I am a student of TKC. I have been there for years. From the very beginning through the present, TKC has been a great place for me and my whole family to train. It is an atmosphere of truly dedicated martial artists who bring everything they have to every class they teach. Master Fariborz (the school owner and seventh degree black belt who is in charge of the studio) is a truly hands-on teacher. He teaches numerous classes every week, even sparring the students on a regular basis (something very few school masters in my experience are willing to do). But more than that, he is always available to help with almost any problem, regardless of whether it is ""martial arts"" related or not. If you need help with a back kick, he is available to give you a few pointers. If you want to talk about a personal problem, I have yet to see him turn someone away. He is, in short, a dedicated teacher to all his students, and a true mentor to those who have entrusted themselves to his care.
Not only that, but TKC is one of the few places in the world where master teachers - people like Sensei Benny ""the Jet"" Urquidez, Richard Norton, Grandmaster Taejoon Lee, Peter Cunningham, and a multitude of others - congregate regularly and come to share their hard-won wisdom with any who are interested. The classes taught by these men are extras, that is, they are not necessarily included in the TKC curriculum, but they are almost always taught for free in spite of this. Amazing!
Most of all, TKC is not merely about punching and kicking. It is about creating true martial artists and making people better than they were when they first walked in the doors. Master Fariborz makes it clear in every class he teaches that people are the most important part of TKC. Not only that, but I have taken the instructors classes and know from personal experience that his most pressing concern is that everyone be taught in a way that will be safe, educational, fun, and edifying. These values are inculcated in TKC's staff from the bottom up.
TKC is, flat out, the best martial arts studio I have ever been privileged to participate in and be a part of. I am proud to be a member of the TKC family, and do not hesitate to recommend it to others at every chance I get.
