In-school Testimonials


Pam – “I just wanted to pass on to you how impressed I am with young Ryan, who teaches the kickboxing portions of the morning (EARLY! morning) classes in Edmonds. He’s so supportive, encouraging, positive and kind. I look forward to the class in part just because I know that no matter how incompetent I may be or how slow I may be or how imperfect I may be, he’ll be there with a positive attitude cheering me on and helping me improve.”


Miki – “The class has helped me to sleep better at night, feel healthier and stronger overall and gives me more energy throughout the day. I waited 2 years to take this class, now I wish I hadn’t waited.”


Amy – “My husband and I do this together and it’s great bonding. All our friends are intrigued by what we do after work during the week. Little do they know the fun we’re having!! And the results I am getting, along with a healthy diet, are amazing!!”



tony g. – “Simply put, the 10 week body sculpt class will kick your” … “and you will want more.” … “I joined the 10 week body scupt class not quite knowing what to expect. For one hour a day, five days a week for 10 weeks you really push your body to the limits. During the class you are cursing at yourself wondering why the hell you are here then at the end of class and during the day you feel proud.”


Jennifer R. – “The instructors are motivating, the gym is no drama or egos allowed, and the punching and kicking make me happy! I’ve never felt so sure that I was going to accomplish all that I had set out to do. This gym changed my life and I can’t thank them enough.”


Shannon s. – “If youre like me, and you haven’t been able to start and keep a fitness routine, MKG can help, and if anything get you kick started. Or you never know, you might be like me, and end up wanting to sign up for session after session because its the most productive thing you do with your day.”


Judy’s Book


Erica D. – BODY SCULPT FOR ALL, really! – “MKG should stand for Masterful Kinetic Geniuses…this community of MKG’s are so supportive and enthusiastic about you reaching your personal goals, that they have designed a class that allows you to get rid of the stress of your day, shed pounds/body fat, and get in shape, all while having FUN! Never would I have thought to join a studio for Martial Arts…too intimidating for me, a virtual non-athlete, and never would I think that I could work so hard, and never look at the clock. I have loved this class so much, and had such great results, that I recruited my mom! My favorite result is that I can now keep up with my kids when we hike and cross-country ski, and it’s so much more enjoyable!”


gretchen z. – Fun and Effective – the BEST CLASS EVER – “…for the first time in my life I actually enjoy working out. I feel really good (physically and mentally), can see and feel changes in my body, and am disappointed when I have to miss a day.” … “The workouts also support a variety of fitness levels – there are people in the class who are getting into shape for the first time in their lives and people who are really strong and already in great shape. Although more expensive than a gym membership, what you get out of the class far outweighs the cost (plus, unlike a gym, you’ll probably actually go).”


T J. – MKG Class – “They have boosted my self-confidence tremendously by pushing me to achieve what seemed impossible at first. My body feels toner and I have more energy.”


Miki M. – “Don’t wait to sign up!” – “Good: The instructors really know what fitness is all about and how to guide each member into doing the exercises correctly. It is obvious how much they care and love working at MKG with their unique style.”


Kelly P. – MKG Body Sculpt Challenge – “I LOVE the diversity of the classes and haven’t missed a single day, which is a big feat considering I have had to get up at 6am every morning. The cardio classes are exciting and challenging and I also enjoy the stress release that is involved with physically hitting, punching, kneeing, kicking your way through exercise. I feel strong and powerful after each session.”


King5 – The Best of Western Washington


Kiwinkim – “I love this school! This is the first program in all of my 50 years that I have been able to stick with because it’s so fun and challenging. I’m hooked!”


cynthia h – “MKG’s body sculpt is by far the most effective fitness program I’ve ever experienced. The classes are intense and fun, with a down to earth non-competitive environment.”


Hanan – “The instructors are absolutely amazing. I have tried numerous workout facilities, but this one stands out above all the rest.”


AlikaDad – Kicks It – “The instruction is tailored to your individual needs. The instructors have the ability to push you when you think you can’t go on but not so hard that you can’t go on. All the instructors make the class fun.”

From the International Examiner – The Journal of Northwest Asian American Communities – Feb. 18 – Mar. 2, 2004 – “This display of art, tradition and mental and physical ability seems to symbolize what martial arts training is all about.”


Testimonials From Students and Visitors


Tyler – “First I would like to thank you and everyone at MKG for opening my eyes to how truly amazing the martial arts can be.”


“You have the nicest students I’ve ever met in a club anywhere.”


“I liked the mix of new and advanced students as well as the laid-back atmosphere: it was a very comfortable environment.”


I liked, “The wide range of styles and techniques offered. I also benefited from the focus on conditioning. Every class. I could feel my stamina improving.”




I like the… “Relaxed class structure, BJJ and Muay Thai, info about seminars for many different arts, school attracts less macho/egoists.”




Jason T. – “The staff over at MKG recommend that you start with the mixed arts class. It’s an hour long buffet of exercises and techniques offered most days in day and evening classes. The first one I went too turned me into a runny stain on the floor. I knew I was un-coordinated, but not that un-coordinated. I knew I lacked stamina, but not that much stamina, etc. Then the amazing thing happened: I started to get better. This is why MKG works. The staff works on developing core attributes by getting you to focus on what your body is doing. Want to develop stamina; do triple kicks for two-minutes. After some classes I would walk out into the cool evening drenched in sweat and shaky limbed from exertion and seriously felt that I had accomplished something. ”


Gary T. – “This is a great martial arts gym. They do a mixture of different styles and have legitimate credentials in everything they teach. You can really see this in the quality of the instruction.”

Rick M. – “If you have ever been interested in trying out some form of martial arts but have been overwhelmed by the vast number of disciplines or intimidated by the possibility of stepping into a room full of blood splattered cage fighters, MKG is a great place to quell the anxiety.
