Class was great because we tried new things. My favorite thing yesterday was playing the game and earning my star on my stripe.

My son had gained so much self confidence after attending only 4 weeks of classes. His level of respect and discipline continues to increase as his training does. The instructors and staff are great with the kids and go above and beyond to make sure they know your child’s needs.

Great group of folks running this business. My son loves coming to karate here. I've never seen him so excited about anything, and we've tried several sports and activities. Says a lot about AFMA. Very impressed with all of the instructors. They have patience and go the extra mile for those with special needs as well, making it possible for those individuals to participate like everyone else (just from my observations). That's one of the things I love about this place. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to try out karate. They make it a fun environment to learn.

My son got confidence, overcome shy and is developing leadership qualities. He completed one year at American Family Martial Arts. Now he is in green belt. He loves karate and it's his passion. I recommend other parents also to join their kids to AFMA.

Mr. Foreman thought of an effective way to get the kids to think independently vs. following others. He gave them each different moves in Korean. We also like how he gives pneumonics for them to remember the words and actions. Evidently it's working and our girls are enjoying the classes very much!

Visited yesterday! My son will begin lessons Tuesday! We are really excited and everyone there is so nice and they work so well with the kiddos. The instructors seem to really enjoy the kids, while teaching life skills.

My boys have been members of American Family Martial Arts for the past 3 years. It has been absolutely amazing for them.The instructors are knowledgeable and know how to work with students. The instructors not only make them better martial artists but also better people. My oldest son has special needs. SBN Tullier and Mr. Foreman have been great with him. They are patient when they need to be and understand my son's needs. Since my boys have been taking karate their anxiety level has lowered and their confidence has soared. It has been a pleasure to be part of the AFMA family.

Parents and teachers both overwhelmingly agree that self-discipline is one of the most important skills anyone can have – yet relatively few believe they’ve been successful at helping their own children demonstrate it. However, it goes without saying that children […]

Tricking is a training discipline that combines kicks with flips and twists from gymnastics and martial arts. Commonly called trickers, practitioners demonstrate such techniques as the 540 kick, the corkscrew, the flashkick, the butterfly twist and a cheat 540. It aims to achieve an aesthetic display of different combinations of “tricks”. Trickers focus mainly on linking […]

I can’t tell you how many times I have a parent tell me, “Little Suzie’s grades are falling, so I’m taking karate away.” It’s frustrating for me as an instructor because I KNOW how much good martial arts does for a child. Increased discipline, respect and confidence are just a few of the benefits. While […]

5 TIPS for staying safe and having fun during Halloween  Halloween is such a fun time of the year for children (and some adults); but when children encounter tricks instead of treats, this holiday can become very scary – and not just because of the decorations and frightening costumes. Abductions, bullying, candy that has been […]

If your child is being bullied at school, there is so little a parent can do, that we often feel helpless and powerless. Perhaps the school administration is aware but that 5 minute session in the guidance counselor’s office hasn’t done any good. October is National Bully Defense Month and American Family Martial Arts has […]

The life skill this month at American Family Martial Arts is teaching children how to act with integrity. This skill  is vital for their development. Without integrity, children break promises, lie, and have no concern for others. Integrity means to adhere to moral and ethical principles, and if taught correctly, children will take these lessons with […]
