    Don't Take Our Word! Here's What the Parents of our Students Say to Us all the time:

    Side Kicks is the place to bring your child when you want them to benefit from all karate has to offer. My children have grown so much in 9 months from the life skills and physical skills they’ve learned with Sensei Brian and Senpai Joyce. The adult kickboxing class is a great workout, too. I’m glad we have the family membership.

    Side Kicks Karate is such a family focused business! It's a program that teaches so much more than the physical kicking and fighting. Their focus is making sure the children can be the best they can be by teaching them self confidence and to believe in themselves! And the list just goes on! Teaches the whole family not just the children. It's a family oriented place and you become part of a wide spread side kicks family!
