I was introduced to many techniques under Bruno. From kettle bell training, strength training, BJJ, and self defense. While in college, I learned under Bruno as his knowledge I could test alongside health performance. It was during this time I learned how to perfect my Olympic lift form, the deadlift. As a young woman not afraid of lifting weights, I worked hard. It was my time at the gym speaking with Bruno or working with him that I now can feel how I lift and if I am performing it right.

Finding and learning Wing Chun has transformed my life for the better. The community I've gain from the Wing Chun family has been there for me from as long as I've joined. Not to mention all that I've learned in self defense and self control. To me, Sifu Och Wing Chun is invaluable.
Joe is an outstanding trainer. Not only does he better his clients in areas of movement, performance, and nutrition, but is in constant pursuit of self-improvement. Joe is a great coach and an even better person! His enthusiasm and interpersonal skills are contagious and I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
I took the weekend self-defense course from Dan. This is a crazy old world, and as the song says: 'Beer is good, and people are crazy'. Most of us never even wrestle with a person for fun. We respect peoples' space. and if we are lucky, we will never be violently attacked. But, as a 105 pound woman, I know how fragile I am, no matter how much I work out. Dan's class took us from frozen in fear to self-defense actions that were visceral, instinctual, and sometimes thoughtful. He showed us that we have an arsenal for self-defense in our bodies, and how to utilize that arsenal. He taught how to be survivors, not victims. Thanks Dan!
I have been working with Kathy for about 5 months and it she has exceeded all my expectations. I was looking for a cardio workout I would enjoy; thus, stick with it. I find the treadmill boring. I prefer to work outside and we are able to do this with her training programs. Kathy's approach is very professional, positive, fun and most of all varied enough to provide just the right challenge physically and mentally. She ensures you keep the right form and focus, while building your confidence and abilities. I am not only getting an interesting cardio workout, but developing my core, agility and self defense. I have to add it is a most reasonably priced individual personal training session. I look forward to our weekly training sessions. I highly recommend Kathy.
Cobra really opened my eyes to the reality of what self defense is. All the drills prove how important practice, reflex, and awareness are what are necessary in life and death situations. Everyone should go through this at least once.
I have been a fan of martial arts since i was a wee lad. For my entire life i came to realize that most places you join are sink or swim. The instructor leaves you alone with barely any instruction and its up too you. Untill i found tampa bay wing chun. I met sihing garret and was greeted by everyone genuinely. The instructor takes the time to ensure your learning properly. Its a place i would call safe and fun. The atmosphere is one of a kind and the level of instruction is off the charts. If you want a kind, genuine and inviting studio. With an instructor who will teach you true self defense and go the extra mile then tampa bay wing chun is where you need to be.
I have learned a lot from the instructors of this school. I am noticing a lot of self improvements to myself after training here for a little while. I'm more flexible, I have more energy, and I just feel more physically fit. The classes are great and I really enjoy the atmosphere.
I have been taking self defense classes for 3 months. I learned a lot and feel confident to walk alone. I thought that its hard to learn but i realize its easy if you eager to learn.
One of the most outstanding instructors I've ever met very thorough with all situations and questions that may arise extremely patient and understandingto maximize on the class that she's is teacher whether it is adult or children
Lugo's is the best!! They really worked with my son when he needed it most. When other after school programs turned their backs on him because he had some behavior issues, Lugo's and the staff made us/him feel welcome and worked closely with my son to help him through a lot of his issues. Not only that but also made him feel important which helped his self esteem. They actually care about their students and we consider them part of our family. Words cannot express my gratitude to Lois and Laura for being there through such rough times. They truly are amazing people!
Aikido training is about challenging yourself, not the other. You will develop confidence by facing your fears, and negative fighting spirit will become creative fighting spirit. The stress and pressure of serious Aikido training brings this spirit to the surface, exposing it, so that it can be examined and refined in a controlled atmosphere of respect and mutual study. Discovering your physical limitations will cause you to reflect on the deepest meanings of harmony and conflict, and to strive for a level of consciousness above the selfish ego, closer to a universal consciousness. You will learn to defend yourself, and to protect yourself and others. You will begin to gain a deeper confidence and bring the mind, body and spirit into a greater balance. Aikido is ideal for someone who would like to learn to defend oneself without crippling his/her attacker. The essence of Aikido is spiritual, finding and creating harmony with oneself and others. You will be training in a traditional yet laid-back space, where everyone is respectful towards your well-being and skill level. The people you will train with are some the nicest, welcoming people you will ever meet. Enjoy your first class on the house! Come practice an art that is rooted in thousands of years of Japanese mastery.
