Sensei Ace is kind and warmhearted, with a heart that's always in the right place. Despite from the youtube video, he reacted in a way I'd want my child to be protected especially in the times we live in. The dojo is home, a place of peace and art for all. So when someone comes to disrespect it and refuses to leave, how else would you react?An experienced fighter, quality Jiu-Jitsu instructor, and protector of all!

Great instructors for every age and every level! ALWAYS a welcoming environment and I’ve never felt more safe in this dojo. You will learn REAL self defense and build REAL character at this place. Truly one team one dream. I wish every jiu-jitsu school was like this one

Mr. Ace lost his cool and felt threatened when real martial artist from the Cobra Kai dojo made a visit to his McDojo.If the big bad bjj guy is afraid of karate. Maybe his students should join karate and stop rolling around on the floor hugging each other.

Ace is a very dedicated, knowledgeable, considerate, and personable instructor. Don’t believe the negative reviews bc I guarantee none have had an actual personal experience with him as an instructor or as a person.

The instructor is a fraud and has anger problems. If I’m being honest, I don’t even understand how people even let him run a Dojo when clearly he doesn’t even know how to run himself. It’s understandable though - when the 3x Valley champion from the Cobra Kai Dojo challenges you…I’d be scared too.

Sensei Ace showed very poor self control and anger management towards the Cobra Kai Dojo after being respectfully challenged. He lost his cool and began cursing and screaming even in front of children as he claims there was a kids class going on. Cobra Kai Dojo was not being aggressive at all but Sensei Ace showed fear, hostility and threatened to beat up Cobra Kai students. Luckily for him Sensei Johnny Lawrence wasn't around. Maybe Sensei Ace should go train at Miyagi Do to learn how to better control his anger. We'll see you at the All Valley Tournament next year, cobra kai never dies. Also how are you a martial artist and don't know the movie "karate kid" come on now 🤦‍♂️

Lotus Club has great teachers that have the patience to work one on one with your child. They care that the kids understand the sport and do it correctly. It is a very personalized experience and my son loves going every week to the classes. The teachers are very friendly and care about the work they do.

This man is a bad example for the martial arts community. Cussing in front of a under age girl. This kind of attitude must be addressed and fix right away. A good long period of anger management classes is what this man needs in his life.But overall the club installations is decent.

My kids have been training at Lotus Club for a few years. Best decision I’ve ever made for them. They have not only learned how to defend themselves but also about discipline, hard work and good morals. The coaches are amazing at teaching and guiding the kids.
