The absolute best martial arts academy in Charlotte. The schedule was created for the average person (single mom, dad, working parents, singles etc.) with a limited availability and the location is ideal. The curriculum was created to build confidence, leadership and self-defense. They are heavily involved in giving back to the community. Looking forward to being apart of more great things in 2016 with Lotus Martial Arts Academy
Moving to Charlotte with my family was a life changing event in itself but I never knew how much more beneficial discovering Warrior Spirirt Combat Martial Arts and Sensi Mike would be for my family and my life. Since moving I've been a student of Mike's for over four years now and one thing I can say is as I have advanced in his system I have seen the same transformation/progression in my career and overall well being. When I start with this dojo I just began my first corporate job. The job was stressful and demanding and at times very overwhelming, just like all the feelings one gets in a battle. With Mike's help and training I was able to overcome all those obstacles and control any anxiety I had. Now I am a successful Commodity Specailist for a Fortune 500 company, which brings more stress but I have all the tools I need to overcome the corporate world. Sure Mike will have you ready after,your first class, to destroy a would be attacker but what more does Sensi give you? Humility, inner peace and strength, my character has been shaped and molded so that a man whom once struggled serverly with rage is now self-controlled. Control a common motif in the art and a core competency in Sensi Mike's system is what Mike offers to his students. If you want to learn at a school that is flexible, authentic and results-driven give Mike a call! Don't worry about whether your in shape or not because the beauty of this system is that no matter your condition, age or ability you will be transformed into a Warrior. - Jamal Davis-Bonilla
Training for my first mma fight and I couldn't ask for better coaches than the guys at Metrolina!!!
Very knowledgeable and professional in the teaching methods. A great opportunity to study under a well qualified Silat instructor.
Straight to the point, no gimmicks or games. I will be signing up.
I have been shooting from the age of seven. One of my favorite sports to do. A member of the NHRA since the age of sixteen. I have taken several gun-safty classes and was fully prepared to be bored, but I have never enjoyed anything more than Sgt. Carmchael's class. I learned so many things that I never knew before. I reccomend this class for the experienced as well as inexperienced gun owners. This class has something for everyone. You will not regret it. David Pate Charlotte N.C.
Master Crook will be an outstanding instructor to anyone's martial arts training or for a new student. I have known him since 1992 and earned my first Black Belt under his program. I not only judge or rate an instructor by his methods but also his students. He has made several outstanding Black Belts over the years. I am not saying I am outstanding, however I was able to win a Gold Medal in the 1993 USTU Nationals in Atlanta, Ga. I went on to own operate several schools and reach the rank of 5th Dan due to his tutelage. I highly recommend Master Crook for a teaching/instructor position. Sincerely, Master Wayne Spencer
For all that have interest in learning from a true martial arts master, Eric Jacobs is the real deal!!! I have made a commitment to this type of training many years ago and it has changed my life. The discipline that I have received allows me to adopt to any situation. Currently, I am a martial arts instructor and a former international champion. I have had the pleasure of knowing Eric for over twenty years, both on an educational and professional levels. Out of the many martial arts instructors and masters that I meet, few are as dedicated and focused as Master Eric Jacobs.
Great company with great mentors and co workers to learn from. It's professional, but also feels like a family environment.
We take our time teaching each martial arts even if it means teaching mma becus learning little by little you will never learn nothing
Martial arts have experienced an explosion of popularity since the 70s, and with that has come a flood of dojos, doctrines, and schools of thought on the subject. There is also a wide spectrum concerning the application of martial arts, ranging from visual art to sports to practical self-defense and combat. It is hard to sift through all of the information sometimes, and easy to confuse one application to another. I seek to provide a clear and concise pathway to practical self-defense, relying on the philosophy and traditions that have made martial arts so successful for thousands of years.

Why is Mangan Martial Arts Academy different? There are a lot of approaches to teaching martial arts. Some schools are very strict and traditional. You cannot talk in class. You never approach your instructor. Instead you must ask one of the assistants if you have a question. The head instructor is not only nonapproachable, but also if you make a mistake, they have some pretty interesting ways of making you know it. None of which make you feel very good! Then there are the nontraditional schools -- kind of like a playground for martial artists. There's not much in the way of respect or tradition. They don't teach many of the traditional forms and drills that the ancient masters based their systems on. Some of them are more like boxing gyms without the ring -- a total absence of tradition and decorum. We believe that the best learning situation is somewhere in between. We do believe in and follow a certain amount of the Far Eastern tradition. No, not in a religious sense at all, but we do bow as we enter the training area as a gesture of courtesy to each other. We value honor, courtesy and respect. I personally believe that the best learning atmosphere is a relaxed, friendly one. I think that is why we have attracted such a nice following of adults in our program -- men and women who like to learn and train, enjoy each other's company and have ultimate respect for themselves, the instructors and each other.
