When we first started looking for a karate school for our boys, we checked out quite a few places. However, after taking a trial class, we soon realized that this place was really the only school for us. The environment is safe and healthy.The instructors teach more than just karate. Our sons have now been taking karate for a year and a half now with Sr. Master Rodriguez, Master Warnes, and Mr. Portillo. Our both sons are on their way to achieve their black belts. Karate has helped them in many ways. My husband and I believe their confidence has grown. They get an excellent physical workout. They have made new friends. We feel one of the most important things that our kids have been learning besides self-defense, weapon manipulation, and karate techniques, are life skills like respect, commitment, self-control, "yes, I can" attitude, etc.
