The atmosphere, the instructors, the skills and the training. These instructors are hands-on! Their patience are magnificent. You have to at least like and love kids, for the instructors to do what they do with the kids. My son has been attending Palanzo Martial Arts ever since he was 5 years old. He took a year or two off. Once he started back going, he was able to start where he left off. Now, he loves the passion of going and the skills that he has learned. He even attended a tournament and won 3 trophies after starting back a year later! My son as well as my entire family love Palanzo Martial Arts. It's almost like a second home. Thanks Palanzo Martial Arts for taking a child who was shy, had low self esteem and low self confidence and helping him to achieve what he's been working sooo hard to achieve and to become!!
