    I love this place. This is where I go to do something healthy for myself and relieve the stress of the day. Sensei Matt meets you just as you are. I am a middle aged mom and I fit in here just as well as the teenagers and the grown men. It's a comfortable, supportive, family environment. I highly recommend this dojo.

  • I have over 10 years of martial arts experience, and I've been training here at Crabapple Martial Arts for a year now and I have learned so much, not only in self defense, but training here has helped me grow not just in martial arts abilities but also in my physical fitness and my understanding of what it means to be a true warrior. I absolutely love my time in the dojo with everyone here.

  • James Barrett, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    I've been training under Sensei White and Sensei Neese for 2 years, having trained along side them in the past. I've had the good fortune to watch Sensei White grow from a shodan black belt in karate and jiusitsu into a great teacher who fully embodies what the martial arts are all about. He is a martial SCIENTIST, willing to continually learn and grow his own bushido spirit. He LOVES his kids and teaches them to work hard, helping them build and understand the value of discipline, awareness, control, respect and focus while they are on the mat. He is considerate of each and every student based upon the level of work the put in as well as their own strengths and limitations. A karate or jiujitsu belt earned at Crabapple Martial Arts is just that, EARNED, providing the student with self-confidence in their abilities and their potential. It really does prepare kids (and adults, too!) for "real life."

  • Jenny Turknett, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    Our son has had an overwhelmingly positive experience at Crabapple Martial Arts. Through Sensei Matt's and Sensei Randy's encouragement and direction, he is learning to be self-motivated in progressing through his martial arts studies. He enjoys it immensely and takes great pride in the fact that he has actually earned each belt (instead of them being awarded as a participation trophy). We appreciate that expectations of students are high and they are given the opportunity rise to that level. Highly recommend!

    Sensei Matt is an excellent teacher who connects with children and adults alike, consistently encouraging his students to succeed both on and off the mat. I highly recommend this school and its great new location!

  • Awesome place! I was going through a rough time in my life, just as this academy opened right next door to my job! It couldn't have been a bigger blessing. It is a place I can go into and focus and work just on myself, without judgement or stress. A wonderful environment. I would recommend it to anyone!

  • Anastasia Vogan, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    The adult Karate and Jiu JItsu classes are extremely fun and informative. Every class I am learning or trying something new, and Sensei Matt does an excellent job breaking things down so you can really understand what you are doing and why. After only a few weeks I noticed improvement in not only my abilities, but in my confidence as well!

    Anastasia Vogan
  • Sensei Matt is amazing with kids and he has utmost respect for the craft. He has a great sense of humor that helps kids connect with him right away. He is always on top in communicating with parents. I am 100% positive that no one will ever be disappointed here.

  • Robert Reed, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    I have been training here for 8 going on 9 months. My family members have noticed a dramatic change in my discipline and confidence. The things I have learned from the Senseis is truly amazing. I complete enjoy going and interacting with everyone there. When I show up early I get to see the kids practice and I have even noticed them becoming better at what they are trying to do and better children all around. This place is wonderful, with great teachers who take the time to address your issues with a technique and strive to help you fix these issues. I have personally recommended friends to this establishment and I completely recommend it for anyone who wants to try something new, better themselves mentally and pyshically, or wants to do something that they thought they couldn't. Truly a great place. I thank them for everything they've shown me so far and look forward to more challenges

    If you want to pay your way to get a black belt before your kid turns 10... if you like your kid try everything for 2 months and get a trophy off every single one of them... if you want to wrap your kid in "everything you do is the best and no one can say anything else to you" bubble, then this place may not be for you.

    Otherwise, this is a great place! You got great sensei with great skill and great attention to how the students are learning. You are not just learning how to chop a board but the very fundamentals of why you'd learn it yet never eager to use it. You improves... nobody's perfect... and sensei iterates with you.

    I've brought my kids to other "martial art" place nearby and some of them I'd call them a joke. Here sensei Matt actually keeps an eye on your kid AFTER they walked out of the door and crossing the road; that shows how much he cares for his students not just the tuition fee.

  • Aldon Hughes, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    I've been training here for almost 2 months now in the Adult Jiu-Jitsu program. I was taking Brazilian JJ before, and I must say the lessons here will make one a much more complete fighter. The facility is clean and safe, and the instructors are pros. It's a friendly, respectful environment. I've also watched them work with the kids before my class starts. Really impressed with the natural teaching ability of Sensei's Matt and Randy for the little warriors.

  • Dickson Hand, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    Sensei Matt has been teaching my family for over five years. Both my wife (who has worked very hard to earn her black belt) and my children have benefited immensely from Sensei Matt's teaching over the years. This is not a belt mill. In this discipline, you will not be promoted just for attending, you will work and earn your belts. It will be a challenge that will contribute to your or your child's confidence, self-esteem and ability to defend his or herself should the need arise. Sensei Matt's ability to incorporate discipline, skill and fun for them is invaluable. For my family, the Martial Arts (and Okinawan Shuri-Ryu in particular) is more than just an activity. It is a way of life, combining physical skills, honor, integrity and loyalty that contribute to the overall growth of the individual. I would recommend Sensei Matt and his school, Crabapple Martial Arts, to any parent or adult that would like to bring more of these qualities to their or their children's lives.

  • Holly White, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    I come here for the boot camp and I love it! I also noticed that people who have kids are attending boot camp while their kids are doing karate. Eventually my daughter will be old enough for the karate classes and I can see this being incredibly convenient for us and a great time saver. I recommend this school for anyone looking to involve their kids in an extra curricular program that emphasizes discipline and respect along with adults who want to get in shape themselves. The teachers are very mindful of individual needs and I really look forward to class! Great school!

  • Laura Hand, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    Sensei Matt has been working with me and my kids for several years now. He is truly amazing. He has the ability to reach everyone where they are, physically, mentally, and emotionally, and help us move beyond our status quo to achieve things we never dreamed we could do. He is patient but firm, and will not take “no” or “can’t” for answers. He accepts “I’ll try” and applauds the effort, always continuing to encourage constant forward progress to get his students to the next level. His own cross discipline training adds a depth of knowledge to his instruction that puts things in proper perspective, helping us to see the practical applications of what we’re learning. I highly recommend Sensei Matt White and Crabapple Martial Arts, to anyone wishing to begin, or continue their journey in the martial arts.

  • Courtney Sirotin, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    I have tried to expose my son, who has special needs, to many sports but he has always left them feeling poorly about himself because of his inability to keep up with his peers. Sometimes this has also resulted in behavior problems while trying to participate in a sport. Sensei Matt worked with me before my son ever entered the dojo to understand my child's situation and to prepare for my son's first experiences with karate. Sensei Matt will work with my son privately as well as in the group setting depending on my son's current situation. He is consistent with his high expectations for my son and holds him accountable for his actions in a fair and respectful way while also being fun and approachable. My son ends every session with a "Sensei hug" and clearly loves and appreciates his teacher. That said, my son has been very challenged in the dojo both physically and all the best ways. If I could duplicate this at home 24/7 my son would be in a very good place. I do my best and watch Sensei Matt during his classes and try to take away tips for home. When my son eventually earns promotions he will have so much pride because it will represent his hard work.

  • Guy Sella, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    Place is great. Staff is super friendly, and extremely focused on how to best help the students. You get very personalized attention - something I found missing in other martial arts schools. I'm impressed with Sensei Matt's method of teaching the kids. They learn that fun, manners, and respect can go together. My son has a blast and cannot wait to go. He has dramatically improved self-control, focus, and a "can do" attitude. Not only that but kids actually have to earn (rather than pay $) their belts. Really - my son (9) told me that at his old Dojo he knew he’d just get his belt… this Dojo he has to work to get it. Big deal in teaching kids you have to work for things, they just don’t come to you. Oh, BTW he is proud of having to earn it (greatly improved self esteem). Love the place. Highly recommended.

  • Taylor Long, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. I was in an emotionally dark place, looking for something to pull me up from where I was, and bam. Crabapple MA opened up right next to work. It was literally a blessing. Since I started almost a year ago, I have grown so much as a person. Our Senseis are some of the most amazing instructors, and truly care about your progress, not only in class but in your daily life. Every student is there to learn and have fun, and we all mesh so well. I look forward to going to class every day that I can. It's tough, but it pushes us to go farther and be confident that we can succeed if we put our mind to it. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their lives to be changed for the better!!!

    My son is 6 years old and Loves Crabapple Martial Arts Academy.He has been a student for about 4-5 months.He is feeling more confident in himself since he has started this academy. He thinks Sensei Matt is awesome. I can not wait to see how my son processes in the next couple of months.

    My 14-year-old daughter has been taking classes at Crabapple Martial Arts Academy for about 4 months and she absolutely LOVES it. She comes home from class excited to show us locks and all the other things she has learned. I personally have taken a Women's Self Defense class there from Sensei Matt - he's an awesome instructor! Highly recommend this place!

  • Charlie Cummins, Crabapple Martial Arts Academy Testimonials

    Excellent new facility teaching traditional Japanese Karate and Jiu Jitsu. Sensei Matt is dedicated student and teacher in each of these arts. He is an individual of high character and is a good role model for his students. Sensei Matt is an outstanding teacher of children and adapts his style to meet individual needs. He teaches correct form and application for both martial effectiveness and injury reduction.

    Being a first degree blackbelt, our family knows the dedication it takes to achieve a true blackbelt. We are so thankful for Crabapple Martial Arts and the staff for ensuring each student is ready for the next belt level and not another chain seeking to graduate students quickly to satisfy the customer. Keep up the excellent work!
