I'm writing this on behalf of my son, who began taking karate with Don at the age of 4. The classes were fun and educational, and the kids really learned some good lessons in discipline and respect, while learning excellent technique! Maxx got his Junior Black Belt at the age of 10. It's simply a really cool thing to get your child involved in... if you're looking for something extra-curricular. I Highly Recommend Don Ritter's School of Karate, along with the extra Instructors-who were all excellent as well.

My daughter and son have been students of Don Ritter's Karate for 10 and 12 years respectively. In that time they have learned self-discipline, physical coordination and perseverance in addition to the katas, self-defense and sparring techniques in their weekly classes. I feel that karate has contributed greatly to their confidence and self-esteem. Also, the leadership opportunities available at Don Ritter's have allowed them to develop these skills. The skills required for the sport of karate have helped them excel both in academics and other extracurricular activities at school.
