See What Our Community Members Say About Our Programs
It all started when our concern was the lack of physical exercise our child might have. So when we met Sensei Callahan to talk about goals, we simply hoped that our child would spend some time here doing physical exercise. Then in the past almost four years, we’ve witnessed the dramatic progress and achievements our kid has been making, not only in Karate techniques, but in dedication, confidence, communication, teamwork, courage, courtesy, and leadership skills, just name a few. A great example is leadership skills. our child used to be a quiet girl. But through karate practice, leadership training and instructor program, she becomes assistant instructor, she demonstrates the ability to lead and to teach, and can confidently give orders and train lower level students. In April 2021, she made black belt achievement, now we are very confident that our child will continuously make great progress. We sincerely thank Sensei Callahan and his staff, for excellent guidance, training, and support!
Kim Corn, mom, son age 7
People have been telling us how amazed they are with the difference they see in Jordan since he started taking karate at Shotokan Karate Leadership School. Before he used to be quiet and hidden, he kept to himself and now he's a chatter monster! It's unbelievable; he's so much more confident and sure of himself. We are so happy, thank you so much, Sensei Callahan.
Arise Campbell, mom, son age 6
I've talked to other instructors and none of them sat down and talked to me about the things that needed to be said the way you did. I felt very comfortable with your presentation and with you being my son's instructor. What you are doing is very positive and if there is any way I can help I will.
