I visited Boston on a training course for a couple of weeks and while I was there I worked out at TAJ every day. Sensei Nick is a fantastic professor and Loves what he does. You can tell by the respect he earns in his dojo and the way he treats his students. I've been an instructor of Martial Arts for many years and I love when I find a teacher that has so much enthusiasm for his lifestyle. Theodorou Academy gets my vote hands down.

Sensei Nick is a great instructor, teaches all abilities effectively and is especially good with students who have some physical limitation.

You won't find anything better than this- more fun- more awe inspiring, more social, more co-ed, with rigorous physicality, and mental challenge.

I love going to TAJ. I've learned practical skills for self-defense, made friends, and improved my overall well-being. Sensei Nick is fantastic and the black belts are very helpful!

I find this to be the best martial arts school in the area I have checked out a few in the area this was a perfect fit for me when you are a slow learner and no confidence Sensei nick makes you overcome all of that. that's why he and his instructors are the best in the area. give this school a try and you will not be disappointed.
