Firs time workout, loved how prepared he was and fit the workout specifically to my needs. Pushed me to finish in a way with encouragement. If something was not working out for me, adjusted to how I did. Will definitely be looking forwards to my weekly trainings with Serge! Attitude and professionalism unbeatable.
Outstanding grappling and practical application of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kun Do. I feel very confident that I can protect myself and my family if ever put to the test. Mr. Tosado is extremely knowledgeable on various forms of fighting and has a efficient and straight forward teaching style. I would recommend all ages best, Sifu is warm and down to earth best martial arts class by far!
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.
I've trained with countless personal trainers out in NJ, VA, and here in NYC from private gyms (90 Second fitness) to public gyms ( Equinox, NYSC, LA fitness, Balleys, Mid City, MPHC, and Synergy) specifically for sprinting, fat loss, proper technique, and for other miscellaneous goals so I feel confident in my following assessment of Emmanuel George (a.k.a. Manny). I've attended approximately 10 private training lessons with Manny so far and found his style both enjoyable in terms of keeping the mood upbeat and feeling positive, while still providing a supremely intense work out along with solid technical and engaging feedback that would improve my workout and performance. I'm a stickler for proper posture and technique so I found it refreshing to see that Manny knew his stuff. I also appreciate the fact that he is extremely punctual, flexible, and accommodating with his scheduling. Manny has trained me at my gym, at his private gym, and even Central Park. And so far, he has arrived on time, with an infecting cheerful spirit, and prepared with all the equipment and with a mapped out workout plan already in mind. I really dislike it when other trainers just 'wing it' on the spot; fortunately for me, Manny shows much more initiative than that. Manny is one of the most patient, well-trained, highly skilled, reliable, and experienced personal trainers in the NYC Area. Not only does he offer extremely competitive rates and packages, but he is also extremely knowledgeable with mixed martial arts, free weights, and calisthenics. My initial goal when first starting with Manny was to just get back on a regular workout routine. However, I've already noticed substantial muscle gain, toner body, fat loss, and a much stronger core. Whatever Manny's workouts are doing for my body, it's definately working. As aforementioned, I've taken privates and group classes elsewhere, but they pale in comparison to Manny. He carries a commendable etiquette and professional and a great personality; he doesn't rush or blaze through the techniques and session with frustration and ignorance as others have with me. He even offers to take your body fat and mass stats and a diet plan. So all in all, I highly recommend seeing Manny whether you are an absolute beginner new to working out or an avid athlete with targeted goals. Keep up the good work Emmanuel! Best, SC.
I've known Ed Costigan for over 30 years in a few respects. First, as the most senior black belt instructor under Arthur Cohen he has always been there, not just for me but for Mr. Cohen and the entire organization and the law enforcement departments we've supported. Ed And I live in the same town and it's not hard to see that he's a well liked and respected member of the community. We don't talk much about his accomplishments as he keeps much private being a modest man but I can say he is a lifesaver not just as a lifeguard and a high profile security agent. More recently I have had the pleasure to train with Mr. Costigan in the Russian Martial Arts and can attest to his prowess. I would endorse and support Ed Costigan in any endeavor. Thank you Eddie!
Lamar is a special kind of trainer. I say that because whatever your goal is, he goes out of his way to find the solutions that work best for you. He could easily just give you a cookie cutter program and absent himself from your goals; but whether it is using technology or putting his own body to work with yours, he exhaust himself finding the best solution for you. He will meet you at your level and then help you improve and become better at what it is that you do. In my case I have been an amateur martial arts athlete most of my life and in my late 40's I have decided that competing in the open Ultra Heavy Weight Class in Brasilian Jiujitsu would be a blast. But I needed to improve my conditioning. I called on Lamar. Not only did he design a program for me and my specific needs as an older athlete. He also suited up in a Gi/Kimono and drilled with me until neither of us could barely move. The result was both a bronze and later a silver metal in my first two competitions. I could not a have achieved my goals without his help. That is what I want in a trainer . A trainer who cares about what it is I want to do rather than making me into something I'm not. I find that to be the difference between a novice and a master level trainer, of which is the latter, Lamar McKay is a Master LevelTrainer. Jose A. Esquea
I have trained with the art form for the past 39 years during which time it has impacted my life. I have gained confidence, discipline and commitment. Needless to say, I firmly believe that I was fortunate to have one of the best instructors (Keith Sammy).
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
My work stand out from the rest because you get one on one training at a group rate I love my job because the smile I put on people's faces we they say that i Fell beeter about myselpf or my freinds notice I lost weight
Our School stands in front of other schools due to over 50 years of experience gathered from the Cheezic Tang Soo Do Federation. Our Curriculum is especially designed to fit the needs of each and every student that comes through our doors. We realize that different people and different age groups need different types of training. Our School motto is Always Give Back More Than You Receive. The most incredible thing about teaching Cheezic Tang Soo Do (Karate) is watching the faces of our students grow each and every day of class. Imagine a student with low self-esteem tries their first Karate class. In the beginning they are too shy to even look at me in front of the class. Then part way through class magically a spark fills this students eyes and all of sudden their life will never be the same again.
