Cannot recommend Champions karate enough! My son, 7, has been with them for 3 years and has continued to flourish under the instruction of the very motivated Senseis. It became a family activity when they offered adult kickboxing classes and I was able to join in too! Amazing company and wonderful dedicated staff who inspire both kids and adults alike.
