The adult Karate and kickboxing classes have been a great addition to my weekly routine. I am learning self-defense as well as meeting great people and gaining confidence while getting into great physical condition. Sensei Murphy is a knowledgeable instructor and explains things well while demonstrating techniques. I highly recommend Glens Falls Karate Academy.
The adult class is a really great and supportive group to learn with! Not only is Sensei Murphy awesome, but the other dojo members really go out of their way to make it a welcoming atmosphere. The self defense part of the training is my favorite! Having the ability to dissect the moves and practice them weekly makes me feel more confident in my everyday life.
Our son goes to Glens Falls Karate Academy. They are very welcoming and have a great program. The Sensei is amazing with children!
I love classes at Glens Falls Karate Academy! We're one big family who help each other succeed! Sensei Chris Murphy and Senpai Joe Traina are excellent teachers! They are thorough in their training and have a passion to share their love of karate with their students!
Sensei Murphy is patient and encouraging. He is sincere and giving of his time. Karate is such an incredible sport. It teaches you control, focus, & balance - physically and mentally. It stimulates your mind because you have to think about the strategies. What's interesting about this sport is that it is more about the skills and the techniques and applying them correctly, than your physical size.
I've have known Chris Murphy for several years and he is a wonderful man. His teaching style not only teaches the art of Karate, but he teaches the children pride, respect of self and others and hard work.
Chris really knows his stuff, and is such a nice guy too. He's a great teacher! We are lucky to have him in our community.
We love karate, Sensei and Miss Stacey. What a wonderful program to be a part of. My son looks forward to karate each week.
I'm in the Tuesday/Thursday adult class and I love it can't wait to continue learning I always look forward to the next class
Had the pleasure of giving a seminar there this weekend....Sensei Murphy should be very proud. He runs a top notch school with a bunch of talented students. I am very proud to have him represent us as his governing organization. Shihan Jim Peterson 8th Degree Black Belt Vice President of the Goshin Ryu Karate Assn.
I had my first lesson in Goshin Ryu Karate on 1/12/2015. Even though I have a martial arts background myself in both Jiu-Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do, I found Sensei Murphy's class to be fantastic. It was amazing to work on my sparring skills with such a knowledgeable instructor as him. I am very much looking forward to continuing my training with him.
My son was looking for a new athletic activity this past Spring and decided to try karate. I couldn't be happier with Glens Falls Karate Academy, and the positive influence Sensei Murphy has had on my son. It's a great program for athletes of all abilities. Great place!
My daughter has been a student here for years and I would highly recommend this school to anyome looking to learn new martial arts and not be like every other martial arts school in the area! Chris is a great teacher and leader to these kids. They offer adult classes too, Come try a class and make your own opinion.
My daughter started a few months ago and has enjoyed the challenges, friendships, structure, community and education that sensei Chris Murphy provides. There is never a moment she isn't excited to go to class! As a parent I have noticed the difference in my child's focus, attitude and confidence not only about herself but in what she is doing as well!! Thank you sensei!!!
