I appreciate Sifu Andre for his knowledge, positive energy, and passion for teaching. He genuinely wants to help you learn. That being said, I would never ever ever want to be the bad guy who gets into a confrontation with him… Andre is what you might call “resourceful.”
I’ve done JKD / Kali classes and training sessions with Andre. For me, it’s a fun way to work on coordination / reaction time and build memory.
Although I came in with zero martial arts background, Andre has given me a basic understanding of movements and possibilities should I ever need to react.
Overall, Andre’s classes are a blast, and they’ll fly by like a moment in time. 🙂

Inoshi is an excellent instructor. I look forward to going to the class each week.
I’ve been taking wing Chun with Sifu Marc for more than a year now and he is a great teacher! He makes sure you understand why the technique works and explains the philosophy and physicality behind it. So he’s not just teaching you moves, he’s actually explaining how it works. Also, he makes sure you’re doing the techniques before moving on to the next lesson, which will assure that you’re doing it the right way and not wasting your time throwing random punches. Best martial arts teacher I’ve ever had.

Charles is an amazing trainer, he knows the intricacies of the musculoskeletal system and how it coordinates with different exercises with different weights. He’s not a trainer that will leave you to your own devices and give you an exercise to do and that’s it. Charles takes the time and the focus to place it on your through every rep and movement, he guides you on the focusing of the particular muscle being worked to achieve the highest quality of work done.
The first thing I love about working with Drew is that he’s super patient. I don’t feel like he ever gets frustrated with me during our training sessions being that I’m a newbie. I also love that he challenges me and pushes me and I always end the session feeling like I’ve grown a little and learned something new. He’s helping me to build confidence in my technique, I can see my growth, and always feel like I get a great workout. I feel like I get challenged physically and mentally working with Drew . He’s also an all around good guy . I’ll definitely be training with him for the long haul as I know that my time and money are going to the kind of workouts you get results from.
Chris Reyman is a world class instructor that has been training/teaching for over 20 years. His knowledge of jiu jitsu and the overall fight game is unmatched and I could not recommend this academy more. Coach Reyman has the ability to break down even the most complex moves and teach them in a clear and understandable manner. His instruction is always thorough and all questions are answered patiently with tremendous detail. Overall I cant say enough good things about East Side and I am truley excited each time I train.
