The BEST karate studio in Florida. My four year old loves it! She has found serious confidence and self control, as well as a nice strong punch:) I highly recommend all if our friends come here.

Top notch dojo! They care about the children learning and understanding of not only karate fundamentals, but basic self respect and discipline which is lacking in most youth today. My granddaughters love attending classes. Kyoshi and Sinsai Coy are fare, but expect the children to put forth the effort required to move forward with their newly learned skills. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of entering their children in karate.

The best Karate school my son and I have ever had the privilege of attending. My son earned his black belt here after many years of hard work and training. They are absolutely excellent with children, reinforcing the invaluable lessons of respect, self discipline and focus. They are also great with adults of all ages, promoting a can-do attitude and friendship and teamwork amongst students present at no other dojo I have witnessed. Proud to be a student here of five years running. Ous!

I don't have enough words to describe how amazing Kioshy and Sensei Koi are; they have been a blessing to my son started 3 year old and after a year I can see the progress he has accomplished, balance, discipline, interaction, learning to wait his turn, focus... like I've said before, not eough words!! Thumbs up!!!

Kyoshi and Sensei Coy are absolutely amazing. Our son attended their dojo for 7 months and learned so much. Not just about Karate, but about respect, appreciation and responsibility. I'd recommend this dojo to anyone, young or old. Well organized, always busy and focused. In addition, they both know ALL of the children's names and make each child feel welcome and involved. They also interact with parents and make them feel welcome. Most importantly, they legitimately care about each child and are true masters of their art. We are a military family and are transferring, otherwise we would stay with C.D. Williamson's dojo. If you go to this dojo, you will not regret it!

To the best Karate Dojo anywhere, thanks for a great week at Summer Camp! My 2 green belts are passed out snoozing from a tough, but inspiring week of training. I don't think I've ever seen so many professionals enjoy what they do as much as your Instructors! You guys rock!

No matter what these people will be my second family... This karate studio is much more than just people teaching your children how to punch or kick, these people will turn out to be your family. I recommend cd and his staff to anyone. " we are a black belt school, we more motivated , we are dedicated, were on a quest to be our best..." And they live up to that standard . Check them out for a free class and tell them sensei Tiffany sent you :)

Attendance Card Responsibility!

It is our duty as a school to set the standard for our students.  We want to be sure that all students  youth (10-14) or adult are pulling their attendance card before class starts.  In failure to pull your card, you will not get credit for that class.  This is the responsibility that we put in place for our students.  Asking to add classes the day after or any other situation will not be accepted.

3 tips to help remember:

  1. Be on time
  2. Directly go to the card box on your way in.
  3. Look at your card everyday, look at the dates, see how many you need to reach your next goal!

 

___________________________________________________

Others want to know your experience!

Let’s face it, every decision we make when it comes to the things we do or where we go starts with Google.  We all pay attention to the reviews each individual business acquires.  Please help others know what your experience has been like at our school!

Other parents have:

Talked about the cleanliness of the school

 

Give instructor shout outs

 

or even what Martial Arts has done for your family.

Social Media Presence

You guys are the reason we even have the opportunity to be successful and we are so thankful for that.  I just wanted to let you know about a couple things that will be happening around our school:

Every Monday- Kickin It with Sensei Coy:  this is a live Facebook video to let parents know whats going on at the dojo the upcoming week!

1st of the month we will take some photos of our students during classes to help branding with our school and to show emotion at our school.

2-3 Times per week we will do a Facebook Live video of our classes. This gives your child the opportunity to be a superstar while again letting the community know how we teach kids, youth and adults, Martial arts and life skills!

 

Our goal as a karate school is to instill quality Martial Arts to all of our students and the community!

 

If you have any questions please see Sensei Coy!  *** If you would not like your child to participate, please let us know.

____________________________________________________________________

 



As of August, 1st 2019

If you do not come to belt graduation on the assigned date and you wish to have a private graduation you will have an additional fee.

Too many students have been missing the assigned graduation date.  Please be sure to mark calendars for assigned testing days.

Orange, Purple and Blue Belt Ranks=$40 + graduation fee.

Green and Brown=$100 (2 hour test) + graduation fee.


No Phones during classes!

Parent’s we need your help during class time.  When you bring your child to class we want our parent’s focus on their child and what they are doing.  Cell phones have been a great invention but they tend to get in the way at times.  We want our children to feel important and know their parent is watching them on the mat.  This is a great way to keep up with holding them accountable with what they learned and behavior.  I think we all can benefit from putting away the phones for 30 minutes.  By all means, if you have to take a call, please step outside and do so.

 

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

​Cash Graduation Fee’s (save $$$)

Pay your belt graduation fee in cash and receive a $5 buck discount.


 


Things to Remember

1. Please park in the rear leave our up front parking for our new guests.

2. Turn cell phones off or on vibrate during class.

3. Please don’t stand by the wall next to the mat. It is distracting to the students and the instructors.

4. No food or drinks in the dojo – PLEASE!

5.  There are no regular classes on the last Friday of the month.  We reserve this for belt graduations only.

6. ALL patches must be on all Gis that you wear to class. Black Gis have to have chest and sleeve patches.
