I have been sending my 12 year old son to TCK MMA and to Senei Jadi Tention for four years. I highly reccomend them. My son is very active in martial arts and has been active in several dojos. I beleive this is the best dojo in the Greater New York area. It is an excellent place to learn martial arts skills and techniques and one of the best endurance workouts for any kid or adult. Equally important is that Sensei Tention is very good at teaching the kids life lessons from the moment they walk in the door. Learning respect, discipine, humility and confidence are very key in Sensei's teaching. As a parent, I greatly appreicate his talks with the kids on how to be a good person in all aspects of life. I personally have also taken classes at TCK. As a busy mom of two, and a non-martial artist, I still like to remain active and keep fit. When I go to TCK it feels lilke family and I get a great workout in. They consider each individual persons physical ability and try to push you just a little further beyond where you are comfortable to go. It is a very encouraging environment and whether you are 5 or 85, there's a great workout in there for everyone, whether you are a martial artist or just a person wishing to keep in decent shape. It is a very collaborative, warm and friendly place. Definitely worth checking this place out and I bet you go back!
This school is great, if you are looking to toughing up your child. We live in a complex world of hate and discrimination. Even within our own minority groups. I wanted my nephews to be confident and discipline. They have been in this school 8 weeks and they are more confident in themselves. They have better self -esteem. We as todays' parents and extended family tend to cuddle our children. When we try to correct or discipline them, we are bond by law. Children are taught about abuse and reporting abuse but who is teaching them about respect and discipline. I am talking about discipline of mind and body. I know I am not around them enough and mom and dad have crazy schedules. I don't expect them to feed and support my nephews emotionally, that our jobs. I expect them to teach them self-discipline, self defense and respect. They are rough and tough but fair and honestly good hearted. That is the world our children live in. It's not personal, its' business
I first met Sensei Jadi Tention 12 years ago, when my then 5 year old son had the opportunity to attend one of his seminars. It quickly became clear that Sensei Jadi not only had great knowledge of the martial arts but an even greater ability to teach his knowledge to students of all ages. We live 250 miles from TCK, which has forced us to attend various martial arts schools over the years. Unfortunately, none compare to the instruction my boys receive at TCK. I take every opportunity possible to drive my boys to TCK. There they are sure to work hard, get quality training and true traditional martial arts instruction. Sensei Jadi always makes us feel welcomed and part of the TCK family. He continues to be a role model for my boys, teaching them, motivating them and molding them. I recommend TCK to anyone interested in quality martial arts training.
