We started the search for a great martial arts studio for our kids by asking other parents for recommendations and then visiting studios to check out the classes they offered. Our search ended successfully at All-Pro Tae Kwon Do Studio in Los Gatos. Master Fanelli is a 5th Degree Black Belt with 25+ years of teaching experience, and it shows. My husband & I are continually impressed by Fanelli's professionalism, knowledge, and enthusiasm -- he is AMAZING with the kids!! He has just the...view more right teaching style to keep them motivated and focused on the martial arts skills that they are learning and practicing. Master Fanelli expects discipline, focus, and effort from the kids because he truly wants them to understand & learn the skills. I have watched my 6-year-old son make great progress, and really enjoy the classes and have fun. Our two-year old daughter watches the classes and can't wait to join in too when she gets a little older. We highly recommend this studio to anyone looking for a *great* Tae Kwon Do teacher & studio.view less

My daughter is very active and athletic, she loves to learn all the Tae Kwon Do moves taught by Master Fanelli. It is so much fun for her to learn and play at the studio. I am very happy to see her progress here. Master Fanelli not only gives students professional Tae Kwon Do training, but also teaches kids to be diligent and respectful.
My son, Mac, started with All-Pro Tae Kwon Do Studio when he was 5 years old. He is now 12 years old and did a private testing for his black belt. Mac played other sports throughout the years and would miss a month here and there but never gave up Tae Kwon Do. The confidence and respect he learned for others and himself definitely came from his experience at All-Pro Tae Kwon Do Studio. Though we acknowledge the work and determination of my son Mac, we also know he is where he is at...view more because of Master Fanelli and his team of highly trained black belt instructors. I sincerely thank you Master Fanelli for all your positive influences on my son and others!view less
All-Pro Tae Kwon Do was highly recommended to us by a close family friend, so my wife went in to check it out. Our daughter was invited to try out some classes at no obligation, and was enthusiastic right away. She likes and respects Master Fanelli - his students want to do their best for him - and we think the regard is mutual! The students are motivated to focus and work hard, while having fun. Besides the experienced quality instruction, as parents we appreciate the clean, comfortab...view morele studio with wifi, easy communication with Master Fanelli, the website, the location, and the schedule flexibility.

I wish I could give this place a zero star rating but that doesn't exist.
It's a shame that so many don't believe the negative reviews about Andrew Fanelli. They are very true because I've been one of his victims and I can confirm that he has victimized 5 other families. He did go to small claims court and lost this is true because I met the women personally over the summer. Everyone has a right to their opinion and it's a shame that only positive reviews get posted on Yelp. He ha...view mores sent out emails to his clients asking them to give a 5 star review and he will offer so called private lessons. The only reason we do this is so people are aware but go ahead and throw away your money, his only concern is himself not his business. It's called the used car salesmen approach.view less
All-Pro Tae Kwon Do Studio has taught our kids respect for adults and self-discipline. In addition to learning self-defense, they have taught many other valuable life lessons. Master Andrew Fanelli is responsible for our 8 year old refusing junk food and asking for healthy food choices. Our kids know they must get good grades and make wise choices outside of the studio in order to test for their next belt. We strongly recommend All-Pro Tae Kwon Do Studio for anyone who is thinking of p...view moreutting their child in a martial arts program.view less
I've had my two boys at All Pro for 6 months and highly recommend it.
During this time they have learned about discipline and respect in a fun and challenging environment. I like how the sessions are scheduled, so that even on a busy week we can still get in a few days at the gym. The sessions are also varied to avoid monotony and end with a different, exciting game that the kids really enjoy. Stretching and safety are always emphasized. Assistant instructors Raymond and Steven...view more are great! The older students who assist seem to be very nice too.
From my judo and wrestling background I know the importance of a clean mat, and the first thing I noticed (and checked) about All Pro was its cleanliness. Other things I like about the studio are its location, with easy post-workout food places and coffee places near by, and the comfortable outside patio for watching.
It's also nice to have both boys, who are 4 years apart in age, have classes together. My oldest likes to help teach the younger his forms at home (so cool for dad to watch!)
To get both boys all the way through black belt seems expensive though and I hope we can keep it going. With our current schedule, we are paying about $10 per class. There are other testing and equipment costs.view less
Master Andrew Fanelli is extremely knowledgeable, but more importantly he has an excellent attitude and great teaching technique. He is exceedingly friendly, never talks down to his students, and while there is most certainly an atmosphere of respect and admiration towards him in the school, there is no sense of intimidation or ego around the man. There is also none of the elitist, dogmatic attitude that many schools have where other styles are regularly criticized and disrespected. On...view more the contrary, Master Fanelli is a very respectful, humble man and encourages that same outlook amongst his students.
All-Pro Tae Kwon Do is a fantastic school for someone wanting to learn Martial Arts, but also interested in a focus on real-world defense applications, all while in a friendly, fun atmosphere.view less
