The decision to enrol my 2 kids in karate was born from a desire for them to learn focus, commitment and responsibility and to build confidence. Mike and the team at Firestorm have delivered this and more. The classes are led by highly skilled, inspirational teachers and are really well structured, with a great balance of fun, skills training and guidance on dealing with challenging situations and being the best you can be. The program offering is diverse and cost efficient. The kids and I look forward to going to the dojo and are proud to be part of the Firestorm family.
Hello just a short note to thank you Kyoshi Mike for your Karate program, that my son has being attending at Park Orchards Primary School. My son seems to enjoy your program and I feel my son is concentrating a lot more since he has started your Karate program. I am very pleased with your teachings and the growth I have witnessed in my son. He is developing some great physical and life skills.
My son Richard has been training with Kyoshi Mike and other instructors for about five years. I have been consistently impressed with the high level of advice on life skills (eg ‘honour, responsibility, respect’) that make up part of the training, plus of course the physical skills. I think Kyoshi Mike has a great way with kids and strikes an excellent balance between discipline and good-natured banter, which helps create a friendly, non-threatening atmosphere. This has fostered Richard’s growth and development in a really positive way.
My children have been members of Firestorm Martial Arts Zen Do Kai kidz karate for many years. It has without a doubt changed their lives. Under guidance and instruction from Kyoshi Mike Quin, it has given them the ability to handle life changes and uncertainties with strength and confidence. Aside from the physical and fitness benefits, ZDK has been invaluable in teaching focus, discipline and determination, and in decision making and team work. Firestorm Martial Arts is orientated around family and friends and is like our second home. It has become an integral part of our lives. Definitely on the highly recommended list.
