I absolutely love my self defense classes with Ken! What i find most helpful is that Ken's lessons are very personalized. I am a petite woman and Ken teaches me how to use my size to my advantage. I went to about a dozen gyms all over Houston (MMA/Krav Maga/Jiu Jitsu/etc) and Ken is the only person that could offer me everything that i needed/wanted. (1) He works around my crazy schedule (2) Personalized training that is AFFORDABLE (3) Preparing me not just physically, but also mentally (4) Providing me personalized techniques - example: there is a technique he showed me to free yourself from someone that is choking you, unfortunately my arms just wouldn't reach. He realized this almost immediately and changed the technique right then and there. Within 5 minutes we had a modified move and i was breaking choke holds. (5) Real world application - example: he teaches body language, so you can better assess when an attack is coming. I told him a get nervous walking to my car, he taught me how to use my keys as a weapon! How to defend myself in a small area (like if someone comes up to me in between 2 cars). (6) Gets you out of your comfort zone - I have never hit a person and didn't realize how uncomfortable it would be to do so. I felt silly and weak throwing a punch. Literally by the second class all of those feelings were gone. I've only been training for about a month and my punches are awesome! You can literally see the strength i've gained in such a short amount of time. I feel like this post is getting long, but seriously i cannot stress how great these lessons are. I genuinely think anyone would benefit from these lessons. Its not only a great work out (you will be sore) but its also a great confidence booster. I feel so much safer just doing things that would normally have me worried (ex: walking to my car at night when i work late/late night runs to the grocery store). If you are serious about self defense, take his classes. He operates out of a gym that has great people, great environment, and everything you need to train.
Ralph has been my trainer for the past 3+ years and I can honestly say he is AWESOME at what he does. With clients ranging from college students to retirees, Ralph tailors each clients training experience based on their skill and comfort level. To help his clients realize their health/weight loss goals, Ralph is comfortable utilizing a variety of specialties, such as pilates, boxing, self-defense, and jiu-jitsu. He is incredibly FLEXIBLE with training schedules (which is great for people who's work schedule changes frequently). Since working with Ralph I have lost weight, improved my strength, reduce my aches and pains by improving flexibility, and am confident I could use self-defense tactics to get out of a sticky situation. I would highly recommend Ralph as a personal trainer (or for his group classes) to anyone.
Morrison Butler trained me in the arts Of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu , Muay Thai Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts for 3years.Not only did he help me get in to great shape, he also coached me to victory on the mat in many BJJ tournaments well as having my hand raised in my first Mma event.
Loureiro Jiu-Jitsu is an excellent school that teaches the world famous Gracie method. My son and I both attend to Maurino's classes and enjoy every single one. Maurino clearly explains and demonstrates every move with detail and alway stresses saftey. He is a great instructor that cares about every student and will help you learn and improve at your pace.
Johnny is a great instructor! I worked with him for a few months to improve my standup--he's also a brown belt in Judo so that was helpful. He really knows his stuff and was really patient with me. If you're looking to get better at jiu jitsu, or just to get more comfortable with the basics, he's the best in town to learn from.
