I took 10 self-defense classes with Anthony and it was an amazing learning experience and workout. He took the time to make sure all our techniques were solid and then built on that, regardless of skill level. He let the class run away with the fun occasionally but other than that, his classes were everything I was hoping for.
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.
Brian did a great job tailoring a self-defense class for my daughter and me. My daughter had only 2 days before moving to New York to take this class, so Brian had to cram as much information and practice into two sessions as he could. He did a great job and both my daughter and I feel more confident about our self-defense capabilities.
A friend has advised me to take self-defense training, not a typical self defense course, a special training made by Falcon. I thought that he was joking, thats been the true: a training give by an Israeli school security expert thought outdoors in real places. I did a special training, very special. I never found and did in my entire life nothing like that. Falcon was patient and constant to take me to be independent for my personal security. I learn a lot important interesting things. With Falcons school I did an articulate training, taking care of all the technical, psychological, physical and behavioral aspects. Falcon is a high level security professional even if he doesnt want to show it. His reserved behavior is synonym of guaranty, professionalism and importance. I have to be sincere, this training was really exhausting but I dont regretet it.
Elin designed a creative program to help my 9 year old son prepare for his martial arts tournaments. My son definitely made improvements in his strength, agility and stamina. Elin was also able to fine tune his kicking and blocking skills since he has experience in various self defense/fighting skills. Elin is quick to respond to emails/text/calls and has tremendous knowledge in the art of exercise, bodybuilding and nutrition. I highly recommend Elin and his team for anyone looking for a professional personal trainer.
Zurianne gave me a personal training session and was able to tailor it to key self defense techniques I wished to learn. He was patient, had a positive attitude throughout, and was clearly very skilled in multiple martial arts. His knowledge in these various disciplines allowed him to give me the technique he thought would be best suited for me. It is clear that practice is required to use these skills effectively, but he gave me a good foundation. Thank you Zurianne!
In the short time that I have been training at Virginia Okinawan Karate, I've learned so much about kata and how every movement has a practical application. Sensei teaches in a fun, motivating way. The upper belts are always willing to stay around after class to help you. While my schedule is busy, every minute of training with Sensei and the class is invigorating and motivating. I've trained for more than 10 years in other styles and recently just came back to martial arts. I am so grateful to have found this place. I highly recommend training at Virginia Okinawan Karate. The class structure and curriculum is ideal for adult practitioners. You'll have fun and learn practical self defense skills.
Junaid quite simply changed my life. When i first came to him 2 years ago, I was overweight and my overall self-esteem was poor. He is so good at relaying information about nutrition, fitness, and discipline I felt as if I was getting my own professor to teach me for practically nothing. I have lost over 12 percent in body fat thanks to his workouts and teachings. When i look in the mirror now I not only see an improved body, but an improved person as well.
I have teaching karate (kempo), judo, and some weapons system for twenty years. I am an excellent one-on-one teacher.
This is not a typical self-defense class. This is a re-training of my mind to better understand the physical forces at work, so I can then retrain my body to respond in a most efficient way. I am already feeling more empowered and in charge of my body. This is flowing over to my mind as I begin to take more control over decisions I make and relationships I am in. This is a self-defense class for my entire being- not just my body.
I not only teach you how to defend yourself from the average person. I also teach you how to defend yourself from people like me who already know how to fight!
I have been attending self defense classes with Talal for several months now. He is an amazing coach: very professional and at the same time he has fun personality. Classes are never boring! I'm looking forward to continue working with him.
We are a one stop shop for ALL training.
When I met breelaun, I had just stepped foot into a gym for the very first time in 19 years!! I didn't have the motivation, was very self-conscious, and was very intimidated by the machines. breelaun didn't make me feel like a big out of shape loser. He is very patient, and knowledgeable on fitness & nutrition. He's super laid back and not your typical "military" style trainer. Don't get me wrong, there were times I whined & said I was tired, & he'd let me rest for a little (like 1 minute) lol & get back to working out .Most important, I was very comfortable with him. I am very happy I made the choice of getting training w/breelaun & have made major changes in my lifestyle.breelaun is the best. Very serious about getting you to achieve your personal best while maintaining a fun environment. It's important to enjoy your workouts and breelaun makes sure that you have a good time. !!!! Thanks BREE BREE ;)
As a Military Police Platoon Leader, security is much more than a job for me. It's a calling. And everyone who works for me shares that calling. SHADOW exists to protect what you can't afford to lose.
