Legend Shotokan Karate
About this pro
My daughter started at Legend nearly 5 years ago & is now training to get her black belt. Karate has helped her grow physically and mentally. The dedicated trainers teach not only the art of the sport but the respect that should go with it. At 11 years old my daughter has self esteem and confidence that all girls should have. Many schools give belt promotions based on the number of attended classes but Hanshi solely promotes on merit. Kids are required to work hard to see results. The door is always open to attend extra classes if desired. Its a great family atmosphere and I couldn't recommend the school more!Aug 1, 2011
I trained pretty seriously when I was younger, so I already knew what I wanted in a dojo when my daughter became old enough to start. Of course I wanted a dojo with an excellent safety record; of course I wanted skilled martial artists who were also experienced teachers; of course I wanted a traditional place, with high etiquette and behavioral standards; of course I wanted successful competitors who weren't obsessed with competition. I found all that at "the Legend", but I also found something I didn't know to look for: a community. Hanshi Scarda (the lead instructor) knows everyone who comes in: all the students and all their parents, and all of the students know most of the students. Everyone is working together to get better, and having fun doing it. My daughter is completely comfortable and at home in the dojo, and has been enjoying karate for more than two years. Me too.Jul 16, 2011
