    I have been a student of Grand Master S.H. Yu's for 7 months now and have enjoyed every minute. What I like most about my experience thus far, is the fact that all of the instructors at the school do not try to mold you into a single image. Some people and kick high and others cannot (myself included). The instructors teach me at my pace and for my capabilities. I also like the fact that all of the instructors are extremely knowledgeable. They are all mild-mannered, patient and are excellent with younger students as well. I'm a parent of a 4 year old and next year I'm planning on enrolling him. This is a great school and a great place to learn about your body, yourself and martial arts.

    My son was a student for many months at the school before we moved out of state. Let me say this is by far the best karate school ever on the planet! I was overly pleased with the structured skills taught by Master Yu. They were impressive! The fact that the energy in the building is extremely positive had me sold upon entering. Master Yu's personality is simply the kindest person you'll ever meet. The discipline is shown in such a healthy way that the students automatically have the highest respect for their instructors. Master Yu sets the tone for being a great leader so gracefully. My son had nothing but respect for Master Yu and the other instructors. Every time he attended class he was intrigued with excitement and dedication. He looked forward to going everyday because he was actually learning. But more importantly, I noticed that he was listening which was something he failed to do at times. The other thing I admired that students had to do were writing assignments to show their diligence and how hard work is earned and not given. The teachings and guidance taught here at this martial arts school is bar to none! The authenticity of the foundation to the basics is set apart from any other karate school my son had attended. The bonus that you receive for being a student here is that Grand Master Yu teaches and passes on ancient traditional martial art styles and skills( nothing you can learn about in a book). How cool is that! My son has developed the greatest skills in martial arts and he applies them to his everyday life. He looks forward to continuing his journey to being the best he can be in life using martial arts.
