  1. #1 Roselle Martial Arts Academy/Cobra Kai Kung Fu

    (5 reviews)

    Sandy e.

    I initially signed up for this as a way to get back into shape, however thanks to Don and his Assistant instructors its morphed into something much more amazing. I'm only just barely a month into private training and group classes and I've already done so many things I didn't think my body was capable of doing. Not only that it's also an amazingly fun time throughout each class and session. I'm currently signed up with a friend and honestly all week we look forward to coming in and training with don! He makes it fun, and easy to grasp. Everything is explained step by step. If there is something you feel insecure about he's sure to work with you on it. If there's a certain style you want to work on that day he's more then happy to help. It's not about making money like most places are these days. He wants you to feel safe outside of the classroom and wants you to be confident in each technique you learn. Even his students, young to adults, will go out of their way to help you nail a technique or combo, something they obviously learned from Don. I would recommend him for any person looking to feel safer, stronger, more confident and even healthier in their life.

    Brennan is fantastic! He's flexible with scheduling sessions and I always feel great after his workouts! He's opened my eyes to boxing and how great of a workout it is. He has been helpful with recipes & meal planning as well. He really cares & it shows!

    I walked into this dojo about 3 years ago thinking I was just nursing a temporary fad and would get bored with it and quit soon after. I'm still here. Sensei Garza teaches Aikido with a passion an dedication that would make the Samurai proud. You will love this dojo.

  5. #5 Suburban Warrior Fitness

    (1 reviews)

    Jesus M.

    At first i was skeptical whether or not i could really learn anything from just one guy but Adam was really informative and understanding. I told him about my weaknesses and a little about what i already know and he was able to figure a routine that would work best for me. He was quite fair when it came to work-outs and made sure it was just at the right pace, after one session i already felt stronger than i ever did before and for that i am grateful. I would recommended taking Adam's services for anyone willing to learn basic or just fundamental of what Adam offers to teach. Overall a nice and good instructor and i plan on taking more sessions with him.

    \I recently began taking lessons from Doug. I have no fighting experience and he has been very patient showing me the proper technique and foot work to build a good base of knowledge for boxing. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great workout and one on one training. JD
