    I really, genuinely do, LOVE this place.  Ms. Burkel and her team are rock stars.  They are so inviting to everyone and we really do feel like family here.  My daughter joined Karate America about a year ago and loves it.  The instructors make everything so fun for her and she is learning important values at the same time.  I am super sad that Mr. Rossi is no longer an instructor but Ms. Fitch is doing an amazing job at filling some pretty big shoes.  They offer so much more than just karate: parent's night out (our personal favorite), after school care, summer camp, birthday parties, etc.  We did one day of summer camp this past summer and it just so happened to be on a day where they were taking a field trip into Madison.  I was honestly a little nervous about this as my daughter hasn't ventured far from my side her entire life.  Ms. Burkel reassured me everything would be fine and then that night when I raised my concerns to my husband he said "Oh I'm totally find with it.  She will be with instructors who are black belts or almost black belts.  She's in very good hands."  I had never looked at it that way but he was right.  I really do hope that our daughter sticks with karate and eventually is an junior instructor at Karate America herself.  Fingers crossed!

    We love how much the girls have learned at Karate America. It's not just about the karate moves, the kids learn focus, respect and a different ideal is taught each term. They have learned acceptance, honor, excellence and perseverance. They learn self defense moves in a safe environment. Who wouldn't want their child to know what to do if a stranger grabbed them?  They also have a great after school program, where kids ride the school bus to KA. When there is a teachers work day, KA is open for all day camp. And parent night out and summer camp and adult classes and excellent teachers and helpers...this place is awesome.

    My daughter has gained confidence while having fun. She is eager to attend class and she is using the values learned from class in everyday life, plus she is teaching her younger sister.

    We love Karate America Oregon. Sarah Burkel and her staff know exactly how to deliver excellent customer service. The staff really cares about the young people embodying the true values of a martial artist: dedication, discipline, respect for self and others, etc. you won't find a more dedicated staff and business owner - it is a true community of lifelong learners.

    I have been with the program for 9 years and it has been a life-changing experience! I have gone through many belts and have learned many life skills, such as respect, integrity, self- discipline and determination. The staff is always helpful and caring, and the atmosphere is friendly and fun! Overall, Karate America Oregon is a great place to have a blast while learning martial arts!
