What Our Clients Are Saying


G. Dubbe

Kevin is an excellent instructor who can tailor the client’s wants and needs!
I have personally seen him work with groups and he worked with me privately.
I took his boxing program and you couldn’t help but notice his multidisciplinary
expertise on Boxing! The Art / Science. He exposed me to Western, Filipino,
Thai and JKD!  It was the Thai and especially the Filipino/ Indonesian that presented
tools that I had not been aware that I had at my disposal…… His patience along with
his lack of ego, make you feel comfortable from the first time you meet the guy.
I highly recommend Kevin to anyone seeking a highly qualified instructor.  Hands Down!

Prof. D. Goldade - Hawaiian Kenpo/Kajukenbo

Kevin is an outstanding martial artist who really knows his stuff.
Many may talk the talk, but few can walk the walk. Kevin Beale
can do both. He is a prime example of a good martial artist, a better
martial arts trainer and a priceless human being. You can’t go wrong
if you have an opportunity to train with him.  Class Act!

C McClenahan - Multiple Black Belt

I have trained with and under Kevin for over 20 yrs. In my travels I have
met very few people, let alone instructors with as much breath and depth
of knowledge as Sifu Kevin Beale. Not only does the guy know his stuff
but he has a unique of breaking it down to it’s most simplest form using
basics.  I can honestly say that I have enjoyed learning from and teaching
with Kevin and that he has contributed to my martial arts growth.

R. Warrick - Warrick K9 Owner/Operator

Prior to my re-location back to PA. I had both the pleasure and opportunity
to train under Kevin Beale. He introduced me to Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai
Arnis, Kempo Ju-Jitsu and Close Quarter Combatives. In my opinion
every woman should take the time to acquire some of these skills. Kevin
Beale is a highly skilled practitioner and a patient instructor. I have personally
observed him training Law Enforcement/ Secret Service, autistic teens and
a very shy 7 year old girl. Mr. Beale brings out the best in all abilities. I highly
recommend training with Kevin Beale.

trainer and coach.
