What I like about the class are the self defense techniques which makes me feel like I can protect myself and protect the people around me. I also like the exercise because before I had nothing to motivate me to exercise and this class is really helping”….. Zoe (Krav Maga)


“I am very happy with the Muay Thai class. My kids like it a lot. They are coming along at a pace that they really enjoy a lot and are learning a lot. “………..Bryan (Kid’s Kickboxing)

“There’s nothing I don’t like about the Krav Maga class. I like that Thursday class is more technical and Saturdays its more of a workout. I feel that it’s a good balance.”……..Bryan (Krav Maga)

“The reason why I love this class so much is because I’ve also wanted to take martial arts class. As a kid I’ve have been bullied a couple of times and this class really helps me.  There is nothing I don’t like about this class and everything in this class is very essential and it’s a big part of my life right now………..Stephanie (Krav Maga)

“The best part of the class is that I never realized how much I can really do. I’m not exactly physically fit but this class motivates me to be better..I never thought I was strong enough or fast enough and the class motivates me to always do better. I would likie to get my black belt and go to the Krav Maga camps……Christine (Krav Maga)

“What I like about the class is that it’s very realistic and I’ve done a lot of other martial arts in my life but this is very down to earth and actually learn to defend myself and the people I love…………Thomas (Krav Maga)


“What I like about the class is that it’s great exercise and I love that my kid comes with me.  After every class I’m glad I came here……….Ralph (Krav Maga and Kid’s Kickboxing)

“All of the students were welcoming and gave me all the instruction and words of encouragement that I needed. After the first class, I was hooked! I knew I had found my new hobby and my new outlet, not to mention my new journey to get fit and healthy,” 

"In the past seven months her life has changed drastically, she feels more energetic and focused in her day-to-day life, she is more fit and extremely happy. Kickboxing has built her strength, coordination, balance and skill. “I have a group of people that I enjoy training with every week without fear of judgement from any of them. Everyone here is positive and all about building each other up. Kru is an amazing leader and genuinely cares about his students. He has a way of teaching discipline without belittling anyone or making anyone feel bad about themselves,” ... ... ...Kaitlyn (Muay Thai)

“Kru has a special ability to teach, not only the art of Muay Thai, but also discipline and respect. I am looking forward to learning more from him and progressing in all aspects,”... ... ... James (Muay Thai)

“I walked into the studio, afraid after a serious assault of how I would react to a self-defense class that is known for ruthless methods (Krav). From the second I walked into the studio and met Kru, how passionate, welcoming and knowledgeable he was, it immediately disarmed me. Meeting the classmates was the same energy". Taking Krav has helped me face my fears and trauma head on in a way that nothing else could. I will forever be grateful for this" . Regarding my 5 year old daughter... “Not only does she love it, but her whole demeanor has changed, she is more patient, attentive and understanding of boundaries. And she has a great time learning with Kru,”... ... ... Morgan (Krav Maga & Kid's Kickboxing)

Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They take pride in keeping the dojo clean and stocked. I highly recommend. - Thomas W


Joined about a month ago. Teaching is great. Instructors do an excellent job at explaining techniques, and helping you understand. Great staff, and amazing atmosphere. Even with no prior experience it feels like your right at home with family as they cheer you on. Highly recommended for anyone wanting self defense, or to get in shape. - Page W
