Kim's College of Martial Arts Reviews
My daughter has been taking classes for six months and she absolutely loves it! We love all the staff, they teach the kids respect and honor, which is really rare with the youth today. I couldn't be more impressed with this family owned business, truly honorable people and business!
Our family has attended here for six years and we are so impressed by the manners and character that has developed through the teaching of this facility. The focus on overall success, in school, at home and in sports is something here in Akron, that is unmatched! I would recommend KCMA to any family.
This school of martial arts is excellent. They work with the students in teaching them respect and discipline. My grandson has learned a lot since he has joined. I have the utmost respect for all the teachers and the Grandmaster.
Our son had severe separation anxiety. After his first month it was finally, "ok" for me to watch him behind the glass and not have to sit on the mats near him. We have not had a problem since with his anxiety and he actually became so confident that you would never know! The staff is amazing, patient and it's such a great structured school. Highly recommend!
My husband and daughter have been attending for about 2 years and love it! Something they can do together. The instructors, both male and female are professional and wonderful!
A very family oriented place for your children to learn self-respect and handle their emotions.
Outstanding staff! Kind, caring, encouraging and committed are just a few words that come to mind. My son is enrolled in the program and he loves it. We had a birthday party for him here as well and we couldn't have been more impressed. Thank you all and keep up the great work!
This has to be the most amazing people I have ever met! My daughter has just recently signed up and loves it!! She had a birthday party there and I cannot even express how AMAZING the staff were! I highly recommend this organization for a birthday party! You will not be disappointed.
Kim's is hands down the #1 Taekwondo school in the nation!
