I was looking for self defense training in order to learn how to protect myself. I found Onyx Fitness Training and it was one of the best decisions that I have made! They went over basic jiu jitsu and striking style techniques and I noticed that my core is a lot stronger! They were very nice and welcoming. I really enjoy training here! They also have a full gym for weight training as well! I am more excited than ever because not only am I learning self defense, but I am seeing drastic changes towards my body as well! Visit their website at www.onyx-fitness.com. Amazing training!!!
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.
Having a blast learning potent, real-world self defense. It doesn't get any more awesome than this. You get to practice on real people while still keeping safety at a high level. This is not like other self defense classes where it is all theory - this stuff really works, and it works really well :) The other people in the classes are great, they make newbies feel very comfortable and help out as much as possible. We do a variety of things each class and it never gets boring, in fact it feels like it keeps getting more and more fun each week. The instructor is a young, talented guy who has is a natural teacher. The class schedule is the best - it's offered at times and days that would fit virtually any schedule. It's a great environment to learn a super-effective and super-fun system of self defense. I'm really glad I took the first step and signed up for the free class.
My son started taking karate through a local high school. He was having a little bit of trouble in school when he stared. He has since brought his grades up, started reading more and been more helpful at home. I contribute this to the skills he has learned from Sensi Keith Moore. Keith, Karin and Maritza are like family. My husband and myself are currently taking a self defense class. I love it and would recommend everyone take it. My husband liked it so much he started taking regular classes with my son. This has brought them closer.
I can't say enough positive things about Tim. If you are looking to get in the best shape of your life and are like me and tired of the same old gym routine then you need to sign up for his class. I have been lifting weights at gym's for the majority of my adult life and thought I was in good shape. I was bored with the same old routine and decided I needed a change and that's when a friend told me about Tim and his self-defense classes. I went with my friend to a class and I was hooked. Tim is a master at his craft and is the guy to see if you want to get in the best shape of your life and at the same time learn the proper way to defend yourself or your loved ones if a situation should occur. Please give him a call!!!!!
Private Self Defense classes for kids
Outstanding experienced professional. Of all the professors of self defense I have learned from, he is the best except for the legendary Alex Gong
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.
