My son (now 5) has been going to Kicks Karate for almost a year now. Prior to, we looked at a few others in the area, but they were only a few steps above a daycare / after-school program. Kicks Karate runs a solid program that's focused on structure and discipline.
The lessons and organized activities are engaging and very well thought out. I'm very pleased to say that the majority of the instructors I've seen have been there since we enrolled.
Mr. Misha is an excellent teacher (and leader). Not only in level of commitment and care for students on the mats, but he's also very proactive in reaching out beyond the classroom. I'm appreciative of the phone calls asking how things are in general and how my son is doing.
I would also like to comment on the cost aspect of Kick Karate which many are vocal about. The monthly cost and additional belt test fees might seem excessive, but as the old adage goes, "You get what you pay for." The program, staff, and environment are all top-notch in my opinion. I don't mind paying a little more for quality.
