I started at Vanyo Martial Arts years ago in the Tae Kwon Do program. Now, 11+ years later, I participate in both Tae Kwon Do and the Muay Thai Mixed MMA class. With my personal experience, the Army often relocates me, and I have trained with different schools all over the US as well as conducted certifications within the Army Combatives Program. I have not found a school that is able to match the expertise and wealth of knowledge that Master Vanyo has. No other class leaves me physically drained, and mentally invigorated like his classes do. Every day I watch myself and those students around me grow, and it is an awesome sight. Another thing, belts here are not handed out like a factory. Master Vanyo ensures that we know our stuff before each test, and every belt is hard-earned. He, and his black belts, take the time to cultivate the new students, growing them into disciplined and hard working martial artists. I know that I feel a real sense of accomplishment every time I am handed a new rank. Hi highly suggest this school to anyone looking for a martial arts home. The Vanyo’s will treat you like family. They also have special programs for students with special needs. It is a loving school that truly cares for each student and their personal progression. I look forward to seeing you there!
