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.

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!

Do your kid’s find some difficulty in maintaining performance in school? It is not just about class responsiveness; we are talking about overall competency including social and physical activities. Studies reveal that when kids fail to meet the standards and tough demands at school; it makes them feel demotivated; as a result, their grades suffer.

It is observed that the confidence level of students drop-down when they find themselves lagging their peers. Well, in such situations it is important to find some potential solution to deal with their growth and performance. Experts suggest signing your kid to martial art classes. It is proven as one of the most effective methods to make your child do their best in school.

Here are a few details on how kids martial arts classes can help to improve their grades:

  1. Learn the value of hard work:

Once you enroll your kids to martial art training, slowly they will start understanding the importance of hard work. Martial art helps them learn that progress is impossible without giving 100%. With this practice, they learn that there is no shortcut to success in life. In order to achieve results, it is important to study hard and follow good grades.

  1. They become highly disciplined:

Martial art can help your kids to become bully-proof and disciplined, and it is the way to ensure success in life. Kids who attend martial art classes on a regular basis are more likely to perform better in schools as well. With this training, kids learn to stay consistent with their peers and teachers, and as a result, they grow up like more happy and healthy adults.

  1. Gain mental toughness:

Several studies have proven that martial art can help kids to become stronger against their opponents. They learn the deal with the failures and gain mental toughness to struggle more towards success. They start taking responsibility for their actions and make efforts to step out of their limited comfort zone.

  1. Boost focus and concentration:

There are many trusted practices in the martial art that can help kids to deal with the difficulties in learning new things. These practices help them develop higher concentration levels and better focus to achieve great results in schools. Experts believe that martial art can help kids to pay more attention to their instructors so that they can develop better sense from all learning activities.

  1. Grow with confidence:

Success at school level and all other phases of life is truly dependent on the confidence level of individuals. Martial art can help your kids to learn the value of confidence, and it improves their mental abilities by a great extent. Confidence further makes them more socialized, and they find it easier to fit in. As a result, they start performing better at all stages of life.

In short, it is definitely good to enroll your kid to the Troy Martial Arts so that they can enjoy an overall improvement in life.
