I did research for about 6 months on various martial arts schools in the Hampton Roads area. This guy certainly has the credentials and knows his stuff. I have been schooled in Wing Chun and was looking to advance to an instructor level. MASS has a contract program where you can reach instructor level in 3 years. After meeting the instructor/ owner himself, I was impressed and signed up right away. I really looked forward to learning from him.
Problem is, as soon as you sign on the dotted line, you get ignored. I wasted over $3500 in the 3 year contract as I thought I was going to be taught by the head-man himself...not his students... constantly. And the problem with that is that his students don't know how to teach. With the student-teacher, it's all about "this is how I'm better than you", not "this is what you need to learn". There was NO teaching. Don't get me wrong, the head honcho knows his stuff, and when he bothers to actually teach something, you'll learn a lot. He just has too many other business endeavors to concentrate any worthwhile time on his students. Don't fall for the bait-and-switch. In my experience, signing up here does NOT guarantee you any special level of Wing Chun education/ training from THE highly qualified instructor/owner. Sad thing is... I know I'm not the only one who left for the same reasons. I'm really disappointed that what was marketed as a really great training program by an extremely experienced and high-ranking instructor, was nothing more than his way of getting my $$$ so he could finance his other business endeavors.

I've been here about three times, just to look around and see if martial arts was worth pursuing. The staff was very knowledgable and answered all my questions. If you are looking to begin a martial arts course or learn more about it, check this place out,
