The examples of how my son has grown from a 12 year old boy who asked for karate lessons for his birthday, to an outstanding mature young man that has a 1st degree black belt cannot be explained in just a paragraph or two. He leads by example for others, and steps up in ways I never expected. There was a tournament last year that he had taken a 1st place in forms and had received a trophy. He noticed a young child, much younger than himself, who had not placed or received an award. The child was very sad and without a word from anyone my son went up to him gave him his trophy and told him he was doing a great job and to keep working hard. I asked my son why he had done that and he said that he thought he deserved a trophy for his hard work. This is just one of the many examples I have seen in my son as he has grown while at American Sport Karate Centers. Miss Kim, Mr. Clifton and everyone at ASKC has helped my son grow in to an amazing young man. As an even bigger surprise to me my son went out the day after his 16th birthday and got a job without us even suggesting it might be a good idea. He makes good choices because of everything he has learned at ASKC! Love you guys! I can never say that enough!
"We have been a part of the karate family for just two years now. Having a mixture of special needs students within the classes has been a positive experience. It is nice that everyone can work at their own ability and not feel left behind which builds confidence. Because karate is so structured, the students are able to focus and feel more comfortable with the repetition as they learn their kata. We have enjoyed watching our son grow mentally and physically with karate and cherish the friendships he has made."
"My son has gained more confidence in himself since joining American Sport Karate Centers only 8 months ago. They have encouraged and helped him to be more responsible for himself and his things (gear, homework, chores, etc.). I've seen an increase in the level of respect he has for others of all ages. Everyone at American Sport Karate Centers makes us feel like family."
"American Sport Karate Centers is the kind of place you take your child but you end up feeling inspired so much you want to learn also. I can’t say enough about the outstanding instruction in every class. We looked at several places before choosing American Sport Karate Centers, and could not be happier with the choice we made. It's got the structure and the discipline that you want your child to learn and be apart of, but you don't feel intimidated coming in. If you are looking for a place where anyone can excel, get an awesome workout, learn new skills, enhance self-confidence and feel like you belong -- this is the place!"
"The instructors at American Sport Karate Centers are wonderful. They have lots of patience and understanding for individuals with special needs. It has helped my son and I both in and out of class. So glad we found this school- we both love it!!"
"American Sport Karate Center is a wonderful Dojo. Everyone who works there is dedicated to not only helping others learn Martial Arts but they also take the time to listen and help others, especially children, in areas they are struggling. The skills; physical, emotional and discipline, that a child can gain from learning Martial Arts with the ASKC staff will carry them through life. At American Sport Karate Center you feel like family."
"My boys have been going here for over 3 years and we love it. It is a great environment for growing and learning. It provides a family atmosphere that we love and the instructors are hands on and very involved with the kids. They know is student as an individual and their unique learning style!"
"My family has been taking Karate at American Sport Karate Centers for over 4 years now. We have become part of their family and love every minute of it. The instructors are supportive and teach Karate in a positive yet firm method. Give it a shot. We did and now we have found a sport our kids love. We give it 5 stars."
"The instructors at American Sport Karate Centers really care about my kids in class and in life. They provide my kids with wonderful life skills in addition to karate skills. I have seen my kids gain confidence, self-discipline, and respect for others."
