Terrific, articulate coach for practical self-defense techniques for my 16-year old daughter to understand, practice and excel at also for a good cardio workout. He's super nice and very knowledgeable about different techniques and what works best for her.

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.

    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.

      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.
