Mr. Tom is fantastic. My son has little focus anywhere except at Karate practice where he magically gets focus!

There is much more to this school than just karate. There is a high emphasis on respect, self discipline, and so much more. Mr. Tom and Miss Alex are like family now. You should stop by for a visit and see what they are all about.

If you care about you family this is the place where you should begin your journey. Not only the self defense you will learn but the family values that are always first in foremost in every lesson. This is place where when you walk in the door you will always feel as if everyone is a part of your extended family .

I don't know how to express what positive things have come from me trying out then joining classes here. All skill levels are welcomed. There is a distinct lack of macho posturing and ego. Instead there is true respect here. I am so excited to see where my journey takes me here! Thank you Mr. Tom, Miss Alex, the black belts, and other students I have encountered this far!

I’ve never met a teacher so patient & positive as Mr. Tom. You can tell he & his sweet wife, Alex, are genuinely loved by kids. They also make parents feel included with their warm yet professional demeanor. The classes & environment make it easy to excel, not just in martial arts, but in self-confidence, respect & other core values. I drive a ways for my kids to attend Self-Defense 4U & it’s well worth it!

Super fun combined birthday party for our 13 year old & 4 year old. Their friends loved it & so did their parents! Mr. Tom & Mrs. Alex are awesome

Mr Tom and his amazing wife have a wealth of experience in dealing with your overactive child! / They are a invaluable asset to the bettering of my child that thinks he know everything. Deep down I know my son is retaining everything like a sponge. And in turn he will apply said knowledge when he grows up. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Now if we could just figure out a way to thwart peer pressure!

I enrolled with my grandson and we both have really enjoyed the family feeling and learning very useful self defense and life skills. Been going for almost 2 years and hope to continue on to a black belt!

Mr. Tom is so wonderful with his students. My daughter leaves each class feeling confident and good about herself and she always has the biggest smile on her face during class. I've not seen my daughter take such passion in anything like she has in her class here. I would recommend this place to everyone!!
