    Lee's Martial Arts Academy is such a great place in West Seattle.  The kickboxing class on Tuesdays and Saturdays is AWESOME!!  Lisa is a wonderful instructor.  She may look sweet and demure, but watch out, she'll kick your butt!!!

    Wonderful and generous owners! They offer a large variety of classes and times which makes it very convenient for busy parents! Along with Tae Kwon Do I have taken numerous "work out" classes which have proven to be very successful. Definitely worth my time and money!

    TKD was always something i've been wanting to experience ever since a young age. The instructors in this dojang are FANTASTIC and make it a great place to learn the art of Taekwondo. I plan on staying here for quite awhile :)

    I gave the arobic kickboxing class a try 2 years ago and I'm still going, along with tons of others! Lisa and Joe are amazing instructors with strong family values. Giving the West Seattle Lee's Martial Arts a try was one of the best decisions I've made for my body and my mind. I would encourage anyone who is interested in TKD, family or independant, or kickboxing to stop by, you'll get hooked!

    I love this school! It's as good as it gets!. The instructors are great and my kids love the classes. This school has been around for 20+ years.  The rates are affordable and the environment friendly and positive. It's family oriented and the facility is spacious. This school has Parent Night Outs, Summer camps,and Self Defense Classes. The Kickboxing is out of this world! I highly recommend this school.

    I haven't worked out at the studio, but I have worked with a number of the instructors at this school (I taught TKD with two of them), and I did study at another (no longer in existence) Lee Brothers school. In short, I loved it. I know that TKD isn't for everyone, but I had the time of my life studying it. Tyler is an excellent instructor and an incredibly gifted martial artist (I believe he's been studying since he was six). Don is also excellent as an instructor. He is methodical with his teaching and incredibly patient. Tracy, I didn't teach with her as much, but she has a wealth of information about TKD. If you are looking for a studio for your kids, I can tell you that Lee Brothers has a great system. The kids at my branch loved it and really excelled.
