I do not train at this place because I have desire a desire to learn how to defend myslef, not dance the cha cha. I am leaving this review to warn others of the ineffectiveness of the style tht winkler teaches. I will be more than happy to spar him using my six months of ju-jitsu and three months of muay thai as proof of the ineffectiveness of this garbage system.
Normally I wouldn't post this about a school, but after the story ive heard I feel that it is time winkler be exposed for what he is. A two toothed hillbilly that thinks he's mister miyagi but doesn't have the courage to back it up. The man makes fun of children in the children's class to try to make himself feel better about the fact that he has wasted the majority of his life learning how to dance rather than fight. The man is the exact opposite of what a karate teacher should be. He should be trying to instill confidence in his students and teach them to be humble. Instead he makes fun of and humiliates them to the point that they leave the school bawling in front of everyone. This man is a piece of crap that should be shut down. If you are thinking about going there I would strongly advise against it. Try superior ju-jitsu with roger carol, team predator with paul farho, or ground defense in lenoir. All the teachers at these locations are the definition of a good teacher and any one of their students could wipe the floor with winkler in about three months.
