What Our Customers Have to Say

SwordFit Bootcamp medicine ball“This is one of the most intriguing martial arts I’ve ever tried, where age, gender, or size has almost no bearing in how good you are. Within a month I noticed an increase in the strength in my legs and arms and a healthy increase in my stamina. Definitely a lot more enjoyable than going to the gym, plus you get to learn a martial art, PLUS you get to use swords!” – Ricardo Tanseco

“I find in order to “work out” I need a challenge, competition, something to keep my mind active and is not repetitive (aka boring). Swordfit fills that requirement completely in my mind which is why coming 4-5 days a week is not a problem for me. It’s fun!” – James Michek

“I can tell you in the two months I’ve been going to classes I’m not just having a lot of fun, but also much more physically fit. Going to class twice a week is my stress reliever and fitness at the same time. Plus, as a first-time martial arts student, I feel a tremendous amount of self confidence and accomplishment in just the short time I’ve been going.” – Tris Hussey
