Couldn’t be happier with this facility. My kids love it and are learning important life and self defense skills. Master Taylor is excellent with my boys, even though one is a bit spacey at times :) So lucky to have found it! Plus we love our homeschool class we can attend in the mornings. Fits our schedule great.

My son had tried other places and he didn't like any until he took a class with Master Taylor. My husband and I like how he has so much patience with the kids and the class sizes aren't overwhelming like in other places. He always shows the children new things daily and also gives them advice if they ever get into a bad situation. Thanks Master Taylor!

My son just started a couple of weeks ago and it’s truly something he enjoys! He tells all of his friends how much he likes going to his classes! Taylor is really good and what he does, you can tell this is his passion.

My son & I love this place, Master Taylor is really great with the kiddos, took us awhile to find the right place and teacher! I had went through two different karate places before I found Master Taylor's place and I'm NOT disappointed so happy that my son enjoys his class and The Master!

Master Kelley is a superior instructor! His teaching style is highly effective and efficient with the kids. I definitely recommend Master Kelley at Functional Taekwondo if you or your kiddo is interested in martial arts training.
I shopped around before settling on a place to put my son. I travel 40 minutes, three times a week, to bring my child to Master Kelley’s classes. There are many places much closer. I did the free trials at 3 others before I selected Master Kelley’s Functional Taekwondo place.
My son has learned so much within the last year of joining his Functional Taekwondo classes. Not only can he fight offensively and defensively, but he has grown more respectful and has become more focused than ever.
My family and I have enjoyed watching this growth and maturity in my 10year old.
We are excitedly awaiting for tournament season to come around. My child has mastered the skills to compete on a competitive level!
If you’re thinking about it; just give it a try! I bet you will love it!

Do Your Kids Like Fortnite? Here’s Why They Will LOVE Martial Arts Classes!

Do Your Kids Like Fortnite? Here’s Why They Will Like This OTHER Activity 🎮
 
At our academy, we get lots of kids who are into this game, and as I was looking into our database, I noticed that 100% of these kids end up joining us during the 2 week trial! 🤯
 
So I couldn’t help but wonder…is there a correlation between kids who enjoy Fortnite and like martial arts classes?🤔
 
As many of the kids know, they also are aware that I do in fact play the game too 😂 lol so I know the ins and outs of what it entails.
 
So in this post I’m going to break down the top 3 reasons why I believe kids who enjoy Fortnite enjoy martial arts classes!
 
#1 Progression 📈
Similar to any game really, martial arts provides a progression or level up system. Kids have to know certain moves and material in order to get to the next rank, improve their “experience points”, and eventually get proficient at a technique. Seeing a tangible change in their body and how they move is an addictive feeling ( a healthy one) and can translate to other areas of life too!
 
#2 Creativity💡
At Functional Taekwondo, we always encourage kids to think outside the box. We aren’t a very “traditional” martial arts school, where is 1 solution to a problem. We always adress different variables of what could go right or wrong in both a competitive sense and self defense (hence, the reason we call our school “Functional” Taekwondo).
 
#3 Team Work 💪
We do a variety of team based exercises and drills that require kids to learn to work together to achieve a goal. In Fortnite, relying on your team to heal you when you get knocked down is crucial for winning the game. If you leave a teammate behind, there’s a good chance you’ll end up being outnumbered and losing. Kids are encouraged to support their fellow classmates so everyone can succeed together.
 
So if your kids really like Fortnite, you may want to give martial arts a try! We do a risk-free two week trial for anyone who wants to get a feel of our academy
