  • I have been with Sifu Jeff for about 11 years, coming up on 12 years this summer. I have dealt with many problems since going to Tri-State. I Had weighed in at over 340 pounds at one point in my life, and if it weren’t for sifu Jeff’s positive inspiration, I probably wouldn’t have done it. Sifu Jeff had taught me to be the best that I can be, and to push myself to better myself and I did exactly that. I have lost over 160 pounds thanks to Sifu Jeff’s motivation and inspiration. Tri-State has helped me through many problems, one of which was my mom passing away. My mom had passed away in my freshmen year of high school ( I’m a junior now ) and sifu Jeff and everyone at tri-state was willing to help. Tri-State had organized a food donation to help with my families recent loss. Sifu Jeff had also organized a gofund me page for my family as well. Sifu Jeff and everyone at Tri-State has helped me out dramatically, regarding both my weight, and the passing of my mom. My changes since I’ve been at Tri state have been drastic changes, but I had been supported by both sifu Jeff and everyone at Tri-State. 

    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.

    • 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.

    • 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

    • I am so pleased with Tri State. My family were members a few years ago and moved to a different state. Since starting the online classes my kids were able to join the classes. They were excited to see old friends and teachers. The staff is so helpful and cares about the students. I’m thankful to Jeff for giving us this opportunity all the way across the country.

    • 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.

    • What an amazing school!

    • 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

    • 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.

    • 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.💪

    • 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!
