My first time stepping into the dojo was nerve wracking and I was looking at a bunch of students rolling around and sparring and here I was, feeling a little out of place. Then I was suddenly greeted by Sensei Grisko and you could tell he cared and he wasnt just about getting someone in the door but actually wanting to share his skill AND knowledge. Shortly after that I was greeted by Zack, Chris and Alex who were just as friendly and before I knew it, I was conditioning, throwing punches and rolling around. These guys (and others) really made the effort to make the class challenging but insured that egos were left outside. Its what made me keep coming back. I have a background in karate and have been to several dojos where you are just another paycheck or the egos are so big within the teachers that its not about teaching anymore. I can tell you that you wont regret joining and that Sensei Grisko is not just about imparting martial art knowledge but also everyday lessons on life something that he passes on down to his apprentices. There is something intensely different about this dojo and you will notice it the moment you step in the dojo. What are you waiting for????
Coach Slavica is great! I had never taken lessons or done any type of self defense instruction before. A friend of mine and student of hers referred me to her for lessons in Krav Maga. I was skeptical about whether it was for me, but seeing the passion with which she teaches and talks about Krav got me really fired up. She doesn't just teach me what to do, but she explains from a fundamental level why I'm doing it so I have a full understanding of what Im trying to accomplish with my techniques. She has also been flexible in scheduling which is a big plus because I have a crazy schedule. Highly recommend!
I took boxing lessons with Andy and had a fantastic experience. My original reason for the lessons was to get a more intense workout. I certainly got the workout I was looking for (Andy asked a lot of questions to understand what I wanted to get out of the experience and tailored his approach to make sure I stayed challenged), and I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had at the same time. Moreover, even though I originally planned to use the lessons as a workout, I find myself moving through the city and navigating my physical interactions with people, in general, differently now. I gained a confidence in and awareness of my own body and abilities that I didn't even know I was lacking. Can only say good things about working with Andy and about what I gained from the experience!
\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
Jay did a great job accommodating my busy schedule. He is knowledgeable and professional. I recommend his class to beginners or anyone looking to improve his/her self-defense techniques.
Strive is a top notch facility with incredible instructors. The way they teach these kids stretches beyond Strive with lessons to be used at home and at school. The change in discipline and confidence in my children has been priceless. I'm grateful to Strive for being such a positive influence for my children.
Lessons are given in several martial art disciplines including tai chi, hsingyi, and pa kua (over 40 years). These are called internal martial arts in that they require a great deal of meditation and breathing techniques.
