Whatever you do avoid this place not only are they one of the Highest priced ones in Norman, but they lie to you and deceive you, they do not tell you all your options that you have for membership before you sign your contract, ( giving one person a free 30 day trial for the same thing you are taking BUT do not offer it to you) then they bully you into signing a contract. trying to cancel is next to impossible, and once you do cancel the instructors at Victory are nothing but rude and do not try to be helpful, Like i said there are nicer ones out there so please do your research, they take advantage of people who do not know they offer deals and when you go in they do not openly offer this information unless you already know about it.
I have been involved in martial arts for over a 31 years. In that time I have experienced many different styles of training and teachers. My experience with Master Swinford has been second to none. The best compliment I can give is that my children are now students of Master Swinford's school.
I would not recommend this business. After 5 years of lessons with Victory Martial Arts my son has been denied the privilege of testing for his black belt once again. He is repeatedly told he is simply "not good enough". The business owner is more interested in making money than providing a positive environment for the children to learn and develop skills necessary for success.
My son was being bullied. NOT ANYMORE!!! – My son was being bullied in school. We watched his self-esteem plummet as a result of it. We desperately wanted to help him learn self-defense and at the same time rebuild his self-esteem. . We enrolled at a martial arts school here in Norman. Disappointed is an understatement. Not only was my son not learning real self-defense but also there was no structure at this school. So we moved on to another and another. Three Martial Arts schools!!! The last martial art school was the worst. My son was actually bullied by the instructor. My son did not even want to go. Then, I heard about Victory Martial Arts. I was skeptical at first. And having already been to three martial arts schools I had good reason. I am not even sure why we went to the introductory lesson. I had all but given up. I am so glad we went. Victory is different. Master Swinford promises results and he delivers. The classes are structured and the kids have a blast. My son can't wait to get there. Victory has increased my son's self-esteem through developing his physical skills. Victory has helped to build his self-worth and give him structure in his daily life. He has learned to be respectful of others and himself. It has helped him focus on his schoolwork and activities. His teachers have commented on his behavior and how he has improved in the way he deals with problems.
Enrolling him at Victory martial arts is the best thing we could of done for him. It has given him the confidence that he needs and education and ability to defend himself as well as excel in everyday life.
Focus and self-confidence have improved dramatically. – Our 10 year old son, Matt, has been a student at Victory Martial Arts for over two years. Matt enjoys the variety of martial arts taught at the school including kickboxing, Krav Maga, and weapons, as well as the friendly atmosphere. The instructors are very knowledgeable, skilled, and extremely patient with students. Character, self-discipline, and sportsmanship are emphasized during each class. Since he began training at Victory Martial Arts, Matt's skills, focus, and self-confidence have improved dramatically. Thanks to his training, he is also well-equipped to defend himself, should the need arise.

My Son recently started classes at Victory Martial Arts about 6 months ago. What he has learned in that short amount of time has been amazing! My son had achieved his 2nd degree black belt from another martial arts/Tae Kwon Do School. We decided to leave that school after 4 1/2 years after my son complained about not really learning anything new and the Grandmaster was not kind to the kids.
At Victory Martial Arts, my son has never complained about being bored and he looks forward to class (so much so, we attend 3 days a week). Not only does Victory teach the children self discipline, confidence, how to use weapons safely and correctly, focus and self defense- but they also teach life lessons ! We have also been impressed with the instructors - always positive and encouraging.
We live in Oklahoma City and the drive to Norman to attend the school is worth it. What my son is learning from them- is something no one can take away.
We are very happy we attend Victory Martial Arts !!!
â??Even the teachers are noticingâ?¦â?? – Master Swinford thank you for all your help and dedication to the children of the community. It sure shows with our daughter’s improvement, below you will find a note from her teacher!! - Greg V.
I just wanted to let you know how incredibly great Harley has been in class and outside of class. She is working so hard and everywhere we go outside of …the classroom she has been setting a great example for others. I am so proud of her!!! - Melissa W. Fourth Grade Teacher
My daughter has been at Victory Martial Arts for three years and she loves it! She is only in the second grade and has already learned to be a leader at Victory. The kids get incredible training to receive their Black Belts, but Victory also teaches them what being a Black Belt really means. I love how they emphasize confidence in yourself, respect and helping others. The kids at this school are the best. They really are nice to each other and are supportive of each other. Plus she has learned to defend herself in a stranger danger situation and been given confidence to do so. I always recommend Victory to my friends.
Contract Karate... Avoid! – The Karate itself is fine, but they use several tactics to rope you in. First, you sign a $1400 year-long contract in which you have three days to get out of. The contract is between you and a collection agency. You can't break out of it after three days. The contract is automatically recurring and requires a written letter to the collection agency to stop the annual recurrence. The contract requires the collection agency have access to your bank account. Second, your kid is pushed to join their black belt club (you can't get a black belt without joining the club). That entails a three year contract!
This place is a scam. Avoid at all cost!
