    Master Ken has a heart of a teacher and a sole of Lao Tzu. He’s patient and lets the student learn at their pace.

    A Shining Star: Our Review of Mr. Kenneth at Friends Family Martial Arts
    From the moment our children stepped into Friends Family Martial Arts, Mr. Kenneth has been an absolute gem. Their journey began with zero experience in any discipline, and we were initially apprehensive about how they would adapt. Thankfully, those worries quickly dissipated thanks to Mr. Kenneths exceptional guidance.
    His professionalism shines through in every interaction. He creates a structured and focused learning environment, while simultaneously fostering a sense of camaraderie and fun. This balance has been instrumental in motivating our children and keeping them engaged.
    But Mr. Kenneths influence extends far beyond physical skills. He instills in his students valuable life lessons like discipline, respect, and perseverance. Weve witnessed a remarkable growth in our childrens moral compass, and we firmly believe that Mr. Kenneths positive reinforcement plays a significant role in this development.
    The confidence Mr. Kenneth has nurtured in our children is truly remarkable. They approach challenges with a newfound determination, and their self-belief continues to soar. This newfound confidence extends beyond the dojo, radiating into their academics and everyday interactions.
    If youre looking for an instructor who combines professionalism with genuine care, then Mr. Kenneth is the shining star youve been searching for. His dedication to his students physical and moral development is truly unmatched. We wholeheartedly recommend Friends Family Martial Arts and, especially, the incredible Mr. Kenneth!

    The instructor is patient and kind and is willing to go over instructions in different ways to insure all his students understand. He is competent and knowledgeable. My kids enjoy going to class early to warm up and get extra guidance on how to perfect their forms. The classes are never the same, as there are a variety of skills being taught, from self defense to forms to stick fighting to how to fall safely, etc. The instructor also teaches his students to not start fights, be good citizens, etc. I highly recommend Master Ken and his classes.
