My son has been attending Shihan's classes for nearly 2 years now. Within this time, he has quickly matured and his behavior has improved so much (I almost cant believe it!)! Not only does he learn Martial Arts, he also learns how to be a great person and good friend, discipline, manners, strength, confidence, and so much more from this program. I really enjoy watching him grow in every aspect of life! Ive also attended parent workshops that Shihan provides, which have helped me tremendously! I highly recommend Skillz Dynamic Martial Arts, you WONT be disappointed!

Love skillz dynamic martial arts! My son has been here over a year. Shihan is amazing and this program has helped so much with my sons confidence, leadership skills and key assets like goal setting. It’s more than just martial arts it teaches them life skills that are essential to success even into adulthood that are not being taught anywhere else in their daily schedules. Highly recommend!

There are several reasons why parents should look for this program, the discipline, respect, the mental or body development but the one I like the most is the confidence Denny develop on his students/ninjas due to his disciplined fun way to teach them. My daughter who used to have confidence issues at school is developing in several different aspects of her life

Skillz Dynamic Martial Arts is a positive atmosphere where your child learns skills that will help them through and into their adult life. My Son is learning how to be a leader, have confidence, work with others, and many more! I love watching him grow and learn every week!

My Daughter has been attending class with Shihan for four years. She has transformed from a shy, quiet, unsure of herself girl to a strong, confident, expressive ninja who stands up in class to profess her skills and is always the first to raise her hand with the loudest voice. The skills and lessons have been invaluable. This isn't your run of the mill karate class. Not everyone gets a trophy, they have to earn their awards through hard work and effort. Shihan has their best interest at heart and makes them improve with proper discipline.

I highly recommend skillz dynamic martial arts. As a mom of a 6 year old boy struggling in many areas from self respect, confidence, communication to handeling his emotions it was very hard to find a program that worked on all these areas of life in one setting. I was introduced to skillz dynamic videos over a year ago!!! we are just now just finishing a two week trial. I regret not going a year ago. The facility is clean, welcoming, and you feel like a family from day one. The instructure is amazing with the kids and very experienced as well. My absolute favorite part of this program is the parent involvement. Many programs we have found focused more on one or the other, parent or child not both!!! The instructor not only supports your child but you as a parent as well!

My 7 year old has been attending classes at Skillz Dynamic Martial Arts for about a year and a half. In that time, I have seen such an improvement in him. He loves Shihan and doesn’t even realize the important life skills he is learning. I love the classes so much that I recently enrolled my 3 year old as well. How many 3 year olds listen, say yes ma’am, and do things because they have a “Yes I Can” attitude? Mine does and it’s because of these classes. Shihan is wonderful with all ages and abilities of the kids and teaches valuable lessons to the parents as well. I honestly cannot say enough about this program!!!

We love this program! Our son Logan is an only child, so we wanted an after school activity that he can interact with kids his age ( age 6 at the time). SDMA turned out to be the perfect choice. Shihan not only teaches karate, but has developed a program that teaches the kids what it means and takes to be an outstanding person. Logan is now 10 and is such a considerate young man. His teachers and principal at school always comment what a great kid he is, and what a leader he is also. I owe all that to SDMA. Shihan is constantly improving the program. If something works good, he'll work hard to make great. THANKS SHIHAN FOR ALL YOU DO!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this studio the instructor is not only helpful with my child he also is chalk full of knowledge that helps me out in tough times when im at my witts end and don't know what to do about my childs behavior. I recommend this place to everyone i am so pleased to see how far my Gavin has came since starting here. THANK YOU Shihan

Stephanie Wright

Love this program! This is NOT your typical karate program, but so much more! The kids learn life skills such as self esteem, respect, and discipline (for example, a challenge this month is for ninjas to make their bed every day). My daughter started this program shortly after turning three years old, and I have seen tremendous increases in her self-confidence, attention span, respect for teachers at school, manners, and overall behavior (in addition to physical development). Not a day goes by that her teachers don’t compliment her on her behavior, and I believe a large part of that is owed to this program. The instructor is incredibly enthusiastic and dedicated to student success. It’s not very often that you get to see someone who has truly found his “calling” in life, but I believe Shihan is one of those people.

Grant Faulkner

Absolutely the best thing we've ever done for our son and for our family. In only a couple months we saw huge positive changes in our son's self-esteem, his confidence, his fitness, and his overall attitude. He’s always excited to come to class, and his growing pride and sense of accomplishment is a joy to see. More than just a karate school, through SDMA our son (and our family) is learning valuable life skills. Thanks Shihan Strecker!

My son Joseph loves Karate with Shihan! We tried another karate schools that was closer in location, but he kept asking for Shihan. In comparison, I was most impressed with the curriculum and organization at Skillz Dynamic Martial Arts, and I'm so glad we made the decision to return. The kids are all known by name and addressed individually throughout each class. Joseph loves it, and I have seen growth in him both as a karate student and as a young boy who displays confidence and shows courtesy and respect!

One of the most rewarding decisions we've made in our daughter's development has been her enrollment at Denny Strecker's Karate. She has developed so many skills in just one year. The instructors are wonderful and the skills they teach reach well beyond martial arts, including reinforcing skills to be a good student, good friend, and good person.

Nearly five years at the dojo now. My son, 12 year old who is autistic has really progressed under Shihan Strecker. He is doing things I would not have thought he could do. He's still very shy but his confidence has grown so much. I highly recommend this kid friendly, family oriented dojo.

Absolutely love what I'm seeing both our daughters achieve in such a short time, and really like how the courses focus on life skills as well as physical skills

We're only 6 weeks in and we could not be happier w/ the progress. Our near 4 year old is not the best listener, but we are already seeing changes. Still a work in progress to be sure, but we're on our way!

Denny Strecker's teaches kids not only karate, but how to become leaders. My son has been going there for over a year and the change in his self confidence and attitude has been life changing!

Caring, detailed, and family oriented are 3 terms that come to mind when thinking about this facility. You definitely don't want to pass up this school if you want to learn self defense, confidence, respect, or just get a great workout.

We signed up my son last year when he was 5 to help him build confidence. Since then his more confident in everything and made improvements in all areas. Now, his twin sister has joined along with him after seeing how fun the class were. I love the fact that the classes focus on life skills but making it a blast for the kids!

Child Transformation with Prestige Martial Arts

Are you ready for a transformation? I had a coaching call with Mr. Horton today, and we got really deep into what it is that we do, and we came up with this great process. Unfortunately, we have had the process in place in the karate school for years. We have just never presented it this way. So I apologize to you parents that are current members, but we are going to start fixing that today. So what we are talking about, what we do here at Prestige Martial Arts is, we transform children.

In 36 months, we are going to improve their Confidence.
We are going to improve their Self-Esteem.
We are going to improve their Discipline.
We are going to improve their Communication.
We are going to improve their Respect
and we are going to improve their Honesty.

We have a written curriculum and life skills program that is proven effective and has helped thousands of kids over the years.

What we’re looking for and asking parents is,  “In 36 months, do you want your child to have those life skills?”

If the answer is yes, then we can absolutely positively improve all of those things practically, guaranteed. And actually, you know what, I will guarantee it. We will figure out how a little bit later. So what we are looking for, who is going to be our founding members, where we really focus on getting real results that make a Lifestyle change for your child.

For example, in the last 10 years, I have not had a single parent call, or ask me about the program saying,
“I want my child to have an awesome sidekick.”

Mr. Horton always says, “There is no correlation between an awesome sidekick and an awesome life.”
And that is why we focus on what we call lifestyle training. What we really want to come to the forefront and to be known specifically for is improving kids’ lifestyle.

That is why we are looking for founding members. Parents who want to help their child improve their Lifestyle. We are going to be measuring results and collecting data, getting all kinds of information along the way, proving steps of improvement month after month after month.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, then what you can do is contact the karate school and we will discuss your situation and create a plan for your child.

This Isn’t going to cost extra. This is going to be our regular program that we have been teaching for years. It is just going to have a better focus on what are your lifestyle goals for your child. The goal is going to be different for each child. Maybe your child needs to work more on discipline. Maybe they need to work more on confidence and self-esteem. So what we are going to do is put specific things in place to get those results over the next 36 months.

Now that does bring up the point. Who is this program not for?

Well, it’s not for the parent that is just looking for a general activity or someone who is thinking that I want to let my kid try it and see if they like it.

It’s also not for the parent that is not going to commit and help their child in this process. Time and time again, I have found that parents that are “hands-off” and sit back and let their child experience the process, that those kids are never successful. They are going to need your help. They are going to need my help. As a team, we are going to make sure that your child is successful.

So if you definitely are able to commit to keeping your child on track, especially when things get tough, then this program will work great for your child.

One key element to success is, once you run into any obstacle, interfering with this transformation, you have to tell me right away. Then we can take action to eliminate the issue. There are several reasons for this: number one, we want to be able to benchmark when it happens. Number two, we want to be able to see what is happening because we talk about killing the monsters when they are small. So if your child has a negative experience in the karate class, we want to be able to cut it out right away and make sure it is just the exception to the rule. This way,  your child always sees the program and the classes as nothing but exciting, fun, and great learning.

So again, if you’re interested in the transformation for your child. If you want them to improve their confidence, their self-esteem, their discipline, their communication, their respect, and their honesty, contact us at 248-687-8641 to discuss your situation and create a plan for your child.
