Review №1

I love St Matthews Martial Arts! My daughter has been training there for 2 years. The instructors are wonderful and really great with the kids. I love that they do more than just karate with the fun days, presentation tournament, bully prevention and self defense classes they also offer. I highly recommend it!

My sons go here and have had a great experience. The instructors are knowledgeable, patient people and they bring a lot of fun to the students. My sons love it and theyve stuck with it because of the level of engagement given to them. The individual attention really stands out. Less about earning belts and more about gaining self-confidence and control.

Every person working there is as helpful as possible. They work to create a very inclusive and enjoyable environment for everyone. My son loves going. I know nothing about martial arts, but they are very focused on positive aspects. It doesnt seem militaristic at all. Nothing but great experiences there for the past few months wee been going.

WHOA! If I was rating based on coolness factor it would be level 100+. They have mastered the art of teaching kids and adults martial arts and so much more. You could read every review on their page but words alone do not do justice. I do not know if they still offer a FREE class but either way you will not know what you are missing out on until you give it a shot!

Our son trained at St. Matthews Martial Arts starting in kindergarten. Hes now a freshman in college, a third-degree black belt, and has taught classes, helped with birthday parties, and been an excellent punching bag during self-defense classes! Whats most awesome about this dojo is that they are concerned with the whole child/teenager/young adult--not just their physical training and progression, but their character development as well. They are, quite simply, the best!

I have known these guys and trained with them since 2005 and as an experienced martial artist and martial arts instructor I can say that they offer the best combination of teaching talents available. If I still lived in the area, Id be right there with them! You can go to other studios in the area, but you wont get the quality of education offered at St Matthews anywhere else!

Great atmosphere with people who are friends. Master Joan and Master Alan (and the rest of the staff) are incredible instructors, and the payments are month-to-month (rather than a multi-year contract like some places). For kids, its the only Creative Connection licensed school in Louisville ... the Power Cards are fun!

Super friendly people. Fun and educational. Highly recommend.

The feel of the place is a great mix between serious and fun... Our son is doing very well there and the instructors are perfect with him.

SMMA is a great place not only for kids to learn martial arts, but adults, as well. The adult classes not only teach the art itself, but also practical application and adaptation of techniques. The additional focus on self-defense is invaluable, and only makes SMMA that much easier to recommend.

St. Matthew’s Martial Arts Dojo offers a wonderful learning environment for children, teenagers, and adults. The Masters and instructors are very patient, understanding, knowledgeable, and friendly; however they do provide a safe and structured space for beginning through advanced martial arts learners. If you are someone looking for individual or small group martial art lessons for you, your children, or your entire family this is the Dojo for you. Their summer camps are loads of fun according to my six year old. Also, every last Saturday of the month they have a Fun Day from 5pm-8pm for a reasonable price which I love because my husband and I use it for a date night. Finally, my family loves all the other activities that they offer such as lightsaber days, bully prevention classes, and Women’s Self-Defense. Oh, I almost forgot Master Joan and Master Alan are amazing.

So I havent been to the studio just yet, but when I called to ask about prices, classes, and questions I had, Allen was very helpful and took the time to make sure all my questions got answered. I will definitely be giving my business to them!

St. Matthews Martial Arts is a wonderful dojo. I loved the focus on self defense and self control. As a JCPS teacher, I would recommend this for students who are interested in taking Kung-fu. Master Joan and Master Alan are fantastic!
