I have completed 4 Cardio Kickboxing classes so far and I love it! The staff is very friendly and helpful. I have no prior kickboxing experience, but the class instructors were patient and helpful. The classes are 45 minutes but the time flies by. It's such a great workout! Their latest class is at 6pm so it can be a rush for those who work until 5.
My family has been coming to this wonderful school for several years now. It started as a summer activity for my son while his sister was gone for the summer. He loved it and wanted to continue past the summer so we decided to keep him in it. His sister wanted to join so we also started her in classes. After while I really like what I was seeing and thought it would be great to join in as well so I did. All three of us take classes now and also compete on the competition team.
My son had a lot of ups and downs when it came to taking class no matter how much he loves it. The instructors have always been great working with him. He has grown over the years while taking classes and I believe the great instructors here played a great role in that.
It has been great watching my daughter blossom as she has moved up the ranks. She has really come to be a very confident leader. She helps the instructor with the dragons class on Saturday and she is always working with the lower belts in the classes she takes to make sure they are learning. It is a great joy to watch these things and see how she has developed into a very awesome young lady. She also competes at a high level on the competition team. The coaches do a great job with her and help her prepare to go out there and to do the best she can and she comes home with medals and has competed nationally twice now.
She recently tested and earned her recommendation belt and one step away from testing for her black belt and I don’t know of a better school in this area for her to be at in order to accomplish the feat of earning her blackbelt.
I also enjoy working out and learning from the great instructors we have at this school. I am earning my belts at a slower rate than my kids but I get out there with them. They also got me out working with competition team and I have competed at a few tournaments now. Something I never thought I would do.
This is a great school with great instructors committed to motivate our kids to do their best and get the best out of our kids. The coaches do a great job preparing our competition team to compete at a high level as we travel around the Midwest and go to nationals in the summer. The parents and kids here are one big happy family and it is great to be part of this community.
I really can't say enough about how much Kelly's Martial Arts has done for my kids. My son & daughter have been taking classes here for 4 years now. In that time I have appreciated the genuine support, care, and training that the instructors have provided. I have watched my kids learn confidence, develop leadership skills, and better learn how to manage their ADHD. Highly recommended!
