I signed my son up for the free two week trial in April of this year. He’s five, I thought he might be a little young but knew his interest in karate and anything ninja. This has far exceeded my expectations as a mom. I love watching him learn and grow, the curriculum is incredible and Mr Seme and Mrs. Johnson have a passion for helping each child be successful. Thank you for all you do USA Karate Rosemount!
My daughter has always been a pretty good kid. However, when we started karate we learned of some things she was doing at school that needed to be changed. Mr. Seme helped us by talking to her and explaining that it is important to do our best not just at karate, but at home, and at school. I was very pleased at her last school conference the teacher had nothing but good reports! She has been doing a FANTASTIC job at home as well. Thank you USA Karate for the support and guidance you provide to students!
I joined USA Karate as a 14 year old boy. The discipline, character development and focus that I learned in my time training here has been a lifelong gift that only continues to yield dividends. I was born with ADHD and struggled socially and with attention span with all my early schooling. I was told by my peers, teachers and teammates that I would never truly amount to anything because of my concentration and emotional issues. Karate gave me a purpose and a focus that allowed me an outlet to change all that. I have been medication free since 17, graduated college, traveled the world as a musician and linguist, and currently own my own Real Estate brokerage with multiple employees. I owe a debt to Masters Kruckow and David Younglove, as well as Steven Seme that I can never truly repay. The question is not whether USA Karate is the right place to learn, the question should be when do you start?"
My son absolutely loves coming to karate. He has gained many skills, including confidence and self control. He has made many good friends while learning. The Instructors are amazing. They get to know each student and provide support, guidance, and challenge each one to do their very best.
The lessons my son has learned in karate are worth more than the money it takes to be trained.
Initially i thought to pull out my son as it is virtual classes which might not be too effective, but my kid is kind of liked and Mr. Seme and Mrs. Johnson made sure that everything in place except the last minute game. So i am glad that one activity is running smooth during this situation. I say USA Karate really fighting the covid-19. Keep going!
Great learning experience! Joey has greatly improved in school due to the program. He loves and can’t wait to get his black belt in 2021!
My daughter recently had a cyber-bullying incident. I was very proud of how bold she was in telling the person to stop. I am so thankful that she brought this to my attention quickly and things didn’t escalate. I truly believe that the bully prevention seminars USA Karate has done helped her know what to do in this situation. Thank you. I am very grateful we began this journey for our kids. Not only will they be able to stick up for themselves in case of an attack they also know how to verbally stand up for themselves, and to get an adult involved ASAP! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you for all that you and Mrs.Johnson has done! I see a huge improvement in every aspect- at home, chores, at school. She recieved all 4s on her progress report which is amazing!
I enrolled my children in classes about 18 months ago. They absolutely love it! The program is wonderful. The kids enjoy the physical activity of karate. It is much more than physical activity however. It is a program where they learn respect, hard work and goal setting. It impacts our daily life outside of the studio by helping them to do chores at home and concentrate on their school work to earn special rewards in karate class. I loved the program so much that I, myself, joined karate 6 months ago! It is a wonderful way to stay active and be connected with my children in a new way.
My wife and I did not think our daughter Amelia would like going to karate. She had gone with our neighbor girl. She loves going to USA Karate & Yoga in Rosemount. The instructors Mr. Seme and Mrs. Johnson are very nice and very professional. They teach the kids to treat others with respect & just to be good kids overall. They teach the kids to focus not only in their class but in school and at home. My daughter proudly told me she used black belt focus in school the other day. Amelia sure is excelling in her karate skills thanks to the wonderful instructors!!
Evelyn has been working really hard at being helpful at home as well as using “yes sir” and “yes ma’am” to my wife and myself. She has been asking for more responsibility with chores at home. She is also working hard at school and being respectful to her brother and sister!
Thank you USA Karate! I appreciate how fast you took action in starting online classes. My son is enjoying them!
I enrolled my son in martial arts at USA Karate last summer and I have no regrets; it’s a great program with friendly instructors. I appreciate that their program focuses on both learning physical skill specific to martial arts as well as psychosocial skills related to character development. Since joining USA Karate my son’s motivation to complete his chores and his homework has increased… and he enjoys the program! I highly recommend USA Karate!
The bully prevention program was fun and interactive. The role playing was helpful for simple and easy to remember ideas on how to handle bullying situations for kids. My son and I were able to share what we learned with friends and family. The pizza and movie were an added bonus!
USA Karate in Rosemount is more than just a Karate studio. The outstanding instructors instill leadership, discipline, attention to detail and accountability within each lesson. My son has had to earn each belt and will be achieving his Black Belt in 2019. Great studio for kids of all ages and adults as well.
From the first day I signed my son up for classes at USA Karate, I start to see many things different with him in a good way! Now he is a green belt. He started to be great in everything like cleaning his room, helping to clean the house, helping with the dishes, and at school too. The school called me to meet my son's teacher and she told me how my son is different than before. He is smarter with more focus, more confidence, his memory is better, he is a good helper, he shares with others what he learns in karate. God bless the teachers at karate that they help my son improve so much. I want to tell everyone to try USA Karate for their family in Rosemont with Mr. Seme and Mrs. Johnson.
Thank you so much for offering virtual real-time karate lessons during this pandemic! We are so thankful- my daughter has something to look forward to. The virtual classes are well organized- instructors still give feedback and highlight students in their accomplishments, which has kept my daughter motivated and learning! Virtual one-on-ones are offered and also training videos and routines. Lots to keep them busy and improving!
We really enjoy the character development portion of the karate program. It is nice to have our home values reinforced in our daughter’s activity. Love that the instructors find a way to teach a group class but still give each child the feedback to become their own best.
Thank you for hosting such a meaningful event. Thank you, Mr. Seme for being such a wonderful role model not only to my by son, but also to me. You reminded me of so many important things in regards to being our best selves. Plus, I broke a freaking board!!! How many mom's can say that!?!
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.
