1. Excellent remote class

    Sensei B makes such a concerted effort to speak directly to those of us on zoom, to engage us, not just with articulate instruction, but with his humor and positive attitude.  While we prefer being in person,  like all of us do,  Sensei B has a way of making us feel very much a part of class and that he sees us. As a frequent "zoomer" I cannot express my gratitude for that enough. His instructi…Read More

  3. You have a wonderful member of your staff in Sensei Urton

    Dave and I wanted to let you know how much we value Sensei Urton’s mentoring style. As parents, we’ve always felt comfortable with his approachability and professionalism. However, he is really adored by the students as well. Both Eliana and Owen have enjoyed being part of his classes - when they attended the in-person trainings at the dojo and now for this extended period of time via zoom. We…Read More

  4. This school is a family

    I have learned that this school is a family. I have made so many friends and built trust in my instructors and all of the Black Belts before me. I absolutely thank the student who felt compelled to talk to me about International Kenpo and JuJitsu.…Read More

  7. Amazing respectful community

    The dojo is one of the most lively and social places I've ever been to, the teachers always find a way to crack a joke and have fun games and activities planned to make the dojo more welcoming. My favorite thing about Kaizen IBBA would have to be the amazing respectful community I see walking through the door every day. I don't think I would be here right now without this amazing community.…Read More

  8. Why I joined and decided to stick around!

    There were many reasons we got involved with martial arts at IBBA. My biggest intention was to give my daughter some confidence and make some new friends going into middle school, that turned out to be just the beginning. There were many reasons I personally needed to be part of something like martial arts. The first that comes to mind is the mental break that it allows. During class it is always …Read More

  9. Welcome diversity

    What I like best about Kaizen IBBA is that they welcome diversity and new ideas because people are able to learn to accept others and grow themselves. I also like how Kaizen really helps you find your voice and helps you develop into a newer and better person. They are very particular about Ohana (it means family) by making sure everyone feels like they belong.…Read More

  10. Welcoming and enthusiastic

    When I first came to the dojo all of the instructors and students were welcoming and enthusiastic. I saw friendly faces encouraging me to walk this path with them. I came to Kaizen in the middle of my karate journey, so I was "the new kid." but the thing is, I wasn't rejected by the other students or overly disciplined. I was welcomed into the wonderful ohana of karate lovers. Now that I have been…Read More
