Outstanding school! Adorned with the many accolades of Grandmaster Flaherty and his associates, this facility is top-notch. The studio is both bright and clean, and welcomes anyone wishing to learn from one of the best practitioners in the martial arts community. Grandmaster Flaherty, and his staff of black belt instructors do an excellent job of creating an environment that makes learning martial arts fun and enjoyable. I have been training now for about 7 months, and am rising through the ranks, thanks to their eagerness to teach, willingness to help, and patience to guide. Everyone is so friendly that as soon as you walk through the doors to join, you immediately feel like part of the FKKA family. If good quality instruction, in a friendly, professional atmosphere is what you’re looking for, I invite you to the perfect place, Flaherty’s Kenpo Karate.

Whether you are new to Aikido or a seasoned black belt, you'll find a home with New School. Come be part of positive change in Stockton!
This is the best Taekwondo place in Stockton. I actually went here for a little while. I checked out the other Taekwondo place down pacific and harding, but they were all about money, eagerly trying to get you in the door to rip you off. Not this place, here even though they have a yearly contract, the price is fair and they don't try to make you sign up. I was paying only $90 a month. They also respect when you leave and don't try to squeeze more money out of you by making you sign up for a new contract. They let you decide wheather you would like to persue TKD or not. I only left because there was mostly little kids and not enough adults. I didn't like to belt test with all the parents of the little kids watching me :) it made me feel stupid, but that my own insicurity.
