I have both of my kids (ages 4 & 6) in classes here and we love it. This is the first extracurricular activity that my kids absolutely love and I don’t have to give them extra encouragement to go because they are always excited to go! Manny is great with kids and does an amazing job keeping them engaged and focused. I highly recommend!!!

The owner Manny is super cool and works with the kids very well. He’s extremely flexible with times and payment. I love the culture here. I enrolled all four of my kids for a reasonable price. They are all very excited to learn how to protect themselves from fighting and bullying. I’m so glad I was referred to this organization.
