Shihan Cruz is a fantastic instructor for our son! He provides excellent communication and feedback about class and test schedules as well as taking great personal interest in the training of each of his students. He sets a great example of personal character for everyone in his class. He is the best martial arts instructor we have ever worked with!

My 15 years old son, 12 years old daughter and I started Karate classes with Shihan Jose Juan Cruz about 2 months ago. He can definitely teach in a way that is easy to understand and follow and is interesting for all ages. My kids and I don’t just learn the tradition of Karate but also get a good work out, learn self defense and bond over a common interest at the same time. We always look forward to the next class, I highly recommend him as a Sensei for any age student.

I spent five months at this Dojo, and it was the most fun I had had in a long time. Sensei Cruz is a very patient instructor, who taught me much in my limited stay. I definitely will be recommending this Dojo to everyone I know.
