    Nice place with outdoor gym.

    Refrigerators with old food, not clear what belongs to whom, unpersonal attitude, lame atmosphere. Students were teaching.

    Teaching overall not with personal attention for technique. Did not learn as much as I expected.

    Also rick tried to charge me for taxi; it was included in the deal I booked. Also only 1 shirt ( booking said two) and no internet-books were provided. Rick's philosophie not explained.

  • Julija Kržišnik Slovenia

    All classes, specially mental martial art. Good yoga instructor, nice driver. Helpfull students.

    Dirty room, bathroom on the day of arrival, had to clean it all by myself. No towels, dirty sheets. Lack of information.

  • Dorothea Schreil Germany

    October 2017, BookMartialArts

    the accommodation is nice: kitchen, rooms, swimming pool, hammocks, exercise areas are well equipped, the workout and martial arts classes started on time. beside the classes you are able to use the experience rooms for own further practice. good wifi.

    the yoga classes were totally missing, there was no pick up from the airport and the food was missing on the first day.

    I had to get active to get a drop off and the food on the second and further days.

      I am a 6th degree Black Belt in Karate and a 7 year undefeated champion of Europe, now I am an M.D., acupuncturist, author and lecturer. I have known Rick Tew for 20 years, he was one of my instructors and sparring partners. He is top of the charts in dedication, motivation and inspiration. Training with him is life changing and profound. I would recommend him over everyone else because of his diversity and mastery of the spirit of Martial Arts. He is also a gifted and impressive speaker and can mesmerize any crowd with his speeches. Words are not good enough to describe this man. Experience him

    • Jeff Thom Canada

      I’m certain that if you attend you would have learned and realized useful things that would affect your over all quality and level of success in life. You will have learned how to get over your fears, learned to face challenges , you would have learned how to become more of a leader. CMS produces which means that although the students may come here starting at ground zero – if they simply choose not to quit, not to give up on themselves, they will eventually get there.

    • Kevin Odgen United States

      Its a chance of a lifetime to get away from all the stresses of life and focus everything that you have, on your training and self improvement. What I like the most is the variety of the system which involves everyday life training with how to be healthy in mind, body, spirit and nutrition.

    • Richard Nelson United States

      NinjaGym website

      The only thing I think I could really have to add to all of this is that CMS is an Adventure in life. You might only get so many invitations to take such an adventure when you’re young before you get caught up in the struggle of life as it is today. For me, CMS was a childhood dream to be a Ninja. Other people probably can relate to this, because Gen X grew up in the 80’s which was the king domain of Ninja’s being glorified thru multimedia. Because your focus determines your reality in life. If you choose to focus on the bad parts, then that is all you will see. But if you take those small nuggets that are just pure fun, happiness, and love…roll them into one big image of what you want, and focus on it.That is what you’ll see no matter where you are.

    • Cindy Alexander

      NinjaGym website

      Inspiring, dedicated, enlightened and real all come to mind when I think of Rick Tew. His work ethic is first rate and his commitment to live fully and truthfully is contagious. But even more important than any of the above, his loyalty and support as a friend is incomparable.

    • Michael King

      NinjaGym website

      Awesome. Discovered your book Winjitsu on Amazon, and I'm really getting a lot from it, applying it to life and training. Keep up the good work.

    • Jamien Ousei

      NinjaGym website

      He is very intelligent, very funny, very cool, and very disciplined. This rare combination of attributes makes Rick a dynamo of a person and teacher.

    • Ronnie Lopez New Zealand

      NinjaGym website

      I can vouch that Rick really does what he preaches, he walks the talk rather than talks the talk. He is very congruent in what he says and passionate as a result because he has actually lived it. He has a genuine energy about him, and that energy definitely comes from a place of contribution and creating value for others.

    • Kevin United States

      NinjaGym website

      I’ve worked with Rick Tew on and off for a few years now. To this day, I am still amazed at his ability to motivate others to take action toward their individual goals without losing sight of the team’s goals. This in my opinion, makes Mr. Tew such a dynamic and effective leader. I’ve personally witness how he has used his talents in the Martial Arts to not just define his life, but to enrich it and those around him. Mr. Tew has created personal development courses based off his unique experiences and most importantly, these courses are able to be modified to the individual. This to be a very rare trait to find nowadays.

    • Jabez Parson United States

      NinjaGym website

      Most of my Mind Body Spirit learning took place when I began reading Rick Tew’s articles on his web site. I have learned mental conditioning and mind-body anchoring techniques that I have been using since. I learned to be in total control of my emotions whether I wanted to be happy or depressed. Many of my spiritual qualities were strengthened during CMS as my mind and body were being conditioned.

    • Bryan O'Malley United States

      NinjaGym website

      CMS takes the best of rock climbing, hanging out with your friends, competing in a Martial Arts tournament and BLOWS IT ALL AWAY!

    • Ross Kottmyer United States

      NinjaGym website

      There’s more to this experience than just martial arts. An equal part of the program helping you to see the areas in which your attitudes are negative or thoughts are inflexible or closed. Be ready for having these things subtly brought to light. For those unprepared, it can be unnerving. For those willing to grow and change, it’s encouraging.

    • Josiah Lewis United States

      NinjaGym website

      Go for it! Don’t let anyone hold you back from doing what you want to do with your life! Attending CMS is the adventure of a lifetime, so if you think you have what it takes, just do it! You’ll be happy you did. I experienced more than any normal person should in 2 months. I was tested both physically and mentally. I experienced some pretty serious martial arts training.

    • Walid M

      NinjaGym website

      I think from my perspective as a student taking private lessons it is intense. We train daily for couple of hours, usually 3 to 5 in addition of course to practice I do on my own to mentally and physically reflect for the next day. Weekends are off but again we could practice outdoor sometimes in them. So, there is also flexibility to the program. Usually,

      every lesson there is something new, if not more than one thing, that I have learned.

      Training follows a systematic organized approach, starting off with stances, following into falls, rolls, strikes and punches, kicks and ending with weapons. Sometimes we may shake things up a little depending on the day and the flow of training. So, generally I never find myself bored even though I am training privately. It is actually feeling very intense and focused in this way to perfect every move as much as possible in such short time available.

      For every lesson also, we make a video recording of it for Home Study Program, to support my learning after class, but even after the entire training period here in Bangkok. This is very useful as at anytime I can log in my account and look at myself and memic Sensei Rick's body movement or adhere to the movement I already do in case I have executed it correctly in the video.

      As a person who is doing his PhD in behavioral studies and psychology, as well as having completed several training camps in Europe, I could attest that the training I am having here is truly positively challenging in all ways for one to master skills, knowledge and mindset growth in such short period of time - and then only with practice that perfection comes.

    • Craig Peterson United States

      NinjaGym website

      I have gained more strength, stamina, and creativity physically, mentally, and spiritually. My ability to communicate clearly and with confidence without being overbearing has also advanced my professional life.

    • Kris Butler Canada

      NinjaGym website

      Mentally, I learned that there are many different ways of thinking and a strong result of those thoughts are your action and success. Much of what you get out life and what life is going to offer you is dependent on how you think.

      Physically, I have learned more than I can put into this response. I suppose to sum it up. I can do things with my body that I never new I could do. I have surprised and surpassed my own expectations many times over. The best part is that the learning never stops and there is always a new level reach and to kick your butt and make you want more.

      Spiritually, I have had the chance to be a part of something much bigger than myself. I have been and continue to be a part of a team of people that are dedicated to human development and to getting more out of their lives and themselves.

    • Billy Sanders Arkansas, USA

      NinjaGym website

      I have found I can push myself much harder and farther than I previously thought and my resolve has increased as well.

    • Bas Bauman Netherlands

      NinjaGym website

      Rick seems to do things that most people would never even consider doing and seems to make them work.

    • Cedric Cobban Canada

      NinjaGym website

      Rick Tew's method of teaching is awesome, very clear, and simple. The way his classes are organized are also fun since they are not repetitive. He is also an overall fun guy and does pretty much everything with the students.

    • Marco van Der Weijden Netherlands

      NinjaGym website

      Expect to be taught a highly effective form of martial arts. Next, is that you can expect to have a lot of fun doing the outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, and outdoor camping. The unique thing about NinjaGym is that it is open to new ideas and techniques and therefore ever growing; it encompasses a wide range of activities from ground fighting to rock climbing. You can also expect to feel the sense of group spirit when you go through all the experience together.

    • Otwin Cyrus Netherlands

      NinjaGym website

      It is diverse, but simple, fun, challenging, indoors, and outdoors. It is more than just punching and kicking. You get to travel and see amazing places. You get to develop skills that might never be noticed. You learn to be a team player but have enough space to express your own creativity.

    • Carlos Puente Mexico

      NinjaGym website

      Other martial arts schools only teach a fighting system like a competition and non-realistic self-defense techniques; here, you learn real combat training applied, such as full contact sparring and situations for real self-defense, not to mention weaponry, outdoor training, rock climbing, and more.

    • Jamien Ousei United States

      NinjaGym website

      He is very intelligent, very funny, very cool, and very disciplined. This rare combination of attributes makes Rick a dynamo of a person and teacher.

    • Cedric Cobban United States

      NinjaGym website

      It is kind of like mixed martial arts only more, since you do not focus only on one-on-one ring fighting. You will have multiple attackers, weapons, and be involved in the outdoors (dirt, concrete, improvised weapons, etc).

    • Seth Thorpe England

      NinjaGym website

      Rick is the most dynamic teacher and person that I have had the pleasure to train with and learn from. It has been years and I am still amazed by how his lessons still enrich my life.

    • Nate Paul Palm Harbor England

      NinjaGym website

      Rick is totally dedicated to his students. He is all about giving them all the opportunities he can so they can live the lifestyle that he has. What you want, when you want, where you want, why you want, and with whom you want.
