"I was a student for about three years before I was stationed to Georgia, YOU WILL NOT FIND TRAINING LIKE THIS ANYWHERE ELSE. The school is afforadble enough that it is possible to train for six days a week. The instructors keep a positive, but intense attitude towards the classes and students. This school is the real deal."

"I'm a sergeant with the County Sheriff's Office, 11 years in. I'm also a tactical team leader, defensive tactics, and firearms instructor. I hope to go federal before long.
I studied under you when you taught out of Buffalo Turners, and your lessons have carried me this far. I was re-evaluating our current CQH2H system, when I wondered if you were still teaching.
Your website looks great.
Although belated, congrats on your sensei status in aikido. I believe you were just venturing in to aikido, when you separated from Buffalo Turners.
As far as your training being useful, that is an understatement. I try to train with a lot of people representing many different systems. Far more often than not someone will ask me if I trained in a Filipino style. I don't know if it's my movements or mentality, but it gets noticed. Honestly, I think the lesson that stuck with me over the years was being flexible between styles. Use what works and be willing to discard what doesn't. What we use in our teams is a combination of Krav Maga, Keysi, Tan soo do & SPEAR. Thanks again for a solid foundation."
