The classes at MG Kenpo are not merely a karate lesson, but an enlightening section towards your mind and body. Since MG Kenpo is a family size dojo, Master Gomez can focus on students one on one through regular class section. Master Gomez demonstrated an admirable degree of passion, knowledge and skills towards Kenpo. His moves are polished & professional and the students learned a lot from him. His teaching includes a wide variety of Kenpo School Teaching method, such as Old School Kenpo Training, New Conventional Kenpo class, Kenpo Technique Line, Basic Tranditional Karate and technique knowledge. He varied his class to be age appropriate for primary, middle and upper grade students and made good use of student participation. I highly recommend Master Gomez & MG Kenpo Academy to all kids, audit and Kenpoist.

My children have been under the instruction of Reginald Venson for years and I couldn't be happier with our experience. He disciplines all the children but with a certain level of compassion and encouragement. He has helped my boys perfect their karate skills and also makes sure they are successful in school. Its been a pleasure working with him.

American Kenpo Karate

Learning American Kenpo Karate under Rick Jeffcoat has been a complete experience. Rick Jeffcoat is adept at teaching students of many ages, backgrounds, and learning types. I find myself at awe that in one minute he can dissect and simplify techniques that I am struggling with and then the next minute challenge and enrich techniques that I thought I had felt comfortable with. He is adept at both teaching by action and by words. Best of all, I find his "what if" scenarios valuable to bring practicality to the art. The quality of life changes he's been making to the studio has also made it feel like a second home. The place is kept clean and comfortable.

Sensei Ali Jafari is an excellent martial art trainer. He has been my martial art instructor for the past twenty years during which not only I have learned karate techniques and instructions, I have also learned many life lessons from him. His patience, enthusiasm, and willing to teach are among many positive qualities that he demonstrates on a consistent basis. He is exceptionally patient with children and individuals who may not learn as quickly as other student. Sensei Jafai is is extremely knowledgeable in Shotkan Karate, Taekwondo, and using “weapons” in martial art. Sensei Jafari always brings energy and positive attitude to the class. He often finds a balance between paying attention individually to the highest ranked students as well as the lowest rank person. Sensei Jafari is very observant and cares about every individual’s progress. He is well informed about what specific and detail areas a student needs to work on in order to be successful in Karate and other areas of life.

    Erik is one of the best teachers of karate that one can find. Even though I have moved a number of times out of the area, I still come to Victory Karate for my training. For the intense workouts, the discipline and commitment to excellence, It's worth it.

    I am a great fan of Shihan Hojati, whose experience, knowledge and teaching skills are simply superb. I am greatly respectful towards his insights regarding Karate do. His approach towards his class is self defense and fitness oriented and his teaching methods encompass the traditional as well as the modified. All the kids as well as the adults benefit greatly in terms of fitness of body as well as that of the mind from his teaching. I have been training with him for more than a year now and hope to be here longer still as I enjoy every class with him!

    I love this dojo! its clean, fully equipped and matted. Not like some others schools in the area that just train on carpet and use hard flooring. Blisters on the feet from carpet burns are not fun. Duarte Shotokan teaches Real Karate from a traditional lineage and it is a safe place to train, especially for kids. All the instructors and assistants are very kind and caring too. I have been in class for a few weeks already and I love the intense workouts and practical self defense lessons that are taught. I would recommend Duarte Martial arts Academy to anyone looking for a fun, safe and caring dojo.

    Kevin James is one seriously dangerous karate man! He personally trained the management team of StaffPro Securty, the nation's leading sporting event security staffing firm. Everyone in attendance praised his outstanding delivery of content and professional manner in which classes were conducted. You're not going to find a better instructor anywhere.

      Progressive Martial Arts Academy is a awesome school that offers Shorin Ryu karate for kids ages 4 and up, teens, and men and women. Sensei Larry Fouts along with Sensei Ginger Taniguchi and Sensei Jade Taniguchi teach the karate classes and they do a terrific job. They are all highly skilled and well trained and are great with kids.They also teach a program for special needs kids and adults. The Japanese art of Aikido, taught by Sensei Takahashi, is also taught (seperately) and cardio kick boxing is offered as well. Highly recommended!

      About

      Our kid's karate classes are a great way for children to get fit and healthy. Martial arts training offers plenty of cardiovascular exercise and can improve flexibility and overall body conditioning. Qualified kid's karate instructors will give children the tools they need to avoid potentially violent situations or resolve them in a nonviolent way. While learning karate, self defense techniques are also taught, which gives them confidence in knowing that if a violent situation can't be avoided, they'll be able to effectively defend themselves.

      About

      We are the ultimate in personalized martial arts instruction - we fit the martial arts to you, instead of making you fit into what we do.
