I've been going to UDC for 2 years and I. Love. It. I participate in the Urban Defense Martial Arts program which teaches self-defense for real-life and street situations. So you learn practical moves while getting a kick-ass workout. Anyone who wants to learn real techniques to protect yourself (this is Philly, after all), have a ton of fun, and have a great workout with an amazing teacher who actually knows what he's talking about (Master Whitaker), this is absolutely the place to go!

As an alumni of Penn State Karate Club- University Park, the Philadelphia Region group brings together all the great things about the original in a more convenient package. Our classes are small, so each student can get individual attention and everyone can work at his or her own pace. This is a class for anyone who wants to kick their fitness into a whole new gear- so if you are really interested in getting into even better shape, this is the place for you. Likewise, if you aren't in great shape, and are looking for a sport you can practice for the rest of your life, this is also a great place. I'm in the latter group, and I can attest that these classes are rigorous, but the senseis will be there to help you every step of the way. Lastly, if you are interested in neither getting or staying in shape, but are feeling uneasy in the city, then we are the place to be for self-defense training. You can learn moves that even the weakest person (myself!) can perform accurately on much stronger people so that when the time comes, you can defend yourself in any situation.

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

Sharon's F.L.A.G. seminar has impacted my life dramatically. I never thought anything dangerous could happen to me, but when put in the situation I had come to realize I wouldn't know what to do. With this program, I have learned some basic self defense that could save my life that I will not soon forget!
