Ever since I was a kid I remember feel inadequate and strange around people... school time was a bad experience for me, constantly been bullied, I had a hard time fitting in, so I’m insulates myself and stop trying to fix my surroundings, martial arts came early in my life, but I wasn’t discipline enough to finish training... after a few trial and tribulations in my life I decide to go back and finish what I had started.
I had developed within the arts and try and training w the best in the business.. explore the cultures along the way, and collect plenty gold medals while in competition... but the best part of it, it’s in the person that I had become... I’m eternally grateful for the journey I took, and honor and privilege to have the ability to share it with everyone around the way.

Great coach, great training every time. Begin training 5 months ago, due to medical issues, and it has made an positive impact in my life. He understand all aspects of training and works towards progress. Thanks Baruk!

Yoga/kickboxing/meditation .. I’ve done all three with Baruk, I’ve tried other yogi classes and they just weren’t the same. He is an awesome instructor and pushes you to do your best. After every class was a meditation and I felt a sense of peace that I’ve never felt before!

Baruk is a great instructor. He's very good at analyzing your strength and weaknesses and trains you based upon those. From every training session I've had with him I have felt very good leaving and feel results.

Amazing! I was fourtionate to take a few lessons with Baruk. His class starts with an intense cardio workout, leading into a boxing group. I've never taken any form of boxing lessons. baruk was extremely patient, and skillful in his ability to teach me the basics right away. The aggression and stress that I relieved in his class was incomparable to any workout I've done. After a very high impact boxing lesson, he led right into an ab session, which was instructed at the pace and ability of each student. I was sore for the entire week after (good sore)! The final part includes a stretching, which leads into a very relaxing meditation. Baruk transforms from high intensity instructor to a very calming and guiding spirit.
If you are considering taking a lesson from Baruk, do not hestitate any longer, you won't be disappointed!!

Baruk is one of the best trainers I've had for learning how to not only condition my strength more but also to learn self defense and boxing techniques. I feel great everytime I leave his class and I look forward to the next one. He pushes you to succeed in the workouts he gives you and little by little with time you see yourself improving week after week. I've been going once a week for a few months and I feel such a difference in my strength and I'm seeing results. I take what I learn and I also apply them to when I go to the gym on my own on certain workouts he gives me. I definitely recommend him!

Baruk is such a lovely person, knowledgeable and will not let you get away with half effort performance. I have been working out for a very long time but my workout experience in kickboxing with Baruk had me feeling muscles, apparently, I forgot about. I learn so much from him and feel like I am definitely able to defend myself if I must. The best thing about working out with Baruk, is that regardless of what you are doing he helps you connect mind body soul to reach your optimal health. 10 min at the end dedicated to stretching and the whole experience.

Having met Baruk has added tremendously to my life, both physically and spiritually. He will push you to your limits and constantly require you to surpass yourself, but its's all for good. If you are looking for the best mentor around to accompany you in whichever journey you have set for yourself that you think kickboxing can help, than search no more; he is the man you need to meet!

I am glad I found Baruk, he is awesome, great teacher! I was nervous at first but he is very nice and helpful. the workouts are great, lately they have been kicking my butt and I always feel like I can't do it but he always pushes you and motivates you to keep going which is helpful! I love the meditation we have at the end, it's a perfect wine down after all the kickboxing. It was awkward at first but now I can't imagine a workout without meditation at the end. I always leave feeling way better and refreshed than I came in for sure. I definitely would recommend Baruk to anyone.

Antonio is a top-notch yoga instructor. The poses and movements are centered around the breath with an ample warm-up time. The meditative time is warm and healing, often accompanied by aromatherapy, reiki therapy, and Tibetan singing bowls. The yoga is very therapeutic yet appropriate for all, beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Antonio is very caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable about yoga. I would highly recommend him as a yoga instructor.

Let me start by saying that I believe Reiki Therapy its good for anyone and everyone. The sessions I had with Baruk not only allowed for me to truly clear my mind, but also gave me time to re-energized my body so that I could take my daily hustles head-on. what I was most impressed with was his true insight about me as a person. The talks that followed the sessions were just as beneficial for me as the actual sessions. They help me take a deeper look at things that I had been neglected and allowed me to truly believe in myself and my inner strength. Baruk was very calm and grounded so I was very open to his input and suggestions again, I strongly recommend this to everyone no matter the situation you are in.
Thank you Baruk for a wonderful experience!!!!

This yoga class is like no other I have ever taken...the energy is so powerful you immediately get right into the spiritual part of yourself.
Baruk, opens your mind, body and spirit all while making you crack a sweat! He pushes you just the right amount, preparing your body for the extra mile.
The end of the session is by far my favorite! The Meditation/Reiki really seals the deal giving me an attitude of "I'm ready for anything that comes my way".
Taking these classes has been one of the best decision I've made in my adult life....I see life with a new sense of clarity after every class.

Antonio is a master at being in tune with his clients mind, body, and spirit. He creates workouts and plans that benefits the whole body; inside and out. I have had many trainers in my life, and none compare to Antonio.

Wow... Where do I start with Baruk Neko's reiki treatment. It's like bringing a dead flower back to life. At first it was hard to believe and I was fighting because I was unsure what doors he would unlock. It was a 3 day treatment at night a minute meditation where you just lay and then we would talk about everything for a good 30-45 minutes. So close to an hour every night.

Think of being striped naked of all your insecurities and walls you build up around yourself. You are completely vulnerable but in the best way possible. He's always so kind and gentle and supportive through the whole process.

For me the first and second day were the hardest because my body carried a lot of the energy and transformation with me. I had a throbbing headache for two straight days not in the front of my head but in the back lower part of my head. My whole body ached like I was getting a fever or sick. And my right foot killed me. But he assured me this was all normal and part of the process. Energy leaves the body through the feet and hands. It all made sense.

I'm still going through changes. Emotionally it is a rollercoaster. You will feel highs and lows and he will GO THERE with you but very lightly and gently. I feel way more secure and strong it's like I repaired my foundation of life. I'm still working through it all but I recommend everyone to try this at least once in your life. It truly is a SPIRITUAL AWAKENING :)

My entire family (ages ranging from 8 to 75 years old) takes classes with Antonio, ranging from boxing and JiuJitsu, to Hapkido, to meditation, yoga, and personal wellness coach to Reiki healing. He is a great motivator, very knowledgeable about his subject matter, and adds variety to every class....there is never a dull moment!! We highly recommend Antonio to anyone who is looking for an excellent cardiovascular workout, a trainer with a holistic approach, and a personal wellness coach who settles for nothing but the best! Class times/days are flexible which is a huge plus!

I took lessons with Master Antonio in Feb 2013-April 2013. In the time span that I trained with him I managed to lose 15 pounds and was in the best shape I have ever been in my life. He is very engaged in your process and goals. He will push you to do your best in a caring but motivating way. I learned so much from him; not only kickboxing but self defense, meditation and martial arts. After each session you will feel SO GREAT!!!! He truly changed my life and now I feel like a strong individual that can protect myself against anyone who may try to kidnap or hurt me. Thank you Master Antonio!!!!
