Sensei Holley is the perfect individual to learn a martial art from. The martial arts are about building your character as a human being even more so than the skills you will develop to be a fighter. Sensei truly teaches shotokan karate as Master Funakoshi had intended as a self defense. Sensei is humble and has the true spirit of budo. He teaches us first to avoid a confrontation and if a confrontation can't be avoided how to end it using only as much force as necessary to escape the situation. Taking a class with sensei will not only help you develop the skills needed to defend yourself and others but how to be a respected member of the community that others can look up to because of the quality of your character. I haven't met an individual at our dojo that doesn't hold Sensei in the highest regard. I respect this man as much as humanly possible and am proud to say that my karate lineage comes from this great man. My wife and I have been training under Sensei for 2 years on and off and just recently obtained our green belts. Sensei is fair but will make you earn your belts so expect to advance slower than some other dojo's. This is a good thing though because you will have not only earned your belt but have the experience necessary to preform what you have learned well. So please come join us. You will get a great work out, You will learn a lot about yourself physically and mentally and you will accomplish things you didn't know you could.

My 9 yo son and 11 yo daughter took Triune’s 2 hour self defense class for kids. Dan and Kim did an amazing job speaking at the kids level and spending time with each of the students to make sure they understood the techniques being taught. It was money very well spent.

Training with Coach Tate has been life changing! In the 2 years I have trained with him, I've lost 20 lbs (wasn't even trying to loose weight), have gotten stronger and and am in much better shape. His method pushes you to get better, but you enjoy it! I would really recommend him to help everyone. My daughter is going off to college next year and I'm going to have her take self defense classes before she goes.

I started at TAMA a year and a half ago, and I absolutely love it. It is my home away from home. There were two things that impressed me most within my first week: 1. Everything was relaxed, yet professional. - I was very intimidated when I first thought about learning karate; I had visions of the large schools seen in movies like the Karate Kid. When I entered Tama I was immediately put at ease by the friendly personality of Sue, the front desk attendant. 2. By the second class, everyone knew my name. - The first week, all the instructors and many of my fellow students knew my name. I would walk in and people would say “Hi, Rachael!” And I would say “hi” and think to myself “whoever you are” because I had not learned all their names yet. ;) When it comes to the classes, we work hard and have fun. In the group class for ages 13+, there is plenty of variety. Boredom is never an issue, because we are always doing something different or doing a variation of a previous drill. Mighty Mites: I do not have any children in this class (I don’t have any children at all.), but I do volunteer as an aide to Master Taningco during this class. What impressed me most about the Mighty Mites class was how much fun Master Taningco has with his students. It is great to hear the student’s laughing at a joke Master Taningco makes and to see there enthusiasm as they enter the building. “Where is Master Taningco?” they often ask. There is no doubt that students admire and love Master Taningco, and Master Taningco feels the same towards them. For parents considering starting your Might Mite (4-6 year old child/children) at TAMA, I highly encourage it. Your child will be welcomed and put at ease immediately. Master Taningco: There is no doubt that Master Taningco possesses a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the world of martial arts. But what I most admire is his patience. Anyone who knows me knows that I ask questions; I will be the first to admit that I don’t understand something. No matter how many times I admit my confusion and ask for help, Master Taningco works with me until I understand the technique. Another mark of a good instructor aside (from patience) is one who knows how and when to praise. Master Taningco is observant of the progress his students makes and does not shy away of complimenting their improvements. A simple word of praise can go a long way. Often times learners (of any subject/discipline) can feel frustrated at what seems to be a lack of progress; we don’t often see the progress we make, and it can be discouraging. But, a simple word from an instructor can boost our confidence and let us know that while we may not see or feel the change, we are definitely making forward progress. In short, I recommend visiting and trying out TAMA. It is a friendly, family-oriented environment with programs for all ages. TAMA offers great instruction in a non-intimidating, always pleasant atmosphere.

Allison is knowledgeable and professional. She is committed to bringing high quality self defense products to women and families and it shows in her attentiveness to detail and presentation. She educates herself about the products so that the consumer can have confidence in what they are purchasing and how to use it. She is also very friendly, easy going and brings positivity to the sometimes frank subject of defending oneself against attacks. I would highly recommend her and her products!
