Anywhere but CMA , theyre a bunch of shady guys there , theres always some guy there that thinks hes a big fighter checking out all the young girls, dont know the name , but he wears t shirts 2 sizes to small and a huge cross around his neck. Ive seenthis guy racing up and down the highway on a black crotch rocket wearing glasses that are 3 sizes to big for his head. Lol!

I'll 2nd the suggestion for Extreme Kids. Mark & Dennis are very good instructors. They are very patient and work well with the kids. I wouldn't think of taking my kids anywhere else.

Also, Mark is really good about letting your kids have a free lesson or two just so they can see if it is really something they want to do and stick with. With a policy like that, you can't lose.

Added bonus for us ladies is Dennis is kinda cute.
sounds like

Another thing with Dennis being cute is he is single too. I send my kids there just to look at Dennis. He's so dreamy!

I would avoid the place in the Illinois Centre Mall like the plague.

I thought it would be a good idea to take my kid there so that he could learn karate. They came highly recommended.

The very first night he went, they demonstrated a choke hold technique and put it on with so much force that my son ended up pooping in his pants.

Needless to say, he was embarassed, I was infuriated. We will never be back.
