  • I signed Gabby up at Tri-State for a couple of reasons. The first was that she was being bullied in school and the second was that she was having anger issues stemming from some issues at home. Since starting, she has gained some confidence in standing up to bullies but the biggest change is that she has a much better handle on her anger. At times, when she starts to get really angry about situations that are out of our control she will let it out by working on her training instead of screaming, yelling, and hitting/kicking things around the house.

  • I started training at Tri State around last year to help me in preparation to pursue my career in Law Enforcement.
    The instructors and owner have a wide range of training and experience. With the training I received from this
    location has been a huge attribute to my success in pursuing law enforcement. I feel that it's very important for
    young females to have some type of self-defense background to be able to defend themselves. The instructors are
    great and patient as well as the students. During my time training I have established some great friendships. I
    appreciate everything they have done for me and have gotten me ready for the next chapter of my life

  • Since beginning training at Tristate my son's life has changed quite a bit. He began in 1st grade. He begged to join "karate" something I know nothing about. He tried a few classes and said "Yes mom. This is what I want." Anything for my Buggy. We signed him up, and, of course the honeymoon stage. He loved it. Loved the coaches. Loved his classmates. Then things were getting rocky. He was struggling in school. Fighting with me and my husband to do homework. I almost took him out. His schoolwork can't suffer for an extracurricular activity. I talked to Karen. She had Sifu Jeff meet with me and then me and Chase. After some encouragement and this Mama feeling like she was at the end of her rope, some hope. Chase isn't just a kid who doesn't want to work or read. He has severe double vision. Sifu Jeff continued to encourage Chase through his own struggles. Chase feels so privileged that he and Sifu Jeff share a learning difference. He looks up to Sifu Kasaun and Sifu Aiden. He is happy when they say his name or call him out that he's doing a good job. He started at age 6. He is 10. He struggles with wanting to go to class but each time he goes he feels proud. Each belt he earns makes him strive to the next belt. Our family is incredibly thankful to Sifu Jeff and all the Tristate family. From this Mama: Thank you for all you do. We can't wait to be back in the gym together but am so thankful you have adapted to current conditions.

  • We have been attending Tri State for a number of years now and just love the MMA school. It has helped with my
    sons build confidence, respect, discipline, healthy lifestyle choices and fitness along with an amazing detailed
    martial arts background. The instructors are great with the kids and the owner Jeff is on the mat every day
    working with the children. My son has come a very long way under their guidance and we could not be happier
    with the program. The support staff are amazing as well. It is a great family atmosphere

  • I’ve been coming here for almost 2 years and it’s the first workout I’ve ever done that I truly enjoy. What keeps me coming back is that it’s not only challenging, but it’s fun! Each class is different than the last so it never gets boring. The staff, as well as the students, are so friendly and encouraging, that whatever level you train at, you always feel welcome. Highly recommend.

  • 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!

  • 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

    Our family joined Tristate in early March of this year. My almost 5 year old LOVES going. Once everything shut down, one of our disappointments was him missing out on his new found love of martial arts.. but they didn't take long to kick it into high gear and offer virtual classes as to not let any student miss a beat in their training. In our short time with them, they've been so dedicated in keeping us informed and making us feel welcome. We look forward to continuing to watch our son grow there, even if its through virtual classes for now.

    • 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

    • 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.
