Great new location! My Son AK is a student of Master Chris, and he attends three days a week for multiple sessions. Master Chris and his staff have welcomed AK into their family and AK loves being the best person he can and best student possible for Master Chris. Master Chris instills confidence in my soon to be 10 year old and shows him that there is nothing he can’t do. As a parent…. I am just in awe of the advances he is making and the little man that he is becoming. Signing him up for Taekwondo was the best thing I did as a parent as far as extracurricular, I just wish…. he (could) spend 8 hours a day for five weeks under Master Chris’s instruction!
New ownership of Guardian Way’s has a level of passion and enthusiasm for the community they serve through group classes and the after school program for kids. Highly recommend trying a class!
Absolutely the best Taekwondo Place ever….If I could give Guardian Way 10 stars, I would!…Master Chris is a pro that teaches with kindness and support…The customer service is beyond amazing, the kindness and support in their teaching style is beyond words, and the excitement and encouragement from all staff is real/honest. I trust my son is getting the best education and lifelong skills from this small business…My son went to bed tonight saying, ‘I feel proud of myself and all I have accomplished.’ That’s thanks to an amazing Master Chris and a fantastic school… Instructors like this are the ones who support and drive kids to be successful!
