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.

I have been trained by Alex in both defensive tactics and field patrol duties. I have both seen, and used the tactics he teaches. I can honestly say the tactics Alex teaches, he also uses himself. He is patient, knowledgeable, and has a passion for defensive tactics. Alex is not a book learned teacher as he uses and reforms his tactics based on personal experience. Alex is the kind of teacher who will stay with you until you have perfected the lesson.

This place was very welcoming from the start and everyone was eager to help me progress. Fred introduced me to my current Wing Chun Instructor, Sifu Louis Oscar, and I must say that Wing Chun is way more than just an art of self defense. Sifu Louis Oscar has taught me skills that will stay with me for the rest of my life, and he is an awesome Wing Chun teacher. I highly recommend trying out USD & MMA fitness- as well as Louis Oscar Wing Chun kung fu- for yourself.

Been coming for nearly 2 years with my Wife to this tradition style Japanese DZR Jujitsu, which was the first Jujitsu taught to Americans in America, regardless of gender or nationality and started originally in Hawaii in the 40s. This is an adult class held every Monday from 7:30 to 9:30pm. Exercise intensity is light to medium. Everyone is very nice, kind and cautious. This is not geared for sport competition. It is designed heavily for a smaller our weaker person to use against a bigger or stronger attacker. We train in many self defense techniques involving standing, kneeling and grappling, although we try to avoid heavy grappling because in real life bad guys or bullies often have other bad friends (and weapons) and by remaining on our feet or knees, we can transition to the next assailant with more options, escape all together or restrain until the threat is removed or authorities arrive. We're not trying to score points, we're trying to diffuse and protect... disable and disarm if at all possible... go home alive as safely as possible. As such, training ultimately entails not only stopping an aggressor with appropriate measures, it also eventually includes incapacitating, disabling and disarming attackers using moves that are illegal in sports due to high risk of injury. Those are our choice to use to protect ourselves if the threat warrants it. We're also taught how to communicate with authorities from a safe distance away from the threat, after the fact.

I'm so glad I decided to take this class. I only was interested in a few self defense classes. Then I started to see the weight dropping I loved it. I love because they keep me focused. The trainer's are very knowledgeable.

My knowledge, my teachers, my training, and my teaching experience; and that I teach easy to learn practical self defense for both single and multiple attackers along with defense against some weapons such as knives and sticks. Theses defense techniques have been proven effective to work in neutralizing any kind of threat. I also offer tough conditioning for those who want the entire package.

We are so happy to have found Mr. Wendell Diamai. We were looking for a self-defense instructor for our daughter. She wasn’t interested in having to wear uniforms or having to compete. After our first meeting with Mr. Diamai she was hooked. He is focused on training and teaching. He is very patient and articulate and flexible with our schedule. We have high regards and we respect his teaching abilities. His students are very diverse and in different age brackets. He has students that have been with him for years. That alone tells you something. We plan on having him as her instructor for a very long time.

About

I have more than 40 years of experience in martial arts and self-defense. I have taught self-defense privately and at the college/university level. My specialty is teaching people with no experience. My training objectives are as follows: 1) introduce the fundamentals of self-defense without weapons 2) teach a series of martial arts techniques that can be used for self-defense 3) demonstrate and teach methods of integrating self-defense techniques that minimize the risk to the defender 4) introduce self-defense based strategy for executing self-defense techniques that will give the defender the best chance of overpowering and/or escaping an attacker After my training, the students: (1) have a repertoire of self-defense techniques that they can execute effectively, (2) have an increased level of confidence regarding self-defense, and (3) realize that they have the option of confronting and defending against an attack instead of complying with an attacker.
