Victory Martial Arts at Leon Springs is one of the best decisions my wife and I have made for our family. Like most parents who start their children in martial arts, we wanted our boys to develop more self confidence and to break out of their comfort zones. What we didn't expect is that my wife and I would also begin training and we would be working on the areas that we needed to improve. Mr. Evan Turner is a natural leader and teacher. He motivates the children entrusted to him to break through their limitations and grow as future leaders. He challenges the adults who train to set goals and take responsibility to become better spouses, parents, employees or bosses. The goal of Victory Martial Arts Leon Springs is not to turn you or your child into the next Bruce Lee. However, Mr. Turner will push anyone learning from him to be the best martial artist they can be. Tae Kwon Do is only the tool that is used to develop responsibility, self-esteem, respect, honesty, discipline, integrity, communication and loyalty.
My husband and I adopted our son who was born addicted to heroin. At 4 years of age, we were beginning to notice significant behavioral problems. More specifically, he was very strong willed, resistant to direction, didn't listen, talked back, demonstrated aggression towards others, and often ran off in parking lots which created very dangerous situations. After working with Mr. Turner at Victory Martial Arts in Leon Springs for only 2 months, I am amazed at the positive changes my husband and I have noticed. Mr. Turner has done more for Tommy in several weeks than therapists have done for him in a year and a half! He has stopped hitting, running away, and does a significantly better job listening and following direction. We are extremely grateful for all Mr. Turner has done for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend VMA at Leon Springs to anyone! Mr. Turner has given Tommy the ability to be more successful in life!
We have been members of Victory Martial Arts - Leon Springs since April of 2012 and I can't say enough about how much we LOVE this Martial Arts school. Originally we called to sign my 2 1/2 year old son up because he was at the age to begin activities and Martial Arts had always been an option my husband and I had considered. At our first introduction, the instructors asked us what our goals were for the classes, areas of improvement, etc. and we said things like discipline, physical fitness, flexibility, self confidence, concentration (listening skills), etc. The instructors went through a short demo with both my son and my daughter (5 1/2 years old) who also expressed interest. Then we signed them both up. Let me tell you, my husband and I have been so impressed it's hard to express in words. Victory Martial Arts - Leon Springs (as well as all the other VMA School instructors we've been introduced to) has more than delivered! Our children have improved 1000 times in the areas we discussed + some. Not only have our children benefited from the program, but my husband and I have as well. Since we signed up as a family (2 members = family plan) all 4 of us are able to attend the classes. They have kids only classes, family classes where you can participate with your child, and adult only classes at all times during the day and evening to easily fit your schedule. You can attend as many classes a week as you want (recommend at least 2) for the one price. If you ask me this is a total bargain, especially if you take into consideration that no other activity we've had my daughter in (dance, gymnastics, music, etc.) allows for the entire family to attend every day of the week for that one monthly price. And, this is the ONLY activity my daughter has not fussed about not wanting to attend (as young kids typically do). The high level of positive reinforcement really works. The instructors (Mr. Turner, Ms. Collins, and Ms. Sammon at Leon Springs in particular) are professional, caring, engaged in each individual's improvement, and lead by example. We are forever grateful to have found Victory Martial Arts for our family!
RUN AWAY!!! – Pay attention to the date of the first five posts on this page, this was likely an organized letter writing campaign by Victory to raise their rating. This place is terrible… Don’t make the same mistake we did!
RUN!!!! This place is terrible!! Their primary concern is MONEY bottom line, pure and simple. They will tell you what you want to hear in order to get your cash. Everything costs money, in less than a year I dropped just over $1,000. I am surprised it does not cost money to walk through their door. We had several missed appointments with instructors, we stuck around because we thought our son liked going turns out we were wrong. We tried really hard to buy into their ideology but simply could not do it. The training is poor and the head instructor, Mr. Price, is more skilled at generating income than dealing with students. When I called to complain about an issue I was treated very rudely and Mr. Price called my wife a liar and made some EXTREMELY inappropriate insinuations about my family. When I tried to speak to his supervisor, Mr. Elder, he refused to give me his information. He told me that it did not matter what I said to Mr. Elder because he (Mr. Price) was 100% trusted and Mr. Elder would not believe what I had to say. I eventually got in contact with Mr. Elder and was promised a call that I have been waiting a couple months for. This place has some of the worst customer service I have ever encountered. Save your money, there are much better schools that do not force you to sign a contract or force you to buy their equipment at a huge markup. RUN!!!!!
Victory Leon Springs has been the most awesome experience for our family. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful program with exceptional instructors in our neighborhood! My son has been a student since last May, he was hesitant at first and now loves every minute of it! I look forward to enrolling my daughters in the program soon and continuing to watch my kids grow and learn through Victory! Mr. Turner, Ms. Collins and Ms. Sammon ROCK!
Victory-Leon Spring – My son has been a membervof Victory since August. He has been active in sports(soccer and baseball) for the last couple of years. The response he has had to the principles and culture that is fostered by Mr. Turner and Ms. Collins is like none I've seen from him before. He had adopted and executes the respect and responsibility to his school throughout the rest of his activities. Mr. Turner relates and challenges him to be respectful to himself and that has caused his confidence to grow to an all time high. He is very excited to progress throughout the belts and is excited to reach his goals. To hear him say " Yes sir" when he's asked to do his chores is also kinda cool.
Awesome martial arts for kids! – My son & daughter started in Feb 2011 and it is so awesome to see the changes in them just by attending the classes led by Mr. Turner. Their confidence has went through the roof and their behavior at home has improved by less fighting between them. I absolutely love the fact that they have so much more respect in our daily life and express it everyday! Everything that the instructors at Leon Springs Victory Martial Arts teach them in their classes are qualities that can be used all throughout their life. Our family feels very honored to have Mr. Turner, Ms. Collins & Ms. Sammons as our kids karate instructors! We greatly appreciate everything they do to help our kids succeed in their martial arts classes!
Great for all ages! – My son has been going to Victory for 16 months now and its amazing to see how much he improves after every class. He started when he turned 3 year old and after almost a year and a half, we are so proud to see his self confidence continue to soar. He's participated in tournaments and is so proud to show off all his belts and medals. He loves going to class and talking about it. We couldn't be happier with him at Victory and feel honored to have the best instructors!!
Best thing that we have done for our family – I can't say enough about this school....it has brought our family self discipline, good health, enforced the values we try to instill in our children. My entire family take class as well take part in kickboxing class! I tell anybody who I come across how great this school is...most of the time I don't have to....our respectful children demonstrate it consistntly
Great Family Program – We have been members of Victory Martial Arts Leon Springs for 6 months now and are extremely pleased with our experience. In the short amount of time we have seen our kids behavior, attitude and respectfulness improve tremendously and are looking forward to their continued growth in the leadership program. Mr. Turner and his staff do a fantastic job of keeping the kids engaged and are very mindful of what we are trying to do at home to make it a total team effort. On top of all that, our kids love going to class. My husband and I attend the kickboxing classes and have been very pleased with the results and the friendly atmosphere. Victory at Leon Springs is a great family environment and I would recommend it to everybody.
