LISTEN TO WHAT OUR HAPPY PARENTS ARE SAYING
We cannot say enough good things about the staff and the quality of the programming at Pouncing Tigers. I have a 7 year old who has been going for years and he is excited to go. Ken and Alex are thoughtful, kind and firm in a way that the kids really respond. A real gem in this city.
My son was so hesitant at first, but the instructor was so kind and patient. 15 min into the class, he was interacting and really enjoying himself. He will definitely be back.
This is a great martial arts school for kids. Ken and his team are fantastic. They're professional, cordial, patient and all around good guys. His other instructor, Anthony, at the 2nd Avenue location is such a great compliment to Ken's team.
Plus the kids love and respect these guys. Our little guy has definitely become more discipline and focused since taking classes over the last few months.
