Evis is a great trainer with a lot of knowledge about Kickboxing and martial arts in general He is very easygoing and has a laid back personality but don’t let that fool you:) He can really push you to the max As an intermediate level student I found his method to be interesting His aproach is very methodical and challenging which is what I was looking for As far as training intensity he can really get the best out of you with a very calm way I had so much fun on my first day and really enjoyed his teaching

For almost 10 years, Ali has been the perfect trainer for my 97-year old dad. With great sensitivity, respect and finesse, he has expertly crafted and customized workout experiences for my dad's specific and changing needs. He has helped my father to maintain his strength, independence and self-confidence by challenging him with various workout methods while always supporting him and encouraging him to stay active and fit both physically and mentally. He is patient, calm and has a great sense of humor, ensuring that their time together is enjoyable from start to finish for dad (even though it can sometimes be a challenge). While recuperating from a fall last year, dad became dangerously weak and had a hard time walking on his own or even getting up from bed or out of a chair. Ali monitored the situation closely and made sure that dad got back to the gym as soon as he was able, gradually and carefully helping him re-build his muscles, stamina and stability until he was again able to walk on his own, move freely, work out and enjoy his life as usual. The end result is that my dad is the strongest and happiest he's been in years. Ali is a treasure... a wise and consummate professional who consistently gets results!

While I have been a student at East Morris Karate Academy for "only" 7 years (making me a relatively short-timer among the adults), I can say with conviction that it is a one-of-a-kind place, where the incredible dedication and knowledge of both the instructors and students allow for a truly immersive experience in a traditional martial arts form that positively impacts your body, mind and spirit. The training is practical for both physical and mental self defense, and leads to a greater understanding of one's own potential and capabilities.

I've had a great experience working will Coach Bill Pratt. He has met my personal needs as a collegiate athlete and I can see my improvement from week to week. He is very knowledgable about self defense and fitness in general and has a very diverse skill set. I attribute my staying healthy for the cross country season to the strength he has been building with me.

Kris has been training me in boxing technique for a year now and i notice a huge increase in my skill level, endurance, health, and self confidence. Kris is a great mentor, setting the tone for a positive and safe learning environment. He pays attention to form and detail and pushes me hard enough where i remain interested and feel successful.

The owners are supper friendly and treat everyone like family. The self defense instructor is great, and doesn't take himself to seriously. A fantastic class and I look forward to going every week.

NOTHING beats the experience you'll have at Shunato Karate. As a kickboxing student, Sensei Kato has not only taught me the essentials of self defense, but in the process has also taught me confidence, determination, focus, patience, and the importance of a happy workout. I've dropped 6 pant sizes just having fun! Shunato isn't just a dojo, it's a family. You're not going to find anything else like it, so stop looking. Come join us!

There is not enough words in the world to describe how much this great man can help you. A few years ago I thought I was well equipped with my skills, but he showed me so much that I now know I knew so little. Mark can take you up and beyond your goals and is a great mentor and my go to man for advice. He is so wise and talented and I can't wait to train with him more in my future for the world of MMA. Not only is he knowledgable in MMA he is great for boxing, bjj, kickboxing, and muy Thai. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to be serious in the world of fighting, self defense, anyone who wants to be fit or anyone who needs a great friend or mentor to talk to. Mark goes beyond my description, you just have to try him!

Jackie is awesome. She teaches the best techniques and has helped correct my form. She cares about everyone that walks into her gym and into her life. She cares that I get it right instead of just making money. I wish I could train more often with her because I know I would be in excellent condition and a supreme fighter. Or at the very least supreme in self defense if God forbid I should ever need it. When I think of great teachers Jackie is my top 3. Probably #1. I just wish she was closer to my area. Or I closer to hers. If your close to her gym. GO!!! you will fall in love with her spirit and commitment to training. You will will find a new home too. OK I really need to move. I would literally move closer just so I can go train with her on a regular basis. I don't drive so its not easy for me to get to her. But if you can... GO!!!

As my kids were entering their later years of grammar school and preparing to enter the middle grade system, I wanted to make sure they were mentally, emotionally and physically prepared for anything and everything that came their way. I wanted to keep them in shape, protect themselves, build confidence and increase their flexibility and so I found it right here in my home town, Sifu Ivan's Ultimate Martial Arts Acadamy. We have been training here for the past 6 months and this is as good as it gets when it comes to mixed martial arts. You will have an amazing time, meet new friends and find new levels of energy. After attending for several months now, I have noticed a huge positive improvement in the areas of confidence, focus, listening, strength, self esteem, endurance and grades. They are so eager to attend that we quickly went from once a week to twice a week. They look forward to learning new skills and mastering them in order to advance to the next level. The academy also reinforces the values of respect, friendship and family. It is an incredible environment to not only learn martial arts but to also have fun in the process. Sifu Ivan is an incredible instructor not only does he teach the skill, but relates it with life experiences and applies it with example. What a phenomenal experience filled with positive energy!

The 8 year old who is bullied at school was very happy with his private lesson. He's already feeling more confident and has learned some self defense moves that are appropriate for his age, height, strength level, etc. John will be doing bi-weekly one on one self defense lessons for the next few weeks and then some. As a grandma, I'm very happy my grandon is learning how to protect himself, confidence, how to get out of bully situations, etc.

About

Private, personal self-defense, and martial arts lessons with a sensei who has been teaching students self-defense for over 30 years. I have a black belt in four separate martial arts and styles. I am dedicated and committed to both the martial arts and the student's learning and self-confidence. The martial arts began centuries ago with the teacher and student trusting and learning together in a unique and private setting. The student was able to not only learn self-defense, confidence, and protection skills, but they were also able to learn and grow as an individual and as a person. The element of trust became easier for the student as they were able to confide and learn in this sacred and private setting. There are no other students to distract you from learning, no lines, no substitute teachers, no being stuck in the back of the class or the back of the room. All questions were asked and all questions were relevant. The student was always the priority and the focus of the class and session. Always more time for learning and confidence building. That's the tradition where I came from and what I believe in. No uniform is required, no long term contract, and no hidden fee. The only request from me, Sensei Dennis, is for serious students only who keep their word, who come to class on time, who are respectful to the martial arts and the sensei, and who are willing to trust and learn. Any student who is willing to learn comes into the room leaving their ego at the door. With that agreement in mind, then that's our contract. Private classes are 90 minutes long and can be requested for any day of the week at any time provided that the time is not already scheduled. Semi-private and small group classes can be requested and done upon request. Classes can be in the day, afternoon, evening or late hours. Classes are for men, women, children, and couples. No age is too old or too young. Everyone is welcomed. Remember that personal safety and protection skills never goes out of style. Wherever you live or wherever you move to, your protection skills and advantage goes with you. I hope to have the privilege of meeting and teaching you in the future. Thank you. ~ Sensei Dennis.

Because I'm not doing this solely to get paid. I want to live in a world where a large majority of the population has studied some form of the art. I believe that if a large enough group or community train the amount of negative things that happen will decrease because they would have something that instills them with purpose and meaning.

We are reaching jujitsu to children ages four and up as well as adults. It's great for self-confidence, self-esteem and dealing with bully prevention.
