Sensei Walker truly provides quality and engaging training for his students. I especially appreciate the fact that he gives the students real scenarios and situations where they can apply the techniques he teaches to help in self defense. Great instructor!!

I took my 14 yr old daughter to her very first self-defense class and in a word "Outstanding!" The instruction she received was practical, effective and repeatable, which is exactly what you need. I would highly recommend this to any female 12+. You will come away knowing what you need to know to fend off any intruder who may be bigger and stronger. Be safe!!

We teach people how to protect themselves in real-life situations. Everything has been tested to work in real situations. Everything is easy to learn and effective. We adapt our program to you rather than you adapting to it. Our class sizes are very small, to allow hands-on with an instructor. We adapt our program to work for you rather than have you adapt to our program. We offer small group classes, private classes, seminars, and intensive personal training programs (IPTPs). You can come to us, or for certain programs, we will come to you. Seminars can be done nationally. I am the self-protection instructor for Rahab's Rope, which is a non-profit organization that sends teams (usually consisting entirely of women) to India to fight against human trafficking. A great example of what we do is the Bourne Triology. What Jason Bourne did in those movies is Kali, and that is one of the major arts that we draw from. Hunted with Tommy Lee Jones is also a good example.

I started working with Master Steve 18 months ago, as an alternative to weightlifting--which I had done for years and wanted something new. I knew I would get in shape, but I was shocked by the dramatic changes in my body, especially in terms of muscle tone, loss of body fat and overall endurance. As an instructor, Master Steve is incredibly patient, encouraging and clearly has the experience in teaching to help each student improve in their skills. Ever though I started out as an alternative to the gym, I've really developed a passion for MMA--a passion clearly shared by Master Steve and I am actively working towards a black belt. What impresses me the most about TrasforMMAtion's program is that time is not wasted. Other martial arts schools I've looked at spend an inordinate amount of time on "conditioning" and very little on actual instruction and practicing of MMA techniques. After warming up, almost all the time is spent with Master Steve on acquiring and improving techniques, without any wasted time. I would recommend TransforMMAtion and Master Steve to anyone who wants to get in shape, feel more confident in self defense situations, or who would like to go beyond the basics to mastering the discipline.
