Likes best about Salick's:
"It's real. At the adult level, we spend the vast bulk of our training time on skills that would really work on the street. You'd think every martial arts school would do that, but not all of them do. When I first came to Salick's, I'd already been a senior black belt instructor at another martial arts school. I thought I knew my stuff. Then the green belts at Salick's just ate me up."
