not acceptable

i back in june joined this institute with the promises that i would advance at my own pace. during my time here i belt tests for the entire dojo were delayed and delayed and delayed! to be in this class you are required to buy books and rent movies, as well as pay a membership entry into the "books and movies" club! isnt the martial arts also about not trying to make money out of everything!!!! furthermore ... view more

I always wonder about the credibility of someone who critisizes another, but is too cowardly to attach their own name. For fourty years we have appreciated and been completely responsive to any thing a student might not find desirable for himself, and fully remedied his complaints. I would be quite certain this student never made known how he might have wished some things to be different, or the matter would have been dealt with to his satisfaction. Our study of the martial arts is unusually comprehensive and multi faceted - there is the physical, mental, and spiritual training, a DVD documentary program, a reading of suggested books (if desired- not required), a special character development program, and thorough course training manuals for every level. No other school offers all these opportunities/methods to study the martial arts in depth and thus become a true and knowledgable master. We offer personalized private instruction for less than 1/2 the going rate, and monthly tuition is less than half that of other schools. The lifetime $15 membership fee for access to the schools unique martial arts DVD library doesn't even cover the DVD documentaries which are never returned and have to be replaced. Students do advance in their private lessons as fast as they are able and steadily given new material - even if they might occasionally wait to be officially tested with the whole school. This better experience is well worth waiting a few weeks after they may have been ready. We do have a number of Black Belts continuing their training in the advanced levels we offer beyond 1st Black Belt. No one 'runs out of training'. It is not necessary to be connected to a national organization to promote to higher ranks as long as your instructor was ranked by a recognized legitimate source. I myself was taught by Grandmaster Ed Parker in 1965, promoted to Black Belt by the undefeated world contact figher Joe Lewis in 1975, and promoted to higher Black Belt ranks by Grandmaster Al Tracy, founder of the largest chain of martial arts schools in the world - Tracys International Schools of Self Defense. These certificates hang on the wall, and can be verified on the Tracy website, as well as can any other 'falsehoods' referred to (but not specified)by this student. The martial arts is not for everyone, as it requires and develops patience, perseverance, and the ability to co operate with others who are on the same path. It is regretful we did not have longer to work with this student and help him more. A.C.K. Institute of Martial Arts - Shidoshi P.S. Wimberly

The true essence of Budo

I´ve and studied under Shidoshi Wiberly more tha a decade. I started back in 1995 while living in Los Angeles and continued to train while living abroad in Mexico City, traveling back and forth from Mexico to L.A. He even gave me lessons through phone while preparing myself for my Brown Belt test! And that, I´m proud to say, was a unique and very interesting experience, that I certainly treasure. I can only say t... view more

Where tradition meets technology...It's the best training anywhere!

My life has been changed for the better since I began my training at the A.C.K. Institute of Martial Arts. Without going into great detail of personal life experiences I would like to begin by saying I was an upset, sadden, angry, and at times confused individual doing the best I could to struggle to survive day to day, until........I found the A.C.K. It was here that for the first time, throughout all my seeking f... view more

In just over a year at the ACK I've received thorough training from a number of highly qualified, dedicated and helpful instructors. Although I'm still learning the basics and have hardly plumbed the depths of the school's offerings, I'm very impressed with the level of instruction and the sense of community fostered at the ACK. Additionally, in speaking with students of higher belt levels, I have consistently met ... view more

I began my Martial Arts training at ACK Institute of Martial Arts 5 years ago. I have recieved careful ,personal attention. I have learned how to better take care of myself through better combat skills but I have gained personal inner strength as well in a way that has not conflicted with my religious beliefs at all. I could'nt recommend this school more highly!
