Testimonials:

"I started training at MAI nearly 4 years ago as my brother wanted to try kickboxing so I tagged along as I wanted to get fit again as id got quite lazy after finishing playing football and had never really stuck to a regular fitness routine since then. It's the best idea he's ever had! I've loved every minute of training at MAI. Started off training in D15 and now mostly doing classes with Rob. Have done various other classes and seminars with Louise Barry Eddie James and Declan and although each instructor has their own unique approach one things remains constant and that's excellence. I love the variety of the classes and constantly being able to learn new skills while improving fitness. It's an inspiration being able to train with such highly skilled instructors who have achieved so much yet still strive daily for personal improvement, they're enthusiasm is infectious. I'd advise anybody to start training at MAI, with a very friendly supportive environment and great selection of classes you'll improve your fitness and enjoy yourself in the process, it may just be the best decision you ever make!"

If you want to have the craic - fabulous! Either way, you'll get fit and have fun. I can't recommend it enough."

Rachel Armstrong - Symantec Product Specialist

"I have been training at Mai for about 2 and a half years now. I started off training in d15 doing kickboxing and mma just with the goal of improving my fitness. But I quickly found my self down in the club a lot thanks to the friendly environment Mai has. Now I train in both d15 and d7 with rob and Louise. Thanks to the wide varity of class times available including lunch time classes, it's easy to find time to get a good work out in. Thanks to all the help I have received from all the instructors I have noticed a big improvement in my fitness and skill level. After returning to Ireland from living and training in Oz for a year I can say I really did miss the training and crack at Mai so there was no other club I would have wanted to join but Mai. After seeing and training in some top gyms in both Thailand and Austria I can honestly say the environment in Mai is second to none."

Dave Fogarty - Photographer

"I have been training at MAI now for roughly 3 years, started off in Blackrock and moved onto Brunswick Street. So the question any potential member should ask is - "Why should I train there when I am a member of a gym already ?- I am getting enough exercise as it is." Simple answer is that you end up getting Very fit and learning a new skill too, rather than just doing endless and sometimes pointless exercises in a gym. Over time you will notice your energy, fitness and flexibility increasing. The trainers there constantly push all their clients into giving it 100% in training. Also, roughly 70% of the classes are "non-contact" so there is no risk of getting injured. There are light contact sparring classes available also. Everyone has always imagined what it is like to step into a boxing ring. After a few rounds it is difficult to even hold your hands up let alone throw a punch!! Join up now and see for yourself, you wont be disappointed."

Keith Sood - Stone Merchant

"Three months done at MAI. Just want to thank you guys for making it enjoyable and good craic. I'm loving it. By the way, I've now lost just over a stone since I joined in January, which would include putting on a bit of muscle too, so I'm very happy with that. Only problem now is I need to buy new clothes, which of course will then be too big for me in another three months time! Cheers."

Jason Griffin - Bus driver.

 

"Before now, I never exercised and never believed the testimonials from Gyms, but this Fighting Fitness programme is incredible. I successful changed from a person with little energy, no fitness level whatsoever, and hardly any body strength to feeling absolutely transformed both physically and mentally within 4 weeks. I was mentored every step of the way by a dedicated Instructor who gave me the motivation and encouragement to keep going. It is the best programme I have ever done for myself. I can't believe the results".

John O' Brien - Builder

"We want to thank everybody at Martial Arts Inc for the great experience they have allowed us to make in their Studio. When we started organising sporting activities for young people (age 14-23), we soon realised that community groups are not welcome everywhere. Martial Arts Inc has welcomed us with open arms and created a great atmosphere for the 10 week kickboxing course. It was remarkably easy to organise everything with them and the instructors show great motivation and professionalism. The response from the young people was overwhelmingly positive and we decided to extend the course, as we feel it is one of the most valuable things we currently offer to "our" young people."

Joanne Healy - Beautician

"After practicing Karate for 15 years it was a very sad day for me when the club I loved had to close due to unforeseen circumstances. I did an extensive search for a new place to train but nothing came close to the level of teaching, innovation and friendliness I had previously experienced. 5 years ago my search for a new club ended when I met Robert Devane at a martial arts demonstration. From the moment I entered Martial Arts Inc you could feel the energy and positivity coming from both students and instructors alike and I was welcomed like I was an old friend. In the last 5 years I have achieved personal feats that I never thought possible both from a physical as well as mental level which I attribute to the teaching and encouragement I have received from Rob and all the MAI instructors. I can do things now at 37 that I could never do 10 years ago and I honestly believe that this is a direct result of training with Martial Arts Inc. Working in a high pressure job it is very easy to let confidence levels become diminished but I have found that my training with MAI has given me a new found strength and belief in myself to overcome all obstacles. Thank you to Rob and all the MAI instructors for helping me believe that nothing is impossible. "
