Master Chris taught my very first Taekwondo class nine years ago and it has been a part of my life ever since. He knows how to make hard work fun and how to tune in to each individual student to know what they need, whether it is encouragement, discipline, or a greater challenge. He is a great master for children and adults alike!

I was hesitant about signing my son up for martial arts due to his age but am so glad I did. He loves it and I have noticed a compete change in his attitude and confidence. Master Chris it's great with the students, the environment is very positive, and the school has a family like atmosphere.

A few months ago I was grabbing lunch next door to Absolute Taekwondo and saw a sign. Literally. I had recently been talking about learning Krav Maga , but was having trouble finding a reputable school in the area. I gave it a shot, and I'm so glad I did. The classes are physically tough, but train you to be exhausted as you would be in any fight. The self defense skills are invaluable, and Master Chris does a great job at making sure we're prepared to get home safe if we ever need to apply these skills.

My son has been training TKD for almost a year, and I have been training Krav Maga since December. I cant say enough about Master Chris. He has the patience to handle a room full of crazy 5-6 year olds. He keeps them focused, working hard, and always coming away with a smile on their faces. I have seen so much improvement in my son's development both mentally and physically.
At the same time he has the ability to completely switch to the intense, fast paced training that Krav Maga requires. Combining, conditioning, striking, and self defense allows for a curriculum that truly prepares you for anything.

My daughter only wanted to do Tae Kwon Do, she had no interest in anything else. My BIL told me that one of his favorite teachers opened a school next to me. She started taking classes and she loves it. Master Chris has helped her confidence and taken her from a shy girl to an outgoing one . She is now a purple belt. I think Master Chris is excellent and motivating . I recommend this school to any age.

My son started at Absolute TKD when he was 5 years old - he's now a blue belt! Master Chris is a great instructor, who is really good and patient with the kids! I can see my son feel so proud of himself when he moves to a new belt and I know it is beneficial for him to improve control and focus.
My husband also takes the Krav Maga class and really enjoys it. It's a great workout!

Top 5 Reasons Kids Should Practice Martial Arts:

1. It helps them make new friends.

The bond between martial artists is stronger than most other sports. Martial arts are physical, and they require physical confrontation. When confronted with someone of similar size, strength, and skill, students develop a sense of respect for one another. They realize they are capable, and so are others. Out of healthy respect for themselves and others, long-lasting and rewarding relationships develop.

2. They will learn better human relation skills.

During martial arts training, students need to learn the concept of physical space, how physical contact is both an invasion and invasive. The sport literally and figuratively breaks down barriers. Students will confront people of all types and abilities during martial arts training. This kind of exposure helps to prepare them for a dynamic and diverse social environment.

3. They learn new coping skills.

Your kids deal with a world unlike anything we’ve seen before. The pressures of a social network, expectations, and a world full of need and change are overwhelming for children with no experience to handle it.

Martial arts are an outlet. Their physicality trains physical fitness, which balances the body physiologically and emotionally. But it also emboldens kids with a warrior’s mentality of gratitude, humility, respect, and self-confidence.

The world is full of confrontation. We’ll teach your kids how to thrive with it.

4. They develop better focus and concentration.

Practicing martial arts requires patience and persistence. Not everyone is at the same level of skill, but kids need to know that they can change and grow. A body is the one thing that everyone has that they can always improve. When you show kids that they can get better when they focus on improving their strengths and weaknesses, you provide them with hope that their dreams are possible.

The rewards carry over into every aspect of their lives, like better studying and better behavior at school.

5. They develop better respect for authorities.

In martial arts, as in life, there is always a teacher and a student, and nothing can replace the value of mentorship. Martial arts, more so than other activities, emphasize discipline and respect for authority.

Kids need to learn that they’ll go far on their own, but they’ll go the furthest with the help of others. A teacher’s wisdom is the most valuable kind of guidance. A martial arts teacher sets a standard that helps kids relate better to other figures of authority in their lives, like teachers and parents.
