Side kicks karate is great. They actually feel like they're family. They take special interest in the students and always are there to help with anything that is needed. I'm really glad I had my grandson start at sidekicks

My son has been a part of this studio for many, many years and is about to achieve his black belt. Brian and Nicole not only teach karate and self defense but foster respect, confidence, responsibility, discipline and focus. In the time that we have been a part of this studio, I have watched my son grow and change and they have been more than just instructors, they are a vital part of his life and who he is. They are the most caring people and genuinely love what they do. Try a class, you will not be disappointed!
