“Before beginning karate Colby was having difficulties in self-esteem and listening. The short time Colby has been involved in martial arts I have seen a huge increase in his self-esteem. His listening skills are slowly improving at home but during classes his behavior is really improving. I am confident that with time and continuation of martial arts Colby will become a young man with good self-esteem and confidence.” --Colby's Mom

“I would definitely recommend Master Chris's martial arts Academy to a friend because the staff is awesome the workouts challenging and the results are amazing. Master Chris, Mr. Chase, and Master Jay are all very helpful during the classes, always making sure you things right. The workouts are fun, but challenging, too. Before I started Master Chris's Academy, I was very shy and could never hold a conversation. Now I start talking to people and feel more confident.
You should take the classes if you want to be stronger, faster, and more self-developed.” --Rachel R. Teenager
