Why Train Here?

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.

What our students and parents have to say.

"Ed Melaugh is an inspiring and gifted teacher, it doesn't matter if there is one person or twenty people in class he will give his full attention to you.

He has boundless energy and explains, shows the techniques patiently but expects his students to put in an 100% effort into their training. as a teacher myself, I appreciate the dedication and commitment to excellence" Sue Fiore

"I couldn't be happier at the NESCJA ! My son loves the program,kids,and instructors. Here, he is taught real practical self defense and is exposed to training that assists him in dealing with everyday issues that deals with as a 9 year old." Mr. Mollung

"My daughter loves coming to class. She is learning so many important things that give her confidence to deal with things on the outside and in school." Mrs. M.

All 3 of my children attend Sensei Melaughs classes. They have so much fun and love being involved in everything in class, in Sensei Melaughs classes the kids are not sitting around waiting for their turn, everything is fast paced and exciting. I am so glad I made the decision to bring my chidlren to the NESJA. Mrs. D.

"I have been with Sensei Melaugh since Aug.of 1990, I am now an instructor under him. He has brought SCJ to a differnat level, coming to class we are always training hard and classes are alot of fun.
We have a great group of adults in the school." Chuck Boeri

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.
