Read What Others Are Saying About Their Experience With Us:

We put our son Carl into Master Jason's kid's program because we wanted to help him develop self-confidence and grow stronger inwardly and outwardly as a young person. Carl was very shy and kind of hung back because it just seemed like he doubted himself. When we looked around, we were looking for something that was going to challenge Carl yet help him build his confidence in himself to use forever. The greatest thing is that Master Jason actually sat down with us in the beginning to find out what we wanted to have Carl gain and then went over the steps he would be taking to help him. As a Doctor, this is something I thought was only in the medical field. But, this was amazing because we got to know Master Jason and he got to know our family instead of us just being another number. Master Jason's program touches on each of the things that individually a young student needs help with. The character building program that went along with practical skills of self-defense is amazing to watch the students get skills they can use outside of the martial arts school.

-Summer Youker

I was looking for a practical self-defense training that met the needs of the modern world we live in today. I wanted to know the true skill of defending myself and not just a bunch of memorized patterns or techniques. I wanted to find out how to handle any situation instinctively and immediately that was thrown at me. Master Jason's Civilian Combatives Tactical Self-Defense Program along with the stand-up striking self-defense skills in his MUAY THAI Kickboxing program did that and so much more. We cover everything from being assaulted with weapons and no weapons, power and vital target striking, grappling, and multiple attackers. I get to train in all of this in one place which makes it convenient. Not only is the self-defense training modern, but the psychological aspects of what he teaches with the traditional side of samurai training fits perfectly with today's needs. We learn so much more than just kicking and punching. We get to learn something valuable we can use in all parts of our lives. For myself, I have used more of the mental and warrior spirit elements that I learned and stay out of any situation that would require me to fight. But, if I need to protect myself or my family, I have to skill set to do that.

-Kelly Hoofer

My husband and I checked out a number of different martial arts schools, but majority of them reminded me too much of the commercialized “cage-fighting” or UFC, and that is not what we want for our kids. My husband was adamant about looking into Folsom Martial Arts Center because we were referred to Folsom Martial Arts Center by one of my husband’s patients. The first thing that we immediately liked about Master Jason is how he teaches his students about the importance of having a successful education.

I really like how Master Jason took the time to meet with my husband and I so that we could discuss, as a family, the benefits and goals that we wanted our kids to gain through martial arts. Our meeting with Master Jason made me realize that he is unlike other instructors and this is not just like any other school.  I like that he’s not just interested in taking our money – I know that I can go to any school down the street, and they’ll put my kids in class, but they won’t take the time to really help my kids learn and grow both mentally and physically. Watching Master Jason teach class has shown me that he truly does care about honing his students’ minds and their martial arts skills.

What I found really appealing about Master Jason’s martial arts program is the way that he incorporates the mental strength and life-skills along with the physical, self-defense aspects of martial arts. I love how he combines the two and doesn’t just teach one over the other. Having Japanese ancestry, it was very important for my husband and I to find an instructor who emphasizes both the mental and physical aspects of martial arts. And when we met with Master Jason for the first time, we knew that we finally found the right place; he is really good with kids, and there’s a well-rounded balance between self defense, discipline, respect and responsibility.

Within a week of starting classes, my 6 yr old daughter, Madison, has adopted the “peacemaker” mantra. Prior to taking martial arts, Maddie was the aggressor in class, this isn’t something I’m proud of, but she was known as the bully. Since taking Master Jason’s classes, however, she has changed her old ways and is now a self-proclaimed peacemaker. A perfect example of this is when  a girl in Maddie’s class jumped on her during naptime; now, Maddie is big for her age, and in the past she would have reacted to this girl jumping on her, but she didn't do anything this time. According to her teacher, Maddie is "less and less physical with other students."

My son, Lance, is also in Master Jason’s classes and he has told me that he likes Master Jason way better than his past instructor. When I asked him why he likes Master Jason more, he replied, “Master Jason is happier, nicer and kinder than my old instructor…”

Both of my kids are really taking the life-skills worksheets to heart, and they are learning the meaning of hard work and earning something versus just being given something without working for it. I love that Folsom Martial Arts Center is not like other schools that just give away belts without the kids earning them.

-Deanna Tsuchida

We enrolled Joshua in class about eighteen months ago and the reason we wanted him enrolled in martial arts is because I studied martial arts and I liked the aspects of focus, discipline, and confidence I got from my training. I saw how it helped me and I wanted him to have the same foundation as I grew up with. We were looking for someplace that had the mental as well as physical aspects of training. We wanted to find that place that had a great match between the program and the instructor. Discipline was an important part that we wanted him to develop and having a place that did that along with combining the physical training was very important to our choice.

I like that Master Jason incorporates the mental focus aspects of Joshua’s training to fit all parts of his life. We like the character skill elements that he is developing that crossover into other areas of his life like in school and at home. For me as a parent, it helps me use these lessons to anchor points that I am teaching him at home to explain and detail it where it will match the same lessons from martial arts and have it understood.

The skills that he is learning are enabling him to react if a bully or personal safety situation does arise and I like that he is improving in that area as well.

The changes that we have seen in Joshua are that his confidence has definitely improved. The physical side of his abilities to handle himself with other kids has improved that he can take care of himself without there being the fear of him becoming a bully or acting out of anger. His self-control has improved to know his own body awareness and abilities.

The skills that I have seen Joshua learning here help me as a parent know that Joshua will grow into the young man that I know he can be.
