My 4 kids & I all love practicing martial arts at iXL. I've visited other dojos & the instructors make a tremendous difference. We drive past at least 10 martial arts dojos on our 30 minute drive. I prefer for my kids to be exposed to positivity, fun, high-level education, & discipline. My oldest daughter (11yo) is the shy, quiet type. Recently, because of an increased confidence gained from iXL, she stood up to a neighborhood bully who assaulted her little (9yo) sister , & the bully quickly backed down, & hasn't bothered my kids since. She has also made many friends during her training. My 5yo boy, who had a severe lack of focus, has learned to be respectful and attentive thanks to Master Chan & Mr Page. The middle two girls, who are naturally compliant & personable have enjoyed learning martial arts, the physical challenges, & have made great friends too. As for me, I cherish the opportunity to exercise with my kids, develop personally, and to interact with them as they develop life-long skills and values that will benefit all of us. You & your kid(s) should give it a try!
