    My boyfriend and I joined here last year. He and I were always interested in learning self defense. As a woman it is extremely empowering to see women in the advanced class who can spar with a man and tap them out! It truly is a woman’s best chance at defending herself. The instructors have been very encouraging and helpful. Lots of personal attention and friendly people.

    Great place to learn self defense for all levels. The atmosphere is one of teamwork, camaraderie and just a real sense of fun and growth. If you want to learn self defense in a controlled environment where you don’t have to be worried about reckless students or getting hurt this is the place.

    Without a doubt the best martial arts school I have ever been to. It's an amazing way to get in shape. I found this place through online searches for self defense training and they had the best reputation. I was so nervous for my first class and must have sat in the parking lot for at least 15 min lol. I was really worried about a bunch of muscle heads or tough guys looking to let out their aggression on the new guy. It couldn’t be farther from the truth. I was greeted within 10 seconds of walking in by friendly students. The staff answered all my questions. I had the best workout I’ve ever had. Much better than going to the gym where I was bored out of my mind. This place really does deserve the reviews that you see online. I highly recommend it if you want to learn self defense.
