My son has been going here for almost two years now and he loves it. Most of the time I have to drag him out. He is doing great and moving up. I love to see him in action. Great team of teachers.

As a former student of Shim’s back in the 80’s, I got to admit that I’ve carried a lot of the teachings onto my adult life. I know I’m being bias here, but my love of the school hasn’t waned in all the years of my life.

If the school today still holds on to the same principals that was taught to us way back when, then you can do no wrong in ether attending the school or sending your children there.

This school has been such a positive help in my families loves. They show compassion and care while building strong foundations in each and every one of their students. When there is room for improvement they let their students know and when they see improvement they praise the child in knowing they are doing better. I feel they have a no child left behind act because I have yet to see Sir Oscar, Sir Hazari, Sir Alex or any other instructor ever give up on any child. This location is more than just a tae kwon do learning center this is our second home and we couldn't be more blessed to say so.

Master Alfaro is brilliant and inspirational. He has an enormous influence and lifelong positive effects on his students. He is also generous and gracious, treating his students as members of an extended family.

Excellent place, my kids have been attending Shim's for several years now, thru the after school program. Teachers have exelent discipline, and the kids repect it and admire it. They have time to interact with other kids while learning Taekwondo. Thanks Master Alfaro, and crew.

A great school run by Master Alfaro who is a disciplined and a strong instructor. He commands authority and the children and adults respect him. This TKD is about community and offers so much more than just your traditional martial arts classes. The facility is good and very large. The instructors are well trained and patient.

Shim's has truly taught me discipline and respect for others. My best memories as a child and teen, was coming directly here after school for every lesson. Shim's has taught me to be confident in myself, to have courage, to protect myself and defend others. Bring your child to Shim's and watch them grow into incredible individuals that society needs.

This is a great school. I, an adult, have benefited greatly from the knowledge of the instructors. Since January 2016, I've lost about 30lbs and it has been greatly in part because of my training with Master Vin and other great instructors. All instructors and other students have been amazing to me and my growth, not only as a beginner "martial artist", but as a human in general. I've been privileged to see the instructors working with kids and, frankly, I can't see why these kids won't grow up to be great, responsible and respectable adults, mainly because of the training and discipline the receive from Master Alfaro, who is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and his instructors. What I've learned from them is something that i will have, and cherish, for the rest of my life. Thank you, Shim's Martial Arts Academy
