About Azuri

I Love music, and I love people. I feel that music is and has historically been a way of interpreting and expressing all the diversity in life and our experiences and that our instruments are our tool of expressing, whether it be the drum, guitar, piano, voice, sitar, etc. My inevitable goal here is to help you(student) obtain the technical, theoretical understanding to help you express your own message and story musically and or achieve any musical standard that one connects too and wishes too achieve. Teaching Philosophy - My teaching philosophy is really built on well rounded communication and multiple facets of explanation and examples so that a student can truly understand and learn a topic, surrounded in a very humorous, light and supportive environment. I feel that along with

Azuri is a fun teacher!

I love working with Azuri. He is patient and encourages me. Everytime I have a lesson he says something that opens my eyes. It usually just takes that one meaningful statement he says throughout the lesson for the time there to be worth it all. Moreover, he is a great teacher! It's very fun learning from him.

Real deal

George's true devotion to the martial arts is nothing less than exceptional. You cannot put a price tag on the skills that he teaches and the experience he holds. With George's detail-oriented instruction and amazing ability to teach, it's easy to call him one of the best in the business. For the past 3 years, I wouldn't have rather spent my time training under anybody else, anywhere in the world. Martial arts for life!

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.

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!

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.

I have known, and trained with, Brian for almost 6 years. Not only is Brian a great trainer, but he also offers a unique approach since he was experienced in freestyle wrestling before becoming a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This creates a training curriculum you just won't find anywhere else. Whether you are an experienced grappler or just testing the waters to see if you will enjoy training, Brian will be able to help you.
