I went to Brian for self-defense lessons. I had no previous experience, but I never felt talked down to or uncomfortable with Brian. His techniques were very practical and real-life applicable, as well as quick to pick up. Brian gave lots of instruction to make sure I understood everything and made the learning process easy. After just a few weeks I already began to feel very capable of defending myself in a wide variety of situations due to Brian's training. I highly recommend Brain, and would definitely go back to him.
They are excellent with children of all ages. I love that they are concerned with the whole body and technique not just going through the motions. The couples self defense class is awesome, we have so much fun.
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, thats 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 Falcons 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 doesnt 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 dont regretet it.
Julien is my personal training. I am extremely happy to have him as a trainer. I have actually lost wait and builded muscle within 3 months and learned some self defense moves. 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 was my first Thumbtack experience so I did not know what to expect. I called Alex and booked an initial meeting for a self defense class. I was so impressed with his knowledge and ability to teach to me (someone with absolutely no experience in self defense) that I hired him immediately. I would recommend him in a minute, I can't explain how much fun each training is while at the same time also getting a tailored workout as well as learning useful and practical skills!!
I've known Garrett for over 8 years. He is well-knowledged in self defense and awareness. Professional, comfortable to train with and has really helped build my confidence. If your looking for a passionate instructor, who has great listening skills, Trainum Martial Arts is the way to go!
Scott is very passionate about teaching women to defend themselves. But he also teaches respect and enhances confidence and self esteem.
Brian did a great job tailoring a self-defense class for my daughter and me. My daughter had only 2 days before moving to New York to take this class, so Brian had to cram as much information and practice into two sessions as he could. He did a great job and both my daughter and I feel more confident about our self-defense capabilities.
I have trained with Tammy for quite some time now. The reason I started was weight loss with the goal of learning a skill at the same time. Weight loss achieved, the skills I have learned have changed my life for the better. My first impression of Tammy was that of a person who clearly knew how to work with people of all ability and mindset. It turns out, the first impression was correct. Her patience is amazing and willingness to help or answer any question is very warming.
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.
