_____________________________________
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.

Baruk provides a more focused and comfortable experience. I look forward to my sessions with him, and do not have to worry about the things I dislike about visiting the gym.

If you're looking for a transformation beyond the physical one... look no further Baruk is the guy!

Baruk won't just get you stronger physically... but he'll also help you develop mental and emotional strength as well.

Mind, body, and spirit... Baruk has lot's of knowledge and wisdom to share. He isn't someone with a brief training in certification... Baruk has extensive life experience in Yoga, Boxing, Martial Arts, and more. He hasn't just been around the block... but the world!

I love learning different combinations and seeing my reflexes get stronger. Baruk continues to push me past my mental limits... and what a rush of dopamine that hits when I go against the negative chatter of "Give up" in my mind!

His training has given me a stronger foundation of self-love and strength for the adversity in life.

If you're looking for a tough workout that makes you smile for getting through it at the end... a place where you will gain emotional and mental strength... and connect with the parts of yourself that aren't your thoughts but something truer and real...

Baruk is the trainer for you!

Plus, the scenery is beautiful with amazing wildlife - birds of alllll kinds - around.

Its a magical experience and workout. With the workout concluding with aromatherapy and focusing inwards... breathing... meditating... being.

In a world with so much noise, training with Baruk is my reset and reminder to stay present and have compassion for not just my journey, but others as well.

10/10 experience and the best training I've received.
You won't find this training at a gym like Crunch or La Fitness.

Baruk is a real wise and insightful instructor, he takes his time to understand the student and according to their entry level he customizes his training. I have never had any boxing training and I am only 2 months in and I can already see the progress, he shows tough love but that gets you results. His location is amazing as well you have a beautiful lake as a backdrop so the training feels raw and tribal. He also takes his time at the end with some great breath work and meditation practice. Over all I feel like he's a great teacher, and I look forward to seeing what my full potential is through his training, thanks Baruk!

I had the most profound and spiritual experience during one of Baruk’s yoga & meditation classes. He truly has a positive and healing energy that encompasses everybody in the room. The essential oils and Tibetan sound bowl are an awesome addition to the experience as well. I would highly suggest to anyone to take some of his classes, whether it be kickboxing or yoga, Baruk is the best instructor I’ve ever met!

I have been working with Baruk for a couple weeks. It has helped me with my stress and depression, I'm learning how to defend myself, and I have already noticed physical results. My pain from my accident has been better. He is an incredible teacher and very dedicated to his students well being. I will forever be grateful for this class. It is also a ton of fun!!!!

When Baruk offered me to help me with emotional,mental and spiritual support with Reiki sessions , I did not know he would change my life entirely . I think we are all experiencing "Reiki " differently with him . It is a personal experience and transformation. I can share a part of what he is bringing into my life through Reiki treatments .
I have always been an athlete , a dancer and yoga practitioner but i have trauma past events and since my childhood , i have been fitting anxiety , panics attacks , depression strongly affecting my well - being .
After a month of Reiki sessions with Baruk, I already feel tremendous changes . I am sleeping better , , less insomnia, incredible calmness after each sessions , increase of my energy , able to focus better , breath better , less pain in my diaphragm and plexus region .
Baruk is patient , sensitive , sharp, listen to you and is channeling an incredible positive healing energy to you , adding exercises , chrystals , nutrition ,meditation to your treatments .
Through his sessions and support , my heart is opening . I am extremely grateful and i am looking forward to continuing the process of my self - growth and understanding of unconditional Love .
Deeply , Thank you so much 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 meditation...love 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.

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!!!!
