    Tom Gallo is an incredible instructor. He is passionate about his teaching and very exciting to learn from. He makes the class enjoyable and leaves you wanting to learn more every time. I've only been taking his class for two weeks and will not hesitate to continue forward with more classes. Looking forward to them!

    Tom Gallo is an extremely knowledgeable and talented martial artist. As a martial artist myself with the desire to continuously expand my horizons, it is great to be able to train with him. He shows a technique, one I may already know and transforms my narrow view into a much broader understanding of several more applications for the one technique. His overall teaching style makes him a much sought after instructor for both experienced martial artists or people just beginning on their journey.

    My name is Marvin and I met Master Tom about 3 yrs ago. I sought him out because he was the only one who was teaching Kyusho at the time and he is currently the only certified testing Instructor in the 5 Burroughs. Once meeting him I knew we were going to have not only a Teacher/Student relationship, but a friendship as well. Master Tom has a way to himself that makes it easy to pass on and absorb info. Another one of his talents is the ability to find a weakness is a particular moment or technique in most forms of Martial Arts. I will stick with him till we're both masters with long white Beards. :-)

    Tom Gallo is a competent instructor. Tom is a very knowledgeable and skilled martial artist. He would not be a Certified Instructor with Kyusho International if he wasn't. If you are looking for a true teacher of the martial arts without all the nonsense that comes with commercial schools out there today, I highly recommend meeting Tom, and trying one of his classes.

    My Name is Anastasios Mylonas , Tom got me interested in pressure points and knife defense. I love it and wish he could teach more times a week so I can reach a higher level, the things he teaches allot have forgot with this new sad era of the word mma involved with martial arts. What Tom Gallo teaches is a ART!
