My experience at Florez Martial Arts has been above and beyond my expectations. Affordability, smaller classes and individualized attention have meant truly learning the skills being taught. I definitely recommend it.

Sabomnim Florez.

He is more than just an instructor, who gives my son knowledge in Martial Arts.
He is an example of a true Teacher. Professional, strong personality, motivated, goal-oriented and wise. He is demanding and very fair. Kind and strict, cheerful and serious.

To educate a Person – a teacher must be a Person. Sabomnim Florez is the one.
I am grateful for everything.

Amazing facility and incredible Sabomnim! Hapkido was our first introduction to Martial Arts and we’ve been hooked! Sabomnim and Miryam have made us feel like family since our first class last year.

Sabomnim Florez is what a great teacher should be, he pays attention to my boys and instructs them on a personal level, really experienced teacher makes the difference when trying to learn what is considered an Art, I will be taking my kids to him as soon as they finish their Taekwondo school.

Sabomnim is doing a fantastic job in connecting with my daughter- not only is he showing and teaching her the art, he is teaching her the culture and lifestyle behind the sport.
