    I first heard good things about Kick Start Martial Arts from a parent at my daughter's school. We called them as an inside option when my daughter's birthday pool party wasn't going to happen because of the rain. They took us with only 2 days notice, and she had the best and most fun birthday party there. All the kids had a great time doing karate. She liked it so much she wanted to do summer camp there, and so we signed up for the last week of camp. She had such a great experience, she wanted to do camp for another week. Now she wants to sign up for lessons in the fall. Master Beaty and the staff are extremely nice and skilled teachers. My daughter learned martial arts, as well as safety techniques, and they also had a fire safety puppet show. I love how there were posts on the Facebook page with photos and videos of the kids doing the various activities everyday. She came home everyday talking excitedly about it and went to sleep very easily each night! Thanks, Master Beaty!

    After being at Kickstart for a year we decided to enroll our son in summer camp. We went for two weeks. Due to the rain the camp was held mostly indoors. However the camp was fun and educational! We had a great time and will definitely come back next year! Thank you Sa Bo Nim Beaty!

    Fantastic Summer Camp

    This was my 6 year old's favorite camp this summer. Small-ish group with lots of supervisors, fun games and activities that got him excited about martial arts, and he got really excited about "extras" like the tshirt and pizza day. And I enjoyed seeing the kids in action at the demonstration on the last day.

    I'm the guardian of my 6-year-old nephew who exceeds expectations academically. However, he remains at the 'slow down" level on the conduct scale. I enrolled him in kick start to help augment his academics with a fitness activity that stresses discipline and respect among other things. From day-one Mr. Beatty knew his name among a sea of students, and somehow managed to coach him against his newbie skills whilst not slowing down the momentum of the class of existing students. In the 6 weeks we've been enrolled, there's been a marked difference in my nephew. He still has to slow down some, but far less frequent. I'm also told by his teacher that she allows him to help some of the struggling students, which he has developed a passion for. This month, he was named 'Student of the Month,' which factors academic achievement AND behavior! I'm so thankful for Kick Start. I cry sometimes watching my nephew with the kids, but mostly, I feel a sense of peace that he's in the right place!

    My son started classes at Kick Start this past summer. He is showing a focus and engagement that he was previously lacking. I appreciate the way that Mr. Beatty is tough yet loving with the kids. He's firm and he teaches real skills. The sparring classes on Friday nights are the coolest!

    Summer Camp of Fun at Kick Start Martial Arts
    corey2302 (2 reviews)
    10/24/2016

    My son attended a summer camp session at Kick Start and had a really great time. He has attended other summer camps in the past and expressed that Kick Start was one of the best summer camps because of the fun activities and smaller camp size. At some of the other camps he attended in the past often there are a large number of kids and he has to do a lot of waiting around, so he enjoyed the smaller camp size which allowed for more activity time and less wait time. At Kick Start Martial Arts Camp the kids not only have fun, but also they learn life long skills such as self defense and how to properly protect themselves from strangers. At the end of the camp the kids showcased their learning for parents through a performance demonstration that allowed them to show how they will take precautions to prevent themselves from being harmed by strangers. I was highly impressed. This camp was a great investment. My child had fun learning and engaging in the camps activities, and he learned how to handle himself in real life situations if he encounters strangers that attempt to harm him. I highly recommend Kick Start Martial Arts Camp!

    I am a student at Kick Start Martial Arts and have been for about three years now. During this time I've spent with my instructors and fellow students I've learned a lot about respect and being my best self. I've volunteered at the majority of Mr. Beaty's summer camps and each time the younger kids seem to have a great time while learning about respect and discipline. I'd recommend Kick Start Martial Arts to anyone looking for a chance to train in martial arts and learn more about self-discipline.

    Our son has been a student at Kick Start Martial Arts for 6 months and we've been very impressed with the school. The classes are informative and engaging, and even the games they play offer lessons to improve in martial arts and life. The parents night out events are equally impressive; at the end of the evening, our son doesn't want to leave. In all encounters, Beatty is polite but firm. He explains directions and expectations, doesn't waiver in his commitment to bettering the students, and gives them discipline they typically don't experience in school or other athletic endeavors. All & all, it's a very good operation and I highly recommend it.

    Great Place for Adults
    Rashard (1 review)

    Master Renard Beaty's Karate studio is a great place for adults. I have been studying about 6 months and my body is doing things I never imagined it could do. Do what he says 15-20mins a day and your life will not be the same. The physical conditioning is fun and does make life more enjoyable, however the mental conditioning the art provides increases awareness. To an almost scary degree. I have become so much more aware of how the actions of others impact me and how my actions impact them thus improving my relationships. Some schools of thought call it mindfulness. The focus I have developed has helped me to do better when interviewing for jobs. The awareness has helped me to foresee when an opportunity may or may not be a good choice. The training also focuses on breathing and flexibility. The instructors are very safety conscious. The stretches have me kicking higher and faster than I could imagine. I also chose Kick start because of the short class times for beginner students. Master Beaty requires all of his students to have a can-do attitude. When I saw his advance students he simply said "keep coming". There is not an air of elite-ism dividing beginners from those who have been in the program a while. You can also smell respect in the air among old and young. And that makes learning enjoyable and class something to look forward to.

    We are so very pleased with Kick Start. Our son first met Mr. Beaty during a demo at an after school program. He began to teach a small class there weekly and our son was hooked. We started Kick Start six months ago as a Little Ninja, and attended two incredible weeks of summer camp. Will is thrilled with his progress and for each power stripe and belt he earns. We are very happy with the classes, instructors and invaluable life lessons and values he is learning. We are happy to recommend Master Beaty and Kick Start!

    The Parents Night Out experience was fantastic! Well staffed, well organized, physical activities and games and a movie! Pizza and a drink for $5 extra. The only problem - it didn't last long enough :-)...only 5 childless hours :-(, but seriously, our daughter loved it. Safe and trusted environment!

    My 8-year old daughter has been a student of Mr. Beaty's for about 6 months. As with ballet, gymnastics, chess, swimming, etc., I fully expected her to lose interest within a few weeks, But, to my surprise and delight, this has become one of her favorite activities! While Mr. Beaty is a stern, no-nonsense, strict instructor, parents of KSMA understand that he has his students' best interest at heart. My daughter's transformation from a shy little girl to a powerhouse in the making is unmistakable. I recommend new parents schedule an observation class to check out the students in action. You won't regret the time spent. Tang Soo Do!
