I believe everyone in life has a dream they want to achieve and they need to find the courage and drive to make it a reality. I happened to be lucky because for me those two are one in the same. I was 13 when I walked into my first martial arts school with a humble goal of becoming a Power Ranger. I trained every day there were classes available and if there weren’t I practiced in my basement for hours on end.

But my goals shifted when I turned sixteen and had my first opportunity to teach younger students. Walking into the dojo as a teacher rather than a student was a surreal moment. I remember looking at the students standing where I had stood, and seeing all their eyes now looking to me for guidance. I suddenly became the example, not just of what a martial artist should look like, but a person as well. I took my job as a role model very seriously. I trained harder than ever, because it wasn’t just about me anymore; my ambitions had grown.

When I finally started teaching adult Mixed Martial Arts and Jiu Jitsu classes, I knew this was what I wanted to do. If I could create a place for men and women to come together after a long, hard day and train, free of pressure and ego, I won. I went to SUNY Stony Brook so that I could stay local and continue to train. In 2007, I achieved my first-degree black belt: easily one of the greatest moments in my life. Finally in 2010, I graduated from SBU with a degree in Mathematics and one year later I opened Alchemy Martial Arts of Setauket.

Looking at it now, I think we’ve succeeded; our studio is a place for people of all ages and experience can share their knowledge, encourage each other, and better themselves both physically and mentally. I can’t complain. Every day I get up and live my dream. I walk into work and share with all my students the same knowledge and skills that gave me the drive to achieve my dreams.

ALCHEMY MARTIAL ARTS OF SETAUKET REVIEWS

Denise Alfano- "Sensei Nick's high energy level is consistent and contagious with the children...more "

"If you are looking for an experience that offers your children improved coordination and self-esteem, consider Alchemy Martial Arts of Setauket. The owner, and head instructor Nick Panebianco has an amazing passion towards teaching and supporting children. The children classes are well balanced with fun and provide skill instruction and drills to develop physical and mental confidence. The classes focus on teaching leadership, cardiovascular fitness, Kempo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and real life self defense. The school is kept clean, and provides a comfortable parent viewing area. The viewing area includes a large screen flat television that allows you to watch your children during the class. My children have attended other karate schools in the past, and they have not come close to the level of professionalism and quality of instruction that they have received with Sensei Nick at Alchemy Martial Arts of Setauket. Sensei Nick's high energy level is consistent and contagious with the children. However, he is able to maintain a balanced level of discipline and respect."

Jennifer Fite - "It amazes me how much he can accomplish and how he has complete control of the students...more "

"Gotta check out this place!!! Sensei Nick and the entire team are fantastic! Nick is a big hit with the kids with his high energy, well orchestrated fun classes. It amazes me how much he can accomplish and how he has complete control of the students for the entire time. I even started taking kickboxing classes there and never once was disappointed. If interested in the martial arts, I promise that you won't regret this place."

Paige Etheridge - "He is able to combine his deep knowledge of physics with MMA...more "

"Nick has an amazing philosophy on Martial Arts. He is able to combine his deep knowledge of physics with MMA and street smarts, while breaking it down so anyone can understand it. He works with what makes each individual unique so that they can reach their potential. This is something most schools overlook which Nick pulls off beautifully. That aside... This is the right school if you want to get in shape or train to be an MMA pro. He's a great role model for his students, including kids. He is not only a fun person but one who is living a life of true integrity. This is also a great school to learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones in the best way possible."

Raghav Kunnawalkam - "The right mixture of Martial training with the Artistic education...more "

"I was a regular at the dojo since they started till about a year back (when i had to move for my job) and I really miss my classes at VMA setauket. The right mixture of Martial training with the Artistic education gives you something that you can use (in case you need it) and appreciate at the same time. Martial arts is not about knowing how to do a kata properly or getting a good workout (which is a good byproduct), It is about self discipline and self understanding. I understood more about my own body, mind and its capabilities than anything else. It is for these reasons that I always thank Sensei Nick for introducing me to this world of martial arts and he has left me with an insatiable desire towards learning it."

Amanda Kern - "Kickboxing offers a great class combining cardio, strength training, and basic fighting techniques...more "

"Sensei Nick is the best! I take his Cardio Kickboxing and Adult Kempo & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu every week. Kickboxing offers a great class combining cardio, strength training, and basic fighting techniques. It provides you with the knowledge of self defense while you get an awesome workout. It's such a fun way to keep in shape. The adult classes are just as fun and still laid back while giving you a much deeper knowledge of martial arts. Learning both standing fighting and fighting on the ground, everything is controlled and everyone leaves class having learned something new. Sensei Nick focuses on the traditional art as well as the modern art and he is always willing to slow down help his students in class or even stay after class to provide them with a better understanding. Everyone at Alchemy Martial Arts has such great vibes and we all see each other like family. Sensei Nick has such a strong passion for everything he does and for all of the people who help support the school and come take class. I highly recommend Alchemy MMA!"

Kristin Price - "they are always patient yet firm enough to yield positive results...more "

Jason Zvokel - "I feel stronger than ever and more confident...more "

"I started going to Nick to learn self defense and realized the martial arts are a way of life. I feel stronger than ever and more confident. Highly recommend Alchemy MMA of Setauket!"

Jessica Marotti - "They offer a challenging and motivating experience for all age groups...more "

"ALCHEMY Martial Arts of East Setauket has offered my son a positive experience. He is only four and working with the sensei's there this past year he has grown to be more respectful and diligent. They offer a challenging and motivating experience for all age groups."

Adrienne Ingram - "My whole family goes there because there is something for all of them to do...more "

"The cardio kickboxing program is great I get a nice workout and have fun while I do it. My whole family goes there because there is something for all of them to do. The Head Instructor Nick Panebianco has an amazing energy that irradiates throughout the class when you take it I would highly recommend checking it out."

Matthew Robey - "It's challenging for all levels of fitness...more "

"I've been going to Alchemy Martial Arts of Setauket's adult MMA class for 6 months. Nick is very knowledgably and an excellent instructor. He keeps the class interesting and fun. It's challenging for all levels of fitness. It's a great atmosphere for those looking to stay in shape, learn something new, and let out a little stress. As a parent I also look forward to bring my children when they are old enough. Nick is great with the kids. He is a good role model and helps kids develop their self esteem and confidence. I highly recommend Setauket Alchemy Martial Arts!"
