To Sensei Norcross,

"I'm from Sydney, Australia. A practitioner of Ninjutsu and Karate. I came across your YouTube videos and just wanted to say a thank you for sharing. I find your style of teaching and the way you teach every move etc very easy to follow and perfect. A way a teacher should be teaching."

Jack Daniels - Magician/Illusionist

"Mr. Norcross- I must tell you that your YouTube videos are amazing! There is not one single video that I have watched of yours that has not taught me something. From the philosophical videos to the classical budo techniques, each contain their own pearls of wisdom.

You mention in a few of your videos that you have long distance students, how does one become one of you long distance students? I would love to have the opportunity to train with you and your staff. An amazing group of teachers."

- Kenn Fairly

"What I wouldn't give to have a Dojo like yours in my city. Your students are very lucky."
