The Silent Mind in Summit County, Ohio Receives Great Reviews from Students Enrolled in Martial Arts Training

There are many people who like the idea of taking part in an activity that challenges the mind, body, and spirit. However, since facilities can differ greatly in terms of approach, it’s best to look at a martial art school student reviews prior to enrolling. To make things easier for those who are interested in martial arts training, The Silent Mind makes student testimonials readily available. After reading just some of the comments students have submitted about their time at The Silent Mind, you’ll notice several recurring themes.

“When I was looking for a martial art program for my children, The Silent Mind stood out above other schools I considered.”


“As a former boxer, my martial training at The Silent Mind has opened a whole new perspective on keeping in shape and executing proper self-defense techniques.”


“Their whole-person approach to exercise, engaging the body, mind, and spirit in every one of their programs was exactly what I needed to be satisfied with my workouts.”

Unlike other schools of its kind, The Silent Mind offers a wide range of self-defense, Kung Fu, T’ai Chi, Jujutsu, and Aikido classes that are designed to help participants achieve a Black Belt in all aspects of their lives!

Since this establishment is home to a senior staff of instructors who have become Masters in their discipline, it comes as no surprise to learn that The Silent Mind has a history of attracting Black Belts from other systems of martial arts. Though their experience varies, they all have something in common: The Silent Mind has allowed them to continue on their journey and achieve more than they ever thought they could.

“I am now in my 5th year of training under Master Loomis at the Silent Mind. I never really considered that well into my 50s I would be continuously learning at ever-deeper levels. It is challenging both mentally and physically, yet I feel stronger, faster, smoother, more powerful, more efficient, and more effective than at any time in my life. In fact, my training has helped me significantly in two other sports, one being highly physically and mentally challenging.”

”This school has taken me from a very rigid way of moving and performing martial arts, and provided excellent instruction in the internal aspects so that I am no longer as limited in my choices of movement and how I handle self-defense situations.”

“The knowledge and experience I have and will accumulate will undoubtedly make me a better martial artist and better prepared for the many dangers of life. Sensei Loomis is extremely experienced in martial arts, and is able to efficiently and effectively answer any and all of my questions, which I find to be essential to a growing martial artist. In addition to the very practical training, the reason why I stick around is simply because I love experiencing this new martial art and all it has to offer.”

People of all ages who have never taken any Kung Fu, T’ai Chi, Jujutsu, Aikido, or self-defense classes prior to enrolling at The Silent Mind are also impressed with the instructors and the structure of the courses, as well as the atmosphere. Adults and children can benefit tremendously from martial arts training, especially if they’re able to learn within a safe, encouraging environment. Those who feel they’re not getting enough out of their current classes can also enroll at The Silent Mind in order to get the one-on-one attention they deserve.

“I like when every kid gets personal attention from the instructors. My son is really enjoying the class and games. It is a very good way to enhance body and mind. Thank you for everything you do for our kids.”


As showcased in the martial art school reviews below, The Silent Mind goes above and beyond to ensure that families are welcomed and given the instruction they need.

“I’ve been a member of The Silent Mind for about 4 months. Deciding to train in martial arts has proven to be a remarkable experience for me. Sensei Timothy Loomis has been a great teacher and a great mentor to me. His teachings have helped me understand the meaning of life and knowing the true value of appreciation.”

Maurice Hamilton Washington Jr.

“Tim and my fellow Tai Chi students have made the introduction one of the nicest experiences I’ve ever had. Everyone reaches out to help you every step of the way. In the short time I’ve been practicing Tai Chi I feel not only physically stronger but more mentally fit as well. I leave every class feeling better then when I arrived.”

Gary Bauman

“Silent Mind provides a wonderful avenue for families to share a common platform for fun martial arts experience, and fitness. The Lil Dragons and the adult jujutsu classes have great instructors with patience and dedication. Sensei Tim plays an important role in all the classes incorporating the classic techniques to every day practices. I would definitely recommend the Silent Mind to anyone.” 

Zeeba Mercer  

“Our son has sequencing, motor control and dyslexia issues.  We have seen more progress after working in this class for 6 months than we have in over a year of occupational therapy.  Our son is starting to ‘get’ left and right; which is wonderful to see. Plus, he’s starting to learn how to work hard instead of giving up.”   


There are dozens of other martial art school reviews like these, which just goes to show how much students appreciate the work that the staff members at The Silent Mind have put into their facility. Ultimately, the choice to participate in one of the self-defense, Kung Fu, T’ai Chi, Jujutsu, or Aikido classes at The Silent Mind is up to you. However, you can feel confident that enrolling in martial arts training at this local facility will prove to be as life-changing as it’s been for other students throughout Solon Ohio; Macedonia, Ohio; and the greater Summit County, Ohio area.

“In conclusion, whether you’re a seasoned martial artist or a beginner, The Silent Mind is one of the best places to learn martial arts and to better yourself as a martial artist and a person.”
