My 7 year has been training here since he was 3 1/2. He started in the cubs classes. All the lessons Sensei teaches, especially self-discipline, can be carried over to school, sports, and home. I see how it has helped my son in so many ways. He loves coming to class. All the instructors are wonderful! I would recommend this program to other parents who are looking for an activity for their children that builds confidence, focus, and character.
