| ||The Center for Martial Arts has taken karate, which originally started out as a fun pastime, and turned it into a part of my life. Through The Center for Martial Arts I have made lifelong friends and grown as an individual. I recommend them because they are such a big part of my life and who I am.|

|As a Dad of two boys, it was of utmost importance to me that my 2 guys (now ages 20 and 18 years) be influenced by a kind and virtuous person with the highest ethical and humanistic standards; standards that he requires of himself and that he expects and successfully develops in his students. Mr. Pattison at the Center for Martial Arts exemplifies and personifies all that a parent can ask for in a teacher, mentor and person to help a child make the difficult transition from child to autonomous young adulthood. |
Although the martial arts instruction is outstanding, my personal comfort comes not only from knowing that both my guys know how to "take care of themselves in the street" if need be, and they have learned how to use their persuasive intelligence rather than their fists to avoid physical altercations whenever possible. However, as important as self defense ability is, of even greater importance are the other life lessons that are presented as an integral part of the arts training. I feel that the most valuable lessons my young men learned and developed at the Center for Martial Arts include respect for all people (including and especially themselves), respect for the environment, the importance of setting goals worthy of themselves, and daily effort to move oneself toward those goals and life purposes, and taking responsibility for their actions. These virtues remain with and continue to serve his students as a part of their personal character, long after their martial arts studies have been replaced by other life endeavors and adventures.
Enrolling my guys in Mr. Pattison's program was one of the best things I ever did for my kids! Just goes to show you that even I get it right once in a while!
