverse martial arts conceptual library at FusBoxe. The fighting philosophy you will learn at FusBoxe is second to none. This is not a place where you will be made to employ certain techniques if you do not find them personally useful. If you don't like Muay Thai kicks and instead want to use TaeKwonDo kicks... Go ahead, but you will most certainly understand Muay Thai before all is said and done. This really gets to the core of the fighting philosophy at FusBoxe (at least as far as I understand it). To paraphrase: - Do what is most comfortable, most efficient and most natural for your mind and your body, but understand as much of everything else as you possibly can. If you come in with an excellent wrestling background, Sully will not restrict you to only BJJ because that's the "best" grappling technique. He will incorporate your wrestling strengths into an overall grappling framework where wrestling is the primary tool you will use. That way, if you run into a high level pure grappler (be they judo, jiu-jitsu, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, or sambo players) you will understand their art enough to grapple on your terms rather than blindly rush into something you do not understand. The same thing could be said about somebody who comes in with an excellent boxing background, or an excellent judo background. Those are the foundations upon which you build your own style. I have heard people say, "Well my boxing is good, so I just want to learn bjj here." That kind of style compartmentalization has always struck me as seriously lacking any kind of thoughtful analysis. If I've learned anything, it's that the martial arts are a nearly infinite continuum where everything relates back to everything, rather than a checklist of styles. If you ever think you've reached the end of martial arts, well, you're simply a fool. What is so liberating about this approach is that while you have excellent guidance from a great coach, you are free to develop your own style within the martial arts continuum. This is not to say that somebody in their first week of training is competent enough to start developing their style. But over time and through experience (often trial and error), we are each able to make thoughtful and informed decisions regarding our style. How do we accent our inherent strengths and how do we mask our weaknesses as strength? Sully will never tell you that you can't use a particular technique, he will only ask some variation of the following question: "Will it work for you?" If the answer to that question is yes, use it. If the answer is no, discard it or work on it until you can answer yes. Something you will rarely see here is the fight team practicing separately from beginner and intermediate students. In fact, they do quite the opposite during scheduled classes. Fight team members often take on leadership roles during class to ensure that newer martial artists' understand the techniques and concepts being taught. You can literally see the organic information transfer from advanced to beginning students in almost every class. We think of the gym as our second family. As such, you will make great new friends. Everybody is approachable and certainly willing to talk about whatever is on your mind, be it related to martial arts or otherwise. Personally, I made friends at FusBoxe who have become an essential part of my life. I am excited to see everybody at the gym every time I go to class. It is an awesome feeling. The only thing I will caution prospective students about is to not come to FusBoxe with a narrow focus. This is not the place nor the coach that will put you in the cage immediately, even if you have prior experience (maybe you've even had a few amateur fights). Sully puts people in the ring who are both physically and mentally ready by his standards. Likewise, you will not receive your belt promotions on a schedule. My first belt promotion came more than two years after I started. But, I love that belt. Every time I put it on I am filled with the pride of accomplishment and pure joy. That belt represents blood, sweat and swollen lips. Black eyes and habitually battered thighs. It represents countless failures and, by comparison, few successes. It reminds me that on my first day, I sparred with a 93 pound girl who made me look like a drunk walking through a spider web (I am a 190 pound man). It is a constant reminder that no matter how good I get, no matter how high I may climb or how far I've come, there will always be a new mountain in front of me. At the end of the day, anybody can buy a black belt. The belt itself is meaningless; just a thin, long, colored piece of cloth. What truly matters, what truly defines the belt, is the journey taken to achieve it. Sully takes pride in our FusBoxe lineage. I know that he is personally invested in every on of his students. He feels the pain of our failures and rejoices with us in our successes. While I know on an intellectual level that FusBoxe is a business, I have never felt like a number or just another membership fee. If you show loyalty and a willingness to learn no matter what level you are, your loyalty will be repaid in full. The journey won't be easy and it won't happen by a date on your calendar, but it will absolutely be worth it. FusBoxe will change your life if you let it. I love this gym, Chris F.

    I have been going to Rocky Mountain Self Defense and Fitness since 2009. John is an excellent teacher. He always makes class fun and challenging at the same time. His knowledge of Krav Maga is very extensive. Its very difficult to find a Krav Maga instructor who is a 2nd Degree black belt. I have studied several methods of Martial Arts and even have a black belt in one of them but have not felt confident about defending myself until I joined Rocky Mountain Self Defense and Fitness and learned Krav Maga. I highly recommend it especially for women.

    I've trained at Competitive Edge for over eight years. Scott's strengths are motivation and teaching. Classes are well thought out and if the students put in the effort they see measurable results. Scott has the unique ability to make the training relevant to other parts of life in general and gives students confidence that goes beyond the physical training.

      About

      General Martial Arts Classes: We offer a wide variety of Taekwondo classes for children, families, and adults, depending on age, skill, and desires. We start with our Little Tigers Class, a special class for preschoolers that teaches balance, coordination, safety, and many other skills through basic martial arts movements. Most students will enter our beginner's classes, where they will learn martial arts basics and gain the fundamental skills and conditioning needed to be successful in our other classes. We also have a special Lady Tigers program for moms and women who can train while their children play together. Our adult or family classes offer many different students the opportunity to practice together at the same time. Specialized Martial Arts Classes: Our specialized classes include the Competition Team, where students prepare themselves for all levels of Olympic-style sparring competition. They may also choose to join the Demonstration Team, where they will learn high-flying extreme martial arts techniques (i.e. XMA) and perform at venues such as the Pepsi Center, Invesco Field, the Aurora Mall, Starbucks, and more. We also teach a weapons class where students can learn the basics of martial arts weapons. We also offer a street defense class, giving students the opportunity to be prepared to stay safe in all situations. Advanced students can also take instructor training classes to take their knowledge of martial arts to the next level. Three Components of Practice: At our main headquarters for the Korean Academy of Taekwondo (KAT) in Aurora, Colorado, we focus on three main areas of martial arts - traditional Taekwondo, sport Taekwondo, and practical self-defense. The most traditional aspects of Taekwondo are taught throughout our curriculum where students learn discipline, self-control and self-confidence while training hard and working their way up through the belt ranks, by learning World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) forms (poomses), kicks, hand techniques, defensive step sparring, and ground defense grappling. KAT is proud to teach the WTF Olympic-style sparring, where two players, one red, one blue, put on full protective pads and spar against each other to gain points by kicking or punching the other player's chest protector (Hogu) and in adult divisions by kicking to the protected head. The match is continuous (not stopped by scoring a point), which teaches players important counter attack strategies and promotes match flow. Practical self-defense is an important aspect to our training at KAT. Standing defense is made up of basic kicks, hand techniques and Hapkido joint manipulations. Sprawling, control, clinching, and falling techniques are taught as the transitional techniques between standing defense and ground defense. Ground defense is especially important because many fights can go to the ground. To train for this, KAT offers a comprehensive grappling curriculum, which begins with how to fall and roll safely and works through dominant positioning and submission techniques. Pre-mixed martial arts (MMA) mixed sparring/grappling is offered but not required for belt advancement.

      Aikido of Denver "Doushin Juku" is a martial arts training center located in Denver. Our dojo's base philosophy is rooted in the traditional principles of Japanese martial arts “budo”, a way of achieving self-improvement through sincere martial arts practice. Our school's name, “Doushin Juku”, means the school of path to the heart. The name “Doushin” was given to our chief instructor Albright Sensei by Masando Sasaki Sensei (1929-2013), one of the direct disciples of the founder of aikido Morihei Ueshiba.

      I teach a well-rounded Shaolin Kung Fu system of 5 animals (tiger, leopard, snake, crane and dragon), praying mantis and 4th century emperor's long fist. Kung Fu is the mother of all Asian martial arts, effective empty-handed self defense as well as classical weapons training. We also put a large emphasis on health and longevity. With 36 years of following my passion, I know that self perfection blended with self-preservation tactics makes a beautiful art that really works. Several classes are offered a week as well as private instruction.
