“My child loves coming to her class at N.S.K.A. I enjoy watching her stretching, balancing, focusing and laughing! At home she says “I will do my very best Mom”. The very competent and entertaining instructors reinforce all the lessons I teach at home: Dressing yourself, pick up your toys, listen to your parents, eat right etc! Michelle seems to do what she needs to because she hears it from her cool karate teachers.”
"You know how kids are…when they’re little you “try” everything – ballet, piano, soccer, tennis, swimming, art, gymnastics, karate. After a while you get a sense of where your child belongs. I discovered this shortly after my daughter (age 4 at the time) took off her tutu in ballet class and just walked out the door!"
"When she was six, we decided to “try” karate. Now it’s almost 3 years later and our daughter hasn’t said one negative thing about karate! Not one! Mr. Spoon and Mr. Hart are masterful at engaging the kids and balancing fun with learning. It is a true mind/body experience."
"My daughter has become more respectful and focused. There is no doubt in my mind that she will continue with the program and earn her black belt and beyond. I recommend this program 100%. Having a child learn karate with Mr. Spoon and Mr. Hart is a real gift, lessons they can treasure throughout their lives."
Mrs. Trish Castraberti
“Michael has made many positive changes since beginning karate classes. We’ve noticed an improvement in his ability to focus, obeying mom and dad and his love for karate. He enjoys practicing karate at home and teaches his younger brother his latest moves.”
We are very happy with the instructors as they are truly wonderful with the children and show patience, discipline and understanding.
Our goal at NSKA is to make our students technically proficient, mentally focused and physically stronger while having a positive influence in their lives.
