Commment 1: this place is great
Commment 2: the school is headed by mr. ray gomez a 5th degree black belt. he is a very patient teacher. tae kwon do self defence stretching and aerobics. highly recommend....
Commment 3: Our 3 year old really loves it here the staff is so professional and caring. I totally recommend American Karate to anyon interested in getting their little ones involved in karate and selfdefense.
Commment 4: My son is 8 and started at American Karate and Self Defense a few months ago. This most impressive thing Ive noticed is how the instructors seemlessly go from teaching advanced students then beginners. Also they are able to teach the kids that their achievements will be rewarded but rewards arent given just for showing up. The kids have to earn their stripes yet are handled kindly at the same time. Great place for children to learn.
Commment 5: American Karate is a great place for kids and parents. I love this place. Mr. and Mrs. Gomez are awesome teachers. They are very caring of their students. They will work around your schedule. I have been learning karate with American Karate for one year and I do not want to go any where else. The environment is very friendly. I have made a many friends boosted my self confidence and my social life is better than what it was before. I am learning many tricks and techniques of self defense. As a girl I need this and my teachers are wonderfully teaching me these. I am always looking forward to going to karate. Soif you get a chance check American Karate out. You will love it!!!
Commment 6: My daughter is in the 2nd grade and is 7 years old. She has been attending American Karate for 3 months now and has learned so much. Mr. and Mrs. Gomez not only teach karate they teach respect for others self discipline and the courage to protect yourself. This class has enriched my daughters life in ways that I cannot put into words. The main reason I enrolled her in classes was because of balance issues and her balance has improved but she has gotten so much more than improved balance from American Karate Self Defense. My daughters selfesteem has improved beyond comprehension due to her success in obtaining her gold belt in this short period of time. Hailey knows that Mr. and Mrs. Gomez would not have given her the stripes that she needed to get her gold belt if she hadnt exhibit the skills required which helped boost her selfesteem and selfvalue. My daughter thinks that she can do ANYTHING now and what else could a parent desire for their little girl?
Commment 7: My son has been a student of American Karate for the past 4 years. Ray and Mary Gomez are fantastic. You can tell instantly that they love the kids and love what they do. You get a fantastic sense of family from everyone at the school. The experience has made a great improvement in my sons ability to stay focused at school as well as at home. If you want a school and instructors that care about your child and will teach them how to deal with everyday situations then this is the school for you!
Commment 8: My son has been a member of American Karate for 2 months and I have seen great improvement. Hes more confident active aspires to more and loves it. I have recently erolled myself and cant wait for all my hard work to show.
Commment 9: Rays American Karate School has a home like feeling of its own. You are treated very welcome the minute you walk through the door. They have a great variety in age of the instructors which I feel is important to address the range of age groups they teach. Mrs. Gomez is very calm and patient especially with the 46 age group. She takes time out to teach each child individually. Mr. Gomez has a way of talking to the Little Dragons that draws out the kids interest. He asks the kids good questions in kid language that gets them thinking. The rest of the instructors are absolutely awesome. This is defintely a karate school that you can stay with throughout your karate years.
Commment 10: if youre just starting out you can go as hard and fast or as slow and soft as you want. you set your own pace and your own goals. the instructors wont push you too far and wont let you slack off either. theres usually a black belt around to give you individual instruction on anything youre not getting in class. if youre an accomplished martial artist this is one of the best schools around. several black belts from other schools come to our school to get training theyre not getting from their own. i started working out at AKSD when i was 36 without any interest in working out in the past and now im one of the instructors. this place really makes you feel like youre at home.
Commment 11: I must say American Karate Self Defense is the best thing to happen to my son. The school teachs self respect respect for others as well as goals... I am pride to say that my son is a part of Rays American Karate Self Defense.
Commment 12: My daughter is 9 years old and has been attending American Karate for 18 months. McKenzie loves going to karate and even loves helping with other classes. Mr. and Mrs. Gomez are great instructors and have the patience of Job! We are very thankful for everything they do and we feel very lucky to be a part of such a special place!
