I enrolled my grandchildren here at Total Ryu. Recently we were at a parent teacher conference and the teacher said, Whatever you, DO NOT take him out of karate, he is so helpful, kind and considerate, the program has helped his learning and his attention span, keep him in karate for the rest of his life. If a parent says Karate is too expensive, I'm just going to put my kid in baseball instead I would reply Isn't their life worth it? If they are going to go do baseball, make sure you do martial arts first. Learn the life skills like respect, teamwork and controlling your emotions first. At first, his parents thought that karate might bring out more physical, aggression. But it has been completely opposite. Before he used to get mad and go around and punch things when he was upset or when someone says something mean to him. Now amazingly it doesn't bother him, he is centered and more self controlled.
