We transferred my son from another Karate place in town after a few years and a Brown Belt later as it wasn't the same when he started. He was still into Karate but we wanted a little more of a personal touch to it now rather than an assembly line for kids especially since he was climbing the belt ranks. With Mr. Smith's, he has that passion and fire back for Karate and loving every second. My daughter (4yrs old) is at Mr. Smith's now too and looks forward to going. I can't say enough nice things about Mr. Smith as well as his staff on how welcoming they are. The kids love it and so do we!
