Andrew and Marcy West
“We enrolled our son at Goldsboro Okinawa Karatedo in February of 2018 at the age of 7. We started karate to help him build his confidence and self-esteem. Since then, we have seen tremendous growth in all aspects of his life, as well as, in his confidence and self-esteem. Our favorite thing about karate has been seeing his personal growth and dedication to karate in a few short years. We chose Goldsboro Karate after a recommendation from our neighbor. Then after speaking with Sensei Jason and Sensei Anne, we knew it was the perfect place for him. We have had only positive experiences with the instructors and dojo overall. I would recommend Goldsboro Okinawa Karatedo to anyone who is interested in trying karate. You will be amazed at what it can do for your child!”
