Private Lessons

Private Lessons are a great way to make sure you get the exact training and instruction you want every time you are at the academy. Students are given the flexibility to gear their lesson to their own specific needs.  If you are looking for a one-on-one setting or just a small group lesson, this is the perfect way to go.
