Mr. Sidner says…

“The one word I would use to sum up what National Karate martial arts training has done for me would be confidence. I spent much of my childhood shying away from pressure of any kind, but through my training I learned to master my fears so they would not control me. That is a lesson I have carried with me my entire life!The most rewarding thing about teaching for me is getting to see my students benefit from this training in many of the same ways I know I have. I believe God put me on this earth to be a teacher and every time I witness a student overcome an obstacle in their life because of this training that believe is confirmed!”
