Silveus Taekwondo in Dallas, Texas is truly a hidden jewel. He is a 5 star blackbelt and dedicated to teaching because it is a passion for him not a job. He is very humble and does not advertise at all to promote his school. Many of his students find him by word of mouth. He actually has an unrelated full time job at night. He is an amazing teacher and makes sure his students learn the right way to do things. He is not a factory for handing out black belts for an expensive price. In fact he is the most reasonably priced and the most flexible of all other places I know. We go when we want, up to 3 times a week, either at 4:30p or 5:30p during the week or 8:30a in the morning on Saturdays. We have been going to him for 2 years now. Several parents actually take the class with their kids. He is great with adults and terrific with children. He doesn't just teach taekwondo, he teaches self-defense, discipline (which is great for young kids), patience and more. There are many families who have been going to him for years. Some have even went to other places and eventually came back to him. I have four kids and tons of extracurricular activities every day. We have gotten more out of going to Master Silveus than any other activity yet. He most definitely has my five star rating!!!!
Review 6 I am a student of Wujiquan at the Wujido Institute. The training is Unique and not like other martial arts to my knowledge, very demanding. I am convinced that Wujiquan is far superior to other martial arts for me. The techniques I am taught are very powerful. It is difficult to describe how that is. I think I can understand why Dr Harkins screens a student before allowing that person to study Wujidquan under him. Luckily a person can join the Wujido and train while the candidate is observed for good character, integrity, and sincerity along with an ability to sustain effort over a long period of time. He considers it very important to protect the lineage for the future from being corrupted. Mark
If you don't know who Carlos Machado is, then google it. Great Jiu-Jitsu school! My son has been there for 17 months. He started when he was nine and has progressed into a very talented BJJ practitioner. What's crazy is how mature he has become. On numerous occasions I have watched him allow lower belt students work on him and actually let the lower belt students tap him out. He makes sure the kids are applying the techniques correctly and doesn't let them get the submissions til they do it properly. There's a sign as you enter the school that says leave your ego at the door. To have a 9, 10, 11 year old understand and practice this is outstanding. Absolutely awesome!!!
