hear what our students and parents have to say

"We would like to say that S. B. Kim's class is an excellent class to take for those children and adults that would like to learn self-defense.  Tom at first was shy about getting into the class.  Once he made it through the door to actually watch a class he became less shy.  A classmate began to talk to him and his confidence grew.  He quickly participated in the class due to the camaraderie of the students in the class.  The teaching methods are such that no matter what belt levels you begin with you are an equal to everyone else in the teacher's eye.  Master Kim and Ms. Kristi teach at the level appropriate to the level of the student.  They are both very professional in their teaching methodologies.  Tom Loves the class and we are overjoyed that he has an outlet to get his energy out all the while learning self-defense and learning discipline plus teamwork.  Thank you both".
