Followings are some testimonials about Ali Sensei:   
·        ……. it took me less than a minute observing Sensei Najafi that this would be an excellent opportunity for me to get back to the discipline that I loved and missed.  Sensei Najafi is about as talented a karate practitioner that you will ever see.  He is completely devoted to Karate and is an excellent instructor who lives and breathes the discipline he teaches.  Ali Sensei has won several tournaments, is a certified National Level Karate official and many of the competitors in the club have medalled at various tournaments.  (Warren)  
 
·        ……. Sensei Ali gives enough individual attention to all and is very clear in his expectations and instructions (Kamelia)
 
·        ……. Ali sensei  is a kind, caring person. He is a Master in his field, teaches us proper techniques, in a very safe environment. Our Sensei is not only our teacher, but also our mentor (Janet)
 
·        …… I, my wife and my two kids (8 yr and 6 yr old) are part of the KimNik Shotokan Karate Academy for last one year. It is a great honor to learn from our instructor, Ali sensei shows lot of dedication and integrity for Shotokan Karate. 
I think a good instructor should be humble, friendly, kind and respectful and my whole family can attest to these being the traits of our sensei. Our sensei is always keen on answering all the questions regarding the techniques in a simple language. He is very good with the why and how of kid's little creative minds, which helps them to become confident in their techniques. It is a great feeling to have an instructor who is not only teaching us to be fit, but himself is an embodiment of fitness (Rishi)
