Excellent instruction from all the coaches. They are knowledgeable and patient, and always willing to walk you through the moves. I've been going to the kickboxing class for about 3 years and I've definitely gained muscles! The best part is that it's still just as fun and challenging as it was when I first started. Never gets old.

Absolute has made a huge impact on my family. Before joining, I was intimidated by kickboxing classes but after one class I realized my fear had no merit - the folks at Absolute are like family now. I am stronger, healthier, more confident and happier than I was before, and I have made some amazing friends. Even on those days I don't want to get off the couch, once I get to the studio my whole attitude is changed and I am pumped. Absolute is always adding new classes, new sessions, and holding events & contests for us to stay engaged. It's been over 4 years for me and it never gets old!

My two sons joined me over a year ago - one in Jiu Jitzu and one in kids class - and both have shown tremendous growth. Ms Ana and the kids class have brought out the best in my 1st grader, teaching him respect, determination and pride in accomplishments. We love Absolute!

Such a fantastic place! The people are so welcoming here, that they take the intimidation out of learning something new, especially as an adult learning - and they really care about teaching you and pushing you to be your best. Absolutely love coming here for classes, seeing everyone weekly, and learning Muay Thai!

Before you actually enroll your child, you need to know a few things: Age You can tell if a child is ready for martial arts if they have developed a sense of left and right. You also need to check if they show empathy for others, has learned age appropriate manners, can practice the tasks each day along with their ability to understand and take criticism. Choosing a Dojo Some dojos are great for older children but might not be so good for younger ones. Before enrolling your child in a dojo you know is good, try to find out if how the dojo master or sensei deals with the younger students.

Is he patient? Does he pay attention to each individual child and whether or not his teaching style is suitable for small children? Important questions to ask. Choosing a Style There are numerous styles of martial arts. For example, the Korean Hapkido teaches joint lock and is considered the best for women as the techniques use less strength and provides larger impact. Choosing the style for your child depends on their personality. As there’s a certain philosophy behind each form, it may be able to teach them lifelong lessons. Therefore, it is important to look at the form of martial art through your child’s needs and nature.
