great workout. I’ve been doing martial arts for 15 years, and looking for someone who can il my game. Serge fits the bill - I learnt a bunch of new techniques, improved some others and left exhausted. it was great!
I have trained mixed martial arts with Evis on a regular basis. His teaching style was very hands on and he gave me excellent tips on my form and technique. I highly recommend training with him if you want to excel at MMA.
I worked with Curtis 2-3x a week for about a year and I was in the best shape. He tailored the workouts to my level and needs and helped me get stronger. He is extremely knowledgeable about the body, muscles and fitness in general. What I loved about working with Curtis is he's very personable. He encourages, supports and motivates - he's genuinely interested in your goals and works with you to obtain them. I saw him frequently but the workouts always varied - he's always coming up with different exercises - this is a good example of keeping it fun for the client AND shows his commitment to learning more about training for his own professional development. I looked forward to the workouts that were challenging and intense. I definitely recommend working with Curtis!
I have known Mike for a long time. Hands down, he is the first guy I go to for my fitness program! A knowledgeable professional in so many areas who takes his time to work with you and cares about your fitness and health. A person of true integrity is a rare commodity these days and Mike is one of those individuals...... Soke John C.

Martial arts have been a part of my life for nearly 30 years. I have studied in many different schools over the years. For nearly the least 15 years, I have studied at the East Morris Karate Academy. Prior schools taught martial arts strickly in a physical combat point of view. East Morris Karatae Academy does teach such physical self defense, but also teaches martial arts as a way of life. Very few of us have to actually defend our lives in hand to hand combat. The training at East Morris Karate Academy help us learn how to defend ourselves against the continual stresses of life that we all face.
It is my great pleasure to study and work with Master Mark Kline. If you are interested in learning the martial arts and understanding how and why they work I highly recommend Master Kline's PinPoint Method and his Kyusho Institute.
The best coach’s, they put all there time and effort into you making sure that you get the right training. They stay by your side the whole work out correcting all your mistakes making sure that you do everything correctly to prevent injure and learn everything the right way. You can literally do everything you want starting from 10 different martial arts, to fitness and weight lifting, by far one of the best gyms in Brooklyn and Staten Island and highly recommend for everyone kids and adults of all ages, kids as young as 4 and adults as old as 70. Just all around amazing!!
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.
I am becoming who I am because of my training. I am stronger, healthier and more self confident. Great instructors who believe in the students all the way. Five stars...
I train under Guru Glenn in Jersey one of Andy's students. Love taking a ride into NY. To train with a real master of the art of fighting. He shows what will really work. The arnis work makes me so much quicker and aware whats going on, it's not a easy art to learn but if your up for the challenge, will inhance you fighting ability 10 fold. especially when i lose the sticks and go with empty hand sparring. The group of guy's that train there are very inviting like you've known them a long time always willing to show you pointers where needed. Been around a few systems, this guy is the real deal. Gene
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!
We offer the best self defense classes in NYC. Get into shape and learn how to protect yourself.

For me, I've been training for 24 years in Tiger Schulmann's. I continue my training three days a week each week to keep up with my certification. I have a curriculum that I teach each week to my students from Master Tiger Schulmann. The way I am with my students makes it feel like a family environment.. I give them everything of myself to better help them reach their goals. My school is a place where people feel safe and can always come to, no matter their day, good or bad.
I am an independent instructor. I am training clients in a variety of interests. I have been a teacher and fitness coach for over 20 years.
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.
