I wish there were more stars. there just aren't enough stars to review the quality of people, instruction, students and classes at Next Step Martial Arts. I began my journey about 2 1/2 years ago when I came into the studio, sat on the mat with Master Jay and discussed the reasons I wanted to take taekwondo . I have met and surpassed every single one of them! I'm probably one of the oldest if not the oldest students there , but I can tell you I feel better now that I have felt in my 20s 30s 40s 50s and on. It's been a rigorous journey for me but I was willing to do the work. Master Jay and all the instructors are just an incredible group of individuals . And I feel my success has really been , as the name Next Step Martial Arts implies, one step at a time . All the classes are different, and I learn something from each one of them . I have never looked back, have no regrets, and I'm sure I never well !

My daughter, Kenzie, has just signed up for camp this year. She is five years old. From the moment you walk in the door you are met with smiling, friendly, and respectful staff. I am proud to say that my "shy in front of others" child is blossoming in this well rounded environment. She asks to go back day after day. I have also seen her manners and respect towards others improve too. Thank you for helping her become more well rounded.

Perseverance, dedication, and respect are all words that characterize Next Step! Not only does the staff at Next Step possess these qualities, they instill them in their students through engaging activities and self-defense techniques. Master Jay has devoted his life to his passion of teaching Tae Kwon Do! His perseverance to follow his dream and his dedication to his students are beyond what you will find anywhere else! My daughter has finally become old enough to attend summer camp, and within the first week, she was coming home and explaining to her father and me about a concept of respect that she was taught! She thoroughly enjoys her time at Nextstep, and I am pleased because she is learning about qualities that we just don't see in everyday society anymore! I know that we will continue to see her skills transform and her respect towards others increase! These are life skills that all kids should be taught! Thank you, Master Jay and staff!

Next step is great. I signed my two young girls up last October, both a bit reluctant to try it, but after just one class they were hooked and have consistently enjoyed both the curriculum and the wonderful teachers and staff since. Great extra activities, family oriented, and just a fantastic place to take the girls to.

I signed my five year old up for Taekwondo classes. We were immediately impressed with the responsiveness of the instructors. To acclimate the children before they start, they have private lessons with each instructor. This helped ease my son's nervousness when he started a group class the next week. All instructors know my son by name and have an amazing way of interacting with the children. Master Jay, Cameron, George and Will are all very patient and have helped boost my son's confidence. One time I accidentally mixed up the class schedule and arrived at the studio when no class was in session. Master Will graciously offered a private 10-minute lesson for my son even though it was my mistake and we were not expecting such a generous offer. Their flexible class schedules also make it very easy to find times to get to class each week. We love Next Step!

I don't know where to begin to say how much I love this place. I started out just coming to taekwondo classes for excercise on my weight loss journey (95 pounds now). I think I was at a 45 loss when I started! Anyhow it then became something else for me, more than just excercise. My husband says at the age of 50 I'm like a caterpillar blooming. And everyone I meet taking class there is pretty darn awesome and the staff is top notch! I don't think I can do without Taekwondo in my life now. I would recommend this to all ages.

The most amazing opportunity for kids to learn disipline, self defense and just have fun being active kids. I love what master so and his team have done for the community and helping teach our kids respect in a positive way. I love the events, parents nights out, summer camp, after school activities and everything they do. As a parent of a kiddo with adhd this is a fantastic way for my son to get his energy out and be himself. Thanks next step martial arts we need more positive influences like you guys in the world!!

Character Development Program

Character Development Program

We are excited to introduce our brand new character development program for all students called Superstar 4 Life. Every season (Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter), we will have a specific theme we will be covering for a 12 week period. You will receive a Superstar 4 Life Mission worksheet. This handout is a great tool for educating yourself and your family on essential life skills. More importantly, these missions will help your child take the fantastic lessons our instructors teach in the classroom and use them in the real world.

Each Superstar 4 Life handout has at least 15 missions that your child can do. Each one of these missions are specifically designed to helping students develop positive life changing habits of success. Students will earn points for each mission they accomplish, making it both challenging and fun. When students turn in their Superstar 4 Life Missions two weeks prior to Graduation they will be eligible to earn special bronze, silver or gold SuperStar 4 Life belt stripes, a limited edition SuperStar 4 Life wristband and if they earn a minimum of 50 points they will receive an invitation for themselves and two of their closest friends to come to a VIP Pizza Party. Pretty cool, huh? Every season the missions will help enhance your child’s character in three main areas: Personal Development (both physically and mentally), Community Involvement (home, school, work, etc.) and Martial Arts Training. During each class our instructors will share a lesson that touches on one of these key areas. We encourage you to listen closely so you can think about it and how you can take immediate action by applying it to your life or your child’s life. If you are traveling with others in the car, having a meal together or just trying to come up with something to talk about, be sure to have a discussion about the life skill lesson and how it can help improve your life and the lives of those around you.

Remember, Leaders Are Readers! We highly recommend you and your child review the missions together in the morning and at night (breakfast and dinner usually work best) 2-3 times per week. Your participation will help make a monumental impact on your child and the future of their success. This is an activity that is fun for the whole family and will help bring everyone closer together.

See you on the mat,

NEXTStep Martial Arts
