"I've gotten in much better shape. In addition to the regular classes, there have been numerous other opportunities. e.g. fit 2 fight, fight team, private lessons, seminars, boot camp. I've actually maintained a commitment to training. I think this is due in large part to the motivation provided by the staff. Also, you are continually coming up with something new and different, so it doesn't seem to get old. The school seems to facilitate a lot of camaraderie, which I think also helps to motivate me to continue coming. I think that I have really gotten a lot out of private lessons. When I first started, I wondered whether I was really getting that much out of it, but I have seen a dramatic improvement in all aspects of my training, from preparation for belt/stripe testing, to endurance. I think that fit2fight would have been a lot harder if I hadn't already been doing the belt combos in my private lessons. It's amazing the difference that just one day a week has made." -Adam Herrmann.
"I want to extend a big heartfelt thanks to Guro Larry St Clair and Jamie Lyn from Martial Way Academy for all their encouragement and support while I was recovering from my MCL injury. My big fear was that the injury would sideline me for months, and that the active lifestyle I recently recovered would wilt and die before taking root. You both spent so much time and put so much thought into getting me stronger. Your support carried me through the disappointment and frustration with my knee, and you got me excited about getting a stronger upper body. I have never had such strong arms, and I'm so excited about it! I feel so lucky to be part of the Martial Way family. Thank you so much for everything you do!" -Anne F.
"Honestly, I think that was my favorite class since I've been at martial way. I'm super pumped right now, getting to work with people from different backgrounds was fantastic, it seems like this school breeds character, I've never met a single person whom I don't have the utmost respect for and feel comfortable with - that's not true of every martial arts school by any means. I love how all of us work as a team and learn from each other and everyone is so humble and willing to share any knowledge they have. Plus, getting to spar with Larry AND getting my yellow belt, AWESOME!" -Andrew
"Stepping foot into Martial Way Academy is not simply about working out and learning martial arts. You may have come for one particular reason in mind (fitness, self defense, something to do with a friend, etc) but after a few classes you''ll soon find yourself coming back for much more. The reason? The Martial Way experience is all encompassing. Fun. Welcoming. A good sweat. Challenging both mentally and physically. Once your part of the "family," you''re always treated as a member of the family." -Rachel Larcom
