Christy I., Carlsbad CA, Parent and Student Testimonial

My family loves AK Martial Arts and Fitness!  I have a 3 year old daughter and a 5 year old son that take karate classes and they love it! The instructors are great with the kids and I love how much my kids adore and respect the instructors. I also take karate classes at AK and love the exercise I get along with learning self defense and many other skills. I think it is wonderful how much they are involved in the community and how much support they give to the local schools.

What a refreshing surprise it was to discover AK Martial Arts and Fitness.  Your do jang really does adhere to a higher standard than most; teaching with integrity and exposing us to the great art of Tang Soo Do.  One of the reasons we chose your do jang, in the first place, was because of your unique method of testing and sparring.  Your testing protocol sets itself apart from that of other martial arts do jangs.  At AK Martial Arts and Fitness, testing is performed only upon honest evaluation of abilities and performance.  It is truly skill-based and not about anything else (such as money or promotion just for the sake of belt collecting).  Your do jang is genuine and true to your art.  Additionally, sparring is performed in such a way that is mindful of personal ability and respectful of safety.  You eliminate the element of injury, and yet manage to maximize the development of the skill.  After being a part of your incredible do jang for nearly five years now, we just want to say Thank You and please keep doing exactly what you’re doing.  AK Martial Arts and Fitness…you’re the best!

If you are looking for a different kind of workout, self-defense skills, a positive environment for your children to learn about self-discipline and self-control while picking up valuable lessons regarding physical fitness –  then i highly recommend trying out AK Martial Arts and Fitness….Now we all have an activity we can talk about together, something we can do together and something healthy to do at least a couple of times per week.  I’m stronger, have better posture and am generally more relaxed.

UNBELIEVABLE…BRILLIANT! This is without a doubt the best Martial Arts Gym in the country. Their RealFit4Life location is big, roomy, clean and inviting. The second you walk in, you’ll feel like family. They teach more than martial arts and fitness, they encourage self confidence and disciplines. Whether your 4, 14, 40 or older, male or female, this is definitely the place to check out. My son started there when he was 3 years old and now he’s 8 and has achieved his Green Belt. He has learned self control, self respect, respect for others and so much more. Every instructor is wonderful..they’re a team, and every member is part of that team too. I can’t say enough. AK Martial Arts & Fitness is the number one choice.
