Serge is a great teacher! Very motivational. I came in with very little knowledge about self-defense and felt like I left with enough to train on the side on my own. I highly recommend Serge for a beginner like myself.

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

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 have known Ed Costigan for 40 years. We have worked together on a number of self defense projects while working with Target Consultants. He is one of the most professional people I have worked with over the years. Plus, he knows his stuff. We team taught together at a number of law enforcement conferences. I can highly recommend him without reservation. Professor Arthur Cohen B.A., M.A. Center for School and Personal Safety Research

    I have been training with Scott for nearly a year now, my goals were to lose weight but mainly tone up, gain muscles and improve my shape. I also wanted to learn boxing and gain more self confidence and energy for my every day life. I especially need somebody who motivates me and I need to see results. Working with Scott I have achieved my goals, I look and feel a lot better and it is so much fun that I don't need any extra motivation to go to training! I was particularly impressed by Scott's enthusiastic personality, people skills and knowledge of his field. I have enjoyed training with Scott and he incorporated boxing into our training in a fun way and exactly at the amount I was looking for. He is very flexible and has adjusted the training to my wishes but he knows what I need and pushes me beyond what I thought I am capable of. I would highly recommend Training with Scott, he is a well experienced, knowledgable, motivated and fun trainer to work with.

    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!!!

        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.
