We've been going here 4.5 years! We love the instructors and their curriculum for the kids is great. The kids soak up everything they teach, I'm very impressed. Looking forward to many more years to come.

Ms. Pendley is great! Lets me go at my own pace, tailors lessons to my goals and learning style. Very understanding about the anxiety I suffer that trips me up sometimes. I arrive to my lessons early and get to see her and Mr. B. with the kids' class, and they are very patient with them, and they make their classes fun while still making sure the kids are doing their moves correctly. They are respectful to their students of all ages and gender, and emphasize that to the students. I take private lessons.

Not just a school a family. Our kids now 9 and 15 have been attending the school for just over a year. The changes we have seen in them have been incredible. Just the boost in their self confidence alone has been amazing. This school is a positive place for kids to stay in shape and learn discipline, respect and self defense. The students are also taught to encourage and help fellow students. The wonderful instructors not only care about how the kids are doing in their class but also care about how they are doing in school and at home. They want to help the kids be the best that they can be in life. We looked for a long time for a school that did not focus on competition (being the best) as we wanted to find a school that taught kids to always strive be their best. This school is it!! We feel very welcome when we come in for the kids classes. We are encouraged to stay and watch if we desire (we usually do). The positive attitude that is taught is contagious, you can't help but feel more positive yourself when you leave. Both of our kids have health issues that at times make it difficult for them to participate 100% in class but the instructors are great at working with them during those times. We feel that because of what they have learned here they know that they can achieve anything if they are determined and work hard!! We just can't wait until our 2 year old is old enough to start taking classes!! If you are thinking about putting your kids in martial arts classes come in and check out the school you won't be disappointed, we definitely weren't!!!

If you are looking for a school that participates in tournaments and hands out trophies to make you feel good - or a school that 'sells' you a blackbelt - I would suggest looking elsewhere. If you are serious about learning self defense techniques that WORK and getting into the best shape of your life then Academy of Kempo Martial Arts just might be what you're looking for. The instructors are top notch and serious about helping every student succeed in meeting their personal training goals - so when you are advanced in belt level you know it's because you earned it! This school has a great family atmosphere! You owe it to yourself to stop in and check it out.

I have a four year old and an eight year old, both girls that started going here in September. They love it and this will be a long term activity for them as the instructors couldn't be better. I wouldn't change a thing.
