"I just wanted you to know how very impressed we are with your staff. My son started in June and I’ve attended two of his sessions so far and can’t say enough good things about his instructors. He doesn’t easily pay the most attention and this is the first time he’s done something like this. Each instructor was so patient, nice and encouraging! "
"Once I heard about the private training, I began thinking that this might be the thing that I need to improve in and better understand the techniques in self-defense as well as eventually other areas in Taekwondo.
The benefits are many. Most importantly the one-on-one training has been great. Not only am I getting dedicated instruction in each technique, but I get great feedback if I am doing the technique correctly. I am also learning not only the nuances of various techniques but also some of the practical approaches to self-defense as well. I have found the private training extremely beneficial and very worthwhile and look forward to continuing with it." Darcy
"Our six year old son has been doing Tae Kwon Do for about six months now. We've noticed that he seems to channel his energy more appropriately, he is learning to accept responsibility for his actions, and he demonstrates more respect for others, and for himself.
We know that much of the credit for these positive changes goes to his training in Tae Kwon Do.
When we encountered one particularly bumpy spot on the parenting road, I approached you, Master Gommels, because so many others have spoken so highly of your insight and genuine interest in helping kids do well in ALL areas of development: physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational. Your questions of me were poignant, and your advice to me has yielded immeasurable results. We're thankful to have found an organization with values consistent with our own!"
Sincerely, A Happy Mom
"Our son at age 14 was diagnosed with Aspergers (a form of autism). At first we tried counseling. The doctors were knowledgeable, but we didn’t see the results that we had hoped for. We hear that martial arts training builds self-esteem and confidence. So we decided to give it a try.
Our son has been training in Taekwondo at the Martial Art Fitness Center for over 10 years now. He is now more outgoing and has an easier time communicating with people. He has received his black belt and is an instructor now. We are expecting that he will gain even more confidence through this leadership program, so that he will be better able to function in the adult world."
