My kids are going on their second month here and they love it! There are no contracts and a discount if you have multiple children. I love that the teachers are young adults themselves because they really seem to connect with the kids. I also love that it never seems like it's too many kids in a group per teacher. They are always doing something and taught to be super respectful. When my boys were little I tried other places in Stockton and I can definitely tell right away that Apex is much more of a fit for my boys. So glad I found it. Thanks to everyone who makes Apex amazing!
This is truly a wonderful martial arts academy. My 8 year old daughter has been going here for almost a year and a half, and she really enjoys every aspect of it. Master Tan is very patient and welcoming and makes sure the children hone their hapkido skills and teaches discipline while reinforcing positive character traits. The other two instructors [Emelie/Jasmin] are both really good role models and are excellent with the children and make the overall experience very fun and engaging for everyone. I highly recommend this martial arts academy to anyone that is looking for a great place to learn an awesome new skill set in the wide world of martial arts.
Master Tan at [Apex Martial Arts] is THE BEST. Actually, every single instructor here at the school is fantastic. My son is only 4 but has learned so much here. His discipline, social skills, and his fine/large motor skills have improved beyond a normal 4 year old's range and a lot of it is due to the classes held here at the school. Every child I've seen here is above and beyond fit. The older ones that have been here a while are so disciplined and athletic. It's very impressive.
They learn not only the martial art itself but life skills as well. It's not all games like it is at a lot of other schools in Stockton and trust me, I took my son on sample classes to every other school in the area. This is the only school in Stockton that offers this quality of learning.
In addition to the classes, your child will be able to join in on field trips, little events, demos, etc. They foster not just a healthy body but a healthy community here at the school. My husband and I do not regret even one penny spent on the monthly tuition.
If you are considering some sort of extracurricular activity for your child, try out a class here. I promise you won't need to look anywhere else.
My boys have been attending Kuk sool for a few months and they love it. I also see a lot of improvements in there technique, form and discipline.
My eleven-year-old daughter loves coming to class. The instructor is wonderful with the kids. He jokes with them and is very encouraging. My daughter has become stronger and more self-confident through the classes.
My son has gone great lengths to know where my family has come from and thanks to Stockton Kuk Sool Hapkido, my son has learned to respect his grandparents, aunt, uncle and me. He has yet to focus a tiny bit more but much better before starting two months ago. He has kept his grades up during school. Thank You. I should brush up on my Korean too.
I highly recommend Stockton Kuk Sool Hapkido to all parents. My daughter loves coming to classes. The atmosphere is positive, friendly and family orientated. Master Tan and instructors are Amazing!!
Thanks to Kuk Sool our kids are more active. The kids not only learn
I wish I still lived in Stockton for this school!! Amazing instructors and even more amazing philosophy/art. Its been 13 years, and it still influences me to this day. Try it. You won't be disappointed!!
I had been training here since October of 2014 and I enjoyed it very much. The instructor always pushed me and when I felt I was getting good there was always something new to learn. I take the adult class, but I can see as I'm leaving that the younger students have a great bond with each other.
Not sure what that McDojo reviewer saw, but from these 9 months if training I have been able to go to a Tae Kwon Do Dojang and a Judo Dojo and hold my own at least. I guess that's not "real world," but it should speak to effective techniques.
The years that I was able to be part of this family, all received was LOVE, RESPECT, PATIENCE, lots of DISCIPLINE and most importantly I was able to feel the part of my family. Highly recommended if you want to learn the real definition of discipline, respect (for yourself and to others) and physically challenging training.
I'm currently a student here and I love it so much! Great teaching styles and they actually do not just stick to one style. It's a variety of different self-defense moves and overall just a fun place to be!
Most well rounded martial arts school I have ever encountered! Kids learn discipline, defend themselves, make friends, and have full support from other families. Master Tan is very patient, creative in keeping the kids engaged, and make training fun! Highly recommended!!
My son has learned and gained so much confidence from going to school here. Thank you for all you do with him
You will not only learn Kuk Sool but you will learn from some of the best instructors (
Great and fun. The martial arts is great over there. I love there.
