"My son attends Allen’s American Martial Arts regularly. It has helped add structure as well as focused goals and confidence. Without the guidance he has at the dojo he would be another couch potato lost in the video game world."

"I now have two daughters in Allen’s American Martial Arts. My oldest started at the age of 3 and is now 9. She has gained self-discipline and I love that she has a goal that she is trying to reach. My other daughter is 3 and attends Tiny Tigers. It is so fun to watch the little ones. It teaches self control and confidence along with being able to defend themselves if ever needed. The staff is wonderful and truly cares about the students and about them learning the right techniques."

""The staff at Allen’s American Martial Arts are excellent at working with all different kids...They have been wonderful at helping my 8 year old student to focus better when it is required. "

"The staff at Allen’s American Martial Arts are excellent at working with all different kids & their different personalities. They are patient, but do not allow young minds to get distracted. The staff is wonderful about correcting the children’s mistakes in a way the child/student can understand. They have been wonderful at helping my 8 year old student to focus better when it is required. He has grown tremendously since he came to his first trial class last year. The staff works with him and modifies things appropriately if needed. My child has become my confident in his own abilities as well as more confident in the knowledge that he can overcome his mistakes and missteps on the mat and in life. "

"The biggest lesson Andrew has learned in life so far, he learned from you. We were just talking about his black belt exam a few days ago...my proudest moment for him was when you asked him what he had learned through the whole process of earning his black belt and he replied "I give up too easily...I hope on the tough days you're able to remember that what you do really matters."

"The biggest lesson Andrew has learned in life so far, he learned from you. We were just talking about his black belt exam a few days ago. He almost let an opportunity pass to play in the district honor's orchestra this year. His excuse...."It's too hard." I told him I was disappointed by that answer and that my proudest moment for him was when you asked him what he had learned through the whole process of earning his black belt and he replied "I give up too easily". I could see it got him thinking, and later that night I heard him practicing and recording in the basement... I hope on the tough days you're able to remember that what you do really matters."

"I found the class to be supportive, positive and motivating. Kevin shares his knowledge, offers his guidance, and will gently push you when he knows you can give more. It was exactly what I needed. I have been going for 15 weeks so far and have lost 32 pounds."

"I love Kevin too! I began walking about a yr and a half ago and I saw mild results. And then by pure luck we stumbled onto this great program with Kevin, and he has whipped me into the best shape of my life. I feel great after each class, and the results are no longer mild, but extreme."

"Never thought that our autistic twins could learn Martial Arts and we were wrong. Sensei Ra’chelle has her ways to bring out hidden potentials in our children. Individual class is a good way for each of our kids to learn at their own pace. A group class is also a fun experience and chance to interact with others. Thank you everyone at Allen’s American Martial Arts for showing the way that our kids can do the impossible."
