Train hard, finish healthy.

“I have personally known Sifu Jeff Hughes for quite a number of years. Mr. Hughes is a very professional Martial Arts instructor and fitness Guru. I am very impressed with the way that he carries himself as an Instructor and, the way that he instructs.

Sifu Hughes is a Student of the Late Chiu Leun (Seven Star Praying Mantis) and, he is also well versed in other forms of Martial arts plus, Chinese herbology. His self-defense techniques are effective and valuable in today’s environment.

It is an honor to personally know Sifu Hughes as a Martial Arts instructor and friend.” ~ Grandmaster Raymond Nelson, 7-Star Praying Mantis

“Over my years in the Chinese Marital Arts, I have met many young martial artists, a select few go on to become instructors, and on a rare occasion I have witnessed a handful that become proficient, knowledgeable, to be considered a Master.  Jeff Hughes is one of that elite Chinese Martial Artist to achieve such accolade.” ~ Dave Pickens, Board Chairman United States Amateur Athletic Union
