"This review is long overdue. We started 4 years ago when my son was 4. I really wanted him to learn coordination, focus, discipline, muscle/strength development, following direction, etc. We had tried jiu jitsu but it was to complex. We tried another kids’ dojo, but they were too strict and serious. Again, my son was only 4 and just wanted to have fun. He had attention issues and definitely could NOT focus for an hour-long class. At the end of hour class the teacher was very discouraging about my son’s lack of concentration/ability, etc. I pretty much gave up until a friend recommended Kyoshi and Crescent Moon Karate. On the first day I made a million apologies to Kyoshi for my son in advance and told him I understood if it wasn’t a fit and explained that my son had issues paying attention. Kyoshi didn’t seem fazed at all. He said if the curriculum was age- appropriate, the kids would do great and enjoy it. And he was right! My son loves karate, Crescent Moon dojo and most of all Kyoshi! He really has an amazing talent and love for teaching kids (especially the ones with extra struggles) and the patience of a SAINT! He’s even an inspiration to me as a parent to meet my kid where he is to help him flourish. My son’s coordination, focus and memory has come so far since we began. And he loves it. There’s plenty of classes to fit into anyone’s busy schedule and all the instructors there are trained by Kyoshi and are great!"
"The newest transformation I've noticed in my daughter is in her confidence! She used to hate being the only girl in class, be timid when she was called on and it felt like she was holding back! Well this girl rises her hand wanting to be first now, shows the boys how it's done when she's the only girl in class and when her BFF quit because it got too hard she kept going!! Thank you Kyoshi. You have been my partner in guiding her. We love our CMK family!!!"
"Our 7-year-old son joined the dojo in the fall of . Based on proximity to our home and the effusive reviews, we chose to begin classes with Kyoshi Torres. I could not imagine then how vital his leadership and genuine joy for his art would become in our son’s and our lives. His devotion and focus is contagious along with his spot on sense of humor and fun. Unmistakably one of the best decisions we have made to date for our child. He finds inspiration and motivation to participate more fully in our home and at school since beginning his training with Crescent Moon. He has always been an enthusiastic participant, but it is markedly apparent that by following Kyoshi’s example he has a deeper understanding of what it means to bring your best efforts to any task or situation and is developing a sense of personal responsibility."
"We love Crescent Moon Karate . Kyoshi Torres is high energy and is great with the kids. The focus is discipline and respect, not only in class but at home too. In order to test for a new belt rank, student have to have their parent(s) approval, meaning they are doing their chores/tasks at home . This has made my daughter more self sufficient and has instilled confidence and self discipline in her.She has created a daily checklist for herself including reading, writing, math and practicing karate and always tries to help around the house. This program makes learning fun and kids pick up essential skills like self defense and respect for one another. We have been going for a year and a half and we highly recommend it!"
"I highly recommend Crescent Moon. My six-year-old niece has been taking classes at Crescent Moon since January. Kyoshi and the other teachers lead with a balance of rigor and patience. My niece has been learning and training at her own pace. Her form and skills are very impressive for such a young girl. The goal of the school is self-defense training, but also self-confidence, respect and maturity. I love supporting my niece in this. It's a great school."
