To be honest, I was quite leery of having my son take karate initially. He was having issues listening, hitting his brother and the last thing I wanted was for him to become more aggressive learning how to punch and kick. He's been in USA Karate Rosemount for about 6 months now and I've already noticed a drastic difference in positive life-skills that I never would have expected. He's now nicer to his brother, a much better listener and respectful in school and home.
Nothing against other sports or programs, but more than anything else we've tried, Karate has been by far the most positive and motivating experience for him to date.
