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 son has been taking karate classes from Sensei Jafari for over 4 years. Sensei has helped him with his focus and discipline. His methods are effective as he combines age (and belt) appropriate expectations and fun into all the classes. We enjoy the special classes such as beach training, holding classes in the park, and incorporating weapons classes. Sensei is also very strict on when students test for their next belt level ensuring not only physical ability but mental preparedness. Take one class and you will be convinced that this is the dojo for you!

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.

    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.

    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!
