"I have seen my children grow from Little Kids to confident determined and respectful leaders among their peers. I am very proud of them and I would not have them at any other school. West Coast teaches kids to honor their families and themselves in all that they do. Two of my teens are Black Belts and my youngest will be testing for his in the next year!"
-Amy Copfer, mother of 3.
"I still remember the first time I met KJN Jason Cole. This 5 year old littl boy was standing at the front door when I got home holding this card for a free karate lesson and a free uniform. "DAD CAN WE PLEASE GO?" When we went to the school the first thing I noticed was a Korean Flag and in the past my experience with Taekwondo was not good so I thought one lesson and that would be it! Well I met this amazing young instructor, that most people would think is not capable of teaching as well as he does. By the end of the first lesson I was sold. That little boy joined and now 5 years later my my wife, myself, and my three children are enrolled. My youngest is about to graduate the Little Dragons. My 7 year old daughter is a Brown Belt and is becoming a great performer. My wife and I just tested for Black Belt and my now 10 year old little boy will test for his in 3 months. This is an enviornment for the family"
"Due to the excellent instruction at West Coast (Strictness with heart) watching my 3 grandchildren grow through their experience has been fascinating. They have learned among many other things 1)how to follow multiple instructions at once. 2) Pride in accomplishment. 3) A willingness to take critisism and learn from it. Amazing leadership qualities, kindness, strength, humor, and the ability to see failure as a challenge to be overcome on the path towards empowerment and not defeat."

"While encouraging my child to try hard at every class he told me "Mom, don't you know that Martial Arts isn't about being better than others in class, it's about being better than yourself and challenging yourself.!" Also the cordination and improvment of gross motor skills is priceless!"
