"I went to the new White Plains class on Monday. Michael Watson &
Matt Kovsky promised it would be intense and they delivered on that
promise. I'm providing my take on the evening below to let them know
their efforts are very much appreciated and encourage those in the
area to check it out. The level of intensity and personal attention
make it a bargain as well as a fun & instructional evening.
There was a nice progression from the basic exercises to the close
combat drills (with kicking shields & punching mitts) to contact flow
at various speeds (also with wobble board and other variations to
encourage creativity). There were plenty of opportunities to practice
the fright reaction/close combat strikes followed by contact flow at
Frankly, the above is worth the cost of admission, but additionally
you receive some personal instruction/contact flow from 2 master level
instructors. Michael & Matt are both incredibly skilled and each offers
a different style of teaching & working with students one on one.
On a final note, the YWCA is located in a great section of White
Plains – very easy to find and none of the BS parking & traffic issues
associated with some of the business & shopping districts.
Thanks again to Matt & Michael for their generosity with their time."
