What can I say about Serge that isn't great? He has such a positive way of working with clients that both motivates and engages them. Whether you're looking to learn self defense or just get into 'fighting' shape – he's willing and able to create an individualized program for you that works with your needs!
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
I give Anna 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ She guided me in living a better happier and healthier lifestyle through fitness! She didn't let me give up and thought me how to find my self motivation . She is really a catch! Thank you for the way u made me feel and look ! Hope u well !😀
Andre was very professional and communicative. He understood what I wanted and tailored a self defense training class that fit my needs. During the class, he was thorough, but he also kept the language and technique easy to understand. We learned a lot in a short amount of time and walked away with knowledge and confidence. I highly recommend Andre Tosado and Defensivefit.
For almost 10 years, Ali has been the perfect trainer for my 97-year old dad. With great sensitivity, respect and finesse, he has expertly crafted and customized workout experiences for my dad's specific and changing needs. He has helped my father to maintain his strength, independence and self-confidence by challenging him with various workout methods while always supporting him and encouraging him to stay active and fit both physically and mentally. He is patient, calm and has a great sense of humor, ensuring that their time together is enjoyable from start to finish for dad (even though it can sometimes be a challenge). While recuperating from a fall last year, dad became dangerously weak and had a hard time walking on his own or even getting up from bed or out of a chair. Ali monitored the situation closely and made sure that dad got back to the gym as soon as he was able, gradually and carefully helping him re-build his muscles, stamina and stability until he was again able to walk on his own, move freely, work out and enjoy his life as usual. The end result is that my dad is the strongest and happiest he's been in years. Ali is a treasure... a wise and consummate professional who consistently gets results!
Ed is a great choice for anyone interested in learning self defense. Ed quickly responded to all of my emails. He tailors the lessons to what you want to learn. Ed is very friendly, punctual and motivated. He isn’t staring at his watch looking to be done with you. My lessons all have run long because Ed is such a motivated teacher. You can really tell that he loves what he’s doing. If you’re thinking of learning self defense or expanding on your self defense knowledge, drop Ed a line, he is a capable motivated teacher. He will respond quickly and his prices are extremely reasonable. Take one class and you will see what I mean.
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.
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.
Tang Soo Do is a wonderful martial art that provides great discipline, self respect, flexibility and a great source of weight loss. The teachers at Valley Karate are fantastic and they provide a variety of different instructions in line work, terminology, forms, one-step self defense techniques and grabs. They make themselves available for any help or support that is needed by any student. Valley Karate provides a great family inclusion aspect with Parents Night, Buddy Week and Family day. They also hold kids tournaments that make each of them winners no matter what happens and will be holding their first school tournament next Saturday, March 26th. Master Bergers is a superb role model for all the kids and adults, as well as all the other Masters and Dans. Finally, the students all aspire for Black Belt excellence at whatever level they are. Valley Karate rocks!
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!

Because I'm not doing this solely to get paid. I want to live in a world where a large majority of the population has studied some form of the art. I believe that if a large enough group or community train the amount of negative things that happen will decrease because they would have something that instills them with purpose and meaning.
