My family has been going to DCMA for a year now, I'm a pre-school teacher and could not be more pleased with the Academy. Before we attended DCMA we "shopped" around. ( and we went to quite a few places) We couldn't find what we were looking for, if the instructors were good they were WAY too hard on the kids, if we liked the atmosphere was good the Instructor had his students teaching the class and never came out of the office, and some just did not have a good feeling to them. But from the very first day we walked into DCMA it had a very "FAMILY" feeling. Everyone is so nice and willing to help, teach and LEARN. Which we feel are very important values we want our kids to learn. No matter what color belt at DCMA, everyone has something they can contribute to our FAMILY. I STRONGLY recommend that you stop by and take a look, cause no matter the age, skill level, gender, or learning abilities DCMA has strong instructors that can meet the needs you are looking for. Cause when you join DCMA your not just joining an academy your joining a FAMILY!
