Calvary Family Martial Arts And Fitness Reviews

  • “Went to YMCA (by my house) since we had a delay with D20 to work out and as I was leaving – one of the managers stopped me and said how good I was looking and the workouts here (meaning the Y) were really paying off. I smiled and said – yes – I get in on occasion here but this body is by CFMA with very insistent instructors! He looked surprised and started laughing at the use of my word ‘insistent’ –

    Anyway – when folks notice I’m getting into shape – I have ya’ll to thank.

    See ya’ll Friday if we don’t have another snow day!”

  • “I have visited four different martial art schools in Colorado Springs. They all were good with that they taught, but The Calvary Family Martial Arts and Fitness has the total package. Master Isaac Costley and his staff are not just instructors but are friends who are really interested in motivating you into being the best you can be, physically, mentally and morally. The Calvary Family Martial Arts and Fitness physical fitness training is among the best in the United States. Their martial arts training is truly reality-based that comes from a traditional background. These techniques are also closely shared with the military bases in their area. Master Costley and his staff have world renowned certification that has stood the test of time. If you really want to be the best… I would definitely recommend this school and their training over anyone else.”

  • “Master C. I have a testimonial for you. Last night while at work I was giving an MP (Military Police) a hand with his baton or ASP because he disassembled it. Just as I put it together another MP was escorting a soldier to our interview room and was taking the handcuffs off but he exposed his weak side and the soldier took his ASP away from him. I heard the MP call for back up and with the baton still in my hand I ran in and the soldier attacked me with a high strike. Without hesitation I blocked it with my ASP, trapped his arm, hit him across the stomach under the arm and ripped the baton out of his hand. Then he was rushed by about 4 other officers. So thanks for the instruction on stick fighting last week. It is still fresh in my mind so all of the movements were smooth and without hesitation.”

  • “We have been taking classes from Calvary Martial Arts and Fitness for the past two years. We love being a part of such a wonderful family. Our two children ages 5 and 7 have learned so much from Master C and Ms. Heather. They have learned a lot about respect of others as well as self-respect. They have grown both mentally and physically and have become stronger people because of their training. We are so thankful to have found such a wonderful place to train with people who truly care about us.”

  • “Over the past two years, Master C has transformed my body and mind into a lean mean machine that has increased my self confidence and has given me the ability to defend myself and my family if I ever need to. CFMA is also family oriented environment where kids and their parents can participate together, and I have seen tremendous confidence and perseverance from my boys as a result of instruction at CFMA.

    Have a good day and thanks for the workout!”

  • “I am a 34 year old married, father of a 5yr old and 4yr old (boy & girl) who is very concerned about their safety as well as my wife – simply for the fact we live in an unpredictable world. I’m also out of shape with poor conditioning after years of sedentary office/computer work. Martial Arts has always been intriguing to me but I’ve never been exposed to it and, at 34, was a bit hesitant to subject myself to something more physically demanding than I could handle. I have been pleasantly surprised by Master Isaac Costley (“Master C”) and Instructor Heather Anderson who have both shown patience and interest in the development of my children as well as my wife and me.

    The Little Dragons class for the children teaches core values such as responsibility, integrity, discipline, attentiveness (just to name a few) coupled with safety, awareness, and self-defense. While true teaching of these values should come from the home, The Little Dragons curriculum reinforces this with reality-based lessons that are exciting and fun for the children. My children look forward to each class!

    My wife and I couldn’t be happier attending our classes MWF – we are getting back into shape while learning how to defend ourselves. I’ve enjoyed a new sense of purpose as I work toward goals and achievements that tend not to exist otherwise in the adult working world. I would recommend Calvary Family Martial Arts & Fitness to anyone looking to improve their health, develop skills they never knew they had, once again enjoy working toward goals, and to begin walking confidently in the real world.

    Thank you Master C and Instructor Heather!

    I’m thankful the Lord has led me and my family to your Dojo.”

    … I have really enjoyed the classes the past few months. There is more variety between the workouts each day, and the instructors have been communicating to each other very efficiently. I appreciate and so does my body. See you Tuesday!”

  • “Calvary Family Martial Arts and Fitness is not just about teaching martial arts, like most martial arts schools we have seen. In addition to the incredible martial arts taught, Calvary Family Martial Arts and Fitness also does a great job at instilling wonderful morals for our boys. My husband and I looked long and hard to find a school that taught not only excellent defense techniques, but also life long knowledge that could be applied to all areas of life. We are so happy that we were able to find such a great school with a phenomenal teacher. Isaac Costley, better known as “Master C”, has been an inspiration to our family. We truly appreciate that he is always willing to help our boys excel in their martial arts skills as well as their life skills. We are always truly amazed at the effort Master C puts into the school to make it a success. We are so proud to be part of Calvary Family Martial Arts and Fitness.”

  • “…Thank you so much for coming to our school! We appreciate all the hard work! The students really enjoyed it!!! They are still talking about all the “cool stuff” they learned! Always a good sign that it left a positive impression….”

  • “Isaac is truly a blessing for my family and we are so glad we have the opportunity to be in his martial arts and fitness program. My son has been in his youth martial arts program for over 2 years now and he’s learning discipline, values, and REAL martial arts training that he can use for self defense, competition, and confidence. His Streetwise self defense program is phenominal and has sigificantly boosted my confidence in defeating potential aggressors.”

  • “My son transferred to Calvary Family Martial Arts and Fitness six months ago……and although leery about what this change would mean for him coming into a new school and for me with the change in dates, time and location it has proved to be a move worth the extra effort. Master C and his team have done a wonderful job in making everyone feel so welcomed and takes a special interest in each child or adult individually, which has meant a lot.

    The children’s Hybrid Hapkido class has proven to be an exceptional program for my eight year old son and he has transitioned very well into it. I am please to know that the training he’s receiving at Calvary Martial Arts and Fitness is preparing him for something far greater than martial arts, but for life.

    Calvary Family Martial Arts has done a great job in ensuring everyone feels just that…..a part of the “family” as they go above and beyond by offering a variety of unique classes where the whole family can participate and in breaking away from the old and exploring new ways to bring the families together thru other activities outside of martial arts and fitness classes.

    So, my leeriness has since grown to thankfulness for Master C and his team for offering the highest quality of martial arts and fitness training in the Colorado Springs area and their dedication to see each person in each class succeed mentally, physically and spiritually.

    Thank you Master C for your selflessness and for pouring into my son your talents and expertise.M

    No fluff, no hype…..thank you.”

  • “Isaac,

    I really wanted to stop and thank you. When I joined your class for the first time last fall, I was actually quite depressed. I was at wits end… just totally down in the dumps. Doing the kickfit class with you and the wonderful group of people you have there really pulled me out of one of the hardest times that I have ever experienced. Can you believe it? You totally saved my mental sanity! Must have been those hamstring exercises :)

    Anyway, I was reminded of that tonight in class when I brought Sarah. She is not a crazy athlete like our friend Ms. Katie, but she is a wonderful person with a great attitude and is also having a hard time in life at the moment. I really encouraged her to come with me to class tonight, and on the way home she was just beaming… she was as happy as I have seen her in weeks. I mean we could start a motto here… “hybrid Hapkido: better than therapy”.

    I really just wanted to use this opportunity to thank you so much for all that you do. Sometimes your class is the only thing I look forward to all day. You are great, so keep it up. Enjoy your trip and I will see you next week. I promise I won’t be missing another class until I graduate.”

  • “Master Costley,

    I had a great time tonight. I was impressed with the techniques I saw. This was a lot closer to what my first TaeKwon-Do school was like then the last two I have attended (one in Washington DC, and USTA here) and that is a bit of the criteria I use to judge, if you don’t mind. Above all, it seemed practical and applicable. *This* to me is what a martial arts class if for, and is actually what I originally thought Taekwondo was all about as well.”

  • “Master C really is an amazing instructor. He takes an effort, not often seen, to show students the importance of integrity, perseverance, and hard work.”

    Justin S.
  • “I have studied the martial arts all over the country and have not met a more qualified or knowledgeable instructor than Isaac.”

    Mike P.
  • “Isaac is an Instructor who truly cares about his students and takes the time to make sure that they know what they need to succeed. You can’t really say which Martial Art is better, but Hybrid Hapkido takes a mixture and gives you the ultimate in Self-Defense.”

    Tod & Phillip H.
  • “Of the martial arts training I have had, Master C’s is definitely the best. This is easily the best class I have ever seen for conditioning, period.”

    Nathan S.
  • “I walked away from a paid up year at another school to train with Master C. It was that obvious that he really knows what he is doing and how to teach!”

    Chad
  • “AWESOME!!!

    We took your class and there is nothing else we can say. It was demanding but very worth it. It is by far the best that we have seen and experienced and VERY AFFORDABLE. Thank you for allowing us to become a part of your family.”

  • “Your time, knowledge and commitment set yourself apart from the others who have ‘trained’ us in the past. I know that I speak for many of those on my team when I say that you have distinguished yourself. I for one will continue to train under you.”
