LISTEN TO WHAT OUR HAPPY PARENTS ARE SAYING
My son still learns Tex Kwon Do at VMAC. Happy to report that they're now offering classes by Zoom to keep everyone safe from COVID-19. Terrific people that really care about the students. In addition to self defense, VMAC emphasizes valuable character building lessons and anti-bullying techniques. Funny story: my kid's elementary teachers have been impressed by how polite my son is, "He's very respectful. He says, 'Yes, Ma'am.'" That is a valuable life skill he picked up at VMAC. 🙂
My name is Sajitha. I wanted to let you know that Vision Martial Arts has given a lot of confidence for my daughter. She was a very shy kid and it has helped her train properly and she is more disciplined and more outgoing and more confident about herself, and I think it’s all because of the training she received here at Vision Martial Arts.
In the two years that our son has participated at VMAC with Diane Reeve and her excellent teachers, the impact has been far greater than the physical. The enjoyment he has got from the history of the development of Tae Kwon Do is immense. The discipline that he has developed as he heads towards the teenage years has been invaluable in managing his own self, in the sport and in the challenges that life brings. The responsibility that he has learned to take for his equipment and himself in order to do the best he can have increased measurably over this time. The physical benefits are not only strength, but also deliberation and control over himself, which is reiterated within the dojo as having the strength to walk away from a situation. Being called upon to articulate how he feels about his own achievements with belt levels by writing an essay has been another facet of his learning, a life skill in a real sense.
