Classes are so much fun here. It's very structured and traditional, yet really friendly. Jason, Green Belt Teen

Master Batch and Mrs. Batch are very knowledgeable. They're able to explain difficult techniques and concepts in ways that make it simple for everyone to understand. Jamie, Yellow Belt Adult
I really appreciate the individual help I've received from both Master Terry Batch and Cheif Instructor Emily Batch. They each share their ideas in different ways that have helped me in my own training and also in how I can teach others more effectively. Susan,4th Degree Black Belt
I love the fact that the kids & adults train together. I can't think of any other forum where children have such an opportunity to develop friendships with adults. It's a very special environment. They learn so much from one another. Mutual respect is a natural outcome. Bruce, 5th Degree Black Belt
