Elin designed a creative program to help my 9 year old son prepare for his martial arts tournaments. My son definitely made improvements in his strength, agility and stamina. Elin was also able to fine tune his kicking and blocking skills since he has experience in various self defense/fighting skills. Elin is quick to respond to emails/text/calls and has tremendous knowledge in the art of exercise, bodybuilding and nutrition. I highly recommend Elin and his team for anyone looking for a professional personal trainer.

I took 10 self-defense classes with Anthony and it was an amazing learning experience and workout. He took the time to make sure all our techniques were solid and then built on that, regardless of skill level. He let the class run away with the fun occasionally but other than that, his classes were everything I was hoping for.

A friend has advised me to take self-defense training, not a typical self defense course, a special training made by Falcon. I thought that he was joking, that’s been the true: a training give by an Israeli school security expert thought outdoors in real places. I did a special training, very special. I never found and did in my entire life nothing like that. Falcon was patient and constant to take me to be independent for my personal security. I learn a lot important interesting things. With Falcon‘s school I did an articulate training, taking care of all the technical, psychological, physical and behavioral aspects. Falcon is a high level security professional even if he doesn’t want to show it. His reserved behavior is synonym of guaranty, professionalism and importance. I have to be sincere, this training was really exhausting but I don’t regretet it.

The small class sizes were really nice to get individual instruction, and Brian always had a helpful answer for any question I'd ask! It was also useful to get a list of self defense items and talk about general street safety.

I have trained with and known Master Johnson for over 40 years. He is like a part of our family. We met many years ago at a martial arts tournament in Virginia Beach, VA . I was competing as a green belt and Master Johnson a black belt. He took an interest in me and started advising me. I finished second, my first green belt trophy. We have been friends every since. I have attended his pressure point seminars with my brother and friends. We all learned new techniques that are very useful in defending ones self. I recommend Master Johnson to anyone wishing to learn self defense. Chief Darryl C. Smith, Sr. (Retired) Purcellville VA Police.

He tailors the workout routing base on you strength and ability than progress as your health improves. I'm grateful to have him as a trainer and I'm sure you will be also.

This is not a typical self-defense class. This is a re-training of my mind to better understand the physical forces at work, so I can then retrain my body to respond in a most efficient way. I am already feeling more empowered and in charge of my body. This is flowing over to my mind as I begin to take more control over decisions I make and relationships I am in. This is a self-defense class for my entire being- not just my body.
