The owner definitely has a passion for what he does and it shows in his instructions with the children! We are more than satisfied with Next Level MartailArts!

Commment 4: i cant really put into words how much training under james terlecki and everyone at next level martial arts has changed my life it literally has been a life changing experience i have met so many great friends there that i dont know what i would do without james is a great friend that would help you out any in any way possible next level martial arts isnt just an academy it is a family!

Commment 5: My 10yearold son trains with Mr. Terlecki twics a week and its all he can talk about. He loves it there and I believe it is because Mr. Terlecki is so great with the kids. He is patient wellorganized and very thorough in his instruction. My son always leaves feeling like he accomplished something for the day and Mr.Terleckis passion and enthusiasm for martial arts is infectious!

Commment 6: I have been training with James for over two years now. My experiences their are priceless. I have found a greater selfesteem and confidence than ever before. Everyone who trains their respect eachother and are nice to everyone who walks in the door. I have been to many gyms and I believe Next Level is by far the friendlyest enviroment. Thanks to James and everyone who trains with me at Next Level I am who I am today.

Commment 7: I have assisted James w the striking portion of the MMA class for several years.Im a former professional boxer who was trained by Naum Kravetskiya former Russian National Coach. I was also cotrained for 2 fights by John Russellwho trained Buster Douglas for his upset of Mike Tyson. James and I cocorner our competitive fighters a their matches and with a winning percetage over 90there is no one in the world I would pick over James to have in the corner with me when our fighters need strategical advice. He is an extremely devout Christian and a fine man.JL

Commment 8: I was an instructor at the school where Mr. Terleci trained...and he was the best we ever had. I had a good school at the innercity YMCA
in Ytown and I had 5 or 6 topnotch fighters. I invited Mr. Terlecki down to try them out....
he destroyed them all. On top of his martial arts ability hes as fine a man as I ever met.

Commment 9: My son has been training with Next Level for about 6 months now and he is well disciplined and so confident since hes been there.Not to mention bully proof also.Mr. Terlecki is real patient and goes into detail about all aspects of the art.James has the three DsDedication Determinationand Desire to teach at His studio.

Commment 10: I trained with James Terlecki as a child at Master Chun Tae Kwon Do for around 10 yrs. Last year in April I found myself at 272 lbs 34 yrs old and feeling absolutely miserable with myself both physically and mentally. I was lucky enough to run into James again in my life and he invited me to come train with him at Next Level Martial Arts Jiu Jitsu and Kick Boxing. I was excited to be back in martial arts and went full force with Mr. Terleckis guidance and after the first 6 months I was down close to 70 lbs and feeling great. I am in love with Jiu Jitsu and my Next Level family. I owe a lot to my school. I am now 190 lbs in less than a year and in better health than I have been in since I was a kid.

Commment 11: There are only three martial arts gyms in the Youngstown area that are worth a crap. I have trained at all three. One is southside boxing home to our own Kelly Pavlick. Jack Lowe is a talented trainer but will not pay much attention to you unless you are extremely good. The good side is that its almost free if you agree to fight the bad side is that if you are novice that means getting your skull caved in and laughed at by the other gorillas in the gym. There is also Team Bundy. This is a HIGHLY commercialized gym that will constantly pressure you to buy tshirts and attend fitness challenges that are very expensive and you again will be used as a practice dummy for their pro. Everyone is very compeditive and I got tired of having to stroke peoples ego who are not very helpful. So then I came to next level and Ive never been happier. James is a genuine stand up fellow. he is helpful and doesnt let any nonesence happen in his gym. including vulgarity everyone is eager to help and coach new fighters along. This gym truely embodies the humility and dogma that is and should be martial arts. Thank you James.

Commment 12: I have been attending the MMA Fit / Fit Kickboxing class since mid October 2010 and I highly recommend this academy. From the time I started I have lost approximately 30 lbs. Before I was at Next Level I had started my fitness journey just jogging but I had no strength training within my fitness regimen. Since starting the class it has trimmed my fat and toned my muscles much more than I would have gotten by only jogging. The class consists of five 5 minute rounds of 5 different challenging exercises and then 30 minutes of intense fitness kickboxing. The really cool thing is that after every class I feel like I had an outstanding workout while having a great time! Thanks to Next Level I can honestly say that I have never been as fit and inshape as I am today!

Another great quality of Next Level Martial Arts is that its an environment where you dont feel intimidated. When you walk in youre not surrounded by Muscle Men or people with big egos. Everyone the instructors and students are friendly and willing to come alongside you in your fitness goals. Come join us at Next Level Martial Arts Academy and take your fitness to the Next Level!

Commment 13: I generally shy away from fitness classes because I feel uncomfortable and cant always keep up. HOWEVER I have been attending the MMA Fit/Fitness kickboxing classes for a few months now and I love it!! You are encouraged to work hard but can go at your own pace rather than trying to follow an instructor with every single movement. The other participants in the class are very friendly and I never feel like Im being judged. I look forward to continuing to improve my health and fitness by attending the classes and hopefully making even more friends. Great job and thanks Next Level!
