Brian is a really good teacher, making sure that lessons are catered to our needs. He makes sure the exercises we do are specific to certain muscles that we need to strengthen. Whenever there is a water break or when we stretch at the end of each class, he teaches us a lot about nutrition, what we should and shouldn't eat, and when the best time to eat is. Each kickboxing class is enjoyable and we learn a lot without getting overwhelmed.
I could not have found a better boxing or martial arts gym in the entire Metro area. My boxing instructor, Frank Sheppard, is an excellent, helpful, patient teacher who knows exactly what he is doing. The other martial arts classes also look like they are run by highly knowledgeable professionals. I rate Bowerhouse Academy as outstanding.
FALCON is ABSOLUTELY above and beyond the usual security training. Instructors combine practical applications with real-world experiences. Training was thorough and tailored to individual learning styles. Courses focus on real scenarios and best security practices. Basic through advanced classes offered for every level.
I came to Brian in January of 2015. I have struggled with my weight, self image, and self confidence my entire life. At 42 years old, 5 foot 7, and 276 pounds I was desperately out of shape, weak, and in need of guidance. Every attempt I'd made in my adult life to lose weight and keep it off was miserable failure. I'd gained and lost hundreds of pounds. If you can think of a fitness gimmick, I've tried it. NutriSystem, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Beach Body, Herbalife, all of them! None worked long term. Today, 5 months after starting with Brian I have lost 30 pounds, gotten incredibly stronger in all measurable ways, lost 6 inches off my waist, and I feel amazing! Brian teaches you that the key to long term success is to build strength to support your bodies efforts to be lean and fit. He doesn't promise any quick fixes or miracle cures. It is dedication and hard work that get you to your goals. Every session is packed from start to finish with exercises that keep me moving, burning fat, and gaining strength! No excuses, no escapes...you come to him to get results and he will give those to you as long as you put in the work! For the first time in my life I'm excited about my body, the way it is transforming and the changes I can see in myself every single week. Do yourself a favor...if you need help to get to the fitness level you want, then call Brian...talk to him, meet him for a workout and see what can happen with experienced guidance at your side! The results will amaze you...they do me! --Donno Cole Fairfax, VA
Jim is a true expert in his craft. His classes teach children not just about defense, but about respect. For others as well as themselves. I highly recommend Double Edge Defenae for anyone looking to learn, have fun, and be a part of something very special.
I know Alex for couple years as a talented and skilled martial arts professional and also a great fitness instructor. Both self and my son are trained by him at Master Lee's Martial Arts Taekwondo school of Sterling,VA. We are very happy we met him so he explained and helped a lot to be well-trained and feel much better about many things. He always provides easy to follow techniques with related explanations, advises and hand-on demonstratoinons. Greatly recommended! Outstanding instructor/professional!
Each participant gets personal attention from the instructors. Small class sizes, and sessions are available throughout the day. Above all their price is more than reasonable.
I've been training with Julien about two years now. It began as an at home training experience, and sometimes we would meet at the gym and do some weight training. Many times we worked out at a local park. I've enjoyed working out with Julien because of the sometimes unorthodox exercises that he would do. I lost a lot of weight working with him, and increased my 5k race pace. I enjoy that he draws inspiration from many disciplines such as yoga, meditation, martial arts, weight training, parkour, etc. I think if he had his own gym in a centrally located place it would be awesome. In his gym, he could have jungle-gym inspired equipment in addition to weight training equipment, so we could have a gym (indoors) that would support his style of training. As he grows, perhaps this is what will happen one day :)
Katie is an excellent Dance Instructor. She can access the students experience and capabilities and taylor the instruction to their level whether is be in an individualized or group class.
Instructor Brian has taught many classes I have attended for Taekwondo over the years. He is able to keep children in line but also still having fun with a mix of his commanding presence yet kind when needed teaching method. Like myself, I appreciate the high standards he sets with his own flexibility, strength, and skill level as an inspiration to his students to become the best martial artists they can be.
The atmosphere was very flexible and comfortable. The course is designed to meet the needs of the students, and the instructor is always adapting to the needs of each student. You can freely ask question, practice what you want, and ask for help when you need it.
I am in my 40s and wanted to learn martial arts and get into shape. I tried several traditional martial arts schools without learning much. At one place, the white belts (beginners) were an afterthought for the instructors. I took a few more trial lessons at other schools. I found myself training with young children. Nothing against kids but I wanted realistic self defense skills which are not developed against 9 year olds. At the last school, I was immersed in boot camp training (did a bazillion push-ups, bear crawls, jumping jacks, etc. etc.) Karate skills took a back seat to the workout. This kind of training is fine if that is what you are looking for, but I wanted to learn practical martial arts skills without having a drill instructor yelling at me. I have had several lessons with Jordon now, and I can tell you they have been well worth it. I learn more during a 1 hour lesson than I did in several weeks at the martial arts schools I went to. Jordon is positive and encouraging, and is mindful of the physical limitations that I have (arthritis). He teaches Shorin-Ryu Karate which is not flashy but is all about practical and effective self defense. I am also getting into shape gradually at a pace my body can take. I highly recommend Jordon.
We offer a system of self-defense that will give you the confidence to stand up for yourself and defend yourself if needed. In our experience, more confidence actually leads to fewer fights because you will no longer be seen as a target. An intense class can not only burn up to 800 calories, but will strengthen muscles and increase flexibility at the same time. It is a fun environment to get in the best shape of your life and learn self-defense.
