  2. They just want you to do your best.

    Karate has taught me to work really hard and to not feel intimidated by what people think of you. At karate, no one judges you for how perfect you are doing it, they just want you to do your best.…Read More

  3. I love how IBBA is a judgment-free zone.

    I love the friendly and helpful community that has developed in the five years that I have been here from the instructors to my friends who also take part in IBBA. I love how IBBA is a judgment-free zone and you are free to enjoy karate no matter what you look like or act like. I love how IBBA has tons of equipment to help us on our journey to black belt.…Read More

  4. I enjoyed learning discipline and self-control

    All of the favorite things I have learned in karate have not been about karate itself, but rather the character lessons I have been taught. See, I have been fortunate enough to never need to seriously defend myself against an attacker in my lifetime, but I may have if the skills I learned from karate had not been taught. The number one thing I enjoyed having learned was discipline and self-control…Read More

  6. Karate helped me be successful in other areas of my life.

    Besides karate, the teachers also taught me respect, patience, perseverance an gave me encouragement. I learned honesty, gratitude, integrity and much more. These skills helped me be a better person and helped me achieve other goals. The teachers I have had at IBBA are good role models and have good personalities - they practice what they preach and help you understand what you are learning. They …Read More

  8. “This is future-changing. You need to be here.”

    I took my son in to try karate for a 10 class trial when he was 5 years old. I watched a couple classes and was impressed with the instructor. Then, probably on his third class, I got this overwhelming feeling that washed over me that seemed to say "this is important. Pay attention. You need to be here". It was a weird feeling, and I shook it off. Then on probably his fourth class I got that feel…Read More

  9. If it wasn’t for Mr B and the rest of the instructors…

    My bad temper and lack of patience has caused me to want to walk away from the Dojo a couple of times over the past few years and if wasn't for Mr B and the rest of the instructors at Kaizen, I most certainly would not have returned.  It ended up being a great ride and I am looking forward to training for 2nd degree after the extravaganza. Thanks for all your support, David…Read More

  10. IBBA has it down to a science

    The instructors clearly love the kids and love their jobs which was evident by their obvious rapport with students and parents, as I watch them greet each family upon arrival. A stellar balance between demanding respect and playful joking around sets the stage for expected good behavior in a completely non-threatening manner. From the time class begins til the time it ends, each child is expected …Read More
