  • “I love the classes!! I just started a few months ago and I wish I could join all classes every day!! (I am 28 btw and thought I was too old for this but never say never! I’ve already learnt a lot!) Master Thai is an excellent teacher, wise, clear and he has been very patient with all of my questions (even the silly ones that I pick up from action movies that I try to cross check with reality). He corrected my form step by step the last three months and I’m super excited for my first real test that’s coming up this month! I would 100% recommend his classes!”

  • “We had both our daughters do a week class here over our vacation and Thomas the owner was very personable and did a great job teaching them the basics of martial arts. If we lived closer I would definitely enroll them at this studio. The studio is spacious and clean. The classes were an hour long and both my girls enjoyed it very much. I also did a kickboxing class and loved it. Thomas is really high energy and outgoing and really helpful with the forms. I really thought Thomas was very attentive with all the students. Recommend this studio!!!! You won't be disappointed!”

  • “My son discovered this place almost 7 years ago. A month later his sister and I joined him and we've all been training here since then. Although my daughter took a break now she's in college, my son and I continue to train here. Master Thai, the owner and most Senior instructor is the best instructor you'll ever want. Your children not only learn self defense but more importantly to respect people in general. They also learn to be self confident and how to become leaders. All Senior Black Belt Instructor are all very helpful; who will gladly work with you one-on-one basis to reach your goal as you move up the ranks. All training is geared toward overall fitness and flexibility. The ultimate goal for training is to make everyone become good citizens in our community. Please check this place out! It will be worth your time and money!”
