Training at Tri State has changed my life in many ways. I first started because I wanted to challenge myself. The very first thing Sifu Jeff has taught me is to don't try to fit into the art, make the art fit you and I've been applying that to every aspect of my life. Even before starting Tri State, I was already athletic but the training has pushed me even further. Another thing I've learned is to stay calm under pressure and focusing more on learning and having fun with the process instead of the end result. Also it's helped me become more confident and I'm eager to challenge myself whether it's physically or mentally. Thank you Sifu Jeff and everyone else who's helped me along the way.

Myself and my 5 children just started training here and we all love it. Family friendly environment. Great from the front desk, management and the owner. Instructor's are top notch and very well rounded in their craft. Children as young as 5 years old to adults can come and feel comfortable and not be intimidated at any skill level. I also have two special needs children and Tri State has made a positive impact on them in a short time. Very thankful for Jeff and his team feeling part of the Tri State family

I started at Tri State back in the Spring of 2015. I had done martial arts as a kid, and grew up around it since my father was competing/teaching/judging TKD, but I decided to focus more on dance instead. Well, I fell back in love with it after my intro session! Martial arts is very similar to dance, in that it has the perfect balance of structure (footwork, coordination, remembering combos) and freedom (finding your style, flowing with your partner, and experimenting... the "art" part). PLUS hitting stuff is fun! Tri State is also a pretty special school because it only attracts really genuine, humble, hard-working people; no big ego's or foul language here! I am so appreciative for everything I have learned, the friends I have made, and the calories I have burned. Thank you to Ajarn Jeff Jones, Sifu Kasaun Tramel and Sifu Aiden Sharkey; although I miss punching my friends in the face, you guys are absolutely CRUSHING IT on Zoom!

My martial arts journey started when I was 19 years old in the fall of 2009, 6 years before I joined Tri State Mixed Martial Arts. In the years leading up to me finding martial arts, I struggeld with dyslexia and my mental health. In school, I was bullied profusely and would often miss weeks of school at a time. In my Jr. Year in high school, life took a sharp turn. At that moment I realized I did not like the person I was. I made a choice to do... to be better. Martial Arts saved my life. In February 2016, I joined Tri State. The moment I walked through those doors I knew this school was something special! I was in awe at the professionalism of the staff, the culture, and the school as a whole. I joined that day! After some time training at Tri State, Sifu Jeff offered me a position as an assistant instructor. It has been such an honor teaching. Teaching was very new to me and I was a bit nervous at first. Sifu Jeff gave me a gift to help kids, the kind of help I wish I had when I was their age. My hope is to be a positive influence to others the way Sifu Jeff has been to me. Tri State is home!

Takeo has matured, increased in self discipline, and grown his knowledge of Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu ahead of our expectation. Since his start in the program it has aided in grooming him to put in hard work and see the reward for his determination and application...

Best Martial Arts school around. Our daughter has been training there for almost 7 years. The respect, discipline and skills she has learned there are immeasurable. She received her 2nd degree Black Belt in the children's program and now trains in the adult program. She is a member of the BBC and is an instructor also. I cannot say enough about Jeff and the entire Tri State family. That is what they are, family.

Our decision to sign Ryan up for training at Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts was twofold: First, because Ryan suffers with a disorder; ADHD, and unfortunately in today's society there are still people who label or discriminate against people suffering from this disorder. As a result.....you guessed it. Ryan was being bullied by kids, because he was different, he didn't fit into the "norm". So we embarked on a new journey, and started having Ryan train in Martial Arts, not only to improve his self-confidence, but also give him a purpose. Since his training, Ryan has become more confident, he has learned more self-control and focus. And he has realized that if he puts in the time and effort into anything he works at and gives it his best ....hard work pays off!! Winners never quit and Quitters never win.

Kasaun Tramel

Since training at Tri-State I can say that my life has completely changed. My reason for training was because of the “freshmen 15” in college. Being athletic my whole life I needed to find something to get into after my freshmen year at college I wasn’t doing anything except eating and watching tv My mom also passed 2 months before joining the school and training at the gym helped deal with everything that comes with that (exactly like Sifu Aiden). Since joining I have found a career that I love doing and a passion in life I never knew I had. It was the best choice I ever made walking into those doors (a different set of doors since he switched schools ) 7 years ago. Funny enough it’s been exactly 7 years I’ve been training under Ajarn Jeff. Thank you to everyone who has came into Tri-State because all of you impacted my life in a major way and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. And Thank you to Ajarn Jeff for changing my life in the best way possible

This place is absolutely amazing. Been going for about 8 weeks now and it was the best decision I've made. The instructors and the owner Jeff genuinely care about each and every student and want to see them all succeed. They make you feel at home right away and the respect for martial arts as a whole is evident as soon as you walk in the building. Regardless of your skill level, you can find a class that suits you. Tri state not only offers a family friendly environment but also gives you an opportunity to train along side some extremely talented Brazilian JiuJitsu and Muay Thai practitioners/competitors. If you're interested in truly learning the fundamentals and foundations of martial arts, look no further.

I have been working out at Tri State for about 5 years, I started this journey a bit later in life, it's been a bit of a challenge however pushing through the challenges is very rewarding. Someone once asked "When is a good time to plant a tree?" A year ago? Kinda tough to go back and do it if you haven't already A year from now? I will probably forget about it by then

I started training at Tri State in November 2017 so its almost going on 3 years this November. I have changed in a way that I am more confident and self assured of myself. I am more motivated than I was before I started. I have gotten a lot faster and stronger since starting my martial arts journey. Also I have dropped a lot of weight and making better choices for myself. Finally most importantly I have gained and developed self discipline since starting and I am more focused than before. I have a clear path and direction I want to be on. That is how I have changed since coming to Tri State.
