Highest Recommendation – Kyuki-Do Martial Arts offers instruction in judo and tae kwon do with classes for children and adults. My experience is limited to their children's judo instruction program but I imagine it could accurately be applied to any of their classes.
My son has taken judo instruction from Kyuki-Do Martial Arts for about eight months. He's the least experienced student in the class, but all the senseis AND the other students have been very kind in helping him learn new techniques and encouraging him. The other students in the class are all very dedicated to being there and very supportive of one another.
Instruction is done in a positive and age appropriate manner. The children in this class range from five years old to teenaged. The senseis are VERY good at gauging the students is and communicating what they need to do to understand a new technique or improve a known technique. Instruction is communicated to students through a mix of spoken instruction, demonstration, and drills. The senseis are good at designing creative games and competitions which reinforce important concepts which give the kids an occasional break from more traditional teaching techniques like instruction and drills.
Lessons are one hour long each, and were on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year, and Thursdays only during the summer break. This has been a good class length - long enough to transfer information, learn and hone skills, and increase fitness - but not so long as to lose my son's attention. Parents may stay at the facility and watch the lesson/work on something or leave and return at the conclusion of the lesson.
I can't think of a time when the student/teacher ratio got higher than three students for each instructor. Lesson pricing is very fair. The facilities are comparable with other martial arts clubs I've attended - clean and well maintained.
I look forward to my other children attending classes here when they're old enough. Highest recommendation.
