My experience with Mustafa has been a life changing one. I met this man when I was 14 years old and knew from the moment I met him I had found my mentor. His approach to boxing is scientific compared to other coaches which is the reason he is so efficient. Combined with his teaching ability Mustafa can mold anyone into a great or at the very least a good fighter. He begins with your mind, giving you the mental tools for success and has a rigorous physical training routine. He also doesn't lie to anyone and always "calls it as it is." I have no doubt that with this man's help I can achieve greatness. I have nothing but respect and loyalty for Mustafa Marconi

I've known Ed Costigan for over 30 years in a few respects. First, as the most senior black belt instructor under Arthur Cohen he has always been there, not just for me but for Mr. Cohen and the entire organization and the law enforcement departments we've supported. Ed And I live in the same town and it's not hard to see that he's a well liked and respected member of the community. We don't talk much about his accomplishments as he keeps much private being a modest man but I can say he is a lifesaver not just as a lifeguard and a high profile security agent. More recently I have had the pleasure to train with Mr. Costigan in the Russian Martial Arts and can attest to his prowess. I would endorse and support Ed Costigan in any endeavor. Thank you Eddie!

I have known Mr Costigan both professionally and personally for over 30 years. I was Mr. Costigan's supervisor for the Jones Beach Lifeguard Corps, his work ethics has always been rated as superior alone with his knowledge and attitude towards the public. Mr. Costigan possesses outstanding commitment to public safety and public awareness through his skills as a martial artist and safety programs he has helped develop and implement. I feel Edmund Costigan would excel in most anything he attempted. I personally would recommend Mr. Costigan highly.

Tang Soo Do is a wonderful martial art that provides great discipline, self respect, flexibility and a great source of weight loss. The teachers at Valley Karate are fantastic and they provide a variety of different instructions in line work, terminology, forms, one-step self defense techniques and grabs. They make themselves available for any help or support that is needed by any student. Valley Karate provides a great family inclusion aspect with Parents Night, Buddy Week and Family day. They also hold kids tournaments that make each of them winners no matter what happens and will be holding their first school tournament next Saturday, March 26th. Master Bergers is a superb role model for all the kids and adults, as well as all the other Masters and Dans. Finally, the students all aspire for Black Belt excellence at whatever level they are. Valley Karate rocks!

Valley Karate is a great school for both Adults and Children. Its a family run school and it's very family friendly. Everyone is great. Master Bergers and his wife offer a lot to me and my family. The students always do well in competition, so they've got to be doing something right!

One of the best martial arts instructors I've encountered. He teaches based on the individual's needs rather than force a program regardless of your own ability or talents. Very knowledgeable and willing to dispense all the information you can handle.

Tom is very patient and consistent when it come to explaining specific moves, showing the advantages of why it's done one way and how to flows smoothly versus another way where you have to exude more energy. I love his style of teaching.

As my kids were entering their later years of grammar school and preparing to enter the middle grade system, I wanted to make sure they were mentally, emotionally and physically prepared for anything and everything that came their way. I wanted to keep them in shape, protect themselves, build confidence and increase their flexibility and so I found it right here in my home town, Sifu Ivan's Ultimate Martial Arts Acadamy. We have been training here for the past 6 months and this is as good as it gets when it comes to mixed martial arts. You will have an amazing time, meet new friends and find new levels of energy. After attending for several months now, I have noticed a huge positive improvement in the areas of confidence, focus, listening, strength, self esteem, endurance and grades. They are so eager to attend that we quickly went from once a week to twice a week. They look forward to learning new skills and mastering them in order to advance to the next level. The academy also reinforces the values of respect, friendship and family. It is an incredible environment to not only learn martial arts but to also have fun in the process. Sifu Ivan is an incredible instructor not only does he teach the skill, but relates it with life experiences and applies it with example. What a phenomenal experience filled with positive energy!

The first day I walked in to the gym I did not know what to expect. Honestly, after I took my first class I was instantly hooked! I'm in the best shape of my life and my confidence is through the roof! If you want to train in Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian jiu Jitsu you should definitely try out Jungle Gym Martial Arts in New Rochelle. I tried out other gyms before, but Jungle Gym was really family oriented and I knew i wanted to be apart of that family for a long time, so I joined. Why wait? Make it happen now! Take the first step like i did and achieve your goals!

Our School stands in front of other schools due to over 50 years of experience gathered from the Cheezic Tang Soo Do Federation. Our Curriculum is especially designed to fit the needs of each and every student that comes through our doors. We realize that different people and different age groups need different types of training. Our School motto is Always Give Back More Than You Receive.


Private, personal self-defense, and martial arts lessons with a sensei who has been teaching students self-defense for over 30 years. I have a black belt in four separate martial arts and styles. I am dedicated and committed to both the martial arts and the student's learning and self-confidence. The martial arts began centuries ago with the teacher and student trusting and learning together in a unique and private setting. The student was able to not only learn self-defense, confidence, and protection skills, but they were also able to learn and grow as an individual and as a person. The element of trust became easier for the student as they were able to confide and learn in this sacred and private setting. There are no other students to distract you from learning, no lines, no substitute teachers, no being stuck in the back of the class or the back of the room. All questions were asked and all questions were relevant. The student was always the priority and the focus of the class and session. Always more time for learning and confidence building. That's the tradition where I came from and what I believe in. No uniform is required, no long term contract, and no hidden fee. The only request from me, Sensei Dennis, is for serious students only who keep their word, who come to class on time, who are respectful to the martial arts and the sensei, and who are willing to trust and learn. Any student who is willing to learn comes into the room leaving their ego at the door. With that agreement in mind, then that's our contract. Private classes are 90 minutes long and can be requested for any day of the week at any time provided that the time is not already scheduled. Semi-private and small group classes can be requested and done upon request. Classes can be in the day, afternoon, evening or late hours. Classes are for men, women, children, and couples. No age is too old or too young. Everyone is welcomed. Remember that personal safety and protection skills never goes out of style. Wherever you live or wherever you move to, your protection skills and advantage goes with you. I hope to have the privilege of meeting and teaching you in the future. Thank you. ~ Sensei Dennis.


For me, I've been training for 24 years in Tiger Schulmann's. I continue my training three days a week each week to keep up with my certification. I have a curriculum that I teach each week to my students from Master Tiger Schulmann. The way I am with my students makes it feel like a family environment.. I give them everything of myself to better help them reach their goals. My school is a place where people feel safe and can always come to, no matter their day, good or bad.
