    My four boys have been attending Karate Academy for more than five years. They have earned several belts including their black belts (2/4 of them)! They have enjoyed their time here and have met some good friends as well. I would recommend Karate Academy to anyone for a place that cares for and nurtures their development.

    My oldest son has been coming to Afterschool Karate for over five years now, and we have had a great time. My son has made friends, enjoyed activities and gained karate skills over his time here. The staff is friendly and caring for the children, and they go out of their way to transport and assist the kids. Your child will enjoy it here!

    Both of my girls have been attending Afterschool Karate Academy for about two years. My girls have both grown socially, emotionally, and most importantly learned to respect others and show accountability for their own actions. From the owner, director/management, instructors, and staff, the organization is top notch! I feel great knowing my girls are in a safe, friendly learning environment while my husband and I are at work.

    My son has been attending Afterschool Karate Academy for about two years. He has been enjoying himself as he gets to be with his friends, and participating in an after school activity. He also enjoys learning Taekwondo and has set a goal for himself to retrieve his black belt.

    My child has been with Karate Academy for about 7 months now. The instructors are very professional and my son loves to attend class, and also enjoys the aftercare program. His homework is done in a timely manner and I don't have to worry. I will recommend this academy for all.
