I have trained with Jared for roughly a decade and my experiences with him have been nothing but positive. Jared is able to take complex techniques and concepts and break them down in a way that makes them far easier to understand. Jared’s level of professionalism provides a safe and calm environment which helps cultivate the right mind set to learn and grow. Jared has helped me grow as a martial artist and I would happily recommend him to anyone who was looking to learn self defense from someone who has a practical understanding of several styles. – Danny

Mr. Caldwell was my Jiujitsu instructor for a few classes, and I plan to continue studying with him where my schedule allows. I was little concerned about taking classes because I have proximity issues, and problems with asthma. However Mr. Caldwell had designed his classes in a way that health issues were not a problem. I not only learned about jiujitsu during the classes, but I learned how to incorporate these techniques into self-defense situations I may encounter. Mr. Caldwell is funny, caring, disciplined, and friendly instructor who cares about his students learning/experience in the class. I highly recommend this class to everyone.

I participated in Aquil's specialized class for Women's Personal Protection. I was incredibly happy with the content of the class, exceeding my expectations of what self defense is, and giving us real skills to survive, should we ever find our selves in a vulnerable situation. We covered developing a defensive mindset, escaping an attack that lands you on the ground, how to fight back, and learning your rights and cultivating the "never give up" mindset. After taking this course, I absolutely feel more confident walking the streets on my own if I have to and find I am more aware of my surroundings. If you're considering taking self defense, this is the one to invest your time and money on!

In my opinion, because I have no prior experience, I feel that the teacher was very good from a beginners stand point at teaching the basics and what to do between sessions. He even came to my house on a Sunday because that is the only day/time during the week I have available. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to do self defense/ martial arts classes. He is a master of the art.
