Rod, Head Coach & Founder

    "I have always been passionate about teaching. Seeing students progress and get above the bar they set for themselves, is one of the greatest feelings I have experienced.

    With STAND OUT, my goal is to imprint on my students a fighting logic and skills for the streets, and more importantly, for everyday life's challenges — help them grow a confidence- and perseverance-coated skin that shields them from bad hits while progressing towards their goals. Ultimately, stand out against all odds."

    — Rod Berger, Head Coach & Founder

    Rod has studied and trained Grandmaster Ip Man (a.k.a. Yip Man) Wing Chun and self defense over the last 10 years. He proudly earned a 2nd-Level Technician certificate from City Wing Tsun, a highly-regarded Wing Tsun school.

  • Jeremy A.

    Great instructor. The class is a modern view of the martial art. Instructor is very attentive and make you feel like you have almost a private session. In summary, it's a great class - good workout.

  • Sophie J.

    Awesome! As a complete beginner I had two classes with the intro pass and I will definitely come back. I tried several martial arts classes and this one seems finally to fit with me. Good vibes, the teacher was nice and accurate while demonstrating the techniques and advanced students very friendly and helpful. Also a good workout!
