The BEST martial arts studio in town! Master Kim truly is a master at what he teaches and his instructors are just as special too. They are all so gifted with their teachings and their patience with all of the students is unwavering. My very active son trained for years here and became so much more calmer, focused and confident because of it. Martial Arts USA is such a special place and I will be forever grateful to Master Kim for being such an important part of my son growing into the special man he is today. Thank you so much Martial Arts USA! You are truly amazing!

I have been attending Martial Arts USA for four years now, and am very pleased with my positive experience. The staff is friendly and very helpful, and there is this sense of camaraderie amongst the students; everybody wants to see everyone else succeed. Further, I have to admit, I'm amazed at the changes I've noticed in my own life since taking up this endeavor that are definitely for the better. These changes have far out surpassed any expectations I had when starting this venture four year back. I recommend Martial Arts USA to any and all!

My son has been going to Martial Arts USA for about four years now. He started as a white belt and is now a black belt. He has learned to be more focused and disciplined in all aspects of his life. Master Kim and instructor Nguyen are kind and caring with kids. I recommend them to everyone, including adults!

My Son started training with Master Kim & Master Nguyen at Martial Arts USA at the age at 4.. it's been 2 years and he's come a long way from barely understanding multiple step commands to 2 belts shy of his Black belt this coming fall. This is not just any Taekwondo or Martial Arts Academy. Here, self disciplined is learn & practice both physically and mentally. The school is open 6 days a week with very flexible class scheduling for those parents who are advocates of raising well rounded children who have full calendars. Professional, Safe, and definitely a school with integrity!!! Kelly Doan, Mother.

Prior to entering the program with Martial Arts USA, our son was struggling in school. He had a hard time focusing in class so he was not getting his work done and was distracting other children. Being the rambunctious boy he is, it was hard for him to sit still and be quiet during class, and so his classwork suffered. The teacher, my husband and I were concerned for him and what would happen if things continued. So… something had to change. We placed our son in the Martial Arts USA program 5 months ago (at month 4 we placed him in the leadership program) and we have seen a tremendous turn around in both his behavior and his classwork. Our son is able to sit in class and do his work quietly, he is not distracting other children anymore and his report card showed all high marks including the note from the teacher stating he was doing excellent! This is not the same information we received on his previous report card. Our son loves going to Martial Arts USA. He looks forward to his lessons and applies what he has learned at home and at school. We couldn’t be prouder of him nor more pleased with the program at Martial Arts USA. I would recommend this program to any parent who has a child struggling like our son. I can’t say enough good things about Master Kim and his program. Thank you, Master Kim, for helping our son reach his full potential. He is becoming the respectful and intelligent young man we knew he could be.
