I posted this to Yelp as well, but I'd like to spread this word further to avoid Master Kim's 'disciplinary' techniques:I am an old student of Master Kim.He used to physically abuse students and yell at us in cruel and vile ways.I am now 17 and his voice and what he did resonates with me to this day.I called him today and recorded it.The call was very long but I'm attaching some excerpts in the links below.I hope this review isn't taken down.I don't have any power in this situation or ever will because of the way he made me feel.Please let this review stay up and listen to what he has to say years later to prevent stuff like this from happening to your child like it did with me.on physical abuse:clyp.it/q33lgvqvon verbal abuse:clyp.it/hk3vlkwv

5 stars does not do justice, 100 stars for this dojang
My son and daughter have been attending Master Ko's class for almost a year and WOW. They have build so much confidence, let alone breaking boards. Master Ko is patient and great with all the kids. I not only signed up my 2 kids but my niece also. Love his training styles.
Pleasure interacting with Sensei Dave Goldberg
My child has been going here for the past 3 months and he loves it! Master Ko is very hands on with his students and does a great job teaching. My son learned very quickly. I would definitely recommend this Taekwondo school to parents for their children :). Mrs. Rube
This place is awesome, my son joined as one of the first students when the school opened in 4S, he loves it. the class is fast paced and still so easy for the kids to keep up and focus, the atmosphere is awesome for the kids. Sensei Parys keeps them focused and teaches them discipline along with amazing martial arts skills. I recommend this school to all of my friends who have kids.
My son, now age 13, is one of the senior members of Xtreme Starz Academy and has benefited greatly from this relationship. It not only has improved his physical capabilities but also his character and self confidence. I would highly recommend this martial arts facility to all!
I signed up my son as a "shooting star" and I have been "wowed" with Xtreme Starz Academy since the first day. Every session has been exactly what my son needs. Its fast-paced, high energy and extremely fun. I wish I were doing the classes! My son (age 4) loves it and I've never seen him more focused on a physical activity. The instructor seems to gear the classes toward what the kids really need and he is super approachable and easy to work with. I'm so happy I found this place!! I can't wait to sign up my daughter.
This martial arts school is great. I saw them at a performance they did and they were amazing. The students were flipping and breaking boards. My son kept calling them the Power Rangers. Their hard work and training shows. Keep it up.
Great atmosphere, knowledgeable and energetic staff. The kids love it and so do I.
