"Ray's American Karate School has a home like feeling of it's own. You are treated very welcome the minute you walk through the door. They have a great variety in age of the instructors, which I feel is important to address the range of age groups they teach. Mrs. Gomez is very calm and patient, especially with the 4-6 age group. She takes time out to teach each child individually. Mr. Gomez has a way of talking to the "Little Dragons" that draws out the kids interest. He asks the kids good questions in kid language that gets them thinking. The rest of the instructors are absolutely awesome. This is defintely a karate school that you can stay with throughout your karate years."
