Gio Says...

By far one of the best investments I have made in a long time!!!

Marc and the rest of the team are one of Rhode Island's greatest group of people. 

I can't express enough gratitude and appreciation for every member's support and willingness to share their knowledge and investing in my journey.

This is my first time involved in Martial arts and was very much intimated at the prospect of going into a Dojo and being the new guy. 

Since my very first lesson the entire team has exceeded my expectations of working to ensure a smooth integration and transition into having productive sessions.

If you are looking for a friendly place that provides some of the best work outs surrounded by real life Ninjas, look no further! 

Christian Says...

BRSD is the best martial arts school in RI! For anyone intimidated by joining a dojo, this is the place for you!

Sensei Marc and all the instructors are knowledgeable and patient. It's very hands on and you get a lot of personal attention. 

It's a welcoming and friendly place by both the staff and students. 

As someone who had no experience, everyone was very supportive and encouraging from the white belts to black belts. 

After almost two months, I feel confident I can defend myself in most situations and it's great exercise to keep the mind and body healthy. 

The instruction you get from class 1 is 100% practical and very useful. 

Sensei Marc and company remove all the frills to create a fun and effective class curriculum that changes daily so it's never the same class twice. 

Highly recommended for both absolute beginners and higher ranks. 

Would recommend to anyone interested. Thanks BRSD! (edited for spelling only)

Ryan Says...

I've been a student here for about four years. 

The environment is friendly and conducive to learning. It's a very safe and inviting environment. 

Working in child psychiatry, I felt confident in my decision to invite both of my school age children to come in and learn from Sensei Marc and his staff. 

Beyond the actual self defense piece that the children learn, Mr Bochner's curriculum is well thought out and implemented. 

The children learn essential skills in de-escalation and situational awareness, something that can prevent a self defense scenario from taking place. 

I invite anyone that is thinking of training or thinking of having their family train to thoughtfully consider Bochner's Self Defense, they are truly a 5-star dojo! (edited for spelling only)

Megan Says...

Bochner's Realistic Self-Defense is an amazing place to train and to learn. 

From my very first class I knew that this was the perfect place for me. Everyone is friendly and inviting. 

All the instructors are helpful, patient, skilled and bring out the potential in their students. 

As someone who has trained in martial arts for over 15 years I know what an important impact martial arts can have in your life. 

Training at Bochner's can teach you confidence, self-defense and can be a great workout!

Being a student at Bochner's allows you to want to strive to be the best that you can be. 

I would highly recommend Bochner's Realistic Self-Defense to anyone who wants to learn how to defend themselves in a positive and friendly environment! (edited for spelling only)

Alex Says...

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. 

Miss Meghan was my first training partner and she is fantastic and worked me into my first few classes. I also attend classes with Sensei Bethany and Det. Joe, their incredible range of experiences and knowledge has been my foundation of learning now that I've committed to earning my ranks. I recently tested for my yellow/white belt. 

All the instructors/senseis at Bochner's are talented and kind people with your best interest in mind. I would encourage all ages and abilities to attend a seminar or class, and check out the body therapy/kickboxing too!

Sean Says...

The short version...sign up now. Just do it. You will never regret it. 

Alan Says...

As an experienced martial artist, focused on very traditional systems, I wanted to try something different and more practical self defense skills. 

I looked around and tried several different programs. 

I finally decided to give Bochner's Self Defense a try. I have been pleasantly surprised. Sensei Marc Bochner and his team have created a great environment for those with and without previous MA experience. 

The style can best be described as jujitsu. 

Many of his students and instructors have experience in many other systems. This brings a wealth and diversity of skills. 

What I enjoy the most is the support from instructor and students in every class.

I am not interested in belt progression but it is a practical element for actual learning and skill progression. When you get a new belt I can say you have really earned it. 

I would recommend for anyone looking to learn practical self defense skills and willing to work hard and understand it is a long term commitment.

Michelle Says...

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. 

Once my 7 month old is old enough he will be the next ninja in training at Bochner's Realistic Self Defense. I highly recommend this dojo! 😉💪    

Nick Says...

Whether you are looking to train over an extended period of time or just to get a basic understanding of self defense Bochner's Realistic Self-Defense Is the place to go. 

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.
