A few months ago, I set out to learn self-defense with nothing but the faintest idea of what I was looking for. While I looked at several different establishments, Mr. Nackordís stood out from the beginning. From the start, I felt a member of the family. I was given two, one-on-one lessons as soon as I joined so that I had some idea what I was doing when it came time to start the group classes. I was amazed that everyone in the classes was not only willing but also eager to help me out with anything and everything. I never found myself lacking a partner when it came time for drills; in fact, several different people often sought me out!
There are so many things that I love about taking karate under Mr. Nackord that I couldnít possible cover them all here, so I will just give the highlights. For starters, compared to the other marital arts establishments that I looked at, his is quite large. While at first I was a bit worried about this, today I wouldnít have it any other way. They have classes almost every day, which is wonderful, and they have enough new blood joining all the time that before you know it you will be the one answering questions! I also love Mr. Nackordís approach--he teaches real world self-defense that, while not always pretty is always brutally effective. Also, In addition to learning karate, I have been getting a fantastic work-out. In just three months, I have gotten in better shape than I did while working at a gym for two years.
By far though, the thing that I love the most is what it does to my stress levels. I canít tell you how much I look forward to coming to a lesson after a stressful day. During the lesson, I have no time to think about my problems and by the end, I am to tired to do so, and go home really refreshed and ready to take on a new day.
If you have any questions I highly recommend you call Mr. Nackord; he is always more than happy to help. If you still arenít sure, try giving it a test drive for a month. Honestly, the price really isnít that much when you consider what you are getting access too. Personally, I think that it is a very small investment considering what you are getting in return.
