I wanted to let you know we are very happy with your style of teaching, I am more than impressed! We have tried other schools and we were not very happy (lot of money down the drain) but Cody really likes you and best of all he is learning. You are right he sometimes wants to stay home but once he goes to class he loves it. Thank you
Greetings from Afghanistan! First I want to thank you for all those years of training that has made my life here easier and also made me a better soldier. The terrain here is probably the most rugged on earth. It’s basically all mountains, and with 40 pounds of body armor, and a 40-pound backpack on top of that, getting to the top is no small task—and one always accompanied by injuries, dehydration, and heat exhaustion. I’m happy to say that I’ve been on many missions out in these mountains and never held up the mission due to injury or exhaustion. But I have at times taken on extra weight when others couldn’t handle it, and have helped carry Soldiers and Marines to the medical evacuation helicopter when they could no longer go on. I have kept in the best shape possible, time permitting, but I will always attribute my endurance to my 9 years of training with you Sensei, and everyone I’ve trained with at Koei Kan Karate Do.
I trained in other styles and boxed for many years. None of that training stacks up to the rigorous training provided by the Academy of Loei-Kan Karate-Do. By varying our training I have learned how to fight on my feet and on the ground. I can punch, kick, grapple, and throw. The pure nature of the combative portion of our training has been enlightening.

Although I don’t regret the choices that I made for physical activity before Karate in my life, I often wonder what levels of physical conditioning that I could have attained had I started Karate earlier in life.

There are numerous martial arts school out there, and many will teach you how to fight. Very few, however, teach you how to be a warrior. That is what distinguishes Koei-Kan from so many others! It is a complete, traditional system that is effective for self- defense — as opposed to competion — and the teaching methods instill a mindset that not only foster confidence, but refuse to accept failure…

I joined the Koei-Kan Karate-do Academy after I met Sensei Mason. I knew after the introduction that this was the school for me. It looked tough. Sensei was tough and told me it would be. Its turned out to be the best thing I’ve ever done for myself…
Personalized Training. Closest thing to your own personal trainer…
I needed to find someone who would help build self-esteem in both my girls as well as teach them to protect themselves. Sensei Mason made me feel that it was just as impotant to him as it was to me. I was very impressed with the enthusiasm of Sensei Mason and Sempai Bernard. The way they instruct and work with children as well as the way they conduct their classes.
I was impressed with the amount of individual attention and emphasis on technical detail I received during my first instruction. These things in combination had me hooked.

I selected the Academy of Koei-Kan Karate-Do because it apeared to offer a serious combat training situation that would motivate me to pursue increased physical conditioning. The Academy has exceeded my expections and I cannot imagine why one would train at any other school.
