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 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 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 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.

I have been working with Tony for about 3 weeks. He has demonstrated extensive knowledge of body physiology, enabling him to choose just the right exercises to build my upper body w/o hurting my lower back or sore shoulder. He is also a terrific motivator, pushing me to work harder on the weights, where I admit to being somewhat lazy compared to my effort in cardio (e.g., 2-3 hours of road biking with heart rate above 70% of max is my idea of a fun workout). Finally, he is a fun guy to talk with, making the hour in the gym enjoyable physically and mentally.
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!
Sensei Trimm is an outstanding teacher. I wanted to learn how to protect myself.

Sensei Trimm taught me self defense , how to help myself if ever I need it. I highly recommend him as a teacher for anyone wanting to learn self defense and martial arts.
