The American Karate Studio and its instructors have taught many people over the years and have left an overwhelmingly positive impact on those who learned karate with them. See some testimonials from our students below.

 "I have such high respect for all of the American Karate Studio instructors. I will continue to demonstrate the same discipline, modesty, and respect that I have gained by training in this studio.” -  N.D-R.

“The instructors at AKS have been huge figures in my life. I can honestly say that I would not be the person I am today were it not for them. They’ve taught me a lot since I started at 4 years old, and all of it will stick with me.” -B.F.

“The American Karate Studio does a great job at encouraging a strong community of karate enthusiasts who have become my lifelong friends!” - N.S.

"They have created a wonderful atmosphere of study, fun, and growth in which their students thrive. There is really caring for one another and a desire to do well for the studio.” - J.S.

“The wise instruction and strong example of character I’ve received from AKS have helped me to become a better person. I know that my son and I are better people for having trained there.” - J.L.

“I don't have the words to say how much the people at AKS have shaped me into a better person. I hope they truly understand how their impact has a positive chain reaction that affects many people (and will do so for many generations). I am proud to be a part of the legacy they’ve created. I thank them for all they have done for me throughout the past 30 years.” N.T.

“The instructors here have played such an important and defining role in my life. I have learned all the values I’ll ever need to know from my parents and these classes. But they haven’t been just great teachers but have turned into great friends as well, and they’ve always been so supportive of me even when my interests lie elsewhere than Tae Kwon Do.” -B.D.

“As I look back to the first day I entered the American Karate Studio dojang (1987), I was a scared, unconfident adolescent. But as they taught and encouraged me I grew to be a self-respecting and disciplined individual. I credit them for teaching me how to set a goal and accomplish it.” - A.C.

“Being awarded belts as I advanced has been important to me, but the real treasure is the journey to black belt. I have made wonderful friends and achieved deeper respect for others while watching the instructors teach young and old. I took comfort in knowing that I was always doing my best, a value they have taught me. I will always have the memories and friendships created at AKS” -P.S.

“When I first walked through the studio doors, I knew I had found a home away from home, filled with people who would soon become like family for me. For a long time, I always felt like something was missing from my life, and karate has now filled that void. I feel so much more complete because of it” - S.O.

“The karate classes here have been incredibly important in my children’s lives. They have provided consistency along with training, exercise, and fun. They also all feel accepted and comfortable in their classes. I can’t thank AKS enough for all they have done for my kids!” - J.B.

We are proud to have touched the lives of many, but each student who comes into our studio also impacts the lives of instructors and others within our community and for that, we are extremely grateful!
