“My son not only trains there but he is a part of the After School Program.  The program is so much more than I ever expected.  The kids do homework,  computer lab, agility, and martial arts training.
The staff, the owners, and the instructors are amazing.  My son is in the best hands when he is there and has learned so much more than martial arts. He has learned discipline, respect, self-defense, a new language, and life skills.  I know that he loves it as he wants to train and be there all the time.  We are so happy to be part of the community that they have built there.”  Tracie R
