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.

Sean is the perfect personal trainer. He listens to you and your body. I feel healthier and have more self confidence after training. I can't say enough good things about Sean.

I have been training with Coach Tate for close to 3 years now! It was by chance that I had my first personal training session with him, and now there is no one else I will ever work with. It's amazing the amount of knowledge, skill & patience this man has! Whether you are looking to fight, just stay physical active or looking for self defense techniques, there is no better place to go. Stop looking. You've found the right person! Something for everyone, at all levels.

Some friends and I decided to host a self defense class for a girls night activity and we are so glad we hired Allison Moore at Protect Priorities. She and her husband were incredibly professional and knowledgeable, and went above and beyond by meeting us at our place at our time, pretty much on the fly. We are looking forward to hiring her again in the future for a mother/daughter class. She is both super sweet and super tough and we definitely learned a lot!
