Dr Steven Novick

My 3 children attended this school for years. Master Dan teaches in a very kind manner but also stresses the disciplines needed to rise from belt to belt.


I could not think of a better school for children to not only learn martial arts in a safe environment but also to learn how to be kind and respectful human beings.
