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.
