I learned early, what was generally accepted to be ‘correct’ practices …. in real life didn’t always work well. Not only the techniques but the instructional methods often also seemed inadequate.
This led me to constantly question and examine all methods.
For years I was on a quest to learn what truly worked and which techniques and methods would transfer well to my students.
I tested and retested skills, strategies and techniques in the ring, on the mat, and in Law Enforcement/Security work.
I’ve spent my entire life dedicated to learning and practicing different Martial Arts and discovering the best way to teach these skills.
I began my first school over 3 decades ago and am proud to have taught thousands of happy, successful students. Along the way, I’ve trained many champions, both Male and Female in Muay Thai, Kickboxing and Boxing.
My focus continues to be on developing ’Best Practices’ and creating an highly effective Framework for learning. These many years of training and teaching has helped me develop the Unique Approach we use in my schools today and helped me form Modern Muay Thai, the proprietary methodology I’ve developed to help students learn and progress.
My schools are considered by many to be the biggest and most successful of their type and we believe, as do others, our program is the best in the U.S.

Physical Benefits of our Martial Arts Training
It seems the entire World is now trying to emulate fighters.
We often teach personal fitness trainers, former Cross-trainers and ex-athletes of all kinds. They come to us to achieve that symmetrical and muscled physique fighters are famous for.
In our class you’ll burn fat, build muscle and shred inches!
In fact, Our training works every muscle in your body from head to toe. You’ll get toned legs, strong abs and develop a lean muscled physique. Students improve their stamina, strengthen their Core and increase Flexibility all in the same session. Training with us is highly time-effecient.
Some students want to drop only a few pounds, tone up, and maintain their new shape…. (an understandable approach when research shows the average person is gaining 7-12 lbs of fat per year) Others want to ‘push it’……
Whether you want to be totally ripped or just healthy and proud, either way our Instructors will help you reach your goals. If your progress slows, they know how to help you past sticking points. Our instructors have experience cutting weight and preparing for their own Championship fights and know the best methods to build strength and stamina and how to ‘cycle’ the training for best results.
It doesn’t seem to take long before most students slim down, get stronger and need better fitting clothes. It’s often their friends and family whom first notice their new confidence and how fit they’ve become.
It’s nearly impossible to ‘outwork’ our training. As a students skills increase they naturally go faster and add intensity and unlike sports, we have no downtime, no waiting around and no lulls. You’ll be mentally engaged and physically working from beginning to end.
Our Martial Arts greatly improves coordination allowing students to become better overall athletes and achieve a symmetry in motion they never had before.
In my Martial Arts School
Students don’t force themselves to ‘exercise’ – they’re excited to TRAIN. They enjoy learning so much they aren’t conscious of how hard they’re working. We’ve been helping students achieve their fitness goals for decades. Our approach and methods are proven successful.
And while getting into shape, our students learn practical Self-Defense skills which last a lifetime.

Kickboxing Near Me
What often passes as Kickboxing is in reality, only an exercise class. Sometimes offered with bags or a circuit of equipment and some with a supposed ‘trainer’ holding pads. Franchises, karate schools and poor quality wannabe schools abound. Once you understand what real training is you’ll realize the ‘others’ are simply imitators, selling the ‘sizzle’ with no ‘steak’.
Our Martial Arts training works because it’s REAL.
You won’t reach your goal unless you stick with training and you won’t maintain your new shape if you don’t continue to train. You need constant growth (multiple levels), personal attention and professional instruction.
We keep students motivated year after year and build them physically and mentally, impacting their entire life.
Martial Arts isn’t just about the body
A healthy body is important, but it’s important your Mind and body work together. We train the Mind as well as the body.
Doctors warn stress damages our health, both mental and physical: Our students relieve daily stress and pressures with every session. They often comment attending class is like having a mini-vacation. In today’s hectic life, training with us provides peace of mind.
In addition to managing stress, our training will build your Inner Strength.
Your confidence and self-image affects every aspect of your life: Your career, mental health and relationships are all directly affected by how see yourself. Martial Arts Training builds confidence and is also well known to develop focus, concentration and self-control. These traits along with a new tenacity and greater patience gives our students a huge competitive advantage in the world.
The lessons you learn in Martial Arts benefit you throughout life. As a parent you’ll model patience and self-discipline to your children and when dealing with other adults you’ll project a new strength, sense of calm and self-assuredness.
Other activities may improve your fitness physically for a while, but only our Martial Arts training will improve you Physically and Mentally, improving the quality of your entire life!

Hopefully, you’ll never need Self-Defense.
But if you do, choosing us will be the smartest thing you ever did. With our history of champions and decades of experience you can be confident you’re receiving quality instruction.
Our training is Authentic.
We teach you proper techniques, strategies and tactics. The same skills our Champions use to win Title belts. In Our Martial Arts School, Self-Defense Classes aren’t just punching and kicking. We’ll teach you the best Arts and help you discover what will work for you.
Our Instructors teach students to avoid dangerous situations, to be aware and Street Smart. They learn how to deescalate a situation and how to achieve the proper Mindset for defense.
However, when a situation can’t be avoided its important the skills learned are effective.
Self-Defense is never a competition on equal terms. In real life you don’t get to pick the circumstances. You may have to defend against weapons or face a much larger opponent. Oftentimes there are multiple opponents (estimated 40% of all attacks are by multiple perpetrators)
You could be in cramped areas like a stairwell or between parked cars. You may have to defend someone else (a child or spouse) while (at the same time) defending yourself. Learning to fight from the ground is also needed.
You need a complete system: A comprehensive approach utilizing different arts and skills customized to fit each individual.
Having dedicated my entire life to studying different Martial Arts and testing these Arts, I’ve discovered what REALLY works and have created a one-of-a-kind TOTAL style.
THE SMART CHOICE
My curriculum consist of…..
Modern Muay Thai: Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Karate, Lethwei, Boxing & More
Fight Dynamics: Jui-Jitsu, Krav Maga, Weapons, Aikido & More
In effect our students get 4 schools in one:
The Striking of Muay Thai, Boxing, Kickboxing and Karate.
The Grappling of Jui-Jitsu and Judo.
The Throws and Joint Attacks of Aikido
The Defensive Tactics of Krav Maga.
Students also learn elements of other Arts and how to use weapons.
Our Training represents the pinnacle of Martial Arts and Self-Defense.
These programs aren’t a disorganized jumble. They’re highly evolved: I’ve eliminated all unnecessary elements and ensured the skills integrate with one another seamlessly.
Furthermore I’ve refined the order in which they should be taught, making for an easy step-by-step process.
Both programs are licensed and available only at my schools.
You can be sure this system is effective. It’s the same skills my competitors use to win Championship titles and has been the choice of law enforcement officers, security professionals, civilians, and elite military personnel who may pick any school they wish.
They choose Sarkine’s Total Warrior because it is…. the Total Solution.

Mixed Martial Arts
If you’re interested in Mixed Martial Arts you may find our Martial Arts Academy a good fit. You’ll learn many of the same skills.
Mixed Martial Arts is a SPORT: A one-on-one contest featuring the same sized, unarmed opponents inside a padded ring with extensive rules. There are corner men, referees and judges to control the action and ensure a degree of safety. But in real self-defense you can’t tap out and try it another time.
It’s important Students learn our Total Warrior System before adjusting to a one-on-one contest.
We stress Teamwork, Safety and Camaradarie
Other schools are dojo dungeons: Dirty, Foul-smelling and filled with Tough-guys and punks. While in todays world that may be typical, we’re nothing like that.
Our Schools are custom built and feature inspiring decor. They are cleaned daily and are large, airy, well-equipped and feature top-of-the-line bags, rings and mats. And most importantly….. We believe in a treating others the way you would like to be treated.

Despite the varied backgrounds of our students, they share similar traits. They’re positive, fun-loving and adventurous. Our students focus on being partners….not adversaries.

We’ve trained more Champions than all others in the region, combined.
In fact, we are the ONLY school in the state that has produced multiple Major Tournament Champions, both Male and Female, for Decades. We accomplish this with a step-by-step personal approach and experienced coaching – Not Ring Wars and Concussions.
Most students train for the awesome fitness results, practical self-defense skills, regular stress-relief and the improvements in Self-Confidence and Pride. They also love the camaraderie of working with like-minded teammates and making new friends. Only some compete, but ALL our trained to become their best.
