    Sensei Mike is very patient and caring. He knows how to teach karate and the other students are nice and friendly. Small school so we get attention.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

3 students just competed in our Regional Karate Tournament in Brooklyn. All had fun and gained great experience.

We are a friendly environment where everyones goal is to learn karate. We have respect for one another and I personally supervise all sparring to ensure the safety of all students.

What do they want to learn and how much effort are they willing to expend. I am a very patient and well trained Instuctor. Lazy students should not apply.
