    Michael was really great! I had a very fun and effective workout with him and I feel that he taught me a lot. I would highly recommend him - he has a great energy and tons of knowledge!

    Michael Ha Is the best at what he does and it is an honor to train under him. He creates an environment where his students feel safe and supported. Whether you come in as a beginner or with more experience, he will get you to the next level. His technique demonstrations are clearly communicated and easy to follow. I have primarily trained Muay Thai under him.

    I had an amazing experience with Michael. I’ve worked with him in both JKD and Muay Thai. He always pushes his students to their full potential. He’s a stickler for technique and understands that without proper technique, it doesn’t matter how strong you are. With that being said, I always feel like I get an AMAZING workout with Michael and have never felt stronger or more toned.

    Sifu Michael is great. Very patient and works with all, no matter what skill level.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to find out the student's goals, past/current level of experience (if any), and health/injury history so I can best assess if I can offer him/her what he/she's looking for. My first lesson is always FREE, so we can meet, do some training, and we can go from there if it seems like a good fit.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I usually have a sliding scale, depending on whether it's a group or private/semi-private lesson, whether I'm driving to them or they are driving to/near me. I don't do contracts or memberships, but similar to what a lot of yoga studios do, if you buy more lessons up front, then the lower the rate per lesson will be.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with all kinds of students, from seasoned martial artists (Black Belt level or equivalent), to newbies who've never taken one martial arts class ever but are looking to start. My students have also varied in age from 6-year olds to 72 year-olds, and from marathon runners to sedentary individuals looking to get in shape for the first time.
