Anthony has providing my fiance and I self defense lessons for a few weeks now. The sessions combine self defense and basic strengthening exercises. He is amazing and kicks our butt every session! He is extremely responsive to our needs and continues to work with us patiently until we understand the moves.
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 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.
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!
Working with Cass Fitness, and Samantha in particular, has been a wonderful experience so far. Samantha has been on point with her professional demeanor. She is timely and organized, and most importantly, fun to work with. I have only had about two weeks of lessons and can already see some incremental results.
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 daughter is taking self-defense lessons before she heads off to college. She is learning very much from Brian and enjoying her time.
My son loves taking lessons and it's been great seeing him so excited
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.
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.
