i loved the time i attended classes, they were fun and informative , and there was a assortment of styles offered. My conflicts were with time management between work and attending school, an adult class offered on the weekends would have worked better for me especially one designed for older adults that offered basic training and fitness if you ever offer one i'll be back

I have taken karate from Sensei Beall for more than three years, and also recently started taking his kickboxing class. Sensei Beall is very passionate about the martial arts and the integrity of the training process. He requires you to work hard and demonstrate increasingly complex skills in order to be promoted, but at the same time he ensures that you receive training on the required skills and breaks training down to accommodate different skill and functional levels. He is a great teacher with all ages. I recommend him and North Augusta Martial Arts to everyone I meet.

Keith was a great help to our sales staff. It was apparent that his ultimate desire was to help us succeed in our sales training efforts when he went out of his way to stay in touch with our management staff through phone calls and email. We would recommend Keith because he is a stand-up guy and truly cares about those seeking his expertise. He will also tell you if he is not able to help in an area, his integrity is top of the line.

Keith is a fantastic Instructor. He has helped many of my students understand some very difficult concepts in Finance and I have sought refresher sessions with him and its a pleasure to work with him. Keith can breakdown some really difficult financial models and help you demonstrate efficiency with them. I highly recommend him, as I recommend him to all my students at the University.

I teach a modern approach to traditional Japanese and Okinawan Karate. Classes are taught in rigorous and focused manner in a relaxed atmosphere. Students learn effective self-defense, awareness, stress management, healing techniques, and proper body relaxation and mechanics. Karate will also get you in great shape.

My son had the pleasure of taking guitar lessons for 3 years from Ippolito. His passion for music and teaching style was very inspiring, as well as, his patience and motivating demeanor kept my son interested and wanting to improve his musicianship. Always encouraging, with guided interaction, he kept my son on task during lessons. He was very professional and punctual in all our interactions. Above all, he was appreciative and accommodating to my son's style of music without compromising the basic core instruction for guitar. His goal, as an instructor, was to instill a lifelong passion and appreciation for music. I would highly recommend Ippolito as a guitar teacher. It was a pleasure to work with him.

*Please note the Krav Maga description*

Training since I was twelve. Started at Miller's Martial Arts Academy and from a former Israeli Defense Force solider and Navy S.E.A.L. My curriculum is based on the student's desires. I offer a very solid self defense program. Although, if you are looking for just a work out or both this is possible. I get along with all types of people and I advocate peace. Drills are good and we do them but real fights are usually random and chaotic. I offer training to be better prepared for those scenarios.

William has a great attitude and an immense knowledge of martial arts. He is extremely skilled, compassionate, and has a no-ego, non-judgmental approach to his teaching. I recommend this instructor for students both new and experienced. I guarentee he has something to bring to the table to grow you as a person and a martial artist no matter what your background may be.

William was a great instructor. I had never done any kind of martial arts before and he was extremely helpful. He started with the most basic aspects (posture, stance, etc) and made sure I had those down before moving on to various punches and kicks. By the end of the lesson he was integrating more complicated combinations and increasing the pace, but always closely watched my form to ensure I hadn't forgotten what we'd started with. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking to increase or improve their martial arts abilities.

A wide body of knowledge at his disposal to share with his students. Excellent technique and endurance training. Lots of possibility for cross training and versatility. Also has a great passion for the philosophical side of the martial arts.
Very little that he wont touch on if you merely ask.
