Client Reviews

I've been taking my 4 year old to Lama's Kenpo Karate for 2 weeks and he is totally HOOKED.  Ms. Thompson and Ms. Fernandez are amazing.  It's refreshing to see people who expect a high level of respect from kids but actually reciprocate.

Kids have been here for 2 years now. They are doing great and have matured in so many ways. Thank you SIFU Fernandez and SIFU Thompson you ladies are AWESOME!!!!!!!

A.D. Yelp Review

Our 6yo has been going to classes there for the last (almost) three years and our 3yo just started classes - They both love it. All in all, we can't say enough good things about Lama's and the ladies.
