Ryan is awesome! I'm so glad I started working with him. In just 3 sessions I've learned so much- he pushes me without over doing it. He is attentive, knowledgeable, and super approachable. His overall education, experience, and professional demeanor make him extremely well rounded as a fitness professional. His workouts are both challenging and fun. Hire this guy if you are ready to see life-changing results .
Training in Dr. Jaffri's class has been a life changing experience. I was taught the moves needed to get out of any situation. More importantly I was taught to think and react on my feet, I feel this is how he as a trainer takes his program deeper then others I've experienced. You never know what an attacker will do so he goes through every possible situation and instilled in you how to react. This is much more powerful then just teaching the "moves". As a rape and abuse survivor I finally have the confidence to walk the streeets without PTSD episodes. I highly recommend his self defense program.
Kevin was my daughter's self defense instructor for two separate sessions. The first session involved walking through Downtown Denver one evening in which Kevin explained many techniques and strategies of being alert and aware of your environment. We also had a very memorable moment in which Kevin took us through a dark alley way and, by chance, got to actually experience a taste of the dangerous situations that Kevin spoke to us about throughout the three hour session. The initial session was an incredibly eye-opening and valuable experience on its own, and Kevin's knowledge on self-defense techniques, tools, and other information was worth more than the price of the session. At first we thought the first session would be enough, but attending the second session, in the words of my daughter, was by-far one of the best decisions that she has made. Kevin spent over an hour instructing her on the physical portion of self defense, in which she got to practice strike moves on a dummy and sandbag, as well as many strike techniques to respond and escape from different types of attacks. Kevin also went further by giving advice on exercise techniques to improve body strength to correlate with the self defense moves that he taught. Overall, it was a very valuable experience that I would recommend to anyone who would like to learn self defense. My daughter would also highly recommend this for females. Kevin is a very professional, respectful, and experienced instructor who provides a lot of valuable knowledge that could potentially save your life.
Awesome place to train. Safe, clean, ego free. In 2 years at RMJJ, lost over 100 pounds and learned self defense. Jiu jitsu is the best decision I ever made.
Been training with Dave for about 3 years. Through that time I have had increase of confidence, more power with striking and kicking, and even more of a tactical mind when it comes to sparing. Dave treats and speaks to me as an adult, and always willing to help me improve in areas of weakness both felt and observed. Never is a lesson nor the time wasted.
Joe Cooper was my girls' karate instructor when they were younger. They both loved the class! Joe taught them respect, honor and self defense. I found they both really enjoyed the class though it was tough and challenging at times. Joe has a way with kids to get them to learn and have fun at the same time! I'd highly recommend him!!!
Cory is an outstanding instructor. His depth of knowledge about ninpo is matched only by his ability to teach effectively. This is a great place to learn self-defense.
As a trainer in the fitness industry I hold a high standard for any Fitness professional that I would hire personally. Brett Hart is an expert in his field and truly gives his all to his clientele. He knows how to vary the intensity to match the efforts of a first-timer or a seasoned athlete. He is personable, well-organized, flexible in his scheduling and inspirational in his approach. I would highly recommend Brett for one-on-one, small group or large group kickboxing conditioning, martial arts and self defense training.
Heather Mondee has more than met my expectations with regards to my son's training goals.I highly recommend Mondee to anyone who is interested in Martial Arts/self-defense.
Cks is an amazing school full of wonderful people. They teach very practical self-defense applications as well as intangibles such as meditation and work with students in groups and one on one. Any and all are welcome to join regardless of age, gender or disability. I have been going to Cks Movement Masters for over 2 years now and my younger sister has been going for about year. We are both very satisfied with our experience at Cks and would highly recommend them to everyone who is looking to better themselves and have a great time doing it.
Vanessa is an excellent self defense teacher. She is personable and most knowledgeable. We are most grateful for her training!
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.
Tony has done a great job instructing me in boxing. I had never boxed (even messing around) so Tony has a lot to teach me. I am enjoying the workouts and continue to improve.
Professional instruction in a fun environment. Respect for proper use of self-defense and for each other is always a top priority.
