"I have used many of the techniques you teach at work. The scenario training has helped me prepare for things that happen while on duty."

"If you want to learn self defense train here. You have always showed me how to be better. I think you teach a lot more than just Hapkido, I think you teach mixed martial arts without rules. "

"Lucas is a fantastic instructor, he is a great person and has extensive real life self defense experience."

"Your not like other places, they worry more about money. I get a great work out and I learn more every day. Its obvious that you enjoy teaching and you treat everyone with respect. You work with each person and I hope you never change. Allowing us to learn at our own pace does not hold us back. "
