What people are saying

Testimonials

The staff at the Steiner Academy are very knowledgeable and confident in their training techniques. From 6 to 60 years old the Steiner Academy is the best choice hands down.

Jim Churray

Knowledgeable instruction in multiple styles of martial arts. Personal attention from an instructor with years of training and teaching. This is a school where advancement and promotion is earned with great pride. Would highly recommended that anyone interested in studying Martial Arts contact the school and see for themselves. Ask about the many forms taught of martial arts one can learn. It is worth the time.

Ken Wagner

My sons have gained self-confidence and maturity as they were taught Kempo Karate at Steiner Academy of Martial Arts. It is a true privilege to practice with the many amazing people who make up the martial arts community at Steiner Academy of Martial Arts.

This is an excellent dojo for families! Sensei Steiner and the instructors here are great teachers for both children and adults.

I trained with Sensei Steiner for most of my teenage years. The knowledge I learned there will stay with me for life!

I have had my kids in Steiner Academy for years. Shawn is an excellent instructor. This is the job he was meant to do. I trust him with teaching my kids, which is the highest recommendation I can give, and would recommend his school to anyone serious about learning self-defense.

Art Provost

I trained with Sensei Steiner most of my teenage years. The knowledge I learned there will stay with me for life. I use much of what I learned every day of my life as there are countless ways to apply the knowledge. Not only did it help me stay in shape, but it has also kept me safe in a few rough situations. Steiner has also become a great business associate of mine. The Academy is a great place to meet like-minded people. Joining his school back when I was 15 yrs old was probably the best thing I could have ever done for myself.

Rob Ruiz

Great school, kid friendly, all the instructors take their time to help kids from different belt ranks to do their techniques correctly, they discipline and mentor the kids and build confidence, and that’s what we want for our kids.

Cy Xayarath

My son has been at Steiner Academy for several years. He has benefited from many of their programs including week night classes, intensive training on weekends and grappling classes. This isn’t just about self defense. It’s also about discipline, self-control and character building. The instructors are attentive to the students and highly skilled at teaching martial arts. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for high quality martial arts school for their child.

Denise B.

As a mother of children in this school and a student here, I appreciate the value of life lessons, hard work and natural consequences that are taught in these classes.

Steiner Academy is the place where quality and price match up.

It is a privilege to practice with the many amazing people who make up the community of martial artists at this dojo. I have learned many things while training in self-defense at the Steiner Academy of Martial Arts. However, none of them come as difficult for me as the physical aspect. I could have many excuses not to try martial arts: I can’t learn physically, my body doesn’t move that way, I’m out of shape, this is too hard, everyone else is better than me and I keep practicing wrong. But there is one reason I have not given up on myself. Training in martial arts at Steiner Academy is many things, but the one most important to me is that I’m not just learning how to conquer an opponent, but I’m learning how to conquer myself, my doubts, my fears and insecurities. Sensei Steiner and the instructors at the Academy believe that they are not only shaping amazing martial artists but amazing people. So no matter your excuse, I encourage you to give Steiner Academy of Martial Arts an opportunity to help you discover your doubts, fears and insecurities because in discovering them you also discover the opportunity to conquer them all.

If you’re looking for a place to learn how to defend yourself, this is the place for adults as well as children. You don’t need to send your children to a special anti-bullying course, it’s included regularly at Steiner AMA. Traditional sports isn’t an avenue for every child, let them burn off energy in a good way. If you’ve experienced other training, sports or karate styles, you’ll see what you’ve been missing. I came from various civilian and military training; I finally found a home at age 52 and I train hard. No egos here, you’ll find friendly, energetic, excited and knowledgeable students and instructors. Techniques are tested not just copied. Walk-in’s welcomed.

MC Flott

Shawn is one of those martial arts-a-holics who spends much time in other arts, and has for a spell. He spars and rolls well, and has established and maintained training relationships and friendships with a lot of guys outside his art. Some kenpo, some kempo, some BJJ, some kyusho, some FMA, etc. Actually has a pretty good smattering of skills under his belt. I’d be glad to have him watching my back in a brawl. In addition to his skills, he’s got a good heart and a fighting spirit where you know if something needs to get done, he’ll step in and do it…and I don’t feel that way about all that many people.

Bounced with lotsa guys with cleaner lineages than Shawn, who ended up standing there or becoming part of the problem in major blow-outs. Despite their training, they couldn’t think. Shawn’s a thinker, and that counts for more to me than lineage. My take, anyways. If I didn’t trust and respect him, I wouldn’t be presenting at his camp. For what it’s worth.

Dave Crouch

My sons have gained self-confidence and maturity as they were taught Kempo Karate at Steiner Academy of Martial Arts. Sensei Steiner has taught our boys for close to 10 years now.   I have to say that a good part of his patience and ability to deal with hard situations are so well developed because of the years training there. He learned that hard work pays off and felt the satisfaction of working towards and earning the belt ranks. My second son is continuing classes for close to 5 years now and is learning that the effort you put forth is directly related to the rewards.

Greg

Great school, kid friendly, all the instructors take their time to help kids from different belt ranks to do their techniques correctly, they discipline and mentor the kids and build confidence, and that’s what we want for our kids.

Cy Xayarath

Sensei Steiner and his instructors are awesome. The first six months both of our daughters (6 & 8) were enrolled and received excellent instruction. Our 6 year old is continuing instruction loving it! Our 8 year old still always wants to go in and say hi even though karate was not for her. They understand that there is not one style to teach and take the time to learn about your child and how they learn. My husband and I have been enrolled in the adult classes for over six months now. Not only is it a great way to get some exercise and training but a good way for us to spend some time together. Steiner Academy of Martial Arts is not just a school but a family. We could not be happier with our experience.

N. Mahoney

Sensei Steiner is an extraordinary instructor. Through his tactfulness he teaches his students honor, respect, and comradery. He is not afraid of learning new things and then passing it on to others that are willing to learn as well.
