We like what our customers are saying about us...

This is a wonderful place to learn Karate. The staff and Sensei are personable, patient, and love the kids. The camps are great and the pride and self confidence they instill in the students is genuine and valuable.

The instructors are committed and do an excellent job of engaging all of the children. There are always multiple instructors working with the children as a group and in subgroups to ensure they are always active, engaged and having their instructional needs met. This is an excellent karate school and we highly recommend it! The level of instruction is second to none and well worth the cost. Our son loves it!

Sensei Stan and his staff are excellent and a joy to work with. My son has gone from a shy little boy that couldn't make a sound when someone approached him to a confident loud young man! I was so impressed I had to join the dojo myself :--) Definitely great for families.
