About this pro

How does your service stand out?

There is NO other facility in Connecticut that matches the breadth, depth, and effectiveness of our programs. Our instructors travel far and wide to train with the world's best -- or we bring those experts here to our clients! No matter what type of Martial Arts or Self-Defense training you're looking for, you've found elite instruction right here in Middletown, Connecticut!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

People come to us with expectations. Whether they want to lose weight & get in shape, or they want to learn practical, real-world self-defense skills, or they want to develop the mental focus & discipline to start something that they can develop for years, these needs are REAL and they need SOLUTIONS. I love that our students see measurable progress towards their goals, often as soon as a couple weeks into the program! I've had men AND women lose over 50lbs in our classes. I've had police, military, and health care workers report back that they protected themselves in real-world situations. And nothing could give me more satisfaction than knowing that we've made such a huge, positive difference in their lives.

What types of customers have you worked with?
MSDC offers three primary services: 1) Group classes. We presently offer group classes in Jeet Kune Do, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, Self-Defense, and Mixed Martial Arts. Our more experienced clients are also given the opportunity to train & compete in grappling, MMA, Boxe Francaise Savate, and Filipino Martial Arts. 2) Private lessons. Some clients have very specific needs (or schedules), and require 1-on-1 instruction. We're pleased to offer private instruction in any of the above areas, as well as a few others. Private clients can hand-pick what they'll work on, and how often (whether it's one-time-only or regularly). 3) Workshops & Other Events. MSDC's staff is often invited to teach seminars, workshops, and other events at schools, hospitals, colleges, workplaces, and other locations up and down the East Coast. Please contact us if you or your organization would like to have an instructor visit.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check out as many schools & instructors as possible. It's very important that you're comfortable with the way that things are run wherever you choose, so be absolutely sure that it's the one for you. Lots of schools will seem "pretty good", but is that really what you're settling for? Find the BEST fit -- after all, you might be spending a lot of time there, working towards your goals. So try out different options.
