Thank YOU Sensai My story starts at age three watching power rangers in front of the tv learning the movies and what not until i was inrolled in talamantez karate. then i relize i was some where that i felt proud, confident, and loyal. i felt that every time i talked about karate i felt part of the talamantez family. Training harder then any other student i could see. beside my instructors left to right i felt that this is one of my greatest accomplishments in my life. i trained till i was 7 then i had no choice but to leave under my life style and the constant moving. after that i felt empty, and like a lost soul... Until the age of 16 i was passing by the studio on bandera rd. and saw it was open. i stepped in side bowed and i saw sensai perez, flashbacks came to me as i saw him. we talked and decided that it was time to come back. as he spoke with Master T it gave me the thrill to see my master once again. so he invited me to stop by the studio on redland. so the next day i was off. we got lost but we mange to find it. as i walked in i saw a some what bald man and got scared but "never judge a book by its cover" he is one of the nices man there Sensai Wurth. he is excelent with children any age. then i saw Master. Master T still looked as he did i can tell it ment alot that i was coming in to see him. when he dicused how it will work i was inshock! i was just a boy the day before and then i was a boy with life and meaning and a purpose. which is to bring peace to many people. when i did my first class i was smiling constatly. and when i left i cried to myself saying"im home" it is a very emotial experience for me beacuse i was so lost in the world with out karate. As of right now i am 17 and i am the coach for XMA( EXTREME MARTIAL ARTS) and i enjoy doing it. i also train with two OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING INSTRUCTORS like Sensai Griggs. She is the most positive, proud women i have ever met, she is also a great person to talk to. Then there is Sensai Alex Talamantez when i was younger and until now he has been my greatest insperating in my life i think of him as my father how he train as a child thats how i want to be trained i will go the distance for this instructor no matter what. when he pushes me i know its for a purpose and i respect it . my goal is to spare with Sensai Alex win or lose i will be proud beacuse i know it is a honor to spare agenst him. please if anyone reads this please call Talamantez Family Karate they might just change your life for the best like it did for me.
We have been members of Victory Martial Arts - Leon Springs since April of 2012 and I can't say enough about how much we LOVE this Martial Arts school. Originally we called to sign my 2 1/2 year old son up because he was at the age to begin activities and Martial Arts had always been an option my husband and I had considered. At our first introduction, the instructors asked us what our goals were for the classes, areas of improvement, etc. and we said things like discipline, physical fitness, flexibility, self confidence, concentration (listening skills), etc. The instructors went through a short demo with both my son and my daughter (5 1/2 years old) who also expressed interest. Then we signed them both up. Let me tell you, my husband and I have been so impressed it's hard to express in words. Victory Martial Arts - Leon Springs (as well as all the other VMA School instructors we've been introduced to) has more than delivered! Our children have improved 1000 times in the areas we discussed + some. Not only have our children benefited from the program, but my husband and I have as well. Since we signed up as a family (2 members = family plan) all 4 of us are able to attend the classes. They have kids only classes, family classes where you can participate with your child, and adult only classes at all times during the day and evening to easily fit your schedule. You can attend as many classes a week as you want (recommend at least 2) for the one price. If you ask me this is a total bargain, especially if you take into consideration that no other activity we've had my daughter in (dance, gymnastics, music, etc.) allows for the entire family to attend every day of the week for that one monthly price. And, this is the ONLY activity my daughter has not fussed about not wanting to attend (as young kids typically do). The high level of positive reinforcement really works. The instructors (Mr. Turner, Ms. Collins, and Ms. Sammon at Leon Springs in particular) are professional, caring, engaged in each individual's improvement, and lead by example. We are forever grateful to have found Victory Martial Arts for our family!
My adopted son is 4 years old. He was born addicted to heroin. Unfortunately, little ones born with a drug addiction often have problems such as ADHD, learning disabilities, and other behavioral problems. I could not get my son to listen or be responsive to direction. We walked by Victory Martial Arts and my son wanted to watch the class. One of the instructors gave him a 30 day trial pass. I was very hesitant because of the issues he was having. I spoke with Mr. Turner and he didn't seem worried in the least about enrolling my son. I went ahead and signed him up. Within a matter of 3 weeks, I already began to notice very positive changes in my son. He listened better, and was starting to respond to direction. It has only been two months since he started and I am happy to report that the progress continues. He is more respectful and has stopped virtually all aggressive behavior. Mr. Turner is amazing! He has done more for my son in several weeks than behavioral therapists have done for him over the last year and a half. My husband and I are very grateful. Every parent of a VMA student with whom I have spoken, tells a story of the growth and development of their child since joining VMA. I would suggest to any parent who is considering VMA for their child, to enroll him immediately and watch with amazement how your child grows. This is simply the best decision I have ever made. It is an investment in my son's future and I know he will be successful!
