    My 5-year-old attends this studio.  He has attended since July, and he has learned so much and gained a lot of confidence in just a short time. First of all, the studio is SPOTLESS.  It is brand new and sparkling clean, with good natural light and plentiful equipment.  Second, the class options are great, with a WeeKick class offered every T-F and Saturday.  This means that there are never too many kids in a class.  Master Alonzo himself is usually teaching them, which is great!  The classes themselves are a full hour long, which our kid complains about sometimes because they do real workouts (5-year-olds doing burpees!) and he is tired at the end.  But I consider this a great thing.  Finally, Master Alonzo... he's wonderful.  He manages to be super friendly, fun, funny and a great teacher, but still commands attention and respect.  He has a great non-physical approach to boundary-setting and sticking up for oneself and others that he reinforces during each class, in addition to teaching the martial arts fundamentals.  I used to be involved in martial arts, and so was very particular when choosing an instructor and studio for our little guy.  Master Alonzo hits every mark in our book, and we are so pleased!---Lo S.


    My two sons have had training with Master Richard Alonzo since they were 5 years old.  Master Alonzo is one in a million.  He is an exceptional mentor and Taekwondo instructor.  My older son who is a second degree black belt, now at age 20, continues to train under Master Alonzo.  I recommend this instructor to all parents and to anyone who is looking for the best martial arts training from a real human being.---Shari M.
