I recently moved to West Chester, PA from California and wanted to find a reputable place to learn tai chi and wing chun. I gave Sigung Smith's school a try and was instantly hooked. I drive 30 minutes each way to attend his classes and it's well worth it. He is welcoming and meets all students at their personal skill level. He takes great care to work with each student individually to help them develop their skills at their own pace. He is a true master of the arts and always willing to answer any questions. He fosters a supportive environment which makes learning not only easier, but a ton of fun! The lessons are not simply going over the movements, but also the history, the application, the benefits, and the original language. Sigung Smith truly loves what he does and always goes above and beyond what one would expect. He is not only an amazing practitioner of martial arts, but a fantastic teacher as well. There are a lot of great practitioners of martial arts in this world, but if you have the opportunity to learn from Sigung Smith, don't hesitate.

Master Brian has done an amazing job with my daugter(age7). She has progressed well and enjoys the way classes are held. He not only works on their physical skills, but constantly preaches courtesy, integrity, self control, perserverance, and indomitable spirit!

I have been attending James' Charm City Karate School (Adult classes) for over two years. James is very warm and welcoming, and made me feel comfortable and confident with learning something new and challenging. James is a skilled instructor, gives one-on-one time, is prepared for and enthusiastic for every class and belt test, and offers multiple methods of learning, including written instruction and terrific and very helpful YouTube videos of every technique for every belt level.

Sifu Dale runs a top-notch school; I say this from 32 years of experience in karate, kung fu, aikido, MMA, and sword. If all you want is cardio and one-steps, look elsewhere; if you want serious training for serious results, leaern from the guy who has taught empty-hand to FBI agents and Navy SEALS.

My son started training with Sensei Elliott in the club's previous location at the West Chester Y in April, 2009. After a few months, at Sensei Elliott's suggestion, I joined my son for a 3 month trial - even though I'd had no previous experience with martial arts. My son and I have both enjoyed training enough that we are still training almost 4 years later. Sensei Elliott has more than 30 years of karate experience and is very patient with the students - especially the kids. The assistant instructors are also very skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced. We don't focus much on competition, but the level of skill that can be attained here is demonstrated by the fact that several students were national champions and highly ranked competitors in last year's ISKF national tournament (and previous years, too!). In addition to karate excellence, Sensei Elliott's focus on family is also a big attraction. He trains with his own family and also encourages other parents, children, and siblings to train together. The kids also enjoy other occasional non-karate activities such as "fun days", holiday parties, and movie nights. Finally, the six day per week class schedule is tremendously convenient for people with a busy schedule. We can train as many or as few days as we like and it's easy to fit a few workouts in, even with my busy work schedule and my son's other activities. Short of hiring a personal instructor, I seriously doubt if you can find this degree of scheduling flexibility anywhere else in the area.

    Magnus Karate is an excellent place to learn martial arts. I have known Master Pannulla, Mike, for many years and he is a man of great character and ethics. This is his passion, and he is wonderful as an instructor with children and adults of all ages. Teaching not only the martial art of Tang Soo Do, students come away with so much more. Confidence, discipline, and a determination to work hard not just in karate but school/work and other activities. Mike strives to make sure his students understand karate is to be used for the right reason - self defense only. In my mind there is no downside to martial arts practice. Students become stronger mentally and physically, becoming healthier individuals. As a result, students are prepared to meet the challenges of today's world head on, more so than if they weren't studying at Magnus. I'm honored not just to be a friend of Mike's and to write this review, but honored to be a student of his myself. I am just as passionate about training under Master Pannulla as he is instructing me and his other students. I highly recommend coming in and seeing what Magnus Karate is all about; it'll change your life in a most positive way. Best wishes, Jason M. Devon, PA
