Kids and adults alike will benefit from the excellent instruction and support provided by the staff at USTKD. Many of the instructors have been in the business for 8-10+ years and are really great with the kids. In terms of value, there are no long-term contracts (they go up to 6 months - so nothing like the 36 mo. contracts I've seen at other places) that we had to sign. Unlike other places, the staff here told me on day one all of the costs that would be required and all of the milestones that my children would reach. If you want a nurturing environment that stresses personal development of both physical and mental aspects, this is the place. It does not stress competition, but the head instructor is a 10 time national champion and knows how to train for competition. Their philosophy is that a one-size-fits-all approach does not work. Every student comes in for a reason, and the staff at USTKD are wonderful in figuring out what that reason is and putting the student on the right path. In short - highest marks!
Pros: Great atmosphere; eye on safety; good facilities and class schedule; excellent value
Cons: 40 minute classes (but they are offered 5x per week)
