Customer Reviews

My son has multiple disabilities that keep him from playing team sports. We researched martial arts to find him a good outlet for fun and physical exercise and discovered Talamantez Karate. I was very pleased to see how well they treated my son even though he was “different” than the average child. Their focus on self-confidence and leadership was a bonus that I hadn’t expected, but love about this school. They give the children “homework” which is just simple exercises to do at home to continue to build up strength. Anyone who has done a physical skill like this knows that forming such good life habits pays off into adulthood even if you don’t keep with it forever. There was an up front fee, but over all, the expense is not much more than any other lessons I have done in my life (music, dance, or whatever). The classes are mixed ages and somewhat mixed skill level, but I like this because the children are taught to accept each other as they are while all striving to continue to improve.  I like this school because it focuses on life long skills of character, fitness, goal-setting, and confidence. Everyone is friendly and happy to help you.

My five year old is enrolled at Talamantez Karate and always has positive experiences. I personally like Talamantez Karate School as it’s focus is respect, self-discipline and confidence. My daughter is not one to be shy but this school really has given her confidence. She loves to participate ( a little too much) and is never made to feel bad if she does not give the right answer. All the instructors are always positive and always encouraging the children to do their best. My daughter is always excited to attend karate and leaves with an amazing attitude. I did not want my child to attend outside competitions so this school fit well for us. It has only been a few months for us but she has already learned so much. A huge thank you to all the instructors whom are so helpful and do really care for your child’s success. Above all respect, discipline and confidence.

Highly recommend! Great for the entire family. This is both of my boys first time to take karate lessons and they have been going for 2 months now. The instructors are positive and the structure of the boys learning has been beneficial both physically and mentally. All while they are having fun in a supportive and encouraging environment.

I have been with Master Talamantez for 13 years. I have enjoyed working with Master T and have fun in every class. Each day I look forward to the Karate classes as well as Shuri class. He has a unique way of teaching all ages. He teaches respect, goal setting, and discipline. Master Talamantez has a wealth of knowledge in the martial arts, and I highly recommend Talamantez Karate. His Dojo is like one big family and I treasure the time I am able to train with him. I had the pleasure of participating in the ceremony to award our 2 newest members their first belts. It was a joy to see them having so much fun.

What started out as self defense training for myself and 17 year old daughter is now four of my family members going to Talamantez Karate for self defense, karate and black belt club. We really like the instructors and the family and encouraging but challenging environment. It is a great place to learn self defense, karate forms and have some fun. It’s a workout but the result is losing weight and get all the health benefits of focused exercise. I’ve lost 30 pounds! Doesn’t matter your age or ability or fitness level, everyone is welcome. I didn’t know anything about self defense or karate before I started. You’re there to learn and Master Talamantez will be patient and challenge you to improve. Our family really loves it!

We started Karate classes two weeks ago at Talamantez Karate. I am already starting to see a positive effect with my boys. Their doctor advised that karate will help with their ADHD. I can see why! My 14 yr old is more focused and comes home anxious to practice his karate instead of playing Fornite. I have noticed a big change in their explosive attitude that most children with ADHD have. They are learning to cope through the skills, learning to respect themselves as well as others.
