“I started taking my nephew to the Little Dragons classes here and have been EXTREMELY pleased with the staff, facility and curriculum. For the Little Dragons (my nephew is 5) the class is a broad selection of cooperative games, physical fitness, and activities to encourage the kids to share, listen, pay attention as well as learning basic karate skills. They are very affordable and really seem to be more focused on providing an amazing experience for the kids rather than how much they can charge you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!”
“Thank you for running a professional, friendly school and for helping create the positive, disciplined environment that helps kids and adults aline become better people inside and out. We need more kids in the public schools with the kind of values taught through Kenpo Karate.”

“Mr. Hagood Thank you for all of your leadership, guidance, and everything else you have done for me. You have been a major part in shaping my life into what it is, I would not be where I am today if it were not for you.”
“Dear Mr. Hagood
In response to your questionnaire regarding the Mr. Dye seminar I would have this to say.
I spend almost every day at your studio with my son and enjoy every moment. The seminar with Mr. Dye adds another exciting element to your program. He is indeed a very inspiring individual. It is always fun to see the energy level around the studio when he comes to visit.
I believe the only thing I could see, as more inspiring would be a little more personal attention during the workout. perhaps making a point to spend a few seconds with each youth as they are working out. The effect of his words on an individual basis, be it every so brief, can provide weeks of months of inspiration to a motivated student.
Mr. Hagood, your program is already outstanding. You and your instructors are without a question the most influential, inspiring, and motivating martial artists in the valley. Adding seminars from Mr. Dye only enhance what is already one of the most important parts of my son’s life!!!!”
