I can't express enough how delighted I am with the experience. The instructors at this studio are exceptional (especially Jeramy!) they are highly skilled in martial arts and incredibly patient and nurturing with the kids. I highly recommend this karate studio to any parent looking to introduce their child to martial arts in a safe and encouraging environment.

My son's been attending class for 2 months now and he loves it. The staff is very good with the kids. They're all funny and make it fun but they're also great at teaching discipline and when to be serious. I'm extremely happy we decided to sit in and watch a class!

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!

Kovars Folsom, Shihan Sipes, and his awesome team of instructors continue to pour into our boys with their kid-friendly curriculum, experience, and super fun environment. Learning and practicing Mixed Martial Arts every week is building up our boys confidence,their physical and mental strength, and gives them a skill to work at and be proud of. We LOVE Kovars Folsom!

We absolutely love Kovars. The coaches are all amazing, my son loves coming here. They not only teach the kiddos martial arts but self discipline and respect. I have been recommending them to all my friends.

Such an encouraging program for my 3rd grader. We have been going since he was 6. The instructors work magic with him and he is always happier when he leaves and repeats some great lessons about being a good person outside of class. I would highly recommend.
