  • I've been wanting to take self-defense courses for a while. After signing my son up with DLUX , I was impressed by Master Lux's viewpoint on self defense. He told me it isn't something you learn in a day or weekend. It requires practice so it becomes an immediate reaction when needed. I decided to try it out and soon joined soon after. After just a few classes I see my cardio is challenged and I have become more alert on how to react under an attack. Whether someone grabs my purse or pulls a knife out on me. I'm beginning to learn there are ways to help my self. Master displays many ways you can protect yourself which opens my mind up to how restricted I was before on fighting back. He is preparing you for a more natural response in a bad situation. Rather then my fright and flight mode which doesn't work. One day session would not have been enough. Now I'm enjoying this class as it enhances my cardio and defense skills. My son and I have now a common interest.

  • My girls love D-Lux Karate. They have been going for years!

  • My son really loves this place. It is a lot of fun to sit in on the classes they are funny and informative.
