My son is 3 years old and he enjoyed his first class...although he did not earn his belt. The instructor (John) was very nice and patient with him. The first class focused on listening skills, which I knew my son would have a hard time with because he's energetic and tends to be all over the place at times. He also did some punching and blocking, but he got a little distracted as other children started to enter for the next class. We attended the Saturday class at 9 am and it lasted about 30 mins. Overall, we enjoyed the class. I'm looking forward to the next session and seeing how his self-discipline and listening skills improve.
Loved it just went in to register with Johanna she was great she explained everything in detail and assisted me in filling out all of the proper paperwork. She was knowledgeable,speedy,efficient and had a great mannerism.During the registration process I was able to see sensei John in action.He was great with the kids there were no winners or losers every kid was praised for doing their best.
Absolutely AWESOME! Everyone is so nice. Sensei John is VERY patient with the children. My children are 3 and 4. I have some knowledge of karate and I love how Sensei introduces the children to the art. Job well done. . .now I hope my children stay as interested as I am!!!

About Martial Arts Hero Factory
For the instructors at Martial Arts Hero Factory, karate has always been a family affair. Master John McGonnigle Sr. earned his first black belt at age 16. His son and fellow instructor, John Jr., began to learn martial arts moves when he was two, imitating his dad while rolling around in his playpen. And Madison McGonnigle has gone from a student in the school's Little Ninjas program—geared toward 3–6-year-olds—all the way to becoming its teacher.
The McGonnigles put all of this expertise to use during their classes, in which they teach students of all ages the strikes and blocks of Shotokan karate, as well as the self-defense maneuvers of Krav Maga. All-in-all, they believe learning martial arts not only improves physical strength and the chances of defending yourself against dangerous wooden planks, but also character. Though they focus on rehearsing swift kicks and punches, each lesson also emphasizes values such as respect and teamwork.
