I started with Quintin about 6 months ago. Since that time he has helped me to get more out of my workouts which has not only helped my health but also my self confidence. He is a fantastic motivator and is always upbeat and positive while pushing me to set and achieve new goals in health and fitness!

    I began my experience training with Kent Nelson at his school, KSK Martial Arts, by participating in the school's 2 part Women's Self Defense classes. I was unsure what to expect, but found the experience to be empowering and fun. Kent Nelson and his staff were clearly very knowledgeable, great teachers, and made me feel comfortable. I enjoyed the self defense classes so much that I began taking MMA-JKD at KSK Martial Arts. It was an intimidating thing for me to do, as I was a woman who had never participated in any sort of martial arts training before. And as a newbie I found training at KSK to be something hugely enjoyable. I have now been a student at KSK for a year. I always look forward to class and find the methods used to train students to be inclusive, informative, practical, and done in a manner that is low-pressure, focused on detail, and so much fun that I always leave class exhilarated having learned new things while getting a pretty good workout as well! It’s a fantastic facility, led by a very knowledgeable and engaging teacher that is Guro Kent Nelson. I am so happy to be training at KSK and look forward to discovering where training at KSK Martial Arts will take me. I have learned so much and have so much more to learn from Guro Kent and the rest of the KSK folks! Go there! Try it out!

    I have experienced Lenny's teaching skills in a 2 part self defense class for women. This was a larger class than expected. Lennie was prepared with a binder of materials for each of us, many simulations for us to engage in, as well as 2 extra teachers to work with the larger group. I particularly enjoyed Lennie's enthusiasm for the subject and his constant encouragement.

    I was so pleased to find Sam! I wanted a self defense class specifically for myself and my daughter. We had 3 participants and Sam was willing to travel to us. He gave us an excellent, hands on, 2 hour class. He was so down to earth and very informative. He gave us various situations of attack and how to best fight your way out of those attacks. Sam's best attribute was that he cared about what each individual was needing from the class. For my daughter it was how to deter unwanted advances. For my friend, who is a runner, it was how to get out of a situation if she was attacked when running. For me, it was to learn the counterpoints you can utilize to get someone to stop their attack. Sam was fantastic! I highly recommend using him for your self defense needs!

      We have only been members for a short while with Denny and Andrea Strecker, but already our 4 year old is saying to me at home "Yes Mamam" when I ask him to help with chores etc! Also my 7 year old is having a great time with the other kids and it is building his self-esteem!
