“We joined because we'd heard many parents mention the quality of the instruction at The Edge, and that they've tried several schools, but they don't compare.”
“A Top School in the Nation! I've been to several Martial Arts schools, and nowhere have I found the training experience as good as it is at The Edge. The classes are fun, and give you the skills you need to defend yourself in any situation. I spent years training with Master Nathan Thorn and consider myself extremely fortunate. He gave me confidence to succeed, not just as a fighter, but in real life. Job interviews and social situations are a cakewalk after the training I went through with Master Thorn. I would put my reputation behind this man and his school. Whether you want to simply get in the best shape of your life, become a world fighting champion, or learn how to be someone your friends and family look up to, The Edge is the place to do it!”
