“My kids absolutely love Jeremy and IMA. He knows how to individually work with and inspire each child to develop their skills and self-confidence. His wife, Susan, a first grade teacher, is there for support and helps the students with their study. We have been there for about 6 months now, and it has enable my kids much better fitness and character strength.
It is a wonderful group and each student gets personal attention. We have a good routine of going twice a week, and we have built relationships with the other students and families. The values from IMA have become a cornerstone of my family.”
“Our son has been going to Intensity Martial Arts for about a year now. Every day after school he looks forward to going to class. Most days he requests to arrive early!
I can not express enough how happy we are as parents to have our son be a part of this team. The instructor Jeremy is not only really excellent at what he does but he is also well known in Tae Kwon Do around the country. He still competes and almost every month there is a new 1st place trophy in his studio signifying his accomplishment(s). He trained under a world renown Tae Kwon Do Master in NYC for many years. When you visit Intensity Martial Arts you can see the proof on the wall. There are many autographed magazines from a personal level to Master Jeremy Keller from famous martial artists– one being Chuck Norris.
The atmosphere here is second to none. All the parents are happy to see each other and we enjoy talking and watching our children grow more confident. The theme at Intensity Martial Arts is Integrity, Courtesy, Self Discipline, and Perseverance. Weekly I see our son displaying these “core values” at school, home, and at Intensity Martial Arts. It is such a blessing.
Master Jeremy Keller teaches all ages. At around 4pm he instructs the “Turtle” class with children up to about age 10. At 5pm, the “Ninja” class begins and it accommodates children to around 12 or 13. This is the class our son is in. At 6pm the adult class begins and it has a good mixture of teens and adults. As an example of Master Keller’s teaching ability, he took on a woman that is in her 40′s and after a few months of instruction and positive reassurance she ended up winning a first place trophy at a Tae Kwon Do tournament here in the San Fran Bay area.
Master Jeremy Keller and his wife absolutely love operating this facility. I enjoy going to our sons class and hanging out just because it feels like family there. I often fantasize about taking the adult class. Maybe this winter when things slow down at work I will be able to begin.
When we moved here a few years ago we looked very hard for a Martial Art school for our son to attend. He was already a Orange belt in Karate from when we lived in Monterey CA. We knew what we were looking for. We found Master Keller and within 15 minutes of conversation I knew he was the man I wanted teaching our son.
The other day I was playing with our son and we started punching and kicking at each other. I am 5′-8″ and around 190 lbs. and have been in the military for 13 years. Honestly I was having a time trying to catch our son. He was dancing around me laughing and striking me with his feet and hands. The few times I got close to making contact with him he was able to throw a block and then started running around me again laughing. I thought about it that night and I noticed that not only has our son’s confidence increased, but also ours, as parents. I realized that we are not so paranoid when he goes in public without us and I have been letting him run over to his friend’s house more and more over the past few weeks. This feeling of certainty as a parent is HUGE and it has been made possible by Master Keller.
Before I finish I would also like to share that Master Keller has a really good relationship with other Martial Artists around the bay area. He cross-trains with them many days in a month. This action makes everyone more well rounded at their Art. Master Keller takes all the new-found techniques and incorporates them little by little in his teachings at his facility. I think that this is a phenomenal move because, like I said before, it makes one familiar with other styles of Martial Arts. (Very strategic in my opinion.)
Intensity Martial Arts studio is, hands down, a superb place to learn Tae Kwon Do. Each month there are more students and I am constantly witnessing people become more confident in life and in self defense. Master Keller is extremely fair on his pricing. He conducts his studio from his heart and his priority is to see people advance and become more athletic and certain about themselves.
I highly recommend this place. I look forward to seeing you there as a parent or a student. You will be treated with respect and will feel very comfortable. If you are learning the Art, I promise your going to get what you want. You have my word!
“Wow! It’s awesome to see this group train with other groups and studios.”
“I’ve been training in Martial Arts for over 20 years and I can vouch that Intensity Martial Arts is a great school to learn and grow in.
For me I feel that the instructor, Jeremy Keller, has a lot to offer and has an impressive background and experience with both forms competition to full contact kickboxing. He is an all around martial artist.
With his knowledge, he has really fine tuned my technique and knows how to deliver a great work out.
For beginner students, I am 100% positive that if you have the dedication, Jeremy will guide you in becoming an elite martial artist within six months. I am serious that you will earn a medal or trophy in any tournament.
In all cases, if you are not interested in competing, training at Intensity Martial Arts will give you a healthy passion for both fitness and confidence that will stick with you for the rest of your life.”

“for many years i’ve watched mr. keller perform martial arts . first in classes and then in tournaments around the country. every year that went by i was fascinated by the change within him. first as a young man, and then as he became an adult. he is motivated, he is intelligent and brings much needed innovation to the martial arts field . his knowledge of how children think is invaluable. just watching him motivate kids to a level of perfection in adulthood is mind boggling. his level of teaching brings a new standard to the martial arts community . i do not write this review as the father of jeremy keller, but as an observer for 21 years. many of the students he has taught have gone on to become professionals in their working lives and maintain a good relationship to this day with him. if they ever need advice or help they can always count on jeremy. he never forgets his students . please do not think i am writing this review to get business, i do this because he is dedicated to improving the lives of everyone he teaches. the values he instills in students is good for the community, the parents of the students, and the world as a whole.”
