The Martial Instinct Self Defense Reviews

Adult Martial Arts near Hopedale

My son has attended the Tiny Tigers program at TMI for about a year, and its been a wonderful experience. The gym is clean with well kept equipment, and Ron's instruction is fantastic. He engages the children, and he has a great way of keeping them focused and disciplined. The class is fun while also maintaining the integrity of the program. Students earn their belts, they aren't handed out for participation. Skills are truly learned and fine-tuned. My husband has also attended the adult BJJ class on Friday night - another great class. We highly recommend TMI!

By far the best martial arts experience I have had. The instructor Ron is very accommodating and helpful. He takes the time to make sure you understand all of the techniques and gives you good ways to remember them. Would reccomend this school for anyone who wants to learn Hapkido.

I looked at several martial arts schools before choosing TMI for my daughter.  I was impressed with the combination of traditional martial arts principles and effective self-defense.  TMI teaches a total package of strikes, kicks, blocks, joint locks, and throws.  The training in rolls, falls and grappling is second to none.  My daughter loves it!  And I could not be happier with what she’s learning.

In Hapkido, Katie is learning how to defend herself against strikes, holds and even multiple attackers.  Most importantly, she’s learning how to be aware of, and avoid, dangerous situations.  In the last several months, I’ve seen her confidence grow by leaps and bounds.  I know that the challenging but supportive teachers at TMI are the reason.

Since my daughter joined TMI, she is stronger, more physically fit and more confident.  She's learned to concentrate better under pressure, to push herself physically when she's tired, and to respect herself through her achievements. I could not be happier with how the teachers at TMI are helping her understand what confident self-respect is.  And I can't think of a more important lesson for her to learn as she heads into her teenage years.

The teachers at TMI are excellent martial artists, first rate educators, and are deeply involved in the community.  They are parents themselves so they understand our hopes and concerns for Katie.  As teachers, they strike just the right balance between being supportive and pushing their students to discover what they are capable of.

Clean & Friendly.  I have tried other martial arts studios for my kids and TMI is by far the best I've come across.  The kids are not handed out new belts every other week to keep them happy, they actually have to earn them!  Isn't that what it's suppose to be??  The instructors are well qualified and are wonderful with the kids.  Not only do they instruct proper technique, but they also mix respect for the art with FUN!  I also love how practical Hapkido is, the kids (and adults) are learning ways to protect themselves!  A great facility for anyone interested in learning a martial art!
