You have contributed greatly by your teachings to the growth of the arts in this country. Your knowledge of the arts will be prolonged for many years to come through the multitude of students you have enlightened. They not only benefited from your rigorous physical and technical training but also from your guidance in the way they live their lives. It has been my honor to know you and call you my friend.

Having participated in your annual International Chinese Martial Arts Championship, I have been continually impressed by your tireless efforts in promoting and furthering the Chinese martial arts. Beyond this, however, I am personally inspired by the quality and nature of your students, which in no doubt is a reflection of the character of their teacher.
– Sifu Eric Shou-Li Yao

We greatly appreciate the many years you have devoted to teaching and tirelessly hosting one of the most important tournaments in the world. You are one of the most outstanding martial artists in the USA.
– Grandmaster Johnny Lee

Master Scrima leads by example. He taught me about passion and commitment and the joy of pushing the limits. I have competed nationally and internationally winning many titles and awards in Tai Chi and Push Hands competition. I know very few people who can “talk the talk” and “walk the walk.”
– Sara Gellhorn (student and National Tai Chi Champion)

My parents enrolled me in Master Scrima’s school when I was about 6 years old. He brought out the best in me. In no time, I was competing at a national level winning many championships and grand champion titles.
– Scott Sinden (student and National and International Champion Forms & Weapons Champion and youngest student to earn a Black Belt from Master Scrima)

At 14 years of age I was inducted into the “Inside Kung Fu Hall of Fame” as Athlete of the Year, the youngest athlete to achieve this honor. I owe my achievements to Master Scrima’s teaching, guidance and leadership.
– Garett Lubecki (student and National  and International Champion Forms & Weapons Champion – Inside Kung Fu Hall Of Fame)

When I was 14 years old, I had a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and was an aspiring Junior Olympic athlete in the sport, I visited Master Scrima’s school where my father, who had been a former Judo Champion, was training.  I had been led to believe that Kung Fu had no power so Master Scrima asked if I would like to spar one of his junior black belts. I was unable to touch him and he pretty much wiped the floor with me. I asked my dad to sign me up right there and then. That was in 1993. I have been with Master Scrima ever since. I went on to win countless tournaments in forms and sparring. I fought full contact and won titles in Sanda (Chinese kickboxing) and became WKA Welterweight Intercontinental Muay Thai Champion in 2015. I now live and teach in Panama but still visit and train with my teacher.
– Andrew Calvo (student and Sanda and Muay Thai Champion)

I started training with Master Scrima when I was 15 years old. I had just completed my black belt in Uechi Ryu Karate and couldn’t wait to begin training in Kung Fu. I distinctly remember not being able to hold up a broadsword when I began. He guided me with a firm, yet caring, hand which led to multiple national championships in forms and fighting as well an induction in the USAWKF (United States of America Wushu Kung Fu Federation) as “Athlete of the Year.”  More importantly, I developed a lifelong passion for Chinese martial arts and their role in the pursuit of self-mastery. I will always have Master Scrima to thank for that.
– Andrew Bliss (student and National  and International Champion)

I started training with Master Scrima when I was 9 years old. Me an my mom joined after he visited a Tae Kwon Do school we frequented. I loved the fluidity, speed and smooth power of the Northern Kung Fu Styles Masters Scrima was teaching. He always encouraged his students to compete and our team traveled all over the US and even overseas to compete. Under Masters Scrima’s guidance and encouragement, I polished my skills and was soon winning tournaments in forms and in fighting. I have also competed in Sanda at the International Chinese Martial Arts Championship winning titles in my weight class. I took over one of Master Scrima’s branch school and have been teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I still train Master Scrima just as he continues to do so with his teachers. He leads by example and I am privileged to have him as my teacher.
