I learned about this dojo through great reviews on Thumbtack. They were a non-profit, martial arts school that offered training in various martial arts, in an authentic atmosphere and a sincere sense of community. This is what got me interested, and I came for a free trial. The positive reviews were true but someone interested in martial arts should come here and experience for themselves to understand the sincerity of this place.I was treated with politeness and respect, and had an amazing first time learning experience. When you step in and spend time there you see why it is a dojo and not a gym from the way students and coaches interact, practices in the dojo to the friendly community they have there. Our Sense Mr. Werth was patient, calm and friendly, even in one class and a couple of conversations I had with him was enough for me to see the dedication he has to this place and the teachings of martial arts and its philosophy as a way of life.This place is like their home where people show respect and care for each other which is something I appreciated.They do not only have self defense classes but meditation and after school care for children, it seems like a place that cares for their students as a whole, contributing to their lives not just on a physical level.I have signed up for more classes and I am looking forward to better myself in every aspect thisbdojo has to offer. I recommend this place to anyone interested in Martial arts or anyone looking for a community to be a part of or bettering themselves to a more peaceful, self disciplined individual. I highly recommend everyone the free trial to experience this place.

First I went to NEMA to enroll my son on a take in a martial class to make sure he would learn about self defense,and Master Cooper not only teaches that but the most important thing I had forgot,called DISCIPLINE. I was amazed by the way he handle that and have the control on the control over their students. Even I started training MMA and loved the Saturday sparring class. I highly recommend NEMA. Too bad I moved out of state,otherwise my son and I would still there.

Nicks teaching is hands down unbeatable. His attention to detail is what makes his self defense skills, as good as they are. If you are beginner or advanced person he can tailor his teaching skills to fit anyone with any issue... I highly recommend nick to any one who needs self defense.....

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.

    We started at Anshin when Mike held an anti-bullying workshop. Mike has been a great instructor for both of my sons. Mike focuses on encouraging kids to grow in martial arts skills and respect for one another. My sons really enjoy learning and practicing at Anshin. My sons have learned to practice self control and gained self confidence.

    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!


    Do not let yourself be a victim. I teach self-defense and all that surrounds it. I give people something to reach in and grab onto when they get pushed into a corner and need to pull out something to escape, shield, and end the confrontation.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
