This class has truly been a blessing to my daughter. My daughter has developed more confidence, structure and discipline. The other kids are just as awesome...willing to help the rookies with their movements. My daughter is very happy with the instructors and I am extremely happy with the program as a whole.

My baby used to be an ancy little thing always fidgeting biting her fingers. Her self confidence has gone up 5 notches since she began. It's a different world when you step into the culture of karate; it's about discipline, respect, and focus. She has been taught all of this and more and loves karate and the dojo staff immensely. Respect!

My children attended this School and now my grandson. For them all it has been more than about self defense, it has build confidence and given them the skills for public speaking. Most of all it has reinforce what our house holds believe and is the importance of team work, education, respect and church.

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
