When my son age 11 wanted to get back into Martial arts I was a bit hesitant from a previous experience from martial arts due to lack of discipline and lack of connection between instructors and kids. I called around looking for a good fit. Then I called Budo Shingikan and talked to Shannon I told her about my sons and his experience, she gave me all the information to make the right decision. I enrolled my son into class and by the second week I knew I made the right choice. Mr. Manny and Mr. Skyler are great instructors they made my son feel at home. They explain what they are teaching at a level that kids understand. They teach them discipline they teach them respect and help build their character. At Budo Shingikan students have the ability to grow and be the best they can be. I knew my son found his home at Budo Shingikan when he said to me dad I want that red gi and black belt .
