“Thomas is very skilled. His classes are exhausting but exhilarating. His striking classes have really helped me with stance movement and advancing strikes as well as coordination.” 

“I love Thomas’ striking classes. He really drives home the points of being relaxed and how to punch from that position. Before and after class Thomas tries to greet everyone by name and/or tell them “good job,” or “great class.” He does a lot to make you feel welcome.” 

“Thomas has a way with language. Sometimes words can translate poorly to physical activity, but Thomas makes hard combinations and concepts digestible to beginners. He always has some lyrical explanation for hard combos that make even us creative types able to compete.”

“Thomas is great with checking form. In particular, he has helped me with my footwork, which took a bit of work for me to get down. But with his upbeat encouragement, I soon started to get the hang of it. I also appreciate that Thomas stresses warming up before we work on kicks. It helps prevent my lower back and hips from getting tense, allowing me to get the workout I want and need!”

“Thomas gives great detail, maintains a calm atmosphere, and allows you to really focus on the details of your technique. He’s also very encouraging.”

“Thomas was my very first instructor, and needless to say I signed up immediately after taking his class. Over the years I’ve had the privilege to learn from him, and he makes it so easy with his positive attitude and ability to motivate his students to become better fighters.”

“Thomas really explains how your body should move and what it feels like when learning a new technique. This is extremely helpful for newer students who don’t have the muscle memory yet.”
