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.

As a mom of 2 kiddos in Martial Arts I LOVE that they offer something for me as well. I've been taking kickboxing for 7 months now and I have never felt more fit! The class is so fun, and the instructors are amazing! I cant recommend it enough!

NEXTStep has been an incredible blessing. We have been going to TWD for my daughter Elly for a while and she has flourished and has an increase in confidence and discipline. I have recently joined the kickboxing classes and I am so excited to be part of the family in a direct way myself. I am impressed with all the staff which is like a second family but I am equally impressed with the accountability and life lessons learned. I had a misconception of what kickboxing would and entail and I am very happy to have tried it and found out how fun, exciting and due-able it is for someone with back issues and 50! I am looking forward to achieving a healthy lifestyle with my Next Step family. I honestly, can't say enough about the quality, dedication and support of Master Jay and everyone involved in NEXTStep!

My daughter has been going to NEXT Step Martial Arts for almost a year now. When we first started I wasn’t sure teaching her to kick would be worth the time and money involved. I can easily and gladly say that I was wrong. They teach so much more here, they learn respect, discipline and my daughter has gain so much confidence since starting at NEXT Step Martial Arts. Taekwondo has also helped allot with her school work, memory and focus has improved so much over the past year. I believe it’s not just the taekwondo classes that’s teaching her this it’s the
staff, probably better to say the family. Every employee knows everyone’s name and are genially happy to see you. They make everyone feel welcome and have become a huge part in my daughter’s life.

The ability is no longer in my body but still in my mind
Ever since I started martial arts it has been one of my biggest passions. I would go in every single day and do multiple classes a night. When I did summer camp when I was about 14, I was there for 13 hours straight and never skip a beat. To this day I still believe that it was the best time of my life. When I started to work there, it took me a little while to catch on but a still loved it just as much. When I started to get sick, I kept pushing through classes but I would be very ill afterwards and would have to recover for days. It made me incredibly frustrated when had to start cancelling my classes or having someone take my shift for the night. But nonetheless, I knew I had to do it for my own sake. When my body started to deteriorate, a terrible thought crossed my mind. Was I ever going to be able to go back to doing martial arts? I spent so much time trying to rehabilitate myself but it was always leveled out with a long period of sickness. I was so angry with myself because I couldn’t kick anymore. I couldn’t even stand on one leg for more than a few seconds.
I hated my body because I had lost so many years of hard work and dedication. I didn’t even want to show my face in the studio because I thought I would be an embarrassment to my co-workers, myself, the students, and anyone who saw me. It took me many many months to realize that I don’t need the ability to kick at 180 degrees or do thousands of punches to consider myself a talented martial artist. Even though the ability might not be in my body anymore (or at least for the time being), it is still very much in my mind. My knowledge of martial arts is just as important as the physical aspect of training. It took me a very long time to figure that out for myself, but I could not be more grateful that I finally did.
Because of the mental training that I went through with the help of my instructors, I can still consider myself a martial artist, despite what my body is capable of.

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!

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 !
