Master Gonzalez, The only thing I regret is taking my son Julian to a McDojo for 2 years. I thought since it was a big franchise, that he would be getting quality instructions. Boy, was I wrong. Not only did I waste money but worse, I wasted 2 years of my child’s life because he did not learn anything. Every month there was a new instructor. I finally got fed up with the nonsense so I shopped around and found American Karate Institute. WOW!!! What a difference. I thought all schools were the same. Now my son is so much more confident and he LOVES it. Sensei Lipsky is amazing.
