Positive: Communication ,  Professionalism ,  Quality ,  Value Thought that my Great grandson would be taught just some karate moves and that would be that, but he is also being instructed in courtesy, respect, self reliance and good work ethics! Could not be happier with Brian Seetge and this class. I hope my great grandson keeps his interest for a ling time.

The staff at sidekicks are truly amazing. My special needs child has grown so much since he started this program. He is more confident, more excited, more self sufficient and less afraid to try new things. Their bullyproof system has been amazing for my little guy. I am so thankful to sidekicks and I am excited to continue to see my son grow and learn from them. Thank you sidekicks!!
