Surprised Student Finds Tai Kai Staff and Students Friendly and Easy to Work With:

Syracuse mixed martial arts school testimonial

“I am very happy with my membership and training. I have been most impressed by the people there and how friendly, helpful and approachable everyone is. And this goes from the top down and includes instructors as well as other class members.

Having no prior martial arts training, I was a little concerned when my boyfriend convinced me to join that there would be a lot of hard core, militant types in the class that would be intimidating to a small woman like me.

On the contrary, I’ve found everyone to be friendly and approachable and easy to work with. I am sure that attitude is instilled from the top down (meaning you) because your class members want to emulate you.

So they take cues from you and when they see that you are respectful of everyone and friendly and approachable in your training style, they act the same way.

So Ken, please don’t change a thing about that…because I continue to be impressed every class by how wonderful the people are!”

“I am not easily impressed, but Tai-Kai Jiu-Jitsu really impresses me!”

Mixed martial arts school testimonial Syracuse NY“As someone who has been training in the martial arts for 15 years under a variety of styles and instructors, I am not easily impressed, but Tai-Kai Jiujitsu really impresses me!

While training under there for the past 7 years, I have evolved as a martial artist much more than all of my previous experience combined. I studied Tae-Kwon Do and later Gracie Jiu-Jitsu at the Gracie academy… Tai-Kai’s approach to Jiu-Jitsu is concise, pragmatic and VERY effective.

I was very hesitant years ago because of my age and the fact that I own and run a successful business.. None of this has interfered with my growth in Jiu-Jitsu. This is THE place to train, and THE people to do it with. In me, Tai-Kai has a student for life!”

At our school, your safety and progress are the first priority. When you start classes at Tai Kai, you’ll be learning effective self-defense techniques under the supervision of an expert instructor. So, you’ll know you’re learning proper technique… that means you can train with intensity while still keeping things fun.

Whether your goal is just to have a good time while you learn self-defense, or to become a champion competitor, we’ll help you get there. Rest assured, I’ll coach and encourage you while you achieve your goals, every step of the way.

MMA Contender Explains Why He Drives From Central New York 5x a Week to Train at Tai Kai:

“Tai Kai Jiu-Jitsu is    beyond a shadow of a doubt the best martial arts school in Central New York. I live over an hour away, but I make sure to make the drive five times per week because the training I get there is second to none. I credit my success in my professional MMA fights to the training I get at Tai-Kai Jiu-Jitsu . They have the best instructors/trainers around, and without them I would not be 5-0 and fighting in Bellator. Not only do you get excellent instruction, but you will also get into the best shape of your life. Whether you are a professional fighter or just an average Joe looking for self defense or a good workout, Tai-Kai Jiu-Jitsu is the place to go.”
