What do people say about Family TaeKwon-Do and Fitness Center and the instructors?

Dear Master McCarthy, 
I was tired of the same old boring gym routine.  Martial Arts is something I always wanted to try so I finally came in in to do your introductory lesson.  Your Program Director was very friendly and helpful.  She explained everything in detail so I knew exactly what to expect from your school.  After the introductory lesson I made a smooth transition into your adult program and love it.  The adult classes are great; I love the way you combine the ground techniques with the TaeKwon-Do.  Your instructors are very helpful and motivational.  My only regret is not calling sooner!
Thank you - Chris

Master McCarthy,
Just a quick note to let you know how much I enjoy being a part of your school.  I have learned so much and feel that I will continue to learn.  I feel very at home at Family TaeKwon-Do, and quite honestly, it is one of my favorite places.  I appreciate all that you do for the school, your students, and what you do for me.  I am thoroughly enjoying myself and have noticed a rise in my concentration level and confidence.  Thank you for doing such a great job and giving 110% all the time.
Thank you - Becky

Dear Master McCarthy,
I enrolled my son at Family TaeKwon-Do in June.  Right away I noticed the gift Mr. Austin has in his communication with children and adults.  My son is extremely shy, and within seconds, Mr. Austin set him at ease.  He creates a personalized program for each student, exhibiting care and courtesy, while maintaining professionalism and mutual respect.  I am a teacher, and I see many teachers who are not as skilled in their communication with children as Mr. Austin.  He goes the extra mile in making the facility a warm and comfortable place for the students to come.

I would also like to commend your entire staff, which extends many of these attributes.  I see them call the children by name, and give personalized instruction.  The discipline, manners, and values taught in conjunction with the physical abilities learned are invaluable in today's society.  You have created a wonderful lifestyle and community for the students, which extends into the home (random acts of kindness, reading program, "yes sir", etc.)  In addition, I have watched other children help instruct the classes, and they appear so at ease and confident.  This is phenomenal!  You are truly changing lives and teaching lifelong skills that will give them the advantage in the classroom and later in their professional lives.

Thank you for creating the Family TaeKwon-Do and Fitness center, and my thanks go to Mr. Austin for mastering the art of commanding respect, teaching discipline, and giving kindness and care.  This balance is difficult to achieve and maintain.
With genuine thanks and gratitude - Wendy

Mr. McCarthy, 
I appreciate your help and support in advancing me to my next level of black belt.  It is a great honor testing under you as well as training and working under Mr. Mike.  I see a lot of you in him.  That's what makes this such a great organization (family). 
Sincerely yours - George

Master McCarthy,
Since my family joined your school my kids have done a 180!  They are listening and paying attention better at school.  Their grades have improved to all A's and B's.  I've lost weight and my wife has never been happier.  Thank you so much for everything you do, you've really changed our lives. 
Thank you - Chris

Dear Master McCarthy, 
Just a quick note to tell you how much we appreciate your instructor's who help train the lower belt ranks.  They are patient, very positive, clear with instructions and give a lot of great suggestions.  They always seem to make the students feel proud of themselves.  You really have a great school and an excellent group of instructors.  Thank you so much. 
Sincerely - Cathleen
