As a single mother of 4 children (ages 6 thru 14), I was looking for an activity that they all could participate in. We heard about Barrington Tiger Academy from a neighbor and signed up for their trial special. Master Garrison & his team made us feel welcome and took the time to get to know my children. After the first week my kids were in love with martial arts! It's been 6 months now and I can't say enough about what a great program this is. And best of all, my guys are having fun and getting good exercise. I recommend TMA highly to any parent!!

I'm a 54 year old professional in the construction business. Although I stay busy with work, I didn't have any regular exercise routine. I heard about Barrington Tiger Academy from a flyer and decided to give it a shot. Master Garrison recommended the private TNT lessons as my schedule didn't fit normal class hours. After a year of his martial arts training and recommended nutrition plan, I have lost 30 pounds and no longer need blood pressure or cholesterol medications. I feel great and am in the best shape of my life!

We just had to let you know how happy we are with TMA and Master Garrison's martial arts class. Our 4th grade daughter is a bright girl, but also a bit shy. Making friends was difficult for her. One of Mandy's schoolmates (and her only real friend) was a student at TMA. After a guest visit to the school, Mandy wanted to become a student. Now, about a year later, she's a green belt in rank, getting very good grades in school and more confident than we've ever seen. We are glad we made the decision to enroll our daughter at TMA.

I started out in the Women's Cardio Kick-Boxing class with Master Garrison's school 2 years ago. In just weeks I began to lose weight that I had tried unsuccessfully to shed for more than 5 years. About a year ago I signed up for the regular Martial Arts classes. Since then I have learned many self defense techniques and stay in great shape. I have also made new friends with other women in the class. TMA classes are a lot of fun, too!
