I started at Bochner's about 4 months ago after a free self defense seminar.
The atmosphere is welcoming and energetic, and everyone instructing and helping is passionate and skilled.
Sensei Marc is especially adept with managing different skill levels and having everyone feel comfortable and challenged to their individual abilities and goals.
As an experienced martial artist, focused on very traditional systems, I wanted to try something different and more practical self defense skills.
I finally decided to give Bochner's Self Defense a try.
Sensei Marc Bochner and his team have created a great environment for those with and without previous MA experience.
I attended the Empower Mom Self Defense seminar this weekend and it was super fun, and informative.
This was my second time taking a seminar and both times I left feeling like I could protect myself and kick some butt if I needed to.
Everyone is very friendly and welcoming here and there were lots of laughs too.
My husband has been training here consistently for about 8-9 years and he loves it.
He's a pretty badass ninja now, thanks to Marc and the team.
Not only is the staff full of fun, dedicated, and well trained individuals, the students are also.
You are treated like family in this dojo.
Everyone is friendly and it truly is above any other dojo in the world.
The instructors see the potential in every student and encourage you to do things that you didn't think you could do.
The short version...sign up now.
Just do it.
You will never regret it.
