Police B testimonial

I have been employed as a police officer in Bucks County for the past eight years.  During my career I have attended numerous defensive tactics and martial arts classes pertaining to police work.  I honestly believe that of all the training I received in the past; the time spent training at Revolution Academy is far superior.

Your method of instruction allows a student to absorb and retain techniques much easier than other types of training I have received.  I would highly recommend the Revolution Academy to law enforcement and security personnel, or private citizens looking for self-defense training.

 Falls Town Testimonial

The Revolution Academy is a top-notch facility with expert instruction.  My experience at the Revolution Academy has been educational, valuable and most of all, fun.

I have been a police officer in Bucks County, Pennsylvania for seven years.  I have had extensive training and experience as a SWAT operator, a handgun retention instructor, and a defensive tactics instructor.

The training that I have received at the Revolution Academy has been the most valuable training in the area of defensive tactics that I received thus far in my career.  The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) program is practical for law enforcement officers, and has provided me with additional confidence when I’m on patrol.

The attitude and the atmosphere provided by instructor Tony Pacenski produces a true camaraderie amongst the students.  I have also quickly learned to appreciate both the fitness benefits, and the mental strategy involved with BJJ.

I highly recommend the Revolution Academy for any law enforcement officer, or anyone interested in martial arts or physical fitness.

As a female, I must admit it was very intimidating knowing that I would be training with all men.  After one class I knew that there was no reason to feel that way.  I am treated as an equal and with respect.  Even though I just started training, I see a huge difference in myself.  Tony is a great teacher and friend.  Training helps me in all aspects of my life.  Since I started training, I have found things within myself that I expected to find in other things. The days that I go to class are now my favorite days of the week!

Tony has been a major inspiration to me.  When I started BJJ about seven years ago, I was a lost soul.  I was a sophomore in college, and getting into constant trouble, fights, etc.  Tony took me under his wing and was my first instructor.  He taught with a passion second to none, and gave me the gift of jiu jitsu which has made me into a very successful person.

Tony not only helped me understand jiu jitsu, he helped me understand life. I owe Tony everything for making me the person I am today. He is not only a great jiu jitsu instructor, but one of the most quality human beings you’ll ever meet.

I am writing you to thank you for everything you have taught in the years that I have been your student. I just wanted you to you have changed my outlook on BJJ. I always thought that jujitsu was just a bunch of arm bars and things like that, but you showed me the actual art and you have my undying gratitude for that.  I wish nothing but happiness and love as you embark on this new chapter in your life, but again thank you for all you have done.

Thank you for swinging through last night and putting on a very beneficial 50 / 50 guard defense and Sao Paulo approach guard passing seminar. A handful of us had the chance to roll with open mat, and needless to say, there is a reason why you are traveling the world and putting on work shops!
