LISTEN TO WHAT OUR HAPPY PARENTS ARE SAYING
Oh my goodness! I am a student at Impact Martial Arts, and I always am grateful for my decision. I have recently been chosen to train to be an assistant instructor, and I am now taking the classes. Impact instructors are very supportive, and understanding. I can't explain how thankful I am to have a home away from home. I definitely recommend Impact.
My husband has wanted to learn Taekwondo for some time & I decided to sign him up for classes as a gift. It took me a very long time to find a school that fit. Eventually we found Impact Martial Arts & haven't looked back! I eventually joined the adult class as well (something I NEVER thought I would be doing). What I once was afraid to do is now something I look forward to every day!
This school is by far the best in the area. They teach the actual art of Taekwondo & not just some martial arts fitness class. We've both gained flexibility, confidence, & balance. The classes are interesting, fun and just an overall great learning environment.
We love the instructors! The instructors are knowledgeable, amazing, fun & supportive. They answer all of our questions and teach in a way that makes sense to each individual person. If you are looking for a great Martial Arts school in Somerset County, give Impact Martial Arts a try. You won't regret it!
They have a wonderful program that starts around age 4, and continues through to whatever degree of black belt they choose to study for. This school teaches self discipline, courage, determination and dedication and helps to mold your child in to a strong willed and hard working adult. We love the school and all the instructors that help teach our children and make sure they get the best quality instruction that can be given. We love our Impact family!!
