I requested an unusual job from Michael at Main Street Martial Arts Self Defense school. Because my request was so specific and unusual, it didn’t seem like he would be able to help. The only other class in the area won’t meet for two months. . Michael creatively found a way to give me what I wanted: he customized his class to accommodate my wife and me. He fit us in right away. He and his assistant instructor both personally worked with my wife and me to practice the techniques and ensure we understood them. Michael gave me the realistic advice that its an experienced fighter who will be able to competently defend herself. With that caveat, he taught us three techniques which gave my wife and I what we were looking for: a brief introduction, useful knowledge, and a insight into how beneficial it is to have a general competence in self-defense techniques. He taught us and the rest of the students in his class in an affable way, making the serious learning fun.. Michael was reasonably priced and provided us with a great experience. I would recommend him and Main Street School.

I think Infinity is a great place to work out because it is so warm and inviting. You never feel self conscious or uncomfortable around the other guests. The staff are the best you will find anywhere and they truly care about you personally and will do all they can to help you accomplish your fitness goals.

Nicks teaching is hands down unbeatable. His attention to detail is what makes his self defense skills, as good as they are. If you are beginner or advanced person he can tailor his teaching skills to fit anyone with any issue... I highly recommend nick to any one who needs self defense.....

Tom Bruno came out to our company to give a class on self defense. He was extremely knowledgeable and has the ability to connect with people on all levels. He made it very interactive while training and teaching valuable lessons in self defense. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have a corporate training to even a smaller class.

I have studied with Eric for several years. He has a deep understanding of martial arts and is a seasoned and nurturing teacher who meets each student according to their interests and skill level. The American Ketsugo Jujitsu Club is a welcoming environment for students of any level to learn an effective self-defense system while have fun. Classes are small and allow for plenty of personalized attention. If you have any interest you should drop by and give it a try!

Regional Instructor Ben, and the New England wide instructor team, are true devotees to their craft of self-development and simultaneously incredibly attentive and careful teachers of new students like myself. I joined Oom Yung Doe because I needed a practice that grew my inner life through my physical strength, not one or the other. I was a competitive hockey player for fifteen years and nothing has changed my attitude, strengthened my mind, and stimulated me to life so much as my new practice with OYD.

We had major issues with sales and cash flow. Mach Growth discovered we had product and quality problems that were not being filtered back to us.

My child has been at the Academy for 2 years now. It is amazing what they have done for his self confidence and self esteem. He has done better in school and his teachers are thrilled. He has also learned to be street smart and how to protect himself. In today's society that is so important. The professional level of instruction there is top notch. Thank-You Sensei Kevin and the entire staff

I assisted Kristin as a demonstrator in several of her news interviews, showing the public how some of her defensive tactics could be used against an aggressor. It is important to have a plan in place to respond in the event you are ever targeted by an aggressor, but more importantly there are proactive components to her training that could alter the way an aggressor will perceive you. Either way, whether this training will alter the aggressor's decision to target you in the first place, or whether it puts you in a better position to respond, the way I see it you just can't lose by taking the training.

"The Christian Karate Ministry" is a non-violent self defense training Ministry. This is a combination of my training and teaching experience as a martial artist, as well as what the scriptures mean for my life. Since Karate is a part of my life, I can relate what I know in Scripture to my martial arts development.

About

At Emerald Necklace Martial Arts, we embrace martial arts training as a way of life, and teaching effective self-defense techniques is only a part of what we do. Our primary goal is to introduce our members to the philosophies that permeate the martial arts, and to show people how to apply these principles to their everyday lives -- outside of our school and in ways that have very little to do with blocking, kicking, and punching. This, we believe, is the ultimate form of self-defense. Sensei Jason Gould provides traditional martial arts instruction to dojo members, and he is available for consultations and private personal safety and self-defense seminars with individuals and groups.

About
