If it were possible to give a higher rating than 5-star, I would! Christian and Kelly are wonderful instructors who have their students’ well-being in mind and at heart, first and foremost, and at all times. Besides the obvious self-defense skills that my two boys (9 and 7) are learning, they are learning life lessons. Christian brings his experience, expertise, and knowledge to each and every class with enthusiasm. He does it in a meaningful way that instructs the students for their benefit throughout all aspects of life, rather than just churning and burning them like some of the “belt factories” I’ve heard of. My sons started almost one year ago and just recently received their green belts, attending both group and private classes throughout the year. So, it’s not easy but you can rest assured and feel good about truly earning each promotion. I recommend both group and private classes as the individual instruction received in private classes is irreplaceable. I believe that due to these instructors and this school, karate is something my kids will enjoy for the rest of their lives. Soo Bahk!

I am so grateful to have found this karate school and look forward to my time in class every time.

Master Christian Naggiar is a wonderful instructor bringing enthusiasm, specificity and variety into each class. It was a big surprise to me to find a karate school with this level of quality in Hollywood.

What I most appreciate about this place is the friendliness and respect that everyone has for one another. It is so rewarding to be acknowledged for one’s progress. And there is so much to learn here. It is the perfect combination of self-defense, workout and martial art. It truly adds a lot of value to my life to be a part of this school and I miss it whenever I can’t go. It’s just wonderful.
