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!

The Power Of Gratitude

How often are we thankful for the things we have?

Just the other day I had a discussion with one of my students during a private lesson, and we had an interesting conversation about gratitude.

I wanted to share some of our realizations with you all, and how it can positively affect your life.

#1 Being thankful improves your mood

The saying is true. When you count your blessings instead of setbacks, it changes your perspective on how you look at the world. Whenever you are helping someone out, or appreciating what you have, it’s very difficult to be upset.

#2 Appreciate the small things

Maybe it’s the fact you can drive yourself to work. Maybe it’s the coffee you have in the morning. Once you learn to appreciate small aspects of life, it makes your day seem brighter.

#3 It could always be worse!

Sometimes, we are faced with situations that might seem like it’s the end of the world. When in reality, its how YOU look at the situation that determines how you feel. I can tell you this, when you feel like you have it bad, it’s not as bad as someone else. When you look at it that way, it shifts your perspective on how things are going.

One of the things I invite you to do is get in the habit of writing 3 things everyday that you are grateful for. (I use an app called Bliss, it’s free and I’m not being paid to promote it).

 

You’ll be amazed what it does to your mood!

Have an awesome week!
