Sensei Ed Melaugh
Some students train with Sensei Melaugh to stay in good health or in good shape. Others want the empowerment of Sensei Melaugh's street-wise jujitsu and practical street self protection.
Parents enrolled their sons and daughters for the self discipline, concentration and sense of accomplishment and practical self defense for the street.
Here's why you should train here.

Monhdil Jose is a Marine Corps reservist and union carpenter. He and his wife, Shelley Bell, and their children live in Reading. He has impressive physical strength, a fact noted by other students. “I work with concrete,” he says, and laughs. “I guess it's genetics.”
But why train here?
“This is the only [martial] art that comes close to street fighting,” Jose said.
“A lot of the other arts are just boxing and kicking from a distance. Here you get up close and personal so you're one on one. I was doing other sports and they weren't getting me anywhere. I was doing soccer but I wasn't feeling the vibe, or whatever you call it.
“In here, I get a workout and I feel much better when I get home.
