    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!

      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!

      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.

        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.

        Sharon's F.L.A.G. seminar has impacted my life dramatically. I never thought anything dangerous could happen to me, but when put in the situation I had come to realize I wouldn't know what to do. With this program, I have learned some basic self defense that could save my life that I will not soon forget!

        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.
