He can be very personal. He seems to remember every child's name and is concerned with their well-being and self-esteem. He promotes the school and programs with care and doesn't try to over sell you.

Mr. Monteiro is a courteous professional, but genuinely cares for the well-being of his clients. It shows that he works his hardest to provide the best service for the best value, and my results in fitness and self-defense are markedly improved.

Red Eagle Combat Hapkido was a great place to learn self defense techniques I can carry with me and I move to an urban setting. It increased my confidence and allowed me to learn and do things I didn't see myself doing before. Classes were fun and made you think about real life scenarios. I would definitely love to take more classes as time allows me to.

I enjoy excellent self defense/ martial arts training which helps me be prepared for the unexpected. Jujitsu is one of the arts taught by a very experienced team of martial artists. All age, ability, and skill levels are encouraged to join !

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!

Miss Judy is just wonderful to work with. She worked with my after school program and summer camps and related well to the children. She had everything prepared to go. She typed a memo about her self and had a lesion plan ready that the children would enjoy. Al this time was volunteer. The children and parents really enjoyed her very much! I was so impressed that she seem to enjoy what she was doing and made the children ALL feel special

As a women, I highly recommend Jared to teach you real world, practical self-defense.Jared has trained in multiple martial arts,and is experienced,respectful, and knows from his many years of training how to teach you to defend yourself.When teaching self-defense,one must be able to adapt and teach to that person's ability. Jared has that unique ability, where he can quickly adapt and focus on the student's strength's. This is extremely important, when working with women, and girls.Having trained with Jared, he knows many techniques that work. Jane McKenna Owner Trainingwithjane.com

Sharon's F.L.A.G. seminar has impacted my life dramatically. I never thought anything dangerous could happen to me, but when put in the situation I had come to realize I wouldn't know what to do. With this program, I have learned some basic self defense that could save my life that I will not soon forget!

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
