By far the best dojo here in Texas, Sensei Alex has pushed me beyond my limits to become the best Karate fighter I have ever been, inside the dojo and out.
Sensei Alex is a fantastic instructor and patient with the kids. My son has a lot of respect for him and loves coming to class.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH ALEX AS A KARATE TEACHER
I have been training with Alex 2-3 times a week for about 5 years. I first trained with Alex in a Kumite class he offers at a YMCA, and based on that experience I subsequently began to take private lessons twice a week with him.
MY PERSONAL REASONS FOR TRAINING WITH ALEX
Alex respects my hard work and attitude. He does not judge me by my ability or rate at which I progress.
ALEX’S TEACHING AND COACHING SKILLS
Alex’s teaching style is very mature. By that I mean his style does not involve shaming or unreasonable expectations but rather calm and persistent coaching in the pursuit of improving Kihon and Kata. He has a keen sense for knowing when to apply encouragement and when to relax coaching pressure.
ALEX’S SKILLS IN KARATE
Alex’s area of expertise is Kumite. As I trained with him in his Kumite class it became clear to me, that as result of his training and thoughtful analysis, he had a fully developed mental model of Kumite training, from novice to a karateka knowledgeable in Kumite. I have found him to be and outstanding coach in Kata and Kihon as well. He has a keen eye for evaluating techniques, and a good sense of how to improve the techniques, as well as the ability to keep track of progress over months and years.
I value my time very highly. That is why I intend to continue training with Alex throughout my karate career.
