I recently moved to West Chester, PA from California and wanted to find a reputable place to learn tai chi and wing chun. I gave Sigung Smith's school a try and was instantly hooked. I drive 30 minutes each way to attend his classes and it's well worth it. He is welcoming and meets all students at their personal skill level. He takes great care to work with each student individually to help them develop their skills at their own pace. He is a true master of the arts and always willing to answer any questions. He fosters a supportive environment which makes learning not only easier, but a ton of fun! The lessons are not simply going over the movements, but also the history, the application, the benefits, and the original language. Sigung Smith truly loves what he does and always goes above and beyond what one would expect. He is not only an amazing practitioner of martial arts, but a fantastic teacher as well. There are a lot of great practitioners of martial arts in this world, but if you have the opportunity to learn from Sigung Smith, don't hesitate.
Miss Judy was a karate instructor for myself and my two children. I admire that she was able to teach any age level from the youngest karate students to the adult classes. She is extremely knowledgeable about karate, exercising and nutrition. She always encouraged us to do our best. She was always willing to stay late if we needed extra help. I have always admired Miss Judy for her dedication and knowledge and have great respect for her for the way she treats others. I have always known Miss Judy to go above and beyond her responsibilities and I would highly recommend her to others.
Andrew Otter is a truly excellent trainer. He is the perfect combination of tough and motivating… And just as important he makes working out fun. Whether you’re getting back into exercise, tired of the same old routine, or looking to take your fitness to the next level, Andrew has a program for you. I have personally benefited from kickboxing lessons that not only improved my core strength, balance, and hand eye coordination, but have also given me a new hobby that I will enjoy for years to come. Thanks Andrew!
Amerikick Andorra is a great community resource and a wonderful karate school. Our girls who attend the school, enjoy it so much. Their physical and mental confidence has clearly grown in the time they have been there. The staff, including Al and all of the Senseis, are great with the kids from karate instruction to the world beyond the studio. This place is a gem! We highly recommend it.
Bryan started teaching my daughter Martial Arts when she was 6. I entered her into the MA because she was so painfully shy. I needed to do something to help bring out her confidence. Bryan did this. He worked with her and built her confidence one lesson at a time. By the age of 10, she earned her first Black Belt and was assisting teaching classes. At the age of 13, she earned her Second Black Belt and was teaching the smaller belt classes along side Bryan. My other three children also took classes with him and thrived. He is wonderful with children by being very PATIENT with them. I can't recommend him highly enough.
I have been attending James' Charm City Karate School (Adult classes) for over two years. James is very warm and welcoming, and made me feel comfortable and confident with learning something new and challenging. James is a skilled instructor, gives one-on-one time, is prepared for and enthusiastic for every class and belt test, and offers multiple methods of learning, including written instruction and terrific and very helpful YouTube videos of every technique for every belt level.
Sifu Dale runs a top-notch school; I say this from 32 years of experience in karate, kung fu, aikido, MMA, and sword. If all you want is cardio and one-steps, look elsewhere; if you want serious training for serious results, leaern from the guy who has taught empty-hand to FBI agents and Navy SEALS.
I've been training with Julien about two years now. It began as an at home training experience, and sometimes we would meet at the gym and do some weight training. Many times we worked out at a local park. I've enjoyed working out with Julien because of the sometimes unorthodox exercises that he would do. I lost a lot of weight working with him, and increased my 5k race pace. I enjoy that he draws inspiration from many disciplines such as yoga, meditation, martial arts, weight training, parkour, etc. I think if he had his own gym in a centrally located place it would be awesome. In his gym, he could have jungle-gym inspired equipment in addition to weight training equipment, so we could have a gym (indoors) that would support his style of training. As he grows, perhaps this is what will happen one day :)
Sifu Grant has the background,knowledge, and real world experience to impart practical self defense strategies and techniques to you and your family. My entire family attends Grant's Kung Fu Academy since June 2011. My six year old attends the kids class, my 12 year old attends the Juniors class, and my wife and I attend the adult class. Sifu has the patience and temperament to teach children appropriate martial arts techniques while instilling discipline and respect for parents, classmates and peers. In the adult class he focuses more on practical real world self defense techniques along with fitness and conditioning. This is NOT just some belt factory. His school has a friendly open atmosphere and he is very personable and open. We attended other martial arts schools in the area before and have found that Grant's is by far the best fit for us. I highly recommend the school and Sifu Grant personally.
Hi I'm Sensei Hetrick and I am one of the younger instructors at the school. I have known Sensei Heine and Sensei Marmon for several years. You will not find a more dedicated group of instructors at any school. We are all personally invested in the progression of our students and teach Karate in a practical sense to be used as a way of life, whether that means improving physical and mental health or for self defense. I have trained at other schools that charge hundreds of dollars a month and yet the quality of instruction does not measure up to PSKC in Philadelphia. Hope to see you in class soon!
My son started training with Sensei Elliott in the club's previous location at the West Chester Y in April, 2009. After a few months, at Sensei Elliott's suggestion, I joined my son for a 3 month trial - even though I'd had no previous experience with martial arts. My son and I have both enjoyed training enough that we are still training almost 4 years later. Sensei Elliott has more than 30 years of karate experience and is very patient with the students - especially the kids. The assistant instructors are also very skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced. We don't focus much on competition, but the level of skill that can be attained here is demonstrated by the fact that several students were national champions and highly ranked competitors in last year's ISKF national tournament (and previous years, too!). In addition to karate excellence, Sensei Elliott's focus on family is also a big attraction. He trains with his own family and also encourages other parents, children, and siblings to train together. The kids also enjoy other occasional non-karate activities such as "fun days", holiday parties, and movie nights. Finally, the six day per week class schedule is tremendously convenient for people with a busy schedule. We can train as many or as few days as we like and it's easy to fit a few workouts in, even with my busy work schedule and my son's other activities. Short of hiring a personal instructor, I seriously doubt if you can find this degree of scheduling flexibility anywhere else in the area.
They are so Professional and Well rounded. The price is amazing for the service provided.I referred two of my friends that became clients as well. Definitely A+
Have been training at Krav Maga Pitman for 8 months. I really enjoy the classes and have gained a tremendous amount of confidence in my ability to defend myself. Another benifit is that I have also dropped a few pounds. I would highly recommend KMP to anyone looking for quality instruction.
Magnus Karate is an excellent place to learn martial arts. I have known Master Pannulla, Mike, for many years and he is a man of great character and ethics. This is his passion, and he is wonderful as an instructor with children and adults of all ages. Teaching not only the martial art of Tang Soo Do, students come away with so much more. Confidence, discipline, and a determination to work hard not just in karate but school/work and other activities. Mike strives to make sure his students understand karate is to be used for the right reason - self defense only. In my mind there is no downside to martial arts practice. Students become stronger mentally and physically, becoming healthier individuals. As a result, students are prepared to meet the challenges of today's world head on, more so than if they weren't studying at Magnus. I'm honored not just to be a friend of Mike's and to write this review, but honored to be a student of his myself. I am just as passionate about training under Master Pannulla as he is instructing me and his other students. I highly recommend coming in and seeing what Magnus Karate is all about; it'll change your life in a most positive way. Best wishes, Jason M. Devon, PA
