It was a gift for my son for the holidays. He was home from college and was interested in taking a martial arts class. The Groupon price was right and it included the uniform. He expressed to have had a very nice experience. He mentioned that the instructor, staff and fellow members made him feel confortable immediately. He learned many techniques and learned most of all that he was a fast learner and capable of defending himself with simple and safe moves.

I had a great experience on the very first day. Master Pete Lawson is approachable, understanding, and very knowledgeable. Classes are very demanding which is exactly what I was looking for! Great workout indeed!

From Our Editors

Pete Lawson's passion for the martial arts is more than 30 years old, reaching all the way back to when he took his first karate lesson in Jamaica when he was 13 years old. His love for the discipline blossomed, eventually earning him five black belts, a spot in world tournaments, and the opportunity to spar against master martial artists. He also studied Brazilian jiujitsu under renowned master Renzo Gracie, one of the sons of Brazil's famed family of martial artists. As a believer in the saying "to whom much is given, much is required," Lawson decided to put his accolades and experience to good use founding and teaching at his own academy, Brooklyn Martial Arts. Today, he offers classes for all levels of Brazilian jiujitsu and mixed martial arts, preparing students for everything from self-defense to competition.

Lawson also imparts lessons of discipline and perseverance to little ones in kids' classes, using martial arts as a platform to improve their schoolwork, teach them nonviolent ways to deal with bullies, and strengthen their listening skills by having them perform pushups with their ears. They even host birthday parties for kids, where the birthday boy or girl cuts the cake with a real sword and competes in fun and friendly martial-arts-based games and activities.
