Lou Stastny

“Nice place very friendly and they take great patience with their students.”

Apollonia Ponticiello

Our daughter has now been going to TBK for almost a year and loves it! She’s progressed to Level 1 since starting. And it’s all to the credit of the studio and the Masters, other instructors (shout out to Ms Lola) and staff. Besides the obvious karate instruction the character growth, respect and personal development taught and learned has been impressive. In addition to karate classes there is always something FUN like drop off summer Fridays and parent date night. Overall we’re very happy and we would highly recommend TBK!

Mr White

“I just wanted to mention that both my son; 8 year old, and my daughter 6 year old came to True Balance Karate a little over a year ago, didn't know anything about karate, and the true balance team has been so helpful in introducing them to karate, keeping them motivated by karate and really you know kind of guiding them in the proper direction. They enjoy it, they look forward to it and as parents we really feel like the team here is really molding our children well.”
