Me Reyes is an awesome instructor! He engages the kids but knows when to be strict. Genuinely cares about all his students on a friendly and personal level!
Mr. Reyes and his entire staff are extremely knowledgeable and patient. They understand that they are not only teaching karate technique but also focus on building character and a positive lifestyle
Fantastic experience! My daughter started just over a year ago and loves it. Mr. Reyes is a very experienced and talented teacher. Each class is different with a variety of skills practiced and refined. The students progress steadily through the belts and gain confidence and a lot of encouragement from the great staff. We will be there for many years to come. We couldn’t have found a better place for karate and self defense instruction.
Mr. Reyes is beyond a wonderful teacher of martial arts. Not only do I recommend this place as a perfect institution of higher learning for martial arts, Mr. Reyes, Mr. Thomas and Ms. Ashley teach the importance of being disciplined and kind every class. I trust this group of individuals with my most precious earthly gift… my son! Thank you to the entire staff of Black Belt Martial Arts..
My 6, 7 and 8 year olds have been students here for 2+ years now. We can’t say enough good things about Mr. Reyes and his school. He not only meets each of our kids where they’re at in terms of ability/mindset/maturity/desire, he genuinely cares about them as people. He’s really good at getting to their hearts and encouraging not only their development as a karate student, but also in refining their character in a way that mirrors what we as parents desire for them. We’re grateful this amazing school was recommended to us and we look forward to many more years with them.
An amazing group of staff & a wonderful instructor who really cares for your child’s learning! We’ve had our daughter in the class since 3 yrs. old and at first we thought perhaps it was too soon, but of how great they were at informing us on her progress & their teaching was just great all around (our daughter is now 7 and absolutely LOVES it!). Now we have all 4 of our kids in the classes and we are so glad we have found the perfect place for our kids to learn confidence & discipline.
I first enrolled my son when he was 4. He was having problems with hitting at home, as well as having problems focusing and following direction at home. I thought karate would teach discipline and focus. I was not disappointed! I saw immediate change in his attitude. Mr. Reyes and Mr. Thomas are amazing with the kids, all the instructors are actually. They know how to be firm with the children while also adding a little silliness. They really connect with each child and help them to build courage and character!
