I moved to North Carolina five years ago and almost immediately started my search for a Martial Arts school. I visited many schools in the Triangle area and joined different schools for a month or so to find out if they were what I was looking for, but there was always something missing. I even gave up my search for awhile, and continued to train on my own. My wife begin to think I would never find what I wanted in a martial arts school because my previous Martial Arts school in Michigan had such a great teacher. She would always say I know you, and I can tell none of these schools give you the same fulfillment that your old martial art school did, and she was right! Before committing to train at what was a good school, but not exactly what I wanted, I found 4 Winds and set up a free private introductory class with Sifu Bob Melander, then attended a few group classes. This turned out to be a great decision, and should be the meaning of save the best for last. Sifu (teacher) is thrown around a lot, but not everyone should have that title. Sifu Bob Melander deserves that title and embodies what a martial arts teacher should be. Now every time I come home from training at 4 Winds Martial arts my wife tells me that's the fulfilled look on your face that I didnt see before. I couldnt be happier training with Sifu Bob and I recommend anyone else from beginner to advanced looking to learn internal and external martial arts, self defense, weapons and more, from a great Sifu visit 4 Winds Martial Arts. Dont make the mistake I made, visit 4 Winds Martial Arts before the others.
Stuart is the ultimate professional so so knowledgeable about self-defense. He was great to work with and was very patient as he explained each move.
Absolutely Love and Impressed! I signed up to help my daughter get in shape for her wedding but found that I am getting more benefits health wise out this than I expected. Jayd is very knowledgeable and proffessional, she even goes out of her way to modify my workouts for my health issues. Meeting with Jayd once a week , as well as, having to log my workouts and meals daily is perfect since I am not a self motivated person when it come to eating right and exercising. I will definitely be renewing my contract with her.

Stewart and Tactical Survival Training is hands-down the best self defense training Ive ever had. Along with some fitness training, my wife and I received firearms instruction from Stewart that was second-to-none! What really impressed us was that his instruction was so STRONGLY based in REAL-WORLD scenarios. There was absolutely no fluff or showing off, and each piece of instruction had several layers of both mechanical and statistical reasons to back it up. He even sent us home with simple drills we do to improve performance and recall in high-stress situations. Stewart does not have the ego that you often run into with instructors in this field. He listens, assesses, and gives you his best instruction that is almost always supported by irrefutable evidence. We had no idea how little we knew before taking the classes. I would recommend Tactical Survival Training to ANYONE, young or old, in any line of work or location. The Tactical Survival website and newsletters offer TONS of real-world training that is keep VERY up-to-date with recent trends in crime, statistics, and science. I have no doubt that the training you receive with TST would save your life if the situation ever warrants it.
Received instruction from Sifu Alston in the martial arts for many years. Under his guidance I have learned specific techniques in multiple arts as well as how to apply them in practical real life situations. His high level of knowledge and dedication to the martial arts is reflected in his instruction and desire to develop others to achieve greatness.
