I belive that Integrity makes our school stand out. Our moral principles are what drives us to provide the best experience for our students and parents. With 33 years of personal martial arts experince, we pride ourselves on quality instruction because we honestly care about the well being of our students and strive to develop well rounded individuals through rigorous training and life skill lessons.
For the 23 years of service that I have been in business Hillside, I have enjoyed watching the positive growth and developement in our students. The best feeling is having former students give testimonials about the life lesson they learned at a young age to new existing students, and taking the time to asist current youngsters in their Martial arts experience. Having someone show appeciation for a positive impact on their life is the greatest gift anyone can recieve.

The typical process begins with building rapor. Anyyone who starts some new likes to feel comfortable with their coach or instructor. It is the job of the instructor to make our students feel comfortable so rapor bulding is the 1st part of this process. this process is done being in the first class. Our intructors start out by introducing themselves, giving a tour of the school, introducing the student to hisnor her classmates, and teaching them a few basic things they will need to know in class. The next class the instructor reviews the materials and continues the new lesson. after a few weeks of instruction, the child's parent is contacted to inform them of their child's progress to enquire if they see a positive change in the child and if there is anything else we can do to give them an awesome experience.
I developed a passion for teaching martial arts in the early 1990s. I was a junior instuctor at my dojo, and I remember that there was a child who was competing in his first tournament that weekend, and he was terrified. His dad asked if I could give him some words of encouragement and help him practice; which I was happy to do. The next week that child came in with his 1st place prize. He was so happy with his achievement and I will never forget how proud I felt being apart of his accomplishment, nor the look of his father's face in his proud dad moment. It was that moment that I developed a passion for teaching. Over the years I have witnessed time and time again with my own students the possitive impact martial arts can have on a persons life. Not only am I blessed to posses such a incredible gift, but its truly a blessing to be apart of someone elses success story.
In just a few words, always ask for a trail class to see if the potenial student feels comfortable with the class and likes the instruction.
