Our daughter has attended Zentai for close to four years now. She loves it! The staff is super friendly and caring. We have had a wonderful experience at Zentai. During the strict quarantine, Zentai quickly adapted by adding virtual classes. It gave us all a sense of connectedness again!! We truly enjoy our time at Zentai.
My son and daughter recently started with Zentai. Within the first couple of classes there is a huge improvement in listening, behavior, and self control. The staff is kind and understanding, they work with the children individually on an as needed basis. I’m so happy I found this activity for my kids, as it not only helps them physically but mentally and emotionally as well. 5 star rating to the employees and the clean and inviting environment they provide! Thank you!!
This facility is amazing. My daughter was captivated by Master Allen from their first meeting and has absolutely loved going to class for the past year. Little sister has since joined as well and is learning so much. Everyone there is so great with the kids and have a way with them that can’t even be described. So thankful to have found the Zentai family! 🧡🧡
My child attends Zentai Martial Arts and I could not be more pleased with the entire program they offer. He has been doing karate with them for almost a year and he absolutely loves it. More importantly to me my son learns things way beyond martial arts, things to carry with him throughout his lifetime. The life skills they teach children effect them in so many ways and I personally have seen improvements in my child's discipline, focus, and just overall good behavior. The staff is amazing and one of the instructors has personally known my child ever since he was a baby, since he worked at the supermarket nearby we would go to. I have nothing to say but good things about every single person that I interact with over at Zentai and they are very helpful when needed. They are also very understanding with the children as each child has different needs. Zentai gives the children they teach a platform to grow on and improve themselves personally and make them work hard at it very consistently. You can tell how much the instructors care about the work they do just from watching them teach the children one time.
My son has been going there for a little over a year now and he loves it. He keeps asking when we’re going again! The instructors and the staff are amazing. They know how to be strict and have fun at the same time. He is learning not only martial arts but also skills like focus, discipline and confidence. That’s so important for a 5 year old especially now. Thank you Zentai.
My kids really enjoy going to Karate! Im very impressed with how friendly they are and how they handle the children!
Allen and Naomi, you guys have truly started something special here. I can see it already! The energy and attention you give each child is remarkable.
The best marital arts ever. I love it my son is in the after school program. And I am so happy for him.
I love the workouts I got at Zentai and the support you get from Master Allen and his wife!! I highly recommend it to everyone! :)
It was a nice workout and very informative and made me feel more confident, as well!
Hands down the best of the best. Couldn't recommend this place anymore. Great people, great atmosphere. Lessons learned here stay with you for a lifetime
What amazing place! They are genuinely passionate about helping people. Kids love them, great environment for parents. And the Martial Arts is real. If you are looking for self defense for yourself or kids, this is the place.
At first I was intimated by the cardio kickboxing class but then I realized why everyone still pushed through and kept going- it's the energy! We get pumped up, laugh and encourage one another, and it's fun. I don't like gyms because I wouldn't feel encouraged to think of my own workout and I'd end up being very lazy with it. [Unless it's yoga, I do all my yoga. :)] So this is finally a power workout where I feel encouraged to pull out my best work and still have a fun time. I'm feeling stronger each week! Thanks, Master Allen!
We tried a few other martial arts groups for our boys, but Zentai was the clear winner from the start. The kids specifically asked for a program with structure that would clearly teach them martial arts skills while leveling up their belts. I'm amazed during every class when I see them respond to commands with so much focus and passion. Zentai has helped them build up their confidence and taught them so much already. And they have a blast! We highly recommend Zentai!
They say it takes a village to raise a child. Zentai has been our village since my grandson William lost his mother in May of 2017. Now it's home away from home. He started out 2 days a week at Zentai for martial arts classes. When school ended we enrolled him in Zentai summer camp. Now he's enrolled in the after school program. Thank you Zentai for being our village.
We absolutely love this place! My son started coming for the after school program at the beginning of last year. He absolutely loves it and looks forward to going everyday. He has ADHD and we had a hard time finding a program that fits his needs until we stumbled upon Zentai. Best after school program out there for kids of all types and ages! We highly recommend it!
I just wanted to give a shout out to Zentai Martial Arts and After School Program! I had my daughter’s birthday there on Sunday and they made it amazing! The attention to detail, the one on one with the kids just fabulous! Everyone was so happy and we all enjoyed our time there. Naomy and Allen are amazing patient people, the smile never left their faces and they were so kind and patient with the kids! I can’t say thank you enough for making this the best birthday yet!
