I have been training with Joel for about 6 months now. He has helped me to improve my MMA and self-defensive techniques. He is working with me on my striking, kicking, boxing, and takedowns. I am impressed with his enthusiastic passion for the sport and martial arts, and his willingness to work at the pace that I need and his patience with giving me the extra time when needed. Joel is always on time and is very flexible with scheduling the days and times that do not interfere with my school and work schedule. The quality of Joel's teaching, techniques, and professionalism is very good. Overall, my experience is positive and there is nothing that I would recommend he changes.

My first time experience was Excellent! He thoroughly went over instructions and defense moves but even when I wasn’t sure or did the moves incorrectly he made sure I got the moves down packed even if that was the last thing he did. This is why I think he is a great defense teacher. He didn’t let the minor problems I had in my execution of certain movements slide he addressed them and kept addressing them until I got them right which was great. I can’t wait for my next session. - Nya

Mr. Kevin Kane has changed my life in one of the most positive ways I could ever imagine! For as long as I've been involved with martial arts, I've never worked as much, learned as much, or gained as much than being involved with Instructor Kevin and his lessons. Not only will someone increase their confidence and awareness of his/her own self-protection, but will also learn valuable life skills that are both emotionally and spiritually enlightening. Mr. Kane is one of the most unique martial artisits I have ever seen. He is also humble in his talents and thoughtful of the person learning; he is never eager to show you how tough or powerful he is, but has the right amount of control needed to help the student become the better martial artist.

Mr. Kauffman is an amazing instructor. He works with the students on a closer basis than most academies. My son absolutely loves this place and we wouldn't go anywhere else.

If your looking to learn Martial Arts for Self Defense or for the History of it this is the School to attend. Classes are small which allow the Teachers to work you more closely. I would highly recommend the school to young or old.
