As I was watching classes at Pallens Martial Arts I was able to see the joy in the students eyes. They all look like they were having a lot of fun. I always thought of karate as a hard core sport, but after watching one class I noticed that it is fun and not all about beating people up. You can learn discipline and a lot of respect. The San Leandro instructor is great with children, teens, and adults so try it out. You won't regret it.
Pros: respectful, thoughtful, understanding
