I am so glad I decided to start Martial Arts after my son. It gives us something to do together, we love to go to tournaments and support each other. It has been and will continue to be a wonderful mother and son activity!

The values  we stress at home are reinforced at Karate. Karate has helped Danielle appreciate that hard work yields excellent results. Danielle has a deeper understanding of self-control, honor, dignity and self-discipline. She has great self-confidence, knowing she can accomplish anything she sets her sights on!Jahng Bong or Long Staff Great Kick Student Respect

I started this program at the young age of 5 maybe 6 and I love it. I learned many important skills such as how to help someone who is being bullied, how to stay calm when being bullied, what to do during a school shooting, and many more important skills. I miss doing it since I moved to Kauai. It was a lot of fun and I totally recommend it to parents and kids. It helped a lot when I was having a rough day and needed to get the anger out. The staff was so kind and they also provided private lessons if you needed them.

After working my desk job for eighteen years, I managed to put on some extra pounds. A friend of mine suggested that I start taking martial arts instead of hitting the gym 6 days a week. I gave it a shot and a year and a half later I feel healthier and I am just five pounds away from my goal of losing 40 pounds! Big thanks to all the encouragement along the way from everyone in my classes! Martial arts are not just for kids and teens, adults can get started too!

Dear Sr. Master Moody, Your program has had a positive impact on many aspects of Amanda’s life! Since joining your school, her self-esteem has increased significantly and we are all so much happier! Karate for Kids is Wonderful! Thanks Again!

Our children have been involved with KarateBuilt Martial Arts for several years now. Their martial arts experiences have influenced every area of their lives from academic achievement to social skills, physical fitness and self-esteem. We consider it a privilege to be part of the family.

I want to tell you how much KarateBuilt™ Martial Arts Academy has meant to our family. Having a young man with Down Syndrome has been a challenge for us. His weight, coordination, and self confidence was all in need of help. I had checked out several options for him to help with these problems and was very happy with what I saw at KarateBuilt™ Martial Arts Academy. I was so impressed I not only signed up my step-son, but my grandson as well. Justin and Brad have blossomed while there. Justin has improved his balance and self confidence and wants to be a black belt more than anything. Thanks so much for teaching the respect and consideration that the instructors have and that they pass on to all the students.

Leadership has brought many new experiences for our son Hudson Buzby. His self-esteem, discipline and other life skills have really come full circle. He has travelled to many parts of the country and made a lot of new friends at the tournaments!

The Leadership Class has taught Scott to be a role model to young kids as well as his peers. He has matured and is more self-disciplined in school at home and in Taekwondo. He has learned that hard work really pays off.

A couple of my daughters’ friends started taking Martial Arts lessons and my daughter wanted to join them. After doing some research, I decided to get her enrolled. She now has convinced me to take lessons for myself too! She takes Karate lessons and I take Self Defense lessons. Not only is this a great bonding tool but it is also a great way to stay in shape for me!

Tammy Chavet

My daughter was shy since birth. She rarely spoke in front of people she didn’t know extremely well. She started at age 3. Within a short period of time she became more confident and spoke in a more audible voice. By age 4, she was enrolled in the leadership program and was leading small groups that included children up to three times older. Now at the age of 6 she is preparing to test for her Black Belt. The program helped her become a leader at school and church.
