This program is wonderful. All of the teachers are great, especially the director (Mr. Sidner) and his second-in-command, Mr. Tobin. Together they have created an atmosphere of support, encouragement, and learning. My rather shy son, age 6, has learned to step out of his shell and develop more confidence, and has even shown some leadership qualities - after only a couple of months. It isn't just karate and fighting moves, it's practical self-defense and life skills. We couldn't be more pleased.
