Showed me and a few girlfriends some great techniques for self defense! I definitely recommend.
I was looking for a trainer who could focus on my specific needs in achieving physical test standards. I immediately liked how Raz was able to adapt and work on a routine that was geared toward my goals. I have been training with him for a little over 2 months and after every workout I’m sore, which I don’t mind because he turns it up a notch every session so I can gradually meet my goal. However, I’d like to emphasize that although he motivates and encourages you to give it your all, he has much self awareness on how difficult or tiresome a routine may feel to a person who isn’t in shape as him. Therefore, he will not make you overdo it because he wants you to gradually make this your lifestyle instead of getting overwhelmed or so gassed out you quit working out. Raz is very punctual! He’s always 10 minutes earlier than scheduled ready to go. He’s also willing to meet with me at a local park on Saturday mornings (rain or shine). Another thing I really like about Raz is that unlike other trainers, he’s never looking at his watch. I don’t feel like he’s trying to rush out of my session to go running to meet another client, which demonstrates me he has good time management skills and does not overbook. Also, besides the quick warm up and cool down, he’s not one of those trainers that wastes almost the entire session by telling you just to do cardio or use the gym machines. His workout are diverse and he will bring a lot of his own training gear if you’re gym isn’t fully equipped. In 2 months I’ve gone from not being able to run one lap to running almost 2 miles non-stop. I continue to improve in my other PT goals and once Raz saw I was good on one thing, he decided to dedicated my sessions to my weaker areas. Lastly, due to a possible relocation for work, Raz has been flexible with my payment options and even offered to reimburse payments for any session that has to be cancelled if I move. I would recommend Raz to anyone looking for a professional, punctual, friendly, and knowleadge trainer.
This is hands down one of the best classes out there! Not only is the instructor very patient and enthusiastic about teaching new students the fundamentals and experienced students additional training but the class itself is a fun way to learn self-defense. There's always positive feed back and personalized attention to correct improper techniques. So far it has taught me discipline and has boosted my overall confidence. It's a great workout too! Simple movements make it easier to pick up. Highly recommended for all levels and useful to anybody out there.
I've trained with Moore Sensei for 3 months now. He's very knowledgable and he keeps classes fun. It's a nice mix. If you're interested in a traditional dojo that teaches more than just self defense I would highly recommend it.
Unfortunately, through personal experience, I had to protect myself during a vehicle break-in in Miami, Florida. Sensei Tim's instructions allowed me to not only defend myself, but to detain the suspect until the authorities arrived. Consequently, the suspect was tried and convicted for his misdeeds. He was a repeat offender. Self defense and mechanisms devised for personal protection are needed to improve safety for self, family, and friends.

Master Ronny helped me train MMA like a real fighter. I lost about 15 pounds in 5 weeks following his routine. I would definitely recommend him to someone who wants to have fun, learn self defense, and improve their physical fitness. Master Ronny is everything you need to get healthy! My only tip is don't give up and push yourself harder to get the result you need.
OUTSTANDING training!!! My wife and I initially took concealed weapons permit & basic firearms training with Toby. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and drastically improved our firearms proficiency. I recently started taking personal & home defense training with Toby, which has been a life altering decision so far as my confidence level has tremendously increased. As a successful businessman and father of 4 this was very important for me.
