We've been going to Modern Martial Arts for years. Both of our children have learned to be more persistant, disciplined, and confident. Their agility and strenght have increased and they love that they have a skill not everyone has. I love that they have a tool that may be used to protect themselves one day! The teachers at MMA are caring and attentive but insist that martial arts be treated respectfully. Between our kids and my husband, we've tried every class, parents night out, and summer camp and can say the quality of experience is high in everything they do.

I joined MMA when I was 6 years old. My karate teachers taught me self-defense skills I can use at school and in everyday life. Before joining I was very shy and didn't like participating in school. MMA helped me feel more confident in a lot of what I do. Now I'm able to go to school, make new friends and raise my hand in class without being afraid. My karate classes are fun and exciting. Every day I learn something new and get to practice with my friends. I love improving my skills and receiving higher belts with different colors. I never miss my class!
