Our family has known the FSDC family and its leaders, Ms. Chris and Master Z for several years now. Both of our children are students of this dojo, our 13 year old is a Second Degree junior black belt, and our 8 year old is a brownbelt in Isshinryu Karate. We have watched our sons grow exponentially in their martial arts skills, and also in their overall personality development, under the guidance and positive influence of their Senseis. The reason our children have been so successful and reached this level is because of the sincerity, dedication and hard work of their teachers. They recognize their student’s potential early on, and steer their young minds in the right direction. This is evident from the large no. of students who have trained with them for a long period of time, and have evolved into becoming leaders and mentors in the dojo and in other areas of their life. The senseis’ immense and well-rounded knowledge in Martial arts is reflected in their teaching style. They demonstrate the most practical and effective use of every move and make it more meaningful for the students by giving the historical background, and explaining how it can be improvised to make it work in modern life. They do this based on the student’s ability to grasp without overwhelming them. They are very patient in dealing with students of all ages, from preschoolers to older adults. My sons always felt a deeper connection with their teachers, and they say that their senseis offer tips and techniques in a fun way which helps them to retain their skills for longer term. They offer advice on improvement to the students by first highlighting their strengths, and then commenting on one or two things that the student can work on. This positive reinforcement helps the students boosts their self-confidence which keeps them coming back for more. The dojo hosts a tournament every year, to help their students get acquainted to tournament settings and prepare them for regional and national tournaments. They make the tournaments fun for the younger children to get rid of any anxiety and fear from their minds, and guide them to present their best to the judges. FSDC is well respected and recognized in the community due to their charitable contributions and participation in Karate/Padded weapons demonstrations at community events. Come join our FSDC family and you will never want to leave. The Huang Family
