"I have known Tom Lugo for over five years and he is one of the most impressive martial arts instructors I have ever met. I have the opportunity to travel around the globe and meet with different martial artists and train with them. However, when you train with
Sifu Lugo you gain access to top quality training and school that is intent on bettering itself. " -Martin "Travelling Ronin" Fransham

"Sifu Tom incorporates a real-world and comprehensive approach to training and instruction in integrated martial arts. His years of practical and professional experience are evident in his style of instruction. He takes the time to review the history and application of different styles and then incorporates the best and most effective techniques empowering his students to achieve a level of understanding, readiness and confidence, in case needed in a lifesaving situation."-Dominick
"Sifu Tom is an excellent teacher. He is very humble and a great communicator. He works well with each individual student and explains how to use the techniques practiced extremely well. I've traveled throughout the U.S., and have visited a number of schools as well as judged in large tournaments. Sifu Tom is the real deal, and one of the top martial artists I've had the fortune to see and work with in person." -Sifu Chris
"My 8 year old son has been going here since he was 5 and I can say without reservation that he loves it. Sifu Tom Lugo is an incredible athlete, but the most important thing to me is he is dedicated to the kids. My son is a more confident and disciplined person since he started at Integrated Kung Fu Academy. I have recommended them to many friends and family. Your child is truly going to love it and will be motivated to go. There has not been a single time that my son has wanted to miss a class, he genuinely loves it!
You would be lucky to have your child learn from Sifu Tom or any of the other incredible professionals that actually love kids and know how to establish relationships with each one based on mutual respect."- John
