I have been Kickboxing at Murrays since April, and I can honestly say that it has been the best workout I've experience. Its an intense full body work out but I am always having fun while doing it! I am continually challenged physically and push to my limits. I have never seen the results I want as quick as I have with Kickboxing. This comes highly recommended!
I've been with MMAC since end of June. I didn't know what to expect at first but by the end of class I wanted more. The instructors are amazing and very intuitive to every person. They each have their own style of teaching which accommodates everyone on choosing which class they prefer to take. I normally go to the night classes and the instructor is incredible. While he gets the class pumped and ready to throw some punches and kicks, he observes everyone's technique and gives one on one instruction and criticism on how to improve it without interrupting anyone else. Every class we leave wanting more. There is no pressure on trying to be better than anyone else because everyone there comes in and works on improving themselves at their own pace and comfort level. Looking for a full body workout with amazing instructors? You should really try kickboxing with Murrays Martial Arts. It's definitely worth it. :)
This is the greatest workout I have ever had. I have always worked out and taken classes at the gym. I have always struggled to find something to really challenge and keep me interested over time. But Murrays makes it fun, challenging and rewarding. I look forward to coming back each time. The schedule is diverse giving no excuse not to come. The instructors are knowledgeable and caring. They always make sure to give compliments and support when needed. LOVE that I found this place
The kickboxing classes are out of this world! Instructors make it fun and you don't even realize how hard you've worked out until the end and you're dripping in sweat!
Like many people living a healthy life style is not always the easiest, especially when it comes to working out. I can force myself to go to the gym, find a workout buddy to motive me, but sometimes you find yourself always coming up short in getting the workout your body needs. I came across Murray’s Kickboxing class online and decided to give it a try. A month later I find myself getting a great workout that motivates me each class. I never thought I would find a place like Murray’s, the people who join all have the same goals in mind. We have fun every class and we also get the benefit of having such amazing coaches. They will continue to monitor you, make sure you are doing all the moves correctly. They remind me when I am struggling how far I have come since day one, so the motivation and the support never stops. I want others to know that they can take the first step to a better you and I think Murray’s is a GREAT place to make that first step.
I was 9 when I first started martial arts with MMAC. I was a VERY shy tomboy who didn't have many friends and no self confidence. For anyone that meets me now would never believe that to be true, especially my students.Martial arts gave me the outlet to be myself and the instructors helped grow my confidence. 15 years later I am no longer a shy little girl, but a confident young woman that can take risks and doesn't fear the world. I attribute so much of who I am to martial arts which is why I teach. There aren't very many female black belts in the industry anymore and I know the women I work with aspire to be great role models to young girls and help them gain the confidence that we have
When you walk into Murrays Martial Arts you are always greeted with a smile. You instantly feel like part of this fun living family. It is such a wonderful place where you can either go for a kick ass kickboxing work out or for some Kickin karate fun. The kids learn so much from the program and gain so much from the classes. Murrays Martial Arts ROCKS!
I love this school. The classes are a great workout and the teachers are energetic and very motivating. It's a great full body workout and way to learn to defend yourself. If you are looking to loose weight or just stay fir this is the place to be.
Murray's has shaped my life in ways I cannot begin to describe. I used to be a quiet, shy, and overweight kid-- I hated sports and anything athletic. NOW I've been training for 15 years, I'm more fit and confident, and I'm even running classes! This was one of the best things I've ever done, I'm so thankful for the family I have now
My name is Kim Murray Jr. and I obviously may be somewhat biased, but I would like to point out a few important points for anyone interested.1. I studied martial arts under my father (and his instructors) for over 30 years. I won't talk about my rank or skills in martial arts, although I have accomplished much. What I want to point out is that I am currently at practicing Otolaryngologist - Head and Neck Surgeon in Miami, FL. I also run a music business and recording label on the side. I'm still incredibly fit now at the age of 35, I breakdance and still practice martial arts on an almost daily basis. I truly believe that my background / base in martial arts, taught to me by my father, is what gave me the tools to achieve and continue to push for such accomplishments in life. The discipline, work ethic, confidence, and determination to never give up on my lifetime goals and dreams ALL originated from the amazing life skills I learned while training / teaching at Murray's Martial Arts Centers directly under my father Shihan Kim Murray, Sr.2. My father was one of the first lifetime martial arts practitioners and successful martial arts school owners in Rochester. If you have any doubt as to the tremendous influence he has had in this community, you only need and look at the fact that at least half of the other martial arts schools in the city are run by former STUDENTS of my father's schools. Why wouldn't people want to train at the "ground zero" of successful karate in Rochester, NY, where my father continues to inspire and produce both high-level martial arts as well as improve the lives of countless others through fun, quality training. At the end of the day, the results speak for themselves. Look at myself, both my siblings, the vast number of former students achieving high levels in martial arts who went on to try to duplicate the success in their own schools, as well as the thousands and thousands of other people who I have personally assisted and witnessed dramatically improve their lives through training with my father at his schools.It's where leaders are made. The original.
