NOTHING PROVES AUTHENTICITY

LIKE CONSISTENCY

Philip Sahagun has consistently produced students who are champions on and off the mat. Professionally, his high level students have been sought out by Company's such as Cirque Du Soleil, but more importantly, each one of his students is taught to cultivate happiness and a healthy lifestyle. At K-STAR Training Academy, we believe the lessons shared in class are part of a bigger picture that helps shape our students long after they have left our Academy.

"As a coach, it's essential that we work together to identify your goals and draw a road map to get you there in a timely matter. No matter the age and no matter the journey, I am 100% committed to help you along the way." - Philip Sahagun

INFLUENCER MARTIAL CLUB

“In the time that I have known Philip, he has been more than a mere Martial Arts instructor, but a lifelong mentor. He took great measures to establish in me the foundations for discipline and hard work. This is the biggest takeaway from my time training with Philip and it has been a permanent facet of my approach to Martial Arts. He really cares about his students and is quick to offer guidance even after they have moved on to the next stage of their Martial Arts journey”.

ARTIST CIRQUE DU SOLEIL

" I came from a rough beginning and because of that, I grew up feeling burdened and limited. If it wasn't for this family and this art form, I think I would still be. I want to thank the Sahagun family, especially my Coach Philip Sahagun, for providing over 2 decades opportunities and a method to be my Best Self."

BRIAN L.

INFLUENCER MARTIAL CLUB

Philip Sahagun is not like any other mentor I have had. During Philip’s classes I have learned so much. Not only the physical aspects of Martial Arts, but definitely the mental and spiritual aspects as well. We were taught to push beyond our own physical capabilities and mental boundaries, through this discipline is where we are able to truly find ourselves. This aspect is what I carry onto my lifestyle and I would not be where I am today without Philip’s teachings.

ARTIST CIRQUE DU SOLEIL

Philip Sahagun is one of the most knowledgeable martial arts coaches I've ever met. His coaching took me from someone who practiced as a hobby, to a high level athlete. Not only did he help take my physicality to a new level, but help me grow as a athlete, coach, and artist.

RACHEL B.

ARTIST CIRQUE DU SOLEIL

Philip Sahagun has been a great teacher and mentor to me for many years. I have been very fortunate and happy with learning from someone who is most skilled and experienced in martial arts. Through competitions and learning the Chinese arts he has much knowledge that he has shared with me. I very much enjoy learning from him and will continue in my 10+ years this far.

In film and television, his students have also forged successful careers as stuntmen, choreographers, and actors. Not many people in their 30's have been teaching half their life and working on a skill set for nearly all of it.
