I have had an extremely great experience at REACT personally and professionally.My son who is 6yrs old joined last summer and has learnt the techniques so well.All thanks to Master Nischal who looks into the details and takes immense interest in training his students. Also, we got a session at my workplace, Darwinbox Digital Solutions and my employees had only praises for the training methods. They thoroughly enjoyed the session and said it is very helpful as it is a realistic form of self defense.I highly recommend everyone to join REACT and take up a session so you know exactly what it is to learn those real tactics which will help you to protect yourself and others around.read more

Great teachings by Sh. Nischal Sir and his team of young instructors. Has a very unique way of breaking down the concepts of martial arts moves and teaching you. You are guaranteed to remember the moves for a long time ahead. Very interactive, cooperative and patient in teaching and very fun. Not like all other martial arts coaching centres, in fact the training is oriented towards teaching people about basic yet deadly combinations of self defence aimed to help you in really practical situations that you face on the streets today. Application is guaranteed to bring about a good level of confidence in you. I joined after a free session. Furthermore I was confident at the end of the month with the moves I was equipped with.read more

It was a fantastic time getting trained under Nischal sir. As a dancer, I often have to travel across the country for performing in various platforms and sometimes it is all alone when you don't feel much confident about visiting a new place with all the unknown circumstances you can expect being a girl. So during my vacation time, I took the plunge to enroll for the self-defense classes at the academy. Actually, the introduction to this amazing teacher & the training program was a gift from my brother and I can proudly say it is by far the most valuable possession I've earned for a lifetime. Within a week long training under his guidance and with the help of other instructors, I have become much more confident about myself as well as in exploring new opportunities. And to my surprise, the tactics taught were much more simpler than I had imagined. Most importantly, the learning process was fun and easy to practice.Highly recommend this training program to anyone, in my opinion particularly to the children & women, who is often an easy victim of lack of proper self-defense.read more
