I would recommend SHAKU to everyone and do so every chance I get.
I have been going to SHAKU for 3 years now mainly for kickboxing and circuit training. It is a very friendly atmosphere with the emphasis being on respect for everyone as well as your self. Sensei is very accommodating when it comes to busy schedules and life in general. It is a very encouraging and postivie environment even for a complete beginner, which I was when I signed up. I would recommend SHAKU to everyone and do so every chance I get. It is the only exercise regimen that I have stuck with in my 40 some years!
