New To Training
Prior to training with Jon I had very little martial arts experience. With each session and new lesson he taught, I gained more confidence in my ability to defend myself. That confidence made positive impacts on many other aspects of my life. During sparring not only did he reinforce lessons, he also challenges you without overwhelming you. It is a great reflection of both his teaching style and his good character.

Not bad for an old guy.
Being a bit older I was a little nervous about giving martial arts a try. When Jon told me that the program is adaptable to anyone regardless of where they are physically when they walk through the door, I was encouraged but still a bit skeptical. Now after training for just a couple months I realize that he was right. I can do this and if I must say I'm not too bad for an old guy.
