I started Thai Kickboxing a little over 2 months ago at Seattle Tae Kwan Do and I love it. Master Richards is always hyped up and motivating which I like cause it pushes me to try to go beyond my limits. I also like that the higher belt ranked students are always helpful with technique and motivation too.

This martial arts school is a rare find! Its a Small business around for years that truely wants your child to succeed and be in every aspect if life. They treat your family like you're part of their family immediately, from the moment you walk in. They have strong values such as respect and patients that stretch to their teaching in class.

They've got classes for the whole family too! Kick boxing is a fun and non intimidating class with a group of "average" people, not a bunch of gym "lunks" would make a fun and healthy date night for mom and dad!

Overall its one of the best environments to put your whole family in. Come here FIRST!

This is such a wonderful place! My nephew has joined the kick boxing class and he is doing amazing, he just got his yellow belt! :) It is such a joy to see him blossom and grow, feeling more secure in himself. I have to give a huge Thank You to our cousin for bringing us here and introducing us to Master Richards and also, a huge Thank You to Master Richards for reaching out to my nephew, building him up and encouraging him. Who knows, one of these days I might be able to join in the fun. lol

The father of my child and fiance attended this school earning his black belt. Every single day the virtues he learned at this school are applied to our life and relationship.
Here is a message I sent thanking Grand Master Richards for everything he taught my man, which was so far beyond martial arts!

"Yes, but you taught my Connor to use his heart, I must formally thank you for that, you helped mold Connor into the man he is today. His discipline and drive is that of a hero, your school helped him learn that and learn to apply it to life! I must say I won the husband lottery ♡"

"I hope you know you taught him far more than martial arts!"

Grand Master Richards and his employees have so many important lessons to teach our next generation, I would strongly suggest sending your child of any age or circumstance to this school to learn discipline, hard work, and self worth.

My grandson has an amazing time there, while learning how to have control of his body. It gives him an outlet for his excess energy and a way to focus it for his own good. Patient and kind instructors and Masters.

Wow. What an amazing school. Every moment I was enrolled here I felt as if I was apart of a family and still do. Grand master Richards is a great man. Very involved in the community. I love this school. My current masters are old students of master Richards and this school. If I was looking for a school to enroll in that was with in a 30 mile radius. This is my first and only choice

Your New Family Activity: Martial Arts

April 2nd is Family Day, and it’s the ideal time to talk about how to find family activities. If
you have kids of different ages, then you know how challenging it can be to find things to do
as a group. What excites your 10-year-old daughter is likely to bore your 7-year-old son – and
vice versa.

There’s one exception that we know of – and that’s taking martial arts classes! Studying the
martial arts is fun for people of all ages. It’s a great way to learn something new, get in
shape, and discover common ground with the people who matter most to you. Here are some
of the best reasons to study martial arts as a family.

#1: Making Exercise a Priority is Good for Everyone
People with kids sometimes struggle to make time in their busy schedules for exercise. And, a
lot of kids would be content to spend their days sitting in front of a video game or television.
The solution? Signing the whole family up to study martial arts! As parents, you’ll be setting a
good example by practicing what you preach about exercise. Kids will have a chance to burn
off some of the excess energy they have, and the whole family can improve their health by
getting regular workouts.

#2: Finding Common Ground Will Bring You Closer
When you do things together as a family, you build strong bonds that bring you closer. Even
though you and your kids will be in separate classes, we think martial arts still qualifies as a
group activity because you’ll all be pursuing similar goals.
In your free time, you’ll be able to talk about what you’ve learned. You may decide to
practice together as a family – and you can attend competitions or go see the latest martial
arts movie together. These things can all help you find common ground with one another.

#3: Learning the Five Tenets Improves Interpersonal Relationships
The five tenets of martial arts are the core of what you’ll learn in class – and they go far
beyond the physical movements you’ll be working to master. In fact, practicing self-control,
courtesy, and persistence will help you in every area of your life.
Families who study martial arts together find that their ability to focus on what’s important
improves as a result. You’ll all learn to be aware of each other’s needs and to respect one
another. Those are important lessons for kids, siblings, and parents.

#4: Studying Martial Arts is Fun
Anything you’re going to do as a family should be fun – and martial arts classes are! A good
martial arts class is a social event combined with a great workout. You’ll get a boost of feelgood
hormones after class and the whole family will be smiling.
Kids who might balk at doing a “boring” family activity will look forward to learning how to
execute perfects kicks and punches or break a board with their fist. You won’t have to worry
about whether the whole family will enjoy studying martial arts – they will!

Conclusion
Studying martial arts as a family can help you come together across the generations – and it’s
a great way to carve some family time out of your busy lives.
