Evis did an excellent job engaging our women's only kickboxing class our facility hosted. He was very attentive with our attendees and had them focused and engaged. They were raving about he class afterwards, and are looking forward to the next one. Not only was it an excellent work out, but they had fun too!

It all started with 3 words. I was first inspired to visit the East Morris Karate Academy years ago when I came across an old yellow-page ad describing the school that said: “Tradition / Society / Profession”. This short description was (and still is) unusual in a market that hypes MMA, cage fighting, barb-wire tattoos, “kiddie karate” and/or women’s self defense for weight loss programs. So I was curious… could this be the real deal? What I learned rather quickly was 1) That not all karate schools are the same; 2) that the East Morris Karate Academy taught karate in the traditional sense of the word… and; 3) that my life was about to change in a myriad of ways for the better. I got stronger, focused, more confident, and began finding successes both in, and out, of the dojo. Now, years later, I’ve seen this happen countless times in many of our adult and junior students. This stuff does work! Whether you are an adult looking to study martial arts, or a parent looking for a quality program for your child - you can’t go wrong with Mr. Musco & East Morris Karate Academy. They are everything that karate is supposed to be about.

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

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!

    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!!!

    I've been studying FMA under Guro Alex for about 8 months. He not only helped me reconnect with FMA, but because of his background in fitness, has also shown me exercises to complement the martial arts training. If you are looking for an effective self-defense class but require a physical fitness element to complement that training, then I highly suggest you seek Guro Alex.

    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.

    I teach classical self defense not modern sports martial arts. This is not a fitness class and it's not Muy Ty or Kung Fu. If your looking for those please find someone teaching that. If you ARE interested in the real ancient battlefield techniques of the samurai and osoteric warriors of Warring States Period Japan, this is what you looking for. This art is a high quality self defense method that works regardless of the practitioners size, strength or age. This martial art WORKS at all levels!
