The best of the best martial arts school! They truly care about your child and teaching them to defend themselves! Joel does a fantastic job of being in charge. He’s a great role model! We unexpectedly had to leave the area, but can’t wait to get back and be a part of Kovars again!

We really like Kovar’s Folsom, the coaches are very friendly and knowledgeable. My son says It’s really fun and entertaining for him and he enjoys it a LOT! It has been a positive experience for our family and would definitely recommend to other people!

We’ve been with Kovar’s Laguna for 5 years. What I love the very most at Kovar’s is the instructors. Every single one of them lives the principles of black belt, which they teach their students consistently. They are modest and courteous, they have integrity, they persevere in various circumstances, and they show courage and indomitable spirit. At the end of every class they ask “How do we lead?” The answer is “By example, Sir!” That’s Kovar’s. They love what they teach, and they live what they teach. They show love and respect to each and every student and parent. They are professional and caring and they go the extra mile. We were with them before and during Covid, and we moved out of state, and they still accommodated our unique needs. I look up to these employees and respect and admire them. I watch what they do and hope to be a better parent because of what I learn from them. I love how they talk to the students about how important it is to have these great character traits and to just be a good person.

From the first time we walked in for orientation, this crew has been amazing! We have been going for two weeks, and my daughter is all in. An experience for all ages, but I have to say, the connection with kids and the presentation of values through kindness and hosptality is second to none. A great opportunity for my daughter to make new friends in a teaching environment of respect for self, and others. Classes have become a highlight in our week!

Our daughter started training here 5 weeks ago. We were hoping that it would help her mental focus and that's exactly what is happening, in addition to the physical training. Great for kids to learn to pay attention. Excellent trainers, very clean and organized.

Our family of four has trained at Kovars for 11 years. My children basically grew up at Kovars and I could not have asked for a better influence than the instructors. Beyond martial arts, they learned many valuable life lessons here.
