Mr. Sackett is amazing with my son. He has tremendous patience and understanding with Neurodivergent kids. Very accommodating to families in all aspects. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for Martial Arts classes for their kiddos. We attended quite a few trial classes and by far he was the one with the most understanding and patience.

We love Family Martial Arts Center! My son has tried a bunch of different activities and nothing really stuck until we found Mr. Sackett's Martial Arts. He is firm but kind with the kids and makes classes fun!

We brought our Girl Scout troop here for a lesson and it was wonderful! Mr Sackett did a fantastic job! He is great with children and all the girls had fun while learning some basic karate moves. I highly recommend!!!

My family has had such a wonderful experience with Family Martial Arts Center of SPF! My oldest son started in summer 2020 and has achieved so much over the last 4 years. My younger son opted to start at 5 years old and is progressing nicely. I look forward to sending my daughter when she is old enough!
The instructors nurture natural talent and provide support for building more difficult skills when needed. It is not easy to manage a room full of young children at the end of a busy day. They have endless patience. It's easy to see that the students really enjoy being there.
I recommend giving this dojo a try if you are looking for a fun, athletic experience for your child. I've seen a demonstrated improvement in my kids' skills and an increase in self discipline. Thank you, Mr. Sackett!

Mr. Sackett is wonderful with our son always makes him feel comfortable and know he can accomplish tasks and goals. His patience with the young ones is wonderful. And they continue to learn. I am so glad this is where we decided to start his karate training.

Mr. Sackett is a wonderful instructor for all ages and abilities. My 7 year old has come a long way since he first started karate class. He is less shy and more confident. He is involved in a lot of activities and can't always make it to his usual class, but there are multiple class options, so we appreciate the flexible schedule.
