My son started in Little Dragons at six years old, and has been in the kids karate program for almost one year. The improvement I’ve seen in him is tremendous - he has more confidence in taking on tough tasks and he’s able to more effectively work through failure and learn from his mistakes. He has become more positive through the life skills taught by Denny Strecker and has found opportunities to employ new skills at school as well as at home. He is also involved in the Leadership program, learning essential skills and techniques to be a leader at such a young age. His confidence with public speaking as well as his overall demeanor when talking to people - stand tall, eye contact, clear voice are improving with every session. Denny is wonderful with the kids, enforcing standards and expectations in a positive and productive manner to enable each student to grow to be successful in their future. His dedication shows in every class, email, and in all communication to the parents and kids. I highly recommend Prestige Martial Arts for any kid and their parents.
