My two kids love training at Master West’s Taekwondo Academy. It is great for developing leadership skills and building self confidence and discipline. I would highly recommend this academy.

Master Wests Karate - Annlin

Master West’s Karate Academy teaches kids not just karate, but also other important life skills! My daughter thoroughly enjoys each class and looks forward to learning new skills with her friends. I highly recommend Master West’s Karate Academy for all parents – thank you Master West for your patience, time and commitment to our children.

Master Wests Karate - Moreleta Park

My son loves it here, we don’t miss a class! He adores his coach and Master. I am so amazed by the improvement in my son’s physical development and motor skills, and the better ratings his kindergarten report cards also notes it. But what they are teaching him goes far beyond the great physical skills. The improvement in his discipline, following of instructions and listening skills is also remarkable. I am so confident that I always choose the option to pay for the year in advance, and it comes with a considerable discount. I will never regret my decision of enrolling my son when here when he was 3. And I look forward to the rest of the journey with them. I can highly recommend Master West’s Karate Wierda Park. Thank you guys for the positive impact on Mike’s life.
