I began training with Kovars when I was 11. Without Kovars, I wouldn’t be the driven, goal oriented, self-disciplined person that I am today. Exceptional group of leaders that will help you lead a healthier, safer, and happier lifestyle.

For those seeking a facility for children, this review is intended. We chose Karate to help teach discipline, respect, self control, body awareness, and more to my 5 year old son who has been reluctant to engage in peer activities. Kovars was recommended by a friend and continues to exceed my expectations. Their ability to positively engage children is amazing. Their lessons consist of not only activity and training but also positive life lessons about engaging and interacting with others in their daily lives. The program director responded promptly to my initial inquiry into their program and continued to assist me until I had completed registration and arranged the first class. Upon arrival my son was nervous and did not want to enter the building, despite being excited to start class. A staff member came outside and immediately attempted to connect with him and within minutes he was ready to go inside. I am not sure he would have gone inside otherwise. This initial interaction set the tone and I immediately knew we had come to the right place. Once inside multiple instructors quickly recognized and addressed my sons anxiety and reservation about joining the group and assured us (mainly me) that many young students may just want to sit and watch for a few classes to gain comfort. During our time observing we were regularly greeted and by various staff members who were patient and engaging. Once he was ready, near the end of our second class he began a lesson off to the side with one of the instructors which made him comfortable participating. At the next class he was excited and ready to fully join the group. Upon completion of his classes, the pride and accomplishment he feels is palpable and he is determined to continue his training and looks forward to future accomplishments, with Kovars to thank.

I've been apart of Kovar's in Natomas for 2 years and it has been an amazing experience! The instructors are courteous and knowledgeable. The front desks are pretty awesome, kind and helpful too! Would definitely recommend. 20/10!

Dave Kovar is not just a fantastic person but runs an incredible company. Not only do you learn to defend yourself but you also become a better and more disciplined person.

In November 2022, our 4 year old son started his Karate journey at Kovar's Satori Academy and here we are in March 2023 at his Yellow Belt Promotion! We are so proud of his dedication, enthusiasm, motivation, confidence, discipline, respect, coordination, grace and focus.
Special thanks to Auntie DeeDee and her friends, Dave and Tim Kovar, for recommending Kovar's in Natomas to us, and to Sensei Mir, Renshi Allen, Renshi Sieglitz, Sempai Shahid, Sempai Michehl, Renshi Gonsales, Ms. Hannah, all of the instructors and student assistants that work with these vibrant children with such patience, grace and encouragement; and thanks to the Natomas Demo Team for their amazing performance!

My son has been coming here for 3 weeks. He has a hard time focusing for long periods of time and he can be quite emotional on a not so great day but WOW. Everyone at Kovars is SO incredibly patient and kind. We do a lot of activities and I have NEVER seen so many people as a group or individually be so good with children. Even with larger groups, they find a way to individually make every child feel included and they do such a good job at cheering each kid on and making sure they know what to do and how to do it.
