some reviews from our warrior tribe
It is a fun experience. We get a good workout but they make it fun at the same time. If there is something i cannot do i am not pushed to do it, they will help with another alternative to the exercise. The place is clean and Very comfortable to workout in.
What a great husband and wife team the owners of Fusion Martial Arts make! Both are full of life, energetic, compassionate, love working with children, and most of all, have a desire to share their many years of knowledge of the martial arts. Joining the martial arts will be one of the best decisions you will make in your life, it’s not just kicking and punching, it’s a community that’s an extension of your family.
My son has been in Fusion Martial Arts for just a few weeks and he’s loved learning here! Megan and Greg are wonderful instructors and they offer a very hospitable atmosphere. Seeing my son gain more self-esteem and confidence week after week is priceless. I would highly suggest Fusion Martial Arts!
The exercise is fast and furious! Nothing boring or overly repetitive! Great support and coaching and camaraderie among participants. I’ve toned and lost weight but super sustainable goals.
Love the work-out and Greg is a great coach/trainer. I feel stronger! Great place and team mates!
I don’t even know where to begin. This place, these people, this family…they’ve changed our lives. I’ve seen amazing growth in my son in just the month that we’ve been with Kuk Sool Won. Leadership, self-confidence, personal growth, respect, willingness to help out, these are just a few of the numerous ways Greg and Megan have helped my son. Their patience, understanding, and style of teaching have given us so much more than just the martial arts that we signed up for. They are not only fantastic teachers, but the mentors we would all wish for our children. I can’t imagine our lives without Megan and Greg and Kuk Sool Won of Bloomington.
I like attending Kickboxing #1 the comfortable non judgemental atmosphere.
#2 The people i like the people and the instructors. Everyone is so supportive and we just have amazing fun sweating and all.
#3 Greg pushes you to be successful, but he doesn’t push you past your limits.
#4 I like that Greg listens to you about any concerns and if you can’t perform the specific workouts he’ll MODIFY the workout for you.
#5 Last but not least it works. Omg you leave feeling sore, but amazing. The workouts taught help you to get a full body workout and you build muscle.
I would recommend it to anyone, thanks the Team for helping me change my life.
Greg and Megan taught my kids for several years and are excellent instructors. Highly recommend them, as well as the martial art of Fusion!
Greg & Megan are 2 wonderful people who are motivated & dedicated to changing lives through martial art training. Their vast knowledge in the martial arts is 2nd to none in the Normal area. If you are looking for a credible martial art school that you can go & learn in a safe, clean & friendly environment then Fusion Martial Arts is for you.
Fusion Martial Arts has changed my kid’s lives! The best program for building confidence, teaching self-defense, and getting great fitness. Definitely the best martial arts school in Bloomington IL!!! Totally a family martial art.
Megan clearly cares about supporting and nurturing children to learn and be their best. My son loves being able to learn new skills and have a positive outlet for his energy. Greg and Megan both work hard and and are caring teachers and respectful people.
Our son has autism and it takes him a while to focus and he doesn’t always understand what’s being asked of him. It was very hard to watch what I thought was him struggling, but in fact he was learning and they could see that!! Greg and Megan are completely phenomenal with him and all the kiddos. They love the kiddos so much and are so supportive to all the families.
A well run facility, you can tell the Instructors care about their students and are truly passionate about what they do. I couldn’t recommend this school more!
I have had the privilege of knowing the Instructors for several years and they have a real passion for teaching, and helping others! Fusion Martial Arts offers great self defense training and a family friendly environment all provided to you by their top notch instructors!
Megan and Greg are some of the best instructors you can ever find. They have great attention to detail. They also know how to work with each person’s individual learning style. You will not be disappointed when you join the Fusion family.
Mr. and Mrs. Farris were my son’s instructors at Kuk Sool Won of Peoria. They are good with children, and they are good instructors. My son loves them.
Discipline- check. Fun – check. Great for the body and mind – check. Fusion Martial Arts has to be checked out. Wonderful folks. 🏆
When I travel to central IL this is the ONLY place I will train! The Staff is amazing, the school is immaculate and the energy in this place makes you want to stay for hours!!
Great for young and old. My son has learned discipline and confidence. The physical fitness has eliminated my chronic back pain, and we have both learned priceless self defense techniques. These 2 blackbelts are engaging fantastic teachers.
Fusion Martial Arts is an amazing opportunity for all ages to grow! The family you gain in training is priceless, the memories even better! Great for body, mind & soul! The instructors are amazing people who love to share what they have practiced in a super comfortable atmosphere!!!
My son has been going here for the last six months and not only is it a fantastic martial arts school but the best place for character development as well! Don’t look anywhere else.
