    "I took what I learned from the seminar this last weekend to training today. By far the most consistent, high-quality training session I've ever had. HUGE thanks to Coach Ma and Coach Manuel for their help and knowledge!"

    "Takeaway from the weekend ... it's highly unlikely that you won't take something positive away from this seminar. Especially when you are learning from a Coach with such a long history (over 40 years) of competing and coaching at the highest level in the world. If you get the chance, go to a Ma Strength Seminar....it's well worth it!!"

    "Many thanks to Ma Strength coaches Jian Ping Ma and Manuel Buitrago for their outstanding technique clinic held at my gym Tough Temple CrossFit this past weekend. Having been coached by many great coaches over the past three years, and becoming a coach of the olympic lifts myself, I can say the level of understanding and insight offered by these two coaches is truly great. "

    "As a coach and a lifter I definitely value the chance to connect with these athletes /coaches to gain not only knowledge, but definitely perspective on the sport of weightlifting. Again thanks for the opportunity and I will definitely participate and encourage others to participate in anything you guys hold in the future!"

    "I've attended quite a few olympic lifting clinics in the past 6-7 years, including private camps with Olympic Medalists and a Camp with Team USA at the Olympic Training Center, but this weekend's clinic with Jianping Ma and Manuel Buitrago has been my favourite so far."
