They are amazing instructors with the skills to handle both of my busy boys (3 and 5 years old). Confidence, respect, and self-control are the biggest highlights my boys have learned over the past year at Ripple Effect Martial Arts!

Our experience at REMA has far exceeded my expectations. When our 4 year-old requested that he get involved in "karate", we had no idea what it might involve. Our son is developing his core values, gaining self confidence, and learning about humility. He wants to exercise and get stronger and thrives in a challenging yet supportive enviroment created by REMA. There is also an admiration that he has developed for REMA instructors. He has so many young leaders to learn from which at times is more powerful than all that we do at home. I feel like he has an extra layer of support to reinforce the importance of being a positive role model, making healthy choices, and learning how to acheive his goals. The other students are helpful and respectful to each other including the younger students. I am so grateful for the experience that he has each day he enters this martial arts school!!!!!

There is not enough that I can say about Ripple Effect Martial Arts. Everyone there is amazing. You can really tell that every staff member there is invested in the students well being and success. Miss Sierra and the rest of the team there is always there to help my daughter when she can't tie her belt correctly. Our family really loves everyone there. They also help the students to focus not just on the martial arts they do but to focus in every area of their life. I feel like they take the time with my daughter and know how to help her. She has flourished there, even more than I thought she could. The instructors helped her to become more confident with everything she does and there are no words to express my gratitude. I tell everyone I meet about how amazing Ripple Effect Martial Arts is and recommend them to everyone. Everyone there really makes you feel like you are apart of the Ripple Effect family. If anyone is looking for a great place to take their children or for themselves for martial arts I highly recommend Ripple Effect.

Our family has been studying Tae Kwon Do with Ripple Effect for almost a year now. It's hard to say enough good to do them justice! As a parent I really appreciate that the curriculum includes frequent lessons on goal setting, peer pressure, self-awareness, household chore completion, academic rigor etc. Even better, the instructors and staff are fantastic role models that display these values in action. As a health care provider I also really appreciate the breadth of fitness required to advance in belt rank-aerobic training, strength, flexibility, balance, agility-all part of every class.

Ripple Effect Martial Arts is a family owned martial arts studio, and as a member there, we are treated like so. We have been a part or REMA for 8 months now, and I am absolutely astounded and impressed by the way they perform and the impact they have made on my son. I’ve been able to watch Byron and his fellow students grow and achieve alongside each other with remarkable success, developing traits like confidence, self-esteem, courtesy, and respect. The instructors are skilled marital artists and reflect the character of such. This school teaches and carries out thoroughly what they promise. They focus on important skills and values important to good character while carrying out a physical exercise that demands precision and excellence. Students have an excellent opportunity to grow. The instructors are skilled, genuine, kind, patient, cheerful, and have such a special way of connecting with the kids. Families enjoy taking martial arts together here, and the curriculum meets the needs of all ages and abilities. I absolutely LOVE coming here and consider REMA family to me.

If I could rate more than 5 stars, I would! The instructors at Ripple Effect are invested in every single student here. In addition to having black belts themselves, the instructors are genuine, humble & have high expectations of the students. Ripple Effect focuses on developing character traits (such as modesty, courtesy, integrity) just as much as teaching/developing students' martial arts skills. The environment is professional and welcoming to all. I highly recommend Ripple Effect Martial Arts!
