The Academy - Martial Arts Leadership Reviews

Appleton Kids Martial Arts

We have watched our boys and our family benefit so much from being part of the The Academy Martial Arts family! One of the greatest benefits has been the respect that is not only taught but modeled by every instructor. The instructors have taken the time to walk along side our boys and teach them to be honoring young men by learning to set goals, work hard to achieve them, and to never give up! The awesome part is how this positive attitude shows up in the rest of their life - at school, at home, and at church. We are so thankful for all the life skills they have learned at The Academy Martial Arts!

Our family has been part of The Academy Martial Arts for 10 years. Our children have definitely learned excellent karate and jiu jitsu skills that are very tangible and easily seen by others. However, they have learned much more than great martial arts skills. The Academy Martial Arts has enriched their character development and has provided an environment for our children to develop life skills including leadership, confidence, goal-setting, discipline, respect, integrity and more. Instructors at The Academy Martial Arts are not just martial arts instructors but they are role models for students in every way and they desire to help each student reach their individual best both in martial arts and in life. We are very blessed to be a part of The Academy Martial Arts family.

We joined The academy martial arts about 4 years ago and have found it to be a welcome support network to our family. We originally went into it thinking we would learn all the karate basics and advanced moves in time, but found quite a bonus in the training offered there. When the instructors started to talk about Self Discipline, Focus, Respect and continuously had them take responsibility for their own behaviors and choices, it supplemented our own parenting and family expectations so well that we knew this would be a long term relationships. What we love about this particular karate school is its high expectation both of the students as well as the instructors. The kids aren't a number, they are a person with a name. The instructors make sure to use everyones name to make them feel as important as God made them. They also have a very low turnover of instructors. The same instructors are there now as when we started and that type of continuity and security is welcome in a society where everything changes on a dime. We love our The academy martial arts family!!

Superb program with amazing teachers!!! My two children have become black belts and one is going on for his second degree. They have become better people through this program. There is so much more taught than karate. They have learned so much about themselves as well as others, learned respect, are goal-oriented and hold themselves to higher standards. I would recommend for anyone!!! Truly blessed to be a part of THE ACADEMY Martial Arts family!

My experience at THE ACADEMY Martial Arts was one of the best experiences of my life. I can't say enough about Mr. & Mrs. Denu and the staff all though it's been some time since I have been able to do karate due to health problems I still think of the time I was blessed to have the experience my son also took the journey with me it. Was a great time and the school and staff are very professional awesome awesome awesome.

We joined THE ACADEMY Martial Arts Leadership Appleton through the park and rec program and did not know what to expect. We were more than impressed and happy to find an environment that focuses on family and growth. Our daughters enjoy a physical curriculum that is packed with technique taught by excellent instructors who keep them engaged and striving towards improvement. They are taught life lessons of respect, focus, and self discipline that reinforce our teachings at home. Our involvement in the program at THE ACADEMY Martial Arts Leadership has helped transform and focus our daughters behavior and made us mighty proud parents.

Our kids are surrounded by an atmosphere that teaches discipline, respect, responsibility, and integrity. They learn wonderful life lessons and have SO much FUN!! Highly recommend any of their programs!

Stephen received his black belt last November at The Academy. The owners and staff are very involved every day activities. They involve the parents in the growth of the student and teach what integrity is to the kids. Above all using martial arts as a defense mechanism only.
I would say the karate is a small part of what he learned. I hear Stephen say things all the time that he learned. Respect is earned. Do homework and chores first before play. Make eye contact when shaking someone’s hand and greeting them. Be alert of your surroundings. The learning is never ending. 👍🏻. We know our Sarah will grow in many positive ways through this experience!

My daughter has been apart of The Academy Family since Oct 2017 and has enjoyed everything about it. She has grown so much as an individual and gained a lot of confidence on who she is. The instructors do an awesome job in not just teaching karate but life lessons as well. The Academy has helped my daughter overcome a lot and has been something she looks forward to. It is the highlight of her day! An awesome place!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the academy family. Signing our son up was one of the best decisions we've made. The black belts are amazingly patient with the students - teaching them respect and discipline. I enjoy our son's smiling face each time he has earned a new belt or learned a new move. Thank you so much to all the staff for everything they have done for our son!!

Words cant even describe how amazing our experience with The Academy has been over the last 2 years. Karate has changed my son's life, and for the better. He was really struggling in school and giving me a hard time at home. Got him in karate and had seen a huge improvement in all aspects of his life. The Academy would not be what it is without their amazing staff, our family is blessed to have them in our lives.
