I requested an unusual job from Michael at Main Street Martial Arts Self Defense school. Because my request was so specific and unusual, it didnt seem like he would be able to help. The only other class in the area wont meet for two months. . Michael creatively found a way to give me what I wanted: he customized his class to accommodate my wife and me. He fit us in right away. He and his assistant instructor both personally worked with my wife and me to practice the techniques and ensure we understood them. Michael gave me the realistic advice that its an experienced fighter who will be able to competently defend herself. With that caveat, he taught us three techniques which gave my wife and I what we were looking for: a brief introduction, useful knowledge, and a insight into how beneficial it is to have a general competence in self-defense techniques. He taught us and the rest of the students in his class in an affable way, making the serious learning fun.. Michael was reasonably priced and provided us with a great experience. I would recommend him and Main Street School.
I think Infinity is a great place to work out because it is so warm and inviting. You never feel self conscious or uncomfortable around the other guests. The staff are the best you will find anywhere and they truly care about you personally and will do all they can to help you accomplish your fitness goals.
Our son has been a student of Sensei Asa for five years. Sensei Asa's teaching style is one that focuses on inner strength and self awareness. The purpose and expectation of each lesson is clearly defined which creates an atmosphere of mutual respect, transparency, and personal growth for students of all ages.
My girls just started and they feel more confident already. Nic is great with kids. I wish I found jiu jitsu sooner. Great for self defense. So much more realistic for fighting then karate. Great prices.
Tom Bruno came out to our company to give a class on self defense. He was extremely knowledgeable and has the ability to connect with people on all levels. He made it very interactive while training and teaching valuable lessons in self defense. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have a corporate training to even a smaller class.
I have studied with Eric for several years. He has a deep understanding of martial arts and is a seasoned and nurturing teacher who meets each student according to their interests and skill level. The American Ketsugo Jujitsu Club is a welcoming environment for students of any level to learn an effective self-defense system while have fun. Classes are small and allow for plenty of personalized attention. If you have any interest you should drop by and give it a try!
DMA is more than just a place to get into shape, it is a place to change your life. I started taking the DynaMMAX class to increase my fitness level, little did I know it would be a life changing experience with more than just physical results. I have gained a renewed sense of self confidence and empowerment and have made lasting friendships. The physical changes of increased strength and weight loss are just the beginning of the positive results you will gain from this class. I would come home from DynaMAXX class feeling so strong and self assured, raving to my husband about the positive environment and wonderful people. My husband was never really interested with the regular gyms because of the intimidating and lackluster environment. In fact I would have to twist his arm just to get him to go. Well it wasn't long after I began to go to DMA that he joined me and that unenthusiastic attitude was washed away by the welcoming, empowering and positive environment that exists at DMA. For the first time in his life he looks forward to working out and can't wait for the next class. The foundation for DMA's success is the atmosphere and attitude created by Coach Mike. I have been exposed to the fitness world for 20+ years and Coach Mike is by far the most knowledgeable and effective trainer I have ever met. The workouts are constantly changing, every workout is different and can be adapted to ALL fitness levels. Coach Mike helps you reach your full potential and is a positive motivator. The bottom line is he will make you a better person physically and mentally. As a matter of fact, my husband and I often say, "I can't imagine life without DMA!".
Regional Instructor Ben, and the New England wide instructor team, are true devotees to their craft of self-development and simultaneously incredibly attentive and careful teachers of new students like myself. I joined Oom Yung Doe because I needed a practice that grew my inner life through my physical strength, not one or the other. I was a competitive hockey player for fifteen years and nothing has changed my attitude, strengthened my mind, and stimulated me to life so much as my new practice with OYD.
I took a lot out of the experience. Denis informed me what my pros and cons were. How he could work with each to improve my technique. I look forward to more sessions.
Professional, highly skilled and fun. I'm hooked after two lessons.
I assisted Kristin as a demonstrator in several of her news interviews, showing the public how some of her defensive tactics could be used against an aggressor. It is important to have a plan in place to respond in the event you are ever targeted by an aggressor, but more importantly there are proactive components to her training that could alter the way an aggressor will perceive you. Either way, whether this training will alter the aggressor's decision to target you in the first place, or whether it puts you in a better position to respond, the way I see it you just can't lose by taking the training.
My child has been at the Academy for 2 years now. It is amazing what they have done for his self confidence and self esteem. He has done better in school and his teachers are thrilled. He has also learned to be street smart and how to protect himself. In today's society that is so important. The professional level of instruction there is top notch. Thank-You Sensei Kevin and the entire staff

At Emerald Necklace Martial Arts, we embrace martial arts training as a way of life, and teaching effective self-defense techniques is only a part of what we do. Our primary goal is to introduce our members to the philosophies that permeate the martial arts, and to show people how to apply these principles to their everyday lives -- outside of our school and in ways that have very little to do with blocking, kicking, and punching. This, we believe, is the ultimate form of self-defense. Sensei Jason Gould provides traditional martial arts instruction to dojo members, and he is available for consultations and private personal safety and self-defense seminars with individuals and groups.
