I have 3 kids under 6 and really hard to find things they can all do. Since making the decision to stay at home with them last year and my hubs working nights I had been looking for something different they would all love. Never thought it would be Karate lol. I found an ad on FB for "little ninjas" and I thought ok.. lets do it. my littlest cant participate yet. but the other 2 love it! The instructors are so patient and thorough. The owner(lead), Jesse is so attentive to the families. weve been going for a few months now and Im amazed to see the relationships built.. not just with the kids, but with the parents. really a great place to train. we are very happy with them 🙂
