I heartily endorse Evolution Self Defense and Rich, the primary instructor. He has an excellent knowledge of practical self-defense as well as a rich background in traditional Martial Arts. Whether you are looking for useful skills in protecting yourself, or to learn more about the history and evolution of self defense you cannot go wrong choosing this school.

Instructor Mr. Silver is a super experienced and knowledgeable veteran of both martial arts and shooting! My friends and I got very good training and appreciated shooting practices in the range. Mr. Silver is very patient and thoughtful instructor for beginners! He will correct your mistake politely and firmly, help you avoid to duplicate the error again! I would recommend this nice company and Mr. Silver to everyone if you expect to get high quality of training and price performance service!

A group of my friends and I did our CCW with Rich. He’s very knowledgeable and did a good job teaching us gun safety at the same time ensuring we knew the required items on the exam. Rich is very passionate and a really good person, you are in good hands.

My sons and I studied Shinka Goshin Ryu with Sensei Silver for multiple years. We loved every minute of it! He provides a mix of martial arts styles and weapons training that always keeps things interesting and new. He always adapted the classes to keep both adults and kids learning, working and having fun. Highly recommend!!

Had a fantastic firearms training session while in the area. The instructor was knowledgable with a strong emphasis on safety. He had me running real drills that truly reflected real life situations and not just wild "what if's". Afterward we just had fun and fired rounds down the range without any stress. All in all fun experience. Will definitely train with Evolution again

I couldn't shoot the broad side of a barn. All it took was one lesson for one hour and I was hitting center target. Training with Mr. Silver was a fun and educational process.

I have known Silver Sensei for many years now, and his grasp of traditional martial arts combined with a modern twist on how to be used today to protect oneself makes them different from many martial artists that I have encountered in the world today. If you are looking to have a teacher that is more than just how to kick and punch, but to in fact learn a way of life, this is where you should be training.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Sensei Rich Silver ( please correct title if wrong) since the mid 2000’s and have worked with him on several occasions. He is professional, highly skilled in several areas, and a veteran. His training would be a valuable addition to any style!
