“I’m writing to highly recommend Sifu Chuck O’Neill to anyone, young or old, who is looking for a martial arts instructor with both outstanding skill and character. This past summer was our church’s first attempt at offering a summer camp for martial arts.
For the last eleven years we’ve sought to bring a tangible blessing to our neighbors by offering a summer camp experience for children (8-14yrs) that offers a high caliber of training, while maintaining a fun and welcoming atmosphere. In our search for a martial arts instructor who could deliver this kind of training and work with us to deliver the camp experience we sought for we were directed to Sifu Chuck O’Neil through one of his own students.
As a former martial arts practitioner I was immediately impressed by Chuck’s long list of credential’s, but more so by his character. His friendly, energetic and humble demeanor made it a joy for our volunteers to work with him and made him highly approachable to the students he trained.
The caliber of teaching was superb and yet still balanced with a healthy sensitivity to the needs and attention spans of young children. Both the students and I were thankful to have him as our instructor and look forward to working with him again in the future.”
– Rev. Jason Hagen, Student Ministries Director, Morningstar Christian Fellowship
“We had the privilege of meeting Chuck O’Neill when he was asked to speak to the Alzheimer Society Peel staff regarding Personal Risk Assessment at our annual education event. Mr. O’Neill was engaging, charismatic and very professional.
He had an excellent understanding of the clients we serve and our scope of work, and was able to speak to all the different facets of the organization providing excellent tips and strategies.
He conveyed his points with the appropriately level of intensity; yet, was able to include humor to keep the topic interesting and enjoyable. Mr. O’Neill has a natural ability as a speaker and is able to inspire and empower many individuals through his talk and work.
It was a pleasure to have Mr. O’Neill be a part of our education day. We would certainly like to have Mr. O’Neill work with us again in the future.”
