My 6 year old daughter has been taking martial arts with Hard Target for 9 months now, and is still excited about coming to class each and every time. Hard Target teaches martial arts skills, discipline, respect for self and others and much much more in a safe and fun way. The instructors have a natural ability to communicate with and teach children, and the studio is welcoming and CLEAN! I have watched my daughter's confidence, physical skills and self image blossom. This is by far the best activity we have been involved with, and cannot imagine a better environment for learning such important lessons and skills that will stay with her forever. Hard Target has been such a positive influence in my daughter's life, not just physically - but mentally and emotionally as well.
I am a professional in Charlotte (I teach and coach people to do software development in teams). And a father. What Kevin Wilbourne has done with Charlotte Hapkido is very impressive. I have been coming for several years now. He treats each person according to their needs and abilities, always asking them to stretch a bit, but not too much. He is good with both kids and adults. I am not the expert on martial arts and Hapkido, but I have seen and heard about many other instructors. To me, he is the best I can imagine. He clearly understands and has an intuitive feel for how the human body works. And this enables him to teach better. And also a great person and a fun person to work with. I highly recommend these guys. Joe Little
I highly recommend Leadership Martial Arts. It is a great place for all ages and all levels. Ever since my daughter started Little Ninjas in the Summer 2013, I was so impressed with the academy that I started training in February 2015. Because of my health, I have some physical restrictions. It has been easy to adapt, get a good work out and not feel that I am disrupting or slowing the class down in any way. Participating at the academy has been beneficial, both mentally and physically. As an added bonus, it is awesome Mommy & Daughter time together. Because of our positive experience, I definitely recommend LMA.
