See what our guests are saying about their time at Flying Kick. 


When I enrolled Lien in your classes, I just wanted him to learn self-defense, but he learned a lot more. Teaching him the three Rs: Respect yourself, Respect others, and be Responsible for your actions has had an amazing positive impact on Lien. With your continuous support and guidance, he always tries to meet expectations. We feel blessed to have Flying Kick in our lives.

Master Sam and his team are everything (and more) that I was looking for in a karate studio. My son Anthony not only learned self-defense but the confidence, the morals that you can see playing out in your child’s life are nothing more than priceless. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control my son is no longer attending. I could see the difference immediately in the effort he puts forth towards school, family, and the important things in life. As soon as humanly possible I will get my son back in and enroll my daughter as well! I honestly couldn’t recommend this family dojo more if I tried. It is that great! Plus they will give you a free trial lesson, and yes with this team you can expect results even after the first initial trial lesson! If you try them, you’ll be glad you did!!

I started training at Flying Kick in 2009. I was overweight, out of shape, taking medication for high blood pressure and turning the big 50. When I first started, Master Sam conducted a comprehensive evaluation of my physical condition as well as my personal objectives. I was very impressed that he spent the time to understand all he could about my individual needs. The first few months Master Sam tailored my training to build my endurance and conditioning.

After 3 months of training I found myself back at my high school weight (lost 32 pounds), in solid shape and 100% off of my blood pressure medication. I owe my physical health and my mental well being to Master Sam and Flying Kick.

If you are looking to change your life for the positive physically and/or mentally regardless of your age or condition, Flying Kick is the place to be. It has been a life changer for me and it can be for you as well.

This is a great traditional TaeKwonDo school! I have been taking classes here for almost two years now, and even after moving over 35 minutes away, I still make it back as often as I can. I really feel that the instructors here really care about me and my well-being, not my monthly payment.
Cheesy as it sounds, TKD and Flying Kick have helped me develop more confidence through sparring (I hate confrontation!), achieving my goals (I am now a 1st degree blue belt!) and maintaining my fitness (way more exciting than a treadmill!)
I definitely recommend Flying Kick to both children and adults.

Flying Kick Martial Arts and Fitness has made a tremendous impact on my life. I not only feel better physically but also mentally. You always get the feeling that Master Sam really cares. He cares not only for our physical well being, but for us as people. When you’re in class you really want to do your best. In life there are not many things that make you feel this way. Classes with Master Sam always do.
On a very personal note, my husband passed away a short time ago. I was not only grieving but I had to run two businesses and do my community volunteer job. With everything going on in my life, going to TaeKwonDo classes really helped me stay focused. Master Sam has a kind nature which really helped me through a very hard time. The students at Flying Kick are special and have become not only classmates but my friends.
Everyone has stress, distractions, and problems in life. Flying Kick’s TaeKwonDo class has taught me how to let go of them. If I have had a bad day I know when I get there I will feel better. The studio always makes me feel safe and peaceful.
Thank you Flying Kick and Master Sam!

Braden and Preston have not only developed their karate skills, but have gained life long values! Thank you, Master Sam.

Master Sam is an incredibly important person in Michael’s life, one we will surely never forget. He has a true gift and I will be forever grateful to him for his leadership, kindness, and the knowledge he has passed on to my son. You are Great, Master Sam!

When I first got here, I didn’t really want to be here. I was nervous and self conscious. As I continued to come here, I developed a liking for martial arts. Now, it is one of my favorite activities. This helped raise my confidene, as well as the encouragement from people like Master Sam, Miss Nadia, Mister Pious, my parents, and others. The dojo is like my second home away from home, or like another family who motivates me, inspires me, and believes in me. TaeKwonDo has taught me control, perseverance, respect, and responsibility. I am proud to wear this black belt. I believe I have trained hard and earned this belt.

My name is Robert Varela and my son’s name is Aiden. He is five years old and is a full yellow belt at Flying Kick. I am a black belt in another discipline for the past 30 years. So I know my way around this ape of life style. I have trained since I was a kid and have been in lots of dojos and gyms... The first time I walked into Flying Kick, I was greeted by Master Sam. Having just met him, I could tell there was something special about him and Flying Kick... We sat down to talk about enrolling my son, Aiden in TaeKwonDo. I was shopping around for a dojo, so I could get my 3 1/2 year old son to start some type of martial arts. I told him that I have been to different places and the energy just wasn’t right for Aiden. So Master Sam told me at the time that Aiden was a bit too young, but I offered to help Aiden anyway I could so he could learn TaeKwonDo. So Master Sam agreed to take Aiden on as a student.
The whole Flying Kick experience with Master Sam and his lead instructor, Mister Pious, has been an amazing journey for my son as well as for myself. The patience and philosophy of Flying Kick is a good reason you should bring your kids here. Not to mention skill level, coordination, along with attitude and self confidence. This place, FLYING KICK, not only teaches you self defense, but they concentrate on development of the kids and adults. They build CHAMPIONS! Master Sam’s wisdom is way beyond his years. I have learned a lot from this Master. I will not take my child anywhere else to learn martial arts!
