DC Aikido Martial Arts Academy: what do users think?


Akire Adams: For anybody looking to learn self defense and build a foundation in martial arts I think this would be a great place to start but you have to want it and actually put forth the effort and ask questions coming here definitely feels like I'm part of the family and the price per month is affordable so if you want to start and gain some personal confidence I definitely think you should join!

walter lewis: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueAll of the staff are very empowering and professional. I felt welcomed. The instructors are very patient and humble. I would highly recommend DC Aikido to anyone seeking to develop self confidence, patience, and self defense skills.

CST CST: Michael Sensei organized an amazing trip to Japan this year. We were 12 people that spent 8 days wonderful days training and sightseeing with members of our sister dojo in Naha and Okinawa city, in Japan. This was my second trip with DC Aikido, and let me tell you it was legendary! We had the best time ever, We immersed ourselves in the Japanese culture. We had the experience of sleeping in a typical Japanese bed. We enjoyed the most exotic foods, and most importantly, made wonderful friends! Hopefully, the Japanese group will come to visit DC next year. Can't wait to show them around town! Thank you Michael Sensei for organizing this epic trip!
Response: And Hilda, we all can't wait for you to come back to Japan a third time!! Your presence on the trip made it that much MORE special. Thank you for all you do!!

Gideon Culman: Nothing but high praise for DC Aikido! I joined the studio last summer for two reasons: to work up a sweat and to use aikido as a physical prism that casts new light on the conversations I conduct day-in, day-out for work as a life coach. From day 1 it has superseded my expectations in the following ways: Everybody is supportive. Anytime I have been stuck, somebody has been there to show me the way. The instructors are eager and attentive. The sparkle on the sheen of DC Aikido’s bright culture is its students, who patiently and respectfully help bring less advanced students to their next level. Every lesson is enlightening. Each class points to new ways I can better serve my clients. Whether we study balance, flexibility, striking or grabbing, not a single lesson goes by without offering up new insights. These insights translate immediately into more adroit and powerful conversations – and satisfied clients.

Rio's “mhall3D” Art 1: GREAT Dojo! I have been training for about a year at DC Aikido and I love it! The folks there are amazing! Veltri Sensei and his team provide a fun and friendly environment for kids and adults. I have gained so much than just learning Aikido. I have gained confidence, strength, and entire Dojo family that I value as my own family. I have found that in training he continually pushes his students to improve their game, both in examining the group as a whole and pinpointing the exact areas that each individual student needs to improve. The support I have received at the dojo has helped improve not only my Aikido and techniques, but my overall sense of self on the mat...my weaknesses and strengths (physical AND mental) are pointed out to me daily and corrected with patience and understanding. What's more, there has ALWAYS been someone of high rank or experience available to answer any question I might have at any given time. I can't say enough about how grateful I am to have met and trained with such an extraordinary man and group of people. Thank you DC Aikido!!!

Jonathan Lemmond: It has been almost two years since I started going to DC Aikido. I love it. I was nervous to start a martial art, but Sensei Michael Veltri, all of the instructors, and all of the students, make DC Aikido incredibly welcoming. I've befriended a great group of people, somehow now get along better with all of the other people in my life, and have gotten in great shape. Training at DC Aikido is tremendously fun.

Ronald Lloveras: I've been a member since August 2012 and I'm glad I took the time to visit/review/research all martial arts locations that are available in the DC area. I was very impressed by the dojo since I first stepped onto their mat. Everyone I met was friendly and very welcoming. After the two tutorial sessions with Charly, I knew that I was going to be a proud member of this dojo. The black belt instructors are great and the all the rest of the members are great as well. Unlike other places I've visited, I didn't feel intimidated by anyone at this dojo. Everyone wanted to help each other learn the techniques and the philosophy behind them. The dojo is clean and well kept. It is conveniently located across the Woodley Park metro and just a few miles by bike.

Jeannys Flamine NNEMNBENG (Jayjay86): I just came back from a trip to Japan that was organized by Michael Sensei . We spent (12 of us) 10 days in Okinawa during which we had the opportunity to receive teaching from Yamaguchi Sensei( Michael Sensei’s Sensei). It was not only a good opportunity for me to grow as an aikido practitioner but also to discover and deeply understand that the skills learned on the mats could be applied in each and every aspect of my life . The art itself, the people( my fellow classmate and of course our Japanese hosts) , the scenery , all contributed in way. They made this trip, my trip, a memorable experience. I tried my best to describe the emotions that I felt during this trip to Japan, but words won't be enough to convey the true meaning of what I experienced . It has to be lived. I hope you’ll be the next to go . I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed .
Response: AND, we are allll so glad you came Jeannys! Thank you for your dedication, commitment, and teamwork helping to make the trip such a great experience!

Christine Ju: We held our daughter's 7th birthday party at DC Aikido. Noah was wonderful to work with, and the price was very reasonable given what was included. They were very accommodating, and the kids seemed to have a great time. Thank you!

Shah Alom Khokon: Good for kids.

Fort Washington United: what do users think?


Esha: This is my son's first year attending FWU and I couldn't be more excited and blessed for my son to work with such a professional and polite staff. My son's tutor Ms. Nicole has worked tirelessly to make sure he not only stays on task for his grade level goals but that he also exceeds them.🙌🏽 My son also has some amazing coaches that are not only helping to teach him the various skills and techniques associated with MMA but they also teach him discipline, respect, and teamwork.😉 FWU has mastered the recipe for developing successful students and I'm glad my son is one of them.😊

Willie Hicks: Hope this review helps anyone on the fence……..our son is an energetic (kid has a lithium Ion Tesla battery), rambunctious, 100% boy. We love him to pieces but noticed his weight was slowly creeping up, his attention span, and listening skills weren’t where we wanted them to be. We wanted to be proactive and get him into a disciplined environment while also increasing his physical activity. We researched different Martial Arts Academy’s in the Fort Washington area and came across Fort Washington United. We initially called in January 2021 and spoke with Nicole. Within a week we decided to bring our son in for a trial class. The atmosphere and environment was very welcoming. The staff stopped what they were doing to invite us in, take us on a tour, and answer the zillion questions we had. Our son immediately fell in love with the class and was a participant 4-5 times a week in the evenings and on Saturday’s. Fast forward to the Spring and we were prompted with the decision to do the traditional Summer Camp for our son, or enroll him in the Summer Program offered at Fort Washington United. We are so glad we went with FWU. Our son (who turned 6 in May) has progressed immensely in the areas of reading, problem solving, communication, public speaking, water safety (swimming), and leadership. The lessons and principles instilled by the staff has turned our son into a responsible, respectful natural leader who can also throw a hell of a punch and follow with a roundhouse kick, but will also help an old lady across the street……..AWESOME STAFF! AWESOME MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM! Can’t say enough great things……wish I could give them 10 STARS!

Kisha DeSandies Lester: Earlier this spring, I was looking for a martial arts academy for my five year old son, who was about to start kindergarten. My husband and I wanted to help him get used to being about other kids, since he had been in quarantine for over a year with little to no other time to play with kids his age. We also wanted to instill confidence, respect and self-control and believe that mixed martial arts is a good way to achieve that. I had planned on starting our son in a program in the fall, but as I looked for summer camp programs, I discovered Fort Washington United (FWU). Initially, we wanted to make sure that our son could keep up with the summer program and the evening classes. The staff was great is working with us and our son to assess his ability and we were able to register him for 5-6 weeks of summer camp and the daily martial arts classes. Our son LOVES FWU! He enjoys the structure and working with the coaches and all of the moves that he learns each week. He also is making friends with the other students. Because our son doesn’t attend school nearby, we are not enrolled in the after school program, but we would if we could. Martial arts has given our son confidence and he’s excited to practice his moves at home to anyone who will watch! The summer camp was simply phenomenal! Our son loved the weekly themes, lessons and field trips they went on. The coaches taught the kids important values and taught them how to speak up, be respectful, be responsible, and be a good citizen of the academy. We also loved how the kids worked in teams, by age and presented their projects each week. We were blown away that our 5-year-old was doing PowerPoint presentations and building airplanes and coming up with business plans. There is also a wonderful education track during the summer camp week and after-school program to help keep your child learning at their grade level and beyond (if they are able to). This summer camp also prepared him for the social aspects of kindergarten (eating lunch, playing with others, transitions to different activities, keeping up with your personal items, etc.) I read a review about how this program may not be for younger kids. I would say that it would depend on the child. My son has thrived at FWU. He was one of the youngest kids in the summer program and he did great! He also is inspired and motivated by the older kids, and teens who help with the summer camp. I also think that a lot of our kids need to get a little real-world consequences for their actions when they don’t follow the rules. My son is motivated by that and the point system is an appropriate tool in the academy setting. He doesn’t like losing points because other kids on his team aren’t listening, so he tries to be a leader and example, which we like to see. Overall, I have and will continue to recommend FMU to parents. It’s a safe and nurturing place to have your kids. The staff (Steve, Nicole, Karen, Jason, Charles) are all upbeat and keep you informed on what’s going on. I love how Coaches Jason and Charles are with my son and all the kids. We love that Steve and Nicole are veterans and they have made the decision to pour into the lives of kids. Karen is always helpful, pleasant and supportive every time I see her. My husband and I have been really happy with the decision to enroll our son in this program.

Nat Geary: I've trained at UMAA since September 2018, and since then, my growth has been immense. If you're into challenging workouts, this place has you covered (I am down 40 lbs and keeping the weight off). If you're looking for fulfilling afterschool programs for children, this place is dedicated to both mental and physical success, with tutoring and homework support to go along with martial arts instruction. If you are interested in setting and achieving personal goals, I can personally attest that this gym has helped me reach new heights. I never saw myself winning a grappling tournament, but the coaches, staff, and teammates made that a reality. I cannot recommend this place enough . From ownership down to students, this place is all class. It is more than just a gym, it is a community hub.

Dawn Washington: I am the mom of a special needs child. I was very hesitant to put him in martial arts. I’m glad we did, best decision we ever made! Grappling and striking have boosted my sons self esteem. During summer camp, the group went on museum tours. Each week had a educational theme. They learned coding, finance principles and received points for each book they read over the summer. The points could be used for toys and games. Now that school has started, the focus is on homework. I worried the staff wouldn’t be one on one with my son for his studies so I didn’t bother sending his homework. Imagine my surprise when his teacher sent multiplication homework home and my son already knew it! He’d work with staff using Kahn academy. Great place, great staff!!!

Jazmin Simms: I highly recommend UMAA. My son Mason has attended the after school program for almost 2 years now and I could not be more thankful to the coaches and staff. Since attending, Mason has become a lot more confident, disciplined and an overall better student. The coaches and staff care a lot about the kids and always go the extra mile to help whether it’s with training or homework.

Steven Hoang: The United Martial Arts Academy has classes for the entire family! The classes are great for people of all ages that want to learn top rated self defense and get fit! The kids have a ton of fun during classes! I would recommend this gym to anyone again and again!

Charmicielle Goodine: This establishment does not know how to handle primary children. The punishment for a 5 year old should not be the same for a 12 year old. The point system that the children are on is very subjective. And thinking that a 5 year old should have the same responsibility as a 12 year is ridiculous. It is probably a great establishment for older students but not for younger children.

fairlane urbina: My son goes to UMAA to their after school program. The coach never misses a day to update us that my son got picked from school, in the van and when they’re in school. We celebrated my son’s 11th birthday at UMAA and the theme was Nerf Blast. The party was a “BLAST” all kids had a great time and the staffs did a “BLAST” job! I highly recommend this school. Not only they love what they do, but they care the well being of their students.

Jaquan Butler: United Martial Arts Academy is great environment to build a foundation for martial arts. With a diligent staff and wonderful community it is an excellent environment for learning, guaranteed to instill the calmness and confidence needed to succeed.

JTR Jujutsu International: what do users think?


Corinne Kramer: My kids have been attending jujitsu at JTR for over two years. I have been watching them get stronger and grow their discipline and decided I need that in my life too, so I started the Women's Self Defense class. Hoo boy is this a workout! And tons of fun, with a great staff and great classmates. If you're looking for a workout experience that can really help you grow as a person, I recommend you check out JTR.

Maura Policelli: The instructors at JTR are exceptional! Our granddaughter is learning the art of jujutsu as well as the importance of discipline, self control, respect, and integrity. She is part of an amazing community of young athletes and dedicated teachers. We are so very grateful to Master Don and Master Mobi!

Carole Bernard: I highly recommend the Women Self Defense and Adult beginner jujutsu classes. I joined the self defense class with my 2 teenage daughters 2 years ago and the jujutsu class more recently. The training has been fantastic to build up strength, stamina but more importantly to gain skills and confidence in self defense. There is a wide choice of classes during the week - 3 weekly classes for women self defense and the adult jujutsu classes are running every day! so no excuse not to train! The instructors and masters are very caring about you and your progress.

oscar sanz-paris: A real jewel in DC. There is a wealth of knowledge in a unusually large group of masters an instructors, each bringing a deep understanding and unique knowledge to share. Mater Don and Master Andrae do an incredible job creating a caring community around the dojo. My son started training 3 years ago in the juniors class, when we moved to DC. His confidence, auto-discipline and maturity has grown enormously thanks to the engaging yet effective teaching styles of master Mobi and Master Don. He enjoyed the program so much, we all decided to join in (even me...aged 50...). One of the best decision ever!

Harold Brown: I am a new student here at JTR. I don't like it here. I LOVE it here. Master Don is fabulous. He is patient and encouraging to all his students. Joining JTR has been a good experience for he so far.

Amma Hewitt: JTR jujutsu is an incredible place for children and families to grow. There is an emphasis on being the best you can be, and supporting others to be the best that they can be. This message is so refreshing in a world that emphasizes competition over collaboration. Children are reminded about the importance about practice, honesty and an earnest spirit. There are lessons here for young, old, and in between. We are so privileged to be part of the JTR community!

Amanda Budny: Excellent classes for children and adults, plus a womens self defense program. All classes focus on total body development and practical combat skills. Currently, there are classes via zoom and socially distanced in person classes. The school is very serious about smart hygiene habits which is very reassuring. I'd highly recommend this school to anyone wanting to start a martial arts journey.

Nick P: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueMy daughter joined a few months ago as a beginner and absolutely loves it. The instructors are fantastic and she has learned so much already.

Stephen Jefferson: The instructors are great. My son loves coming here and he is learning alot.

Yaseen Ahmed: Bad quality teaching and made me buy a tshirt
Response: Hi Yaseen, respectfully, we have no record of you in our system of having ever trained with us. If you did have a negative experience associated with our school, we'd love to have a conversation and learn more.

N-Flux: what do users think?


Becca Andersen: I had no prior experience with self defense or any martial art and my boyfriend bought me the Women and Femme self defense intensive course for this weekend. It was AMAZING, so inclusive of all experiences and fitness levels, talked about real world applications and scenarios and gave us a safe space to practice those scenarios and key moves to protect us. There were no gimmicks, just each person realizing their own strength and ability and personal strategy. The instructors were kind, inclusive, supportive, and I will definitely be returning for more classes. Thank you!!! [people, buy course passes for your partner, for yourself, for your family... they'll love it!!]

Katherine Daw: I went to self defense for women and femmes with Colleen! Amazing course! Colleen has designed the curriculum with both practicality and thoughtfulness in mind. She made sure all of us felt safe, cared for, and heard throughout the experience, even as we were tackling difficult topics and potentially triggering exercises and drills. She and the folks helping out were very knowledgeable and gave great pointers and individual attention to everyone in the class. I’ve come out of the weekend very sore, but feeling empowered and much more confident in my ability to defend myself in an emergency. This class has also inspired me to continue training in martial arts so that I continue to hone my self defense skills. Truly can’t recommend this highly enough.

Sean Leonard: I was a complete beginner to martial arts classes, and N-Flux was a fantastic, welcoming environment. There was a broad range of skill levels – from completely new people to seasoned professionals. Would highly recommend for someone looking for a place with a good sense of community, wide range of classes, or even a good open gym environment.

Leah Wilson-Lyons: I went to self defense for femmes with Colleen and had the BEST time. A welcoming gym environment for women that you won’t find at other places. I feel strong and empowered and lucky to have taken the self defense course. Every woman in DC should take this course!! It is so worth every penny. Colleen goes above and beyond to help you outside of class and to get to know you personally. The environment is very supportive and helped with my anxiety going in. Great community at that gym. I will be back!

Alexis Barton: I highly recommend the Guerrera workshop and Colleen that I took with N-Flux. I took the workshop with my 12 year old daughter and we both had an incredible experience - both with Colleen and the other instructors and with the group of women in the workshop with us. We were a mix of women of different ages, sizes, life-experience, and abilities but we all felt included and comfortable - which for practicing something like this is so important. Colleen made every technique and strategy accessible and straightforward but we still learned so much. Thank you!

Andrea Fort: I took the Guerrera self-defense class out of pure curiosity and I LOVED IT! This was just the type of physical / mental challenge I was looking for and I mean that it wasn't difficult, just something that felt really great to achieve! Colleen, the lead instructor, is a powerhouse and her energy is contagious! I also appreciated the wholesome guidance from all 3 other instructors, ever watchful about our technique and form... encouraging us along the way. It was also amazing to bond with other women and femmes over such a particular and vulnerable practice. I'm so glad to have met all of them, THIS IS a safe space! Thank you Colleen, Sarah, Tahira, Riley, you all make such a great and diverse team! I highly recommend this experience to ANYONE. Go for it!

Roger Routh: Went to N-Flux while I was in DC visiting my daughter. She's been going for over a year and speaks highly of it. I can see why. It was a GREAT workout. Tremendous camaraderie between the attendees and between the attendees and Chris the owner. I highly recommend it.

Kay Tang: Colleen and her team of instruction assistants are amazing. They truly create a great space for females to voice, share, and learn the everyday challenge to their safety. I learned a lot!

Caroline Routh: The happiest I've been in a long time! Working out here provides me with an amazing community of peers who aim to uplift and support each other, and the staff instruction is unmatched anywhere in the city. As a beginner I have never felt overwhelmed or intimidated. I cannot recommend N-Flux highly enough!

Akhilesh Pillalamarri: N-Flux is so great! Due to joining N-Flux, I developed, for the first time in my life, an interest in fitness and exercise because N-Flux showed me the path of holistic mind-body thinking and helped me foster a goal of improvement. I initially joined just to stay fit on a weekly basis, but now I also want to attain certain fitness goals and push myself more. One of the main reasons for this is the supportive and personalized atmosphere that keeps one coming back and that everyone who goes to N-Flux soaks in. My favorite classes are the mace training and boxing, but I recommend everything, and there's something for everyone of every level. The people are great, and of course, a special thanks to Chris and Colleen, who have made N-Flux what it is today. Highly recommended!

Yamajiro Ninja Academy: what do users think?


Luis Martinez Racing: Great place to learn true self defense martial arts. They are a traditional Japanese school but teach techniques for the modern world where most schools now teach for tournaments. Omar Sensei is also great with teaching discipline techniques to children.

Sydney Brackins: Whether you're looking for Self-Defense, something to help you stay in shape, or an activity to help with stress, Yamajiro Ninja Academy is the place to go. You will be surrounded by extremely friendly students and a teacher who is one of the best. This isn't a run-of-the-mill, chain Martial Arts schools, this place is one-of-a-kind. You will be learning a traditional Japanese Martial Art along with modern applications of true Self-Defense.

Mark Bramble: This is a great school to learn traditional martial arts. Great teacher and wonderful group of students! If you're looking to learn self-defense, get in better shape, improve discipline, and learn ninjutsu, this is your place. Don't miss out!!!

josh Fried: I have been training with Sensei Omar for almost two years now and have learned a TON from him. He is a knowledgable, caring and attentive teacher, teaching both adults and children. He has taught me effective self defense techniques learning in a controlled environment and ensuring the safety of his students. I highly recommend you try out one of his classes if you are interested!

Cade Ezra: I could only go to the classes for one month due to personal reasons, but I loved every second of it and wish I could go back. I've taken classes in Judo, Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, and now Ninpo with Yamajiro Ninja Academy, and I can confidently say my time learning Ninpo here was the best out of all four. I strongly recommend anyone interested in Ninpo or martial arts to go here first.

kikyomiko101 miko: I use to be a student at Yamajiro Academy but unfortuanately had to stop attending due to an injury related to something else, but as a woman I loved it because I didn't need to worry about overpowering my opponents for any of the techniques to work. The Sensei was very knowledgeable and the class atmosphere was fun, friendly and educational.

Kara Zajac: I saw the Yamajiro Ninja Academy perform at Sakura Matsuri this year. They have well set up program and the sensei is vary knowledgeable about martial arts, the history of ninja and the weapons/tactics they used.
Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed our Sakura Matsuri demo! We always put in a lot of effort into organizing our public events, so positive feedback is highly encouraging. Thank you and see us perform in D.C. again next year!

Amar Oak: Great place to learn! Omar was a very good instructor and taught me a lot about self defense. Highly recommend this everyone!

Krav Maga Capitol Hill: what do users think?


Kaelin Kovacik: KM Capitol Hill is great! I have never done Krav or any other form of marital art / self-defense training. I decided to sign up as a creative way to workout while also learning a useful skill. The classes have been great, the instructors are very knowledgeable and kind, and everyone is welcoming. It has also been an unexpected confidence boost. I’d recommend this studio to anyone interested in self-defense.

Jamie Morgan: This gym is amazing. For anyone familiar with Krav, the gym does a great job of combining technique and aerobic training. For anyone new to Krav, it’s a fantastic way to build on any fitness training you do and learn self defense. I’ve done all different types of workout classes for years, and this has taken my fitness to a different level. Plus the community is very welcoming! Highly recommend.

Randall Thomas: Love KM Capitol Hill! Welcoming environment for those who've never taken KM. The instructors are excellent - highly knowledgeable, take time to correct poor form, etc., and always supportive though consistently challenging students to go hard. Great facility as well.

N. Uhuru: Energetic and knowledgeable instructors. You will sweat!! Great location too with parking.

Maryeliz Point: Classes were great, I moved so it was no longer possible for me to attend. Here is the cancellation process: 1. Submit written notice of intent to cancel by mail to their headquarters. 2. Receive an email directing you to the secret login information required to access the cancellation forms of the website 3. Document you have a disability or have reached the end of your contract 4. Print, sign, and email that document back to them - noting that every time you email them their automatic bounce back is "We are currently experiencing a high volume of messages, and we appreciate your patience. Someone from our Member Services team will be in touch with you soon!" but they will ignore your follow up questions and not get back to you. 5. Be charged for two additional months while simultaneously receiving "Late payment" notices. When you respond to those you get the same "We're so busy messages" 6. Who knows - they still haven't stopped charging me and I started this process in September. Edit: As of January, and after a complaint to the Better Business Bureau, my additional charges were refunded and no new charges have come through.

Jenni Myung: Highly trained and skilled instructors, good mix of classes and levels, well-organized and run. Also, they have good swag.

Jeff Mount: The best Krav Maga training center in Washington, D.C.

Gabriella Myers: Great classes with that "everybody is welcome" atmosphere

BETA Academy: what do users think?


Ma D: Awesome place for beginners and advanced BJJ lovers. Very friendly people. Good technics. I highly recommended this place who visiting Washington DC also who decided to start practising Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Guys when you browsing different clubs with thoughts about what to choose please go there and you will meet really cool professional people. Good luck everyone. Oss.

Jack Cantlay: The instruction is top notch. Your instructors are amazing and follow a coherent system of training so that each week is a new thing. The gym culture is very friendly and welcoming but I still feel like I can get competitive live rolls. It really matters that your instructors are so friendly. That goes a long way. But they still push me! I love the balance.
Response: Thank you so much Jack, we appreciate that! We pride ourselves on our welcoming community and believe that a strong community fosters growth in our students.

Thuhuong Dao: - Coach to child ratio was excellent. - Coaches did a great job working the room and - working with each child/group. - Introduction/greet for my children’s first class was great and energetic. - Disciplining the students during class was thorough and appreciated. - Dismissal of students was organized (liked how the coach only let the kids go when he say the parents).
Response: HI there! Thank you so much for the review! We appreciate your feedback and we're so happy that you experienced the professionalism of our Kids' coaches!

Tara Trinity: Coach Carlos, coach D, everyone is amazing. We love Beta!!!! My son has come into an environment that supports him and is compassionate as well as disciplined. The diversity is something I was personally looking for, and that’s something that is even more a bonus.

Walter Bayer: Great place for all-levels of Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu enthusiasts. Very beginner-friendly with knowledgeable coaches who will patiently walk you through everything you need to know. After training here for a few sessions, you'll experience the great sense of community they foster. I loved that there was also a weight room to supplement training with strength & conditioning.

Tim .G: We were in DC on vacation and they welcomed us in for open mat, even stayed later to roll. Coach Gabriel was awesome. Awesome facility! Super friendly community! I definitely recommend!

Tyrone Calvin: I’m no strange to BETA academy and every time I go, I leave better than I arrived. Everyone is very friendly and professional. The Brazilian Ju Jitsu class is informative and state of the art in self defense.

CJ Francis: I love the welcoming culture, the high level and clarity of instruction, the daily availability of no gi classes as well as gi. Also the ample amount of time given for both drilling and sparring.

Saron Dessalegn: Friendly Coaches are willing to help and give good instructions!! Definitely recommend for a great education in Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu.
Response: Thank you so much Saron!

Amy Putens: In honesty we could not be more thrilled with our experience with BETA! We have been apart of the BETA community for approximately 2yrs. We started out just being an attendee of their summer program. After summer was over we would drive by often and my daughter would ask- "When do we get to go back to beta?" I knew then that this was where we needed to be. When you have a daughter (who is a girlie girlie) wanting to be apart of something so much bigger than Ballet or gymnastics I was sold. We then signed up for the after school program and we haven't turned back since. The excitement both my children have for their amazing staff and program is the reward for me at the end of the day. Having being I can trust in to guild my children down the right path and for my kids to respect them is 100% why we choose BETA!!!!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU BETA! Thank you for all that you give!!!!!!
Response: Hi Amy, thank you so much for sharing your story with us! It makes us proud to have kids as enthusiastic and motivated as yours in our Kids Program!

Jeff Hale: Excellent instructors! My on has been going to Tae Kwon Do here for maybe 4 years. It's a great community. Very welcoming of new folks.

Shani Dhani: This school is absolutely amazing. In the beginning, honestly, I had my doubts but I'm impressed I must say. They have lived up to the 5 stars plus. I've noticed my kid is much calmer and a bit more focused. Whereas he was once a Very active and off task kid. Amazing and All worth it.

Garner Marshall: I bring all of my children to learn Tae Kwon DO at this location. The instruction is phenomenal. They are very strict, sort of para-military. They instill values into the students. The instructors are very sincere. Great location. Worth every penny.

Julius Alston: While studying and practicing Tae Kwon Do under the tutelage of Master O'Kelly I was able to obtain my Black belt. The training as well as the experience I received has become an integral part of my character. I am would recommend the school to anyone . Through the journey of becoming a black belt I became a more confident in all my affairs. By practicing the 5 tenets of Tae Kwon Do I am able to navigate a more serene life. Thanks !

Anthony Lin: Very good instructors in my opinion! Also, sometimes games of dodge ball needed.

M B Delissaint: Awesome place to learn. They do well in balancing between strict regimenand and patience with young kids.

Zora Thompson: i'm a black belt, and I love it! I go twice a week!

Claudia Escobar: Great teachers and methods. Kids just loose to go and learn new techniques!

Yong Studios DC: what do users think?


J & C Caminos: Positive: Professionalism, ValueMy son has been going to Yong Studios for almost 5 years and he loves it!!! Master Kim is the best and so is Mr. Surage and the rest of the teaching team. They teach the kids discipline and focus and confidence. I would highly recommend Yong Studios for anyone that wants to learn Taekwondo in a great atmosphere!!!!

Ivan Moore: This is an amazing Taekwondo studio! My two sons and I took classes at Yong Studios over a number of years. The instructors are top notch and break down the difference kicks, punches, blocks, forms, etc. so they are easier to learn and you can develop good technique. They vary the different activities in different classes to keep it interesting. Their emphasis on physical fitness, stretching and mental focus helps their students. I love how they incorporate some kickboxing elements in their instruction, which results in even better self defense techniques. The instructors command respect, but have developed a real family friendly atmosphere. I have moved away from the DC area and Yong Studios is one of the things I miss the most! Tip: You really need to commit to coming to class at least 2-3 times per week to see the best results.

Jim LoScalzo: My kids have gone to Yong Studios for more than ten years—I can’t recommend them enough. Founder Master Kim and teacher Master Surage offer fun, empowering, no-nonsense training for a variety of ages. One aspect I find especially appealing: kids are required to leave the horseplay at the door. If you don’t behave, you get called out. Also, advanced belts do get to spare in full protective gear. For my kids, Taekwondo is now more than a martial art—it’s a lifestyle. And Yong Studios is more than a studio—it’s an institution.

Stefan Atev: Positive: Professionalism, QualityHave attended the studio for about 4 years with my middle-school aged son. Great instruction, varied classes, and continuous sparring. It's a more traditional Taekwondo school that does not shy away from hand techniques in sparring. The online classes have also worked great during the Covid lockdown.

David Blair: This is the first martial arts school I ever attended. I left the District ten years ago and have trained in more schools than I care to count, but this remains the unqualified gold standard by which I judge all others. No other school I have attended matches Yong Studios in the thoroughness or precision of the instruction. What sets Yong Studios apart, in my view, is that the instructors explicitly break down each technique into its constituent parts and explain how each part should be performed, and how it adds to the greater whole. Most instructors simply demonstrate a round kick once or twice and expect the students to replicate the movement. This leads to a lot of very, very sloppy technique, particularly among the lower belts. Yong Studios instructors explicitly perform each step of the technique and insist that students learn these steps individually before attempting to perform the entire movement. This means that learning each technique takes more time, but it also means that when the student learns a technique, he or she learns it correctly. I can assure you, that’s something that far too few studios can boast. As a wise man once said, if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

Bill Peyser: I can’t say enough good things about Yong Studios. Master Kim and Master Surage have developed and sustained a fantastic Tae Kwon Do program grounded in friendship, respect, knowledge, honesty, discipline, and strength. These values are apparent in the way they run the studio and instruct the students. Yong Studios offers a great combination of traditional Tae Kwon Do along with practical sparring training. Even though repetition is key to learning, retaining, and perfecting martial arts skills, every class is unique and offers just the right balance of stretching and fitness training. Both masters have the unique ability to demonstrate techniques, break them down step-by-step, explain their rationale and application, and fold them into the curriculum. I highly recommend this studio to kids, teens, and adults.

Colin Bartley: Both instructures know their stuff. They work really hard with all ages and abilities. No nonsense, no goofing. It's not cheap, the more you go the more cost effective it becomes, but you really need to be going at least twice a week, and try and be consistent.

Maureen Javers: My son has been taking lessons for nearly three years and loves Yongs Studios. He is nine, a brown belt and excited to continue with Tae Kwon Do for as long as possible - he can't wait to be a possible teenage teacher/helper. The staff makes the sessions fun while also challenging. They truly get to know the students and do a great job with individual teaching, in a group setting.

Jada Fife: I've been at Yong Studios now for over seven years now. It feels like a second home to me. I would highly recommend others to practice here, especially teenagers. I started pretty late (I was 11) and I always felt like I belonged. Yong Studios was the perfect place for me to grow up. The masters not only taught me taekwondo, but also how to be confident, brave, and determined, as cliche as it sounds.

Shannon: Positive: Communication, Quality, ValueI mostly go to the Bethesda studio, but it's great to have the option of Tenleytown as well for if class times at Bethesda don't work with my schedule. The studio is conveniently located right across from the Metro and is a welcoming environment for new students.

Pentagon Mixed Martial Arts: what do users think?


Michael “Newmie” Newman: Fantastic facilities, welcoming owners & staff, excellent initiative and follow up from highly-qualified & patient trainers. My son & i both excel (soar!) at every professionally-designed training session and class at Pentagon MMA. Teddy is my regular trainer, consistently showing up to push me, break me, lift me when my own efforts are lacking. Sifting out the weak vibes with slick music, his enabling fortitude is the exact coaching you will benefit from as well. Trust this reborn, remade 55 yr old “dad with gray hair and missing memory” — the place to find your fit self again is right here at Pentagon MMA. #[As known well, the discipline must come from within YOU. For this gym and the facilities, along with the experienced staff, and your committed presence combined is THE ONE *CATALYST* YOU need to patiently push yourself to find again once-held that holistic belief in yourself… and achieve grand, new fitness goals. Results guaranteed!]
Response: Michael, thank you so much for your kind words. Thank you for entrusting us with your family’s martial arts journey!

David Ebb: This place is simply a cut above the rest! The workouts are well thought out and crazy fun! Class sizes aren't too big. You go at your own pace and skill level so it's never intimidating. You can always turn it up if need be and the coaches are right there to encouraged and push you through. The environment is very clean, friendly and inviting, you feel like family. It starts with the owners, they're fantastic! They bring a highly trained staff, professionalism and a kids program that's unmatched. I would highly recommend.
Response: Thank you David! We are grateful for your trust and for sticking with us since our very early days.

Joshua Ogboenyiya: I have been a member at pentagon for about 3 years now and I can’t think of a better gym to train at. All the coaches take their time explaining the different techniques, and they really have an attention for detail. I can tell this is more than fitness and being in shape. Everyone at pentagon truly wants students to grow and improve as martial artists. Everyone is warm and inviting and you can immediately get the feeling of a community among the student, coaches, and staff. I would recommend training at pentagon to anyone who has thought about joining a gym but hasn’t taken the leap yet – you won’t regret it.
Response: Joshua, thank you for your kind words and for entrusting us with your martial arts journey. We appreciate you!

Morgan Boswell (TheCalixte): I started doing MMA at 16 and have trained at a few different gyms. I have NEVER had the type of coaching and teammates anywhere else. The coaches at Pentagon truly care about each and every person and make it a comfortable environment for beginners through advanced. I have NEVER felt better about my body, mind, and ability then before- going on a year now and planning on many, many more! Whether you're looking to get in shape, fight, train, make friends, find a family, this gym has it all!! I love Pentagon!!!
Response: Morgan, we are grateful for you and the opportunity you gave us to work with you towards your martial arts goals. Our team will be so happy to read this review!

B: Thoroughly enjoyed my time at PMMA over the course of 3-4 years. Was a great way to keep in shape while learning self defense arts. Also a great way to keep yourself humble while sparring against other focused driven individuals. Can’t recommend enough. Coaching staff was also excellent abs they kept the place clean and tidy.
Response: Hey B, thanks so much for your kind words!

Carl Weis: After looking at several MMA gyms in the area, I decided to give Pentagon MMA a try. Their involvement in the community and kids programs are what appealed to me at first, because I was looking for a place that my 4 year old could attend, but it was everything else about this gym that convinced me to start training there as well. This place is awesome! The staff, instructors, and students are very professional, friendly, and welcoming. I have seen so much improvement with my son and his behavior after going here, and I have seen huge improvement in my training as well. I cannot say enough good things about this gym. If you are looking to get into martial arts, Muay Thai, Brazilian Ju Jitsu, or any of their other programs you owe it to yourself to try it out. I promise you won’t regret it. You will get into the best shape of your life, and will be part of a family that encourages you to be your best self inside and outside of the gym. You will make friends and above all you will build habits that last. Thank you for everything that you do. I’m proud to represent Pentagon MMA and recommend it to everyone I know.
Response: Carl, we are beyond grateful for your kind words and feedback. Thank you for trusting us with your family’s martial arts journey and for putting in the work to get a little better, each and every day. We will keep working hard to bring you the best service we can!

Eleanor D: I came to Pentagon MMA after trying a few other martial arts gyms in the area and immediately liked the atmosphere, the classes, and the people. The trial program was awesome, and I signed up to start the second I finished it. While I love the Muay Thai classes, and how they push you outside your comfort zone and work every part of your body, the best thing about this place is the community they have cultivated. There’s no better place to train!
Response: Hi Eleanor, thank you so much for making our day with your kind words, and for reminding us why we do what we do every day. We appreciate you and will keep working hard to help you reach your goals!

Olivia Holmes: An amazing gym in so many ways. I highly highly recommend all programs here and specifically the jiu jitsu program; especially if you're a woman, it's just such a great group of strong and supportive women out on the mats. The instructors are the highest quality and really make it a priority to make everyone feel welcome, safe, and to create a challenging and fun learning environment. Definitely recommend if you're looking to get into any kind of martial arts!! Keep up the great work Pentagon!!
Response: Thanks so much Olivia! We appreciate your trust and look forward to helping you reach your goals.

Celine Ferguson: This gym is amazing! The staff is friendly, professional, and incredible at what they do. They’ve made me feel welcome since day one and really do their best to make sure you understand the technique & train hard. In just a few months I’ve learned so much and still feel physically challenged every time I walk in. I highly recommend pentagon MMA.
Response: Celine, thanks so much for your feedback and kind words! We are thankful for you and will keep working hard to help you achieve your goals.

Nicholas Hunter: I started at Pentagon MMA when I was only 11 years old in the young warriors program. Ever since I started the instructors there focused on teaching not only martial arts but discipline and respect too. They made sure to push everyone in the class and to make sure they learned not only martial arts but life lessons as well. I am now 18 and still attend classes at pentagon MMA however, now they are the adult classes. The instructors make the classes a lot of fun for everyone while also pushing us to become better. The environment at pentagon MMA is one of the best things about the gym. Everyone is so nice and always willing to help, it’s just one big friend group where everyone has fun.
Response: Nicholas, it has been an honor watching you grow in your martial arts journey. We are so proud of you and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

Kogaion Academy Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Judo: what do users think?


Ed Herranz: The last time I studied judo was around 15 years ago in NJ at Tech Judo. While there were some very good coaches there, I did not feel they cared much about my safety, and they allowed other students to be too rough with lesser experienced students as myself. I was hesitant to go back to judo again now in my 50’s, but Sensei Victor is the best judo teacher I have ever had and he’s deeply concerned about the safety of his students. He helped me realize it’s never too late to go back to Judo.
Response: Thank you Ed! We are very happy to have you in our judo class.

Paola Martinez: Kogaion Academy is one of the best places that I’ve been trained Judo at. They helped me improve my Judo skills for my next competition. I even drove 8 hours just to train with them with my family!
Response: Thank you Paola! You are welcome any time.

Anthony Iorio: I've been attending Kogaion for about 5 months now, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to train. As a beginner that was kind of nervous about trying something new, the instructor (Victor) did an awesome job of making me feel welcome, as did the whole community at Kogaion. Victor offers really valuable input on how you can improve, and again you cannot overstate how great the overall culture and atmosphere at the gym is. There is a great mix of both beginners and advanced belts, and everyone strikes a nice balance of maintaining competitiveness, but also remaining supportive of one another. I would say Kogaion has something to offer for everyone. Also as someone with a busy schedule, the nice balance of morning and evening classes is really great. Also, coming from a beginner I would definitely recommend giving the one free class a shot. You will not regret it!
Response: Thanks for your review Tony! We are super happy to be witnessing your progress since day one.

Gary Hilleshiem: Outstanding school. Instructors had high level detail and value added in transitions and drills throughout the entire class. Students were encouraging, welcoming friendly to visitors. If you are in the area and looking to start jiujitsu or just visiting do yourself a favor and check this place out.
Response: Thank you Gary! You’re welcome back anytime.

Isra Harahap: The perfect and complete martial arts dojo!! I considered my self lucky to find Kogaion Academy, it is the perfect and complete gym with a bargain price. This a dojo where you can workout as a beginner, an experienced martial arts practitioner, or you can be a competitor it you want test what you have learned. You can get great training and instructions everyday and in a very safe environment. Victor and Beatrice are great instructors with attention to details and will work and engage with you individually in the class, it feels like you are getting a private lesson. There are very few gyms that will teach you Judo and Brazilian Jujitsu the combination gives you the knowledge to safely take your opponent/attacker from standing to the ground and controlling the person on the ground. You can come to workout at the dojo everyday of the week, again this is a bargain!!
Response: Thank you Isra! We are super happy to have you here.

Kristen Medvetz: I started doing BJJ because my husband kept begging me to try it with him. Originally I had agreed thinking, hey, I’ll try anything once. Now I can’t get enough of it. I was immediately welcomed by so many kind and accepting people. I was amazed at what these people could do and I wanted to be just like them. It’s a great place for beginners and experienced people alike. There’s a good variety of people, and a great group of women. If you’re a woman thinking about doing BJJ this is a great place to start.
Response: Thank you Kristen. You and Travis will always have a home here.

Samuel Salazar: For those who are looking for a nice environment where you can learn something you’re interested in like Brazilian Jiu jitsu or Judo, then this place is perfect for anyone out there at any age. The moment you join this academy, you enter into a world where you’re always welcomed, a world where you become part of a family that’s always there to help you to achieve your goals. Whether your goal to own all the belts in Judo or to simply burn some calories, this is a good place to start or continue this path. People here are really nice, supportive, fun, and overall it’s place where you can enjoy the experience of martial arts. The schedule of this academy is pretty solid since there’s classes every day and you can participate in tournaments if you want as well. Don’t feel committed to this academy either, if it’s not your thing, there’s no shame in leaving, you can always comeback again with the doors open. Just want to mention that there’s an extreme low amount of teenagers in this academy from what I’ve seen in the adult classes, the majority are men and women although mostly men. If you’re a woman, you’re always welcome to come, there’s no judgment or anything like that, in fact, the best fighter I know is a woman, so don’t feel intimidated or ashamed if you’re interested in learn something new or trying to progress on your favorite martial art, we are all here to help and support you. Now, for the teenagers, unless you’re interested fighting people who are like 50 pounds heavier than you, then this is the right place for you, take it from a guy in his high school years who’s been here for over a year. Although we can change this situation if more teenagers join. This is without a doubt a good academy worthy of what it has to offer to everyone.
Response: Thanks for the great review Sam!

Beatrice Jin: I have been training at Kogaion for three years. While we train hard, Victor also places a high emphasis on skill development and learning. The jiujitsu and judo teaching is rooted in fundamental principles but techniques are always updated to keep up with the sports which are growing and modernizing. In my opinion this is one of the best places to become a well rounded grappler, where students are proficient on their feet and on the ground, in the gi and without it.
Response: Thanks B 😊

Min Hwangpo: Kogaion is a great environment with friendly people. There is a lot of talent and knowledge in the room. Professor Vasile and coach Jin are detailed in their instruction. Their teachings translate well into competitions. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn or be part of the Judo/BJJ community.
Response: Thank you Steve for being part of the journey!

Ryson Owens: Came here after looking at multiple other gyms and was immediately impressed by the vibe. The students and coaches are friendly, the instruction is top-notch and highly-technical, and there's a great variety of classes to learn every aspect of grappling. 10/10 would join again.
Response: Thanks Ryson! We’re glad to have you on board.

They are very professional and teach respect and self confidence. I highly recommend this school. Plus, they are COVID-19 conscious.

Rob Smith: Having been involved with martial arts prior to being introduced with Full Circle, I had a subconscious expectation all martial arts training being somewhat the same. Any notion I previously had has been far, far exceeded!! The focus on all participants having a high level of moral values, respect for all people as well as respect for martial arts, the intentionality around family/ the spirit of family being a cornerstone of that community and the community at large, the commitment to young people being molded into well-disciplined, respectful, intelligent, strong citizens, all those characteristics and more, have made the Full Circle environment a place that I trust having my family develop, fellowship, and interact on many levels. Great, highly recommended institution!!

Azeb Kinder: When I visited Full Circle in February (2020) , I was apprehensive about taking up martial arts at my age and with no experience. During that first visit everyone was so warm and welcoming, they answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable and confident. I’ve been training with them ever since. Grand Master Scott and the Guros are amazing instructors and it truly feels like family!

Lionel Walker: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueMy experience at Full Circle has been phenomenal! When they say, "Welcome to the family!", it's not just a cliché. They actually mean it! From the top down to the students, everyone is courteous and positive. Full Circle is hands down the best Martial Arts Academy in town!

Diane Cannon: My son have been attending Full Circle Martial Art twice week for a years and he has been doing well. It was a family decision to put my son into martial arts program so he could learn how to protect himself and build up his confidence. Full Circle has met all my expectation for my son. There are professional people work there and a great men and women who are good mentors for young people. I will be looking into summer camp for my daughter. I do recommend this school for any child.

Smooth Rebel: I've been a student at Full Circle Martial Arts Academy for since 2015. I'm glad I attend such a wonderful school. It's more than a school it's my extended family. I love everything about it, the instructions from GM Samuel Scott, my Guros, classmates, and the family atmosphere. We all learn from each other and there is plenty of support on & off the mat. I'm learning discipline, leadership skills, how to defend myself and much more. Since I've been attending I'm more confident, aware of my surroundings, patient, stronger mentality & physically. I recommend my school to everyone that want to defend themselves and their family. You will also build your character. Check us out, you won't regret it!

Valencia Robinson: Awesome place to grow not only in the martial arts but personally! My girls grew up in Full Circle - both Blackbelts - and I've had the opportunity to watch many kids as young as 4 grow and eventually earn their Black belts as well ... Truly a family environment and a school that is actively involved in the community ... Plus the staff, instructors, and owner are genuinely nice! Highly recommend Full Circle as a great choice for martial art training!

Shanietta Muhammad: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueI love Full Circle Martial Arts Academy. From the moment you walk in it feels like family. The instructors are GREAT and the atmosphere is very nurturing. My only regret is not bringing my family there sooner.

Hope Cruz Clark: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueFull Circle is for everyone - young and old, male or female. They do not just teach self-defense, but they also help builds self-esteem and grow leaders. The school is a family atmosphere and the owner consistently gives back to the community. Check them out and I promise that you will be glad that you did.

Capital Aikikai: what do users think?


Doug White: This place is excellent. My 7 year old daughter currently attends the kids classes, my older daughter went here for about seven years, so I've been a 'dojo dad ' for close to ten years now. The Saturday morning kids class is great, the senseis make the lessons inclusive and accessible to all the kids and they make it FUN and engaging for the kids. Comfy couches and camp chairs for all the parents to sit and watch. Quite honestly, half of us parents come for sensei Dave's comedic talents. He has an amazing way with the kids, but so do Tom and Sara. Your kids can come start anytime, attend as many weeks as you want, there's no set course, just pay a very reasonable monthly mat fee, sign a waiver and you're in. Can't recommend highly enough!

Annie Jernigan Goldberg: I trained at this place and decided to move onto karate and TaeKwonDo.I was impressed by the warming atmosphere from the instructors when I entered the dojo. The students welcomed me in and helped me learn techniques. The masters gave lots of attention to their students. Would definitely recommend this place to train.
Response: Thanks for letting others know about your positive experience with us! Hope to see you again sometime.

Matt F: I've been practicing here for over a year and it's been a great experience. The price is very reasonable, the instructors are great. The dojo is spacious, and the class sizes are not too big, not too small. It's also about a 9 minute from Silver Spring Metro. Check it out!

Sarosh Khan: Superb dojo conveniently located near Metro in Silver Spring, MD. In addition to aikido, this is one of the few places in the US where you can get deep training in Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto ryu.

Lucy Thomason: I've been training at this dojo for more than seventeen years. I've been lucky in my aikido tourism both in the U.S. and abroad, but still think Capital Aikikai is one of the best places possible to get a solid martial arts education.

Aleksej Slokvenko: Friendly and professional teachers, warm environment and affordable price. I enjoy it every time I go there.

kenrith vieux: There still open and the people there are great
