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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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... 👍🏿
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.
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.💪
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.
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’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.
