Karate International has been an extremely positive experience for our family. We were skeptical at first as to how our very wiggly 4.5 year old would learn body control and self discipline from this experience. One and a half years later, our son just earned his blue belt, is significantly calmer and has increased self-confidence. His respect of Hanshi and the instructors has helped him with the transition to school and with his behavior at home. It has been a long road for us, but we see the benefits and would recommend Hanshi’s program to others!
