I’ve been taking self defense lessons with Anthony for about 3 months now and it has been great. He breaks down movements and explains things in a way that’s easy for a beginner to understand, and is great at tailoring workouts to my needs. I work in an emergency room where patients often become violent, and Anthony takes situations I’ve seen or my co-workers have seen and shows me how to defend myself. You can tell from your first session with Anthony that he not only is an expert in what he does, but that he loves what he does. He makes working out fun. I leave our sessions completely exhausted, as he works you hard for the full time. He’s also great at working around my crazy schedule. I enjoy our sessions so much I’ve been passing out his business cards to all my work friends!
I went to Brian for self-defense lessons. I had no previous experience, but I never felt talked down to or uncomfortable with Brian. His techniques were very practical and real-life applicable, as well as quick to pick up. Brian gave lots of instruction to make sure I understood everything and made the learning process easy. After just a few weeks I already began to feel very capable of defending myself in a wide variety of situations due to Brian's training. I highly recommend Brain, and would definitely go back to him.
My family and I have been going here for 4 years. Mr.Tull at (PIMA) champions karate is great. Mr. Tull has an awesome method of teaching us. He teaches us the skills that we need to know and we have fun while doing it!
My two teenage daughters and I trained with David, our instructor, with Falcon Security. It was the best decision we have ever made! Not only did we learn skills to protect ourselves, but we now feel empowered! I know my daughters will be more careful and ready at a momemt's notice to defend and protect themselves, heaven forbid should they need to! As for myself, I have a true confidence that should I find myself in an unsafe situation, I can handle it without a shadow of a doubt. David was spot on with his lessons. He conveyed what can happen to any of us but did so in a professional way. I know he really cared about our well-being and he took our lessons to heart every session. He pointed out scenarios that the girls have never yet contemplated and then gave them the skills to handle what ever can happen. At 17 and 18 it was time for them to learn self defense. David was awesome and I couldn't be happier with the results!
I would highly recommend Baltimore Martial Arts Academy for many reasons and from a couple different view points. As a student - Gary Berger and his staff are experts instructors not only in martial arts but fitness of both mind and body. I have been in the military for 21 years, have lived all over the world and have never seen a gym with so many different courses of instruction. Such a wide array and blending of talent is hard to find and almost impossible in a single school. Patient and professional - I have found these instructors to look at the individual and tailor classes to student needs and goals. The plethora of instructors is simply amazing. I have 3 Aikido instructors my son has 5 different jujitsu instructors and my daughter has 2 different kickboxing instructors - getting all of there collective strengths and experiences - class never gets boring or routine. As a father - I have two teenagers attending Baltimore Martial Arts Academy and can not imagine a better environment for an extracurricular activity.My Son has attained his black belt in mixed martial arts and is working on belts in both judo and straight jujitsu. He is on the competition team and has competed nationally in numerous grappling and judo competitions - qualifying this year for the judo junior nationals this summer. It has been a great outlet for teenage aggression for both kids and has shown them a positive way to harness energy that would be otherwise wasted. His skills will serve him well in high school as he plays football and wrestles. My Daughter is working on a belt in mixed martial arts and taking kickboxing classes. Not the competitor her brother is I have found the discipline and fitness she is learning will carry on through her entire life. As a father it is good to know that my daughter can defend herself and walks with a confidence that she may otherwise have not found. My children are the most important thing in my life and my greatest legacy - I feel blessed to have found this gym with such a large group of both male and female role models to help me raise my children and instill the values we all find so lacking in the world today. It is refreshing to find a place where integrity, honor, respect and discipline are not only preached but taught, practiced and expected. All in all I was lucky or destined to find Baltimore Martial Arts Academy. I have found a family that cares about me and my families well being. I hope all of you are as lucky. Justin D. Pyle
Christian Noll so skillfully injects humor into every training session that you might not realize how much you've learned until you're done for the day. Since starting at Arundel Aikikai 10 months or so ago, I have not had a single bad experience. The more advanced students never begrudge working with a beginner, instead helping to further enhance the good instruction that Christian provides. The environment is low-pressure so that I've never felt bad for having trouble with a technique or not remembering something from a previous session. At the same time, I feel like I'm learning a lot in every lesson. I would definitely recommend taking aikido here, no matter who you are or where you are in life.
My son loves taking lessons and it's been great seeing him so excited
Alex is very professional, communicative and pleasant to work with. My children very much enjoy the lessons and are clearly learning the different skills that Alex is teaching them. We've only had a few lessons, but we are very pleased so far.
Al is an incredible instructor, patient, tolerant, humble, zen and wise. He makes me want to take martial art as an everyday practise. I recommend him to young and old.
Sensei Matt is very well versed in this profession and is very attentive to students and dedicates his time to make sure each lesson is well understood by each student. I love my classes and the referral program is a big incentive as well because it gives you a discount! Overall I’m very happy and satisfied!
I am in my 40s and wanted to learn martial arts and get into shape. I tried several traditional martial arts schools without learning much. At one place, the white belts (beginners) were an afterthought for the instructors. I took a few more trial lessons at other schools. I found myself training with young children. Nothing against kids but I wanted realistic self defense skills which are not developed against 9 year olds. At the last school, I was immersed in boot camp training (did a bazillion push-ups, bear crawls, jumping jacks, etc. etc.) Karate skills took a back seat to the workout. This kind of training is fine if that is what you are looking for, but I wanted to learn practical martial arts skills without having a drill instructor yelling at me. I have had several lessons with Jordon now, and I can tell you they have been well worth it. I learn more during a 1 hour lesson than I did in several weeks at the martial arts schools I went to. Jordon is positive and encouraging, and is mindful of the physical limitations that I have (arthritis). He teaches Shorin-Ryu Karate which is not flashy but is all about practical and effective self defense. I am also getting into shape gradually at a pace my body can take. I highly recommend Jordon.
I have trained with Tammy for quite some time now. The reason I started was weight loss with the goal of learning a skill at the same time. Weight loss achieved, the skills I have learned have changed my life for the better. My first impression of Tammy was that of a person who clearly knew how to work with people of all ability and mindset. It turns out, the first impression was correct. Her patience is amazing and willingness to help or answer any question is very warming.
I have teaching karate (kempo), judo, and some weapons system for twenty years. I am an excellent one-on-one teacher.
