My daughter had been begging to begin karate. We had avoided it because we had heard more dissatisfied parents about fees and various other issues. When I saw City Of Goodyear Rec offered Karate at a very affordable rate I decided to check it out and if she liked it move to a non-rec organization. Well I have been so impressed with Sensei Cece & Woody I have no plans on leaving them. Amazing caring and loving individuals that my daughter cares deeply for. She loves her sessions and I have seen maturity and growth in who she is. Love this program!
