The instructor, George, is wonderful. He’s very detailed in his explanation, very patient with the children, but firm as well. My son loves attending his classes.
It gave my son not only confidence but coordination and made him more goal orientated.

My first teaching job was as a soccer coach when I was in high school.
After I became a black belt in the 1980s I was teaching karate and other martial arts.
In the 1990s I became certified as a special education teacher.
I have been teaching ever since.
All. But particularly special education students .

Dont be fooled by big talk and flash. The bigger the talk the smaller the martial artist.
