An Excellent Karate School? 12/31/2009

My daughter is 9 years old and has been attending American Karate for 18 months. McKenzie loves going to karate and even loves helping with other classes. Mr. and Mrs. Gomez are great instructors and have the patience of Job! We are very thankful for everything they do, and we feel very lucky to be a part of such a special place!

American Karate is the best. 11/24/2009

My son has been a member of American Karate for 2 months and I have seen great improvement. He's more confident, active, aspires to more and loves it. I have recently erolled myself and can't wait for all my hard work to show. more

I Love American Karate 11/24/2009

American Karate is a great place for kids and parents. I love this place. Mr. and Mrs. Gomez are awesome teachers. They are very caring of their students. They will work around your schedule. I have been learning karate with American Karate for one year and I do not want to go any where else. The environment is very friendly. I have made a many friends, boosted my self confidence, and my social life is better than what it was before. I am learning many tricks and techniques of self defense. As a girl I need this and my teachers are wonderfully teaching me these. I am always looking forward to going to karate. So,if you get a chance, check American Karate out. You will love it!!! more

Best karate school 11/24/2009

My son has been a student of American Karate for the past 4 years. Ray and Mary Gomez are fantastic. You can tell instantly that they love the kids and love what they do. You get a fantastic sense of family from everyone at the school. The experience has made a great improvement in my sons ability to stay focused at school as well as at home. If you want a school and instructors that care about your child and will teach them how to deal with everyday situations then this is the school for you! more

Respect, Self Discipline, and Courage 11/24/2009

My daughter is in the 2nd grade and is 7 years old. She has been attending American Karate for 3 months now and has learned so much. Mr. and Mrs. Gomez not only teach karate, they teach respect for others, self discipline, and the courage to protect yourself. This class has enriched my daughter's life in ways that I cannot put into words. The main reason I enrolled her in classes was because of balance issues, and her balance has improved, but she has gotten so much more than improved balance from American Karate & Self Defense. My daughter's self-esteem has improved beyond comprehension due to her success in obtaining her gold belt in this short period of time. Hailey knows that Mr. and Mrs. Gomez would not have given her the stripes that she needed to get her gold belt if she hadn't exhibit the skills required which helped boost her self-esteem and self-value. My daughter thinks that she can do ANYTHING now and what else could a parent desire for their little girl? more

great school 11/24/2009

My son is 8 and started at American Karate and Self Defense a few months ago. This most impressive thing I've noticed is how the instructors seemlessly go from teaching advanced students, then beginners. Also, they are able to teach the kids that their achievements will be rewarded, but rewards aren't given just for showing up. The kids have to earn their stripes, yet are handled kindly at the same time. Great place for children to learn. more

Little Dragon loves Karate! 11/24/2009

Our 3 year old really loves it here, the staff is so professional and caring. I totally recommend American Karate to anyon interested in getting their little ones involved in karate and self-defense. more

great martial arts school 1/27/2009

AKSD is a great place to learn martial arts. if you're just starting out, you can go as hard and fast or as slow and soft as you want. you set your own pace and your own goals. the instructors won't push you too far and won't let you slack off either. there's usually a black belt around to give you individual instruction on anything you're not getting in class. if you're an accomplished martial artist, this is one of the best schools around. several black belts from other schools come to our school to get training they're not getting from their own. i started working out at AKSD when i was 36 (without any interest in working out in the past) and now i'm one of the instructors. this place really makes you feel like you're at home. more
