Great place
Hi there, my grandson has been going here for almost a year along with having karate lessons he enjoyed the summer camp with Desai LJ. At this time she is offering a Thanksgiving week to watch your young ones with it filled holiday cheer and absolutely no boredom. Please come and join her and my grandson to have a complete blast over Thanksgiving vacation.

Authentic Krav Maga
I had the opportunity to train at VIP International while visiting from Kentucky. Great instructors. Very knowledgeable and professional. I felt at home there and I highly recommend VIP International for those who want to train authentic Krav Maga.

Best Martial Arts and Krav Maga training center!!!
We enrolled our 2 daughters in VIP's karate class last year. I cannot begin to express how amazing the instructors are here. They are helpful, patient, and caring - they become like your own family! They truly care about what's going on in our children's lives. This isn't just a "come to class" thing and that's all you get... They ask how they are doing at home and at school. They are genuinely interested and concerned. The instructors really treat your kids like they are part of their family. After a few months my husband and I then also joined a class. We signed up for their authentic Krav Maga training classes. This class is the REAL deal. All of the students are amazing and so helpful and encouraging to one another at all levels. The instructors, again, are fantastic and push you just enough to get you to progress at your own pace. No one is ever embarrassed, we all learn from each other and we have fun! This is amazing physical (and mental) conditioning, with practical, useful knowledge of self defense. The classes here are absolutely fantastic, and even their birthday parties for the kids are the best! My daughters had the best time at theirs! Because they love their students, it truly shows in all they do here at VIP, and the kids (and adults) have SO much fun in classes and any seminars or parties there. (Other parents commented to me at their birthday party that they wished the school was closer to where they live so they could check out their classes as well)! Try it, you won't regret it!

Top notch Instructors teaching Real world Self Defense.
I started taking Krav Mags class at VIP International 5 months ago. I had been retired for the last 3.5 years and had not been exercising on a regular basis and now at the age of 52 I had gained weight and my physical fitness level had declined. I also had a few injuries over the years and was unsure if I could train in a martial art again. The first class was a challenge physically for me to finish. As I continued to take classes I noticed my physical fitness level was increasing rapidly. I attribute this to the intensity level of the training and the way these classes are structured. Part of the class is physical conditioning while the other part is learning and drilling the self defense techniques that make up the system of Krav Maga. I had Bern a Police Officer for 25 years and studied other Martial Art systems while serving as a Police Officer. In real life defense situations I found techniques from these systems to be ineffective. The Krav Maga techniques taught at this school and the instructors teaching them make this the most effective self defense system I have encountered. I have found the students to be very supportive and the instructors Top Notch. If you want to learn Real Self Defense this is the place to accomplish that. Helpful?

The buzz
VIP karate is the place to be , my children have changed completely in a matter 3months of being there. I've changed as a parent , watching the instructors there interact with all the students there , not only my own kids , I've gotten so much insight on how to deal with my kids without getting upset. Thank you for all you guys have done for us , we love being in the dojo it's our second home ! Literally lol

Great experience working & dealing with the whole staff
I'm a 40yr old male with 2 young boys, and having them in VIP Karate has been a great character & strength building experience for them. I too have been a part of the Krav maga program for some time, which would include adult men / woman. All of us in the program enjoy the results from a physical fitness aspect as well as learning valuable self defense moves. If you are in search for a solid platform, and great people to work with I highly recommend this company. They do not tip toe around the proper techniques, at the same time they help even the most timid individual grow to be stronger and the masters of their domain so to speak. All the trainers are internationally certified, and anyone can do this, as long as you have the will power to achieve it. The next time you find yourself walking alone in a dark parking garage, or around a scary looking group, think about how nice it would be to know how to protect your self if that situation turns bad, it can happen to Anyone, its up to you to be prepared for it.

Quality Instruction by a Professional Staff
My children just love going to class. They have made great friends and have already shown improvement in their behavioral skills. The instructors at VIP International Krav Maga and Martial Arts Academy even require my children to bring in their report cards for review. My children now understand that martial arts training doesn't end when they leave the dojo. Thanks VIP!
