ARE YOU CONSIDERING MAKING YOURSELF OR YOUR CHILD A MEMBER OF THE MKTC TEAM?
Here's what one parent has to say about us:

"My daughter was aggressive and I had some reserves about her taking karate but she has channeled this aggression and is more confident with herself and is comfortable walking away from a confrontation. The instructors have helped her to improve and to be the best she can be. I also have a son who is more of a quiet person. Karate has given him more confidence and he now is more able to express himself. He loves karate and the instructors."

Kim Villars - R.N.
