I have trained at other BJJ schools. At Lewis, the philosophy and instruction are unsurpassed. I can’t say enough about the two high-level black belt instructors. They are passionate about jiu-jitsu and patient with their students at all levels. The students are respectful of each other and no one is there to prove how tough they are. The higher belts are always willing to share techniques during the fundamental and free rolling classes. In helping each other, we all get better. I have been training at Lewis for 3 years have learned something new at each and every class I have attended.
My son has been training at Lewis’ Karate School for almost six years now. In that time, I have seen my shy four-year old become a confident and self-assured young boy. This is all due to the phenomenal training program and instructors at the school. Whether your child has a learning disability, medical condition that requires special attention, or is just looking to enjoy the karate experience, every student is treated accordingly and with great attention. Lewis’ Karate School is a great atmosphere for students to gain self-confidence and life learning skills as well as a love of the martial arts.
My son Andrew has been a student of Lewis’ Karate for a number of years. Mr. Lewis and his team have embraced Andrew and our family and the school became an important part of his learning and development. Both my husband and I have demanding careers and managing both our professional and personal lives can be challenging. The after school program provides us with the confidence and support we need to ensure that Andrew is being provided with both the right environment as well as a program that is contributing to his development.
The Lewis team is truly and extension of our family. I know with confidence that each day I never have to worry about where he is, what he is doing and that he is okay. Along with that he is working on developing his skill in karate and gaining the confidence and focus which this provides. I often have people ask how I can manage everything given the challenges I have. My answer is with a strong support team. Lewis’ Karate is an integral part of that support network for me and for Andrew. Enrolling Andrew both with Lewis Karate and the After School Program is perhaps one of the best decisions that I have made.
The Lewis’ Karate School After School Program has gone a long way towards cutting down my after-school stress. As a full-time teacher, I found it difficult to pick up my kids after school, run them home for a meal that ended up more like a snack, and get them down to the dojo in time for class. The LKS After School Program is a great opportunity for my oldest daughter to make friends with other karate students, attend their karate classes, get homework done, and enjoy healthy snacks while doing so. Mr. Steve and the other instructors are warm, friendly, and have maintained great communication with me so I know what’s going on with my oldest right away after school. My youngest is very excited to join the program next year – more excited than starting “big school”! Thanks, LKS!
Dear Lewis Karate School,
I would just like to say thank you so much. Your karate school has made such a difference in the life of our family. Our children and my husband have so much more self confidence and pride. No, that is not a bad thing at all! Lewis’ Karate School is much more than a martial arts school.
Our 11 year old was being bullied in the school yard almost daily. He was walking with his head between his shoulders. I was concerned that he might take his life. Now he is going for testing on his green belt, doing well in school, arranges activities with friends at school and at home. He does not wait for the bullies to attack him. He is willing to take on new adventures. The change in our son is amazing! He has friends in karate and at home. He laughs and lives!
My husband was up to a size 40 in pant size. I was very concerned as we are 42 years old this year. Well, thanks to changing our diet, and karate 4 times a week, he is down to a size 32! His self-confidence has increased. Now he is making friends and talking to other karate school members.
We have 3 other children in karate as well. They enjoy karate so much. They laugh through the opening exercises and love the rewards of the tips and belts. Every morning our JK little boy is asking if it is Ninja Tots day with a big smile. The other two kids are always asking if it is their karate day.
If our house would sell we would move closer to Lewis’ Karate – it is our second home and we have friends there. We are at karate three times a week minimum. I can honestly say that Lewis’ Karate has improved our family life. We have a waiting time between classes, so we now go to the park as a family (or if the weather is bad, we go to look at toys at Walmart!).
Thanks Trevor, Sandy, Nathan and TeamLKS!
From One Happy LKS Family!
