I can't say enough about the great session we had with Troy. He came to our home for a session with my wife, three daughters (18-21) and me. Finding a time to do this was easy, he was flexible, he reminded me the day of the session, arrived punctually and we got started. In addition to learning some great self-defense techniques, we had a BLAST! After one session I feel more confident about defending myself and I know the ladies in my life do as well. I can't recommend him more highly.
I am so grateful to have found David. He helped me learn so much about how to keep myself safe with self defense. I have a new motivation for being healthy and fit. He was always kind and professional. I wish I wasn't moving so I could continue my lessons with him.
I've been training with Jay MasterFitness Gee for 3 years. He's helped me go from weak to STRONG without stepping into a gym. He uses a myriad of techniques that have kept my body guess and changing: body weight exercises, pilates, kettlebells, stretching, swimming, boxing ... the list goes on and on. I'm amazed at the things I can do now. We even did several months working on self defense moves, and I've never been more confident in my ability to protect myself. He's encouraging w/o being annoying and filled with knowledge and expertise. He's an easy recommendation ... Let him show you how to OUTDO YOURSELF!
David is teaching my kids Krav Maga and they love it. I feel more comfortable with my kids learning from him to defend them self if need be, and I loved their confidence even after their first class. David is wonderful with children and feel blessed to of found him. Thank you David.
I had the privilege of working with Practical Combat Applications for a number of years, as a PR and Communications consultant for the organization. PCA is composed of many Martial Arts instructors, with unique individualized skillsets. All of the instructors and Senseis are very competent and versed in various techniques and formats. PCA aggressively prepares a range of clients from corporate members and Law enforcement officers, to students and women who are interested in learning martial arts for survival. Instructor Hameed is very personable. I strongly recommend PCA for anyone seeking self-defense training.
I will speak to the professionalism Da’Mon exhibits on a daily basis with his clients. He is not only passionate about our progress in the gym but also professionally as he has gotten certified in life coaching and mentors a group of us weekly on advancing our careers and lives. I watched him work with 60-100 people every morning at 5am for months and was amazed at the patience and attention to detail he displayed with everyone present. I have meet the majority of his current clients as we all get together for his birthday and one holiday each year. I am a life long client started with him in bootcamp a few years back where I lost 23lbs in 60 days and have been along for the ride ever since. I can’t say enough about the positive impact he has had on my fitness and professional journeys. I have more self confidence thanks to the body we have constructed over the years and professionally I have gone from intern to analyst to manger and on track for a director role.
Cobb Martial Arts is the perfect place to take your kids to learn karate and self defense. Nory Lugo is excellent with the kids. He explains things so it's easy for them to understand and he is very patient. All the kids love him. My son has been taking classes here for almost 1 year and we couldn't have found a better place. He has learned so much and has so much fun.
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!!
He's an outstanding teacher and there is no one else more qualified. He shocked me about it his age, but I can assure you he knows his stough and you will be satisfied. I almost didn't get anything, but he told me that you have to contact him directly at (347) 714-6738. Donte is very fun easy to get along with and he's an amazing martial artist. I wouldn't hire anyone else for this position. If you are looking for a class you must go to him. You can call or text this number at any time day or night and he will respond to you personally. Don't pass up such a golden opportunity at an amazing price. I recommend this to all who want to protect family and gain self discipline. You will be satisfied with the outcome.
My sons went to the class (17 and 21) and they both enjoyed it very much. They thought what they learned was very "cool" and felt confident that they could get out of a tight situation if it ever came to that. Thanks
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.
Tactical Survival Management coaches real world self-preservation (better known as self-defense) concepts, principles, and tactics tailored to the individual, with an emphasis on general physical preparedness (GPP) conditioning. This is the same conditioning that makes everyday life easier. It makes fighting, when the need arises, easier. This training involves developing the total person: mind, body and spirit. It develops an appreciation of and a proficiency with the tools that may be necessary to preserve life, from using rocks to improvised weaponry, firearms, last-resort weaponry, and everything in-between. Tactical Survival Management is not a style, system or newfangled martial art. It is a coaching and training philosophy, which is eclectic in nature and progressive in its mission. It is training to be a better human being who can fight, in the ways, means and methods people really use to fight, rob, hurt, maim and kill, period. Tactical Survival Management prepares you to address those types of attacks and attackers. From day one, you will be a more confident, stronger, better person who can and will fight!
