I brought my child in because of an issue at school. My son was being bullied by a kid in school and my wife and I didn't know what to do. We live in West Chase and started looking locally. We found Shim Shin Do within a couple minutes of my house. We had tried a couple other schools in the past couple years to no avail. We met with Grand Master Barriga and quickly realized he and his school were exactly what we were looking for. He was all about self defense and that's what I wanted and needed my son to learn. The other schools we attended were more for the attack and fighting which isn't what myself or many others are looking for. Thank you again to all of the phenomenal instructors and the friendly environment guys. If you're looking for a good quality school with none of the aggressiveness look no further, you have found it.

Incredibly fun. It is a great combination of dicipline and inovations that profesor Rafael always bring. Profesor Rafael and coach Robert, are very dedicated and really good with kids. My son Piero, is in his 2nd month and I have seen so many changes, he is eating much better (one of my concerns), very responsible, dedicated, feels important, proud... and this as a mom brings me to the top. I have seen his progress since day one. I can see myself joining too in a close future ;-) . Also, profesor Rafael make upfates and keep in touch with all thru facebook.Proud momMarilyne Torres MelendezMom ofPiero Zinedine
My daughter, niece and nephew have been attending this Tae Kwon Do school for over a year and absolutely love it. It's worked miracles on their self esteem, obedience and focus. The children not only enjoy the lessons being taught but also the joy of seeing their friends and getting involved in different activities with them. Highly recommend this afterschool and summer program!!! In addition, the staff is amazing, so loving and very respectful.
Awesome academy with great staff and students. Rafael really knows his stuff! He gets his skills from Marcio "Pe de Pano" Cruz himself, a legend in bjj! You can't go wrong.
Best place in town for BJJ! Professor Rafael De Lime is a world class instructor and BJJ grappler. Great environment for both adults and children. Come join in the fun!
