Our sons have been training at Steiner Academy of martial Art for a year, they learn discipline and self control, they work hard and gain so much confidence, they absolutely love it here!! Thank you Sensei and all the instructors!!!
My 6yo daughter started taking karate lessons this month at Steiner AMA and we couldn’t be more happy. I was blown away by the support and encouragement she received from other students in the class (some many years older than her). She is not only learning martial arts but also valuable life lessons. Best. Place. Ever!!!
Searched for Martial Arts schools, training and education in the past. Didn’t find any that met my expectations for practical training until I came here. Been here for 4.5 years. I still drop into other Dojos to see what and how they are training. Steiner Academy of Martial Arts is the foundation into which I build my martial arts house upon.
My daughter takes classes here. I would send her no where else. Sensei Steiner is amazing with kids. He is gentle and stern all at the same time. He has helped her with test anxiety, dealing with all kinds of stress, and emotions. She has a goal of being a black belt she loves it so much.
I’ve watched my daughter train here for a couple years, and am now a student myself. Sensei Steiner and the instructor staff know their stuff, and help you push yourself past what you think your boundaries are. Beginners are encouraged.
The Steiner Academy of Martial Arts has been an extremely positive influence in the development of my young children. In the last year their discipline, self control and self-confidence have made tremendous gains. Sensei Steiner shows amazing patience with these children and makes learning fun. They can’t wait to go to class each week. I recommend this dojo to all students and parents.
Steiner Martial Arts Academy is a amazing example of what a martial arts school should be. Unlike the corporate run schools where profits and a watered down curriculum that are easy to digest and structured to empty parents pockets, this academy is run and taught by Steiner himself “mom and pop style”. Steiner knows every student on a personal level. He knows their strengths and weaknesses and is constantly tailoring their experience to help them develop as an individual. Some students need help with being timid, some with attention and focus, some with determination, essentially he helps them all reach their balanced maximum potential. Sounds too good to be true? I was skeptical at first too…but both me and my 6 yo son and I are students there, and I assure you this school is a precious rare find. The skills trained there are a mix of the traditional and the practical…designed to prepare you for self defense and help you develop your inner strength and character. If you have ever considered martial arts for your child or yourself I’d suggest you check out this school, Old World “mom and pop” style businesses are slowly disappearing …don’t miss out on this one.
We have been attending SAMA for over five years. Sensei Steiner and his instructors are awesome. The first six months both of my daughters (6 & 8 at the time) were enrolled and received excellent instruction. Our 6 year old is now 11 and she loves! My middle daughter still always wants to go in and say hi even though she decided karate was not for her. The Instructors understand that there is not one style to teach and take the time to learn about your child and how they learn.
I have been enrolled in the adult classes for 5 years. Not only is it a great way to get some exercise and training. I starting thinking I’d take it for fun and have discovered that I love the styles and programs they provide.
Steiner Academy of Martial Arts is not just a school but a family. We could not be happier with our experience.
The instructors at Steiner Academy of Martial Arts provide top notch training for the entire family. The training is entirely self defense centered and not just strict stylized martial arts teaching. It doesn’t matter if you have previous experience or have never trained before SAMA has something for everyone. If you’re looking for a great place to train my family & I highly recommend Steiner Academy of Martial Arts.
I joined Steiner Academy of Martial Arts in April. Being a 36 year old female with very little athletic ability, I was apprehensive about joining a martial arts program. When I called, I was assured that I would be able to learn. I visited for one session and decided to join.
It was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I have learned many lessons about self defense, but the lessons I have learned about surpassing my expectations of myself have been greater in number and in scope. Sensei Steiner and the other instructors have been there for me every step of the way.
Steiner Academy of Martial Arts has not only changed my view of myself, but it has also made me a more confident person. Sensei Steiner’s teachings have enabled me to go above and beyond what I believed were my limitations. My intentions were to learn more about self defense. What I have received in return is a better way of life. Come to the dojo, and you will see what I mean. RJ
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.
Steiner Sensei is one of the most knowledgeable and professional instructors I have ever had the chance to work with. While maintaining a well recognized business and professional presence he still maintains a friendly and personal atmosphere in the school. This is a rare combination in the martial arts world. As a parent and life time adult martial artist I highly recommend Steiner Academy of Martial Arts!
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.
Went to my first women’s self-defense class yesterday. Although the other women were bigger and stronger than me, nobody punched as hard as she could. We sparred with gloves and helmets, learning both defense and offense. We also covered using a kubaton. A lot of scenarios that might actually occur in real life were discussed. It was great! Kudos to Sensei Steiner and his women’s group. I’ll be back.
My son has been here since he was about 4 years old. Now he is almost 16. Love it!
My son has been going here for about a year know and it has really given him a boost of confidence and has let him shine. We have tried for years to find a sport that he likes and he loves taking this karate class! At times I think it is a little aggressive but that is what my son loves about! All of the instructors are very nice and take the extra steps to make great students!
