"You are great with children. Thank you for being so flexible with the children, i.e., comfort levels." -S.S.

"My child's attitude & excitement for class was immediate! We look forward to learning more mindfulness & martial arts with you. Story time, animals, names for moves, boundaries... Communication was great and clear. Thank you for your time & energy!" -A.L.

"I love the discipline before starting class (showing respect to the mat). I love it when the kids gain their voice. I love the fun element, e.g., being animals." -M.B.

"My two daughters (ages 7 and 8) love this program. They participated this past year and they have learned so much in terms of how to be mindful in assessing a situation as well as super useful techniques in self-defense. Coach Gabe and his crew are patient, caring, and fun to learn from. I highly recommend this program to parents!" -Ronner Cook
