“I love Valley Karate because I think all of the kids are nice and if I forget a move, they try telling me what I need to do. Karate helps me because if someone is attacking me I know different moves so they don’t see it coming. Karate is special because Martial Arts is beautiful.”
“In the months that our almost 7 year old daughter has been attending Valley Karate, we’ve seen a lot of growth in her. She is learning about commitment and responsibility, as well as respect. The kind of teaching and learning that she experiences is very different than what she gets at school or home. Valley Karate gives her a place of her own, independence, and a sense of belonging. There is a camaraderie that she’s not yet felt before. As parents, we feel it’s a safe and trustworthy environment for her. We are grateful that Valley Karate gives our daughter, and ourselves, such a comfortable feeling.”
