“Matt is a fantastic instructor for both kids and adults, experienced and not. And the people I've met in class have been great."

Steve / Student

"I couldn't provide a better endorsement. This program isn't about violence, its about values, family, friends and learning how to stand up in a big scary world and say that you won't be bullied or be a witness to bullying. Highly recommend it for anyone looking to get their kids into a sports program, it is so much more than martial arts."

Jorge / Parent & Student

"Can't say enough great things about Han Mi! They have been so patient with us regarding class schedules, COVID-19 and getting settled into a routine. My daughter has been in martial arts previously, and after a few year hiatus was excited to get back into the swing of things. We are all excited to be part of the Han Mi family."
