Christine taught me so much. She always made me feel comfortable but also helped me increase my strength and feel way more confident in my abilities
I have been a student of the martial arts for 15 years, primarily in Kempo and Aikido, though I've dabbled in other styles. Dr. Pearlman has researched and studied classical styles to teach modern self defense. His classes have opened my eyes and my mind to a deeper understanding of the martial arts. Besides learning new techniques and applications, my performance in the other styles I practice have also improved. Dr. Pearlman's style is holistic, in the sense that it covers a wide range while keeping everything integrated. Strikes, kicks, locks, trapping and ground techniques are all covered. The focus is on self-defense, not fighting. Classes are relaxed but intense, great for beginners and experienced practitioners. I cannot recommend Praxis Martial Arts enough. Come down and see it for yourself.
To Whom It May Concern, I am writing this testimonial to inform you of the talent and passion of my good friend, and teacher, Eric Stowe. While I met Eric while in high school, I did not get to know him until we met again after college. It is important to note, that up to age 19, I was overweight, and unfit physically. I was awkward, and when I walk, I tended, as my mother would say, to lumber. While in college, I lost a good bit of weight, and for a couple semesters, studied Shotokan Karate. Shotokan is a hard style karate, and practices included 45 minutes of strenuous exercise, followed by 15 to 30 minutes of technique or form. While my physical health improved some, I learned very little that would benefit me. After graduating, I met Eric when a mutual friend brought me to a class he was teaching. While we did warm up with some exercises, Eric quickly moved into techniques, so when we left the class, we had a feeling of accomplishment, that we had actually learned something that we could use. I immediately signed up to study under Eric, and continued to study with him for over 15 years. Within a year, my mother commented that while she wasnt sure how she felt about me studying the martial arts, she loved the changes she had seen in me. I stood more erect, I no longer lumbered when I walked, I was more graceful on my feet and more confident in life in general. I have seen Eric work with both men and women, both younger and older. From a middle school aged boy who studied for several years, to a retired woman who joined the class for about one year. Eric is a gifted teacher whose flexibility ensures that everyone in the class, from the most inexperienced, to the seasoned veteran, benefit from the time spent with him. I would recommend anyone looking to improve their health, balance, or peace of mind in a violent world, to spend time studying with him.

Kempo-Jitsu is not a sport. It is a pre 1900 martial art. It is a lot like the new MMA fighting seen on pay per view except that we are careful not to injure each other. Students have to get up and go to work in the morning and so care is taken to keep injuries from happening. I don't teach competition, I teach people to have fun learning how to protect themselves. Your only competition is with yourself yesterday. Flowing from one type of fighting to another is taught. Stand up to ground, or speed striking to a throw or stand up grappling to a throw etc. Most schools teach a traditional sport (competition art).
