Not Any Better Than Before... – Not any better than before.
Mr. Hudson is fine but the "lead" instructor Miss Tori Peterson has her own agenda. She does not like teaching, is horrible with the kids and above all is so stuck up her nose touches the ceiling.
I would not allow my child to be taught by her.
Miss Tori starts out overly friendly as if trying to "buy" you but it does not take long for her true personality to shine through.
Would not recommend this place to anyone that is trying to build a child's self esteem as it is the "lead" instructor that needs some self esteem help.
UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP – Taylorsville Karate for Kids is under new ownership. 4th Degree Black Belt, Mr. Ron Hudson is the new owner. 3rd Degree Black Belt, Miss Tori Peterson is the Head Instructor.

A Taylorsville Karate instructor was arrested and charged with sexually abusing a teenage student.
31-year-old James Dickinson allegedly abused a 15-year-old boy. According to court documents, the teen's parents found out about the abuse by reading messages Dickinson reportedly exchanged with their son on Facebook.
"He'd been sending sexually explicit messages, along with trying to make arrangements to meet up," said Troy Martinez, Taylorsville Police Dept. "They felt concerned enough that they called the police, and that's when we got the case."
Dickinson has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor.
Misleading – This place is a fine dojo, but the name is all wrong. They do NOT teach karate. They teach Tae Kwon Do.
This Guy is Great! – My son has just recently began lessions here, and we absolutely love it! James is so incredibly great with the kids! My son is excited and learning well.
This Instructor is great! – I am very impressed with Mr. Dickensen's skill and patience in teaching children. We have been very happy going to this Karate studio. My son very much enjoys his time there. It has been great for building his self-esteem as well as his Physical well being.
I would recommend this studio.
