After a lifetime of training in the martial arts (37 years), and having trained with many of the great masters of this generation. In my Profesional opinion- "Mr Mike is a true master of the arts and one of the most dynamic instructors teaching. His understanding of real world combat and trading concepts rate among the best I have had the honor of training with. Sincerely, Richard Dixon Director Unified Fighting Arts Association Director Unified Fighting Arts Federation Representative and head of Tong Leong organization for Pennsylvania and Delaware states.
I attended 2 seminars/ Circle of Masters events with Mike Andrus as one of the instructors. At these 2 particular events, we had the option to stay or go. Since they were all day long, a friend of mine who had participated in previous events, insisted “we must stay for Master Andrus!” He was right! We thoroughly enjoyed his teaching because it was practical, real and attainable that day. His common sense approach, and undeniable people skills make him a world class teacher. If you have a chance to study with him: Take it! I give you my word as a martial arts practitioner…you will be glad you did. Thanks Sensei Mike for all your help! Sincerely - Matthew Martin and Family
I speak to the student (or parent) to understand exactly what the desired outcome is. It could be to bolster self-esteem, bullying, self-defense, confidence, past bad experiences, PTSD, rape, work place violence, etc. Whatever the circumstances, we take the time understand the dynamic and customize the training in all aspects. From lesson duration to meditation, etc.
