We signed our 6 year old son up last week and he absolutely loves it. Immediately noticed a change in his behaviour....and we didn't even sign him up because of that lol. If you're looking for an extracurricular activity for your kids (or you) I highly recommend taking them to Ogawa Karate. So happy with our decision.
