“…Honestly, they are amazing with the little ones!”
“…My son has been there for 3 years now and loves it…With their nurturing, accepting and fun ways they have built his confidence beyond measure. They are a local, family run business and make their dojo feel like a family. I am a teacher and have crazy high expectations – MMA is the only place! Their Little Dragons program for 4 year olds is fabulous. Sensei Teri and Renshi Mike are great with the kids and keep the parents watching cracking up!”
“…I highly recommended Millennium Martial Arts for any child or adult who is interested in karate. My son has been a student since kindergarten, he is now in 5th grade and not only is he learning fine martial arts but he has also learned how to focus better, have discipline and respect for others. The instructors have gone far and beyond to teach and help my son, they have all dedicated themselves to my child’s success not only in martial arts but in everyday life. They also have some family oriented extra activities like a movie night and the Dojo Olympics picnic which is great fun for the kids and families.”
“…This is THE place for your child to begin karate. The instructors here have made MMA not a business but a welcoming family for each child and their families. While challenging “typically developing” students they also have experience in dealing with and compassion for children with special needs (my son has over responsive sensory issues) and allowing them reasonable accommodations while holding them accountable for no less than what they are capable of, which will surprise you! In addition, the children (and parents!) learn self control, respect, self worth and a host of other skills that go above and beyond anything I have seen in any organized sport my kids have been involved in. I have said before that those who teach karate at MMA are not only teachers of karate but teachers of life and I mean that from the bottom of my heart!”
“…I just wanted you to know that she is so happy when she comes home from karate. She said she loves going there and it is amazing!”
Parents’ thoughts on why their children never latched on to other sports or activities until they found Karate at Millennium Martial Arts:
“…I believe that the differentiated and individualized instructional approach at MMA fosters a supportive environment that is just not possible with other organized team sports. The one on one instruction teaches respect, patience, and genuine caring between the instructor and student which carries over to teamwork activities within and ultimately outside of the Dojo. Children learn best through the integration of disciplines. The integrated method of teaching respect, listening skills, social/emotional skills and conflict resolution through physical activity and the beautiful art of karate is beneficial for many children, especially those on the spectrum who may not ordinarily succeed in other sports. The day my son said, “Mom, I really like the instructors at karate – they make me feel safe.” was one I will never forget and a turning point in his life.”
“…Well, I asked my daughter why she is so happy when she comes home from karate and she told me a few things. First she said she feels good because her body and mind exercised and second that as soon as she walks in the dojo feels “familiar” to her!”
“…Lessons taught at the dojo go far beyond karate”
