''When our son was seven years old we tried a local karate school. Our son's interest was never engaged and the school lacked discipline. At eight years of age, we looked again and discovered Soo Bahk Do Karate of Gillette. Our son is now 14 years old and is a Black Belt. He attends at least two times a week and we never have to push him; he is always ready and excited to go. He has learned so much more than just self-defense; he has been emerged in the art of SBD. The Masters are engaging, caring and teach discipline. Our son is now a teaching helper and refers to the participants in his class as his students. He knows everyone by name and their capabilities, while always developing a plan to bring them to the next level. Soo Bahk Do Karate of Gillette is not just a place to learn self-defense, but it is also a place to learn about life, responsibility, and enabling maturity. "

''Karate has improved my children's confidence and it instills good moral values. I decided to give it a try after watching other women like me participating in the classes. I'm so glad I did because it is one of the few activities we can all participate in as a family. Training with my Karate class has made me achieve goals I never thought possible anymore."
