The increases I have noticed from my eight year old son are amazing. He is faster, has better reflexes and is no longer clumsy because his balance has improved! He really is learning as well as participating in the lessons and I’m so proud of how far he’s come in such a short time. I am very excited to see how far he will go! I appreciate the staff of Yi's Karate of Vineland so much for everything they do for these kids and my son!
My son did a complete turnaround! He looks forward to doing chores, helping out around the house and learning important information that is encouraged by the studio. He knows that it's all helpful and he can in the long run be rewarded for it. His attitude has become so much more positive as well. He is much more outgoing and not afraid to speak up. His confidence has grown especially when it comes to another child being verbally or physically aggressive towards him. He no longer backs down. The structure taught at this studio is incredible! We did explore three other studios before deciding, but once we came here… Yi’s won by a landslide.
Our daughter loves it!!!! When she started she was very shy, soft spoken, and lacked confident. Since joining Yi's we have seen our little girl come into her own! She started with no experience and would attend her instructional classes in the beginning and now has been invited to attend their Black Belt Course FULL TIME!!!! The instructors are AWESOME!!!!!! We could not be any happier! Great place and would recommend time after time!
