What are Parents Saying?

This karate experience has boosted Carly’s self confidence and self esteem. This has made her a more mature, a more poised and a more confident person. She has learned that with commitment and sacrifice she can achieve a major goal. This will serve her well in life.

Christopher A., Penfield, NY

The instructors were able to get across, without saying it in so many words, that what’s imbedded in a child’s ability to look a person in the eye and firmly shake hands is dignity as well as confidence.

Debra Ross, Fairport, NY

Liana has gained self confidence through karate. This gives her the platform to succeed in anything she sets her mind to. I see this in her school work, horseback riding and day to day interactions with people.
