      My children have been going to Chay’s Tae Kwon Do for the past two years(current ages are 10 and 7) so I write this review from the perspective as a parent.

      Master Chay has high, but realistic expectations and extensive martial arts experience. The instructors lead by example and encourage all students to put their best foot forward, both in Tae Kwon Do and in their lives outside of class.

      As my daughter progresses through her Tea Kwon Do training, I’ve watched her increase her strength, coordination, flexibility and has learned to strive for continuous improvements in her training.

      My son has also increased his flexibility, endurance, strength and focus(and that’s no small task, as he struggles with this on a daily basis). Master Chay has worked side by side with our family and has always been available if we needed advice – he responds promptly to e-mails and phone messages.

      The confidence that both children have built through Chay’s Tae Kwon Do shines through in others areas of their lives.

      For Master Chay, Tae Kwon Do is not nearly a job or a business; it is his undeniable passion.

      When I started the Krav Maga program at Chays I was looking to learn a little self defense. I had no prior experience so I was pretty nervous.However, my nerves were quickly put to rest. I found the instructors as well as the students were very supportive and encouraging. The classes have a wide range of ages as well as fitness levels. The instructors are very knowledgeable in what they teach and always able to answer any question that I may have. They also do a great job in changing up the classes so they don’t get boring and repetitive. I’ve been participating in the Krav Maga program for 12 years now. Thank you to Master Chay and his instructors for the years of great service!

      My 13 year old son has been a student at Chay’s Tae Kwon Do for over a year now. He absolutely loves it there. A couple of years back my son lost interest in playing conventional sports such as football, baseball and basketball. But I believe its important for young boys and girls to have some sort of healthy physical outlet. So we looked around the Racine area for something he would actually want to do. After attending his first class, my son decided that Tae Kwon Do was for him. Master Chay provides a variety of reasonably priced belt schedules and a few different class hours to fit everyone’s needs. The Experienced and Motivated Instructors are definitely there to help and teach the students, not feed their own egos. Which really put my mind at ease when I first enrolled my child into a martial arts class. Part of Master Chay’s class requirements are that students have to show their report cards and show respect in both class and at home. If either the parents or Master Chay do not believe the student has behaved well enough, they do not get to test for their next belt. I really like that aspect of Master Chay’s Class because it really motivates my son to do well in school and at home. My son has been going to Master Chay’s classes 1-3 nights a week for over a year now and he still looks forward to every single class. That, in and of itself, is saying something. I would definitely recommend Chay’s Tae Kwon Do to anyone that is thinking of enrolling in a Martial Arts class.

      I have two children enrolled at Chay’s Tae Kwon Do Academy and it has been an extremely rewarding and beneficial experience for them both. While Martial Arts, in general, is touted for its benefits; building self-confidence, self-discipline, and self defense, to name a few, Chay’s goes above and beyond.

      There are wonderful role models that are from within the school itself. Young adults that were students there and grew into leaders, and opportunities for all students to do the same. Students are encouraged to be the best that they can be in a positive way and taught that effort put in will equal the results achieved.

      I HIGHLY recommend Chay’s Tae Kwon Do.

      I’ve been meaning to send you a note ever since the tournament in March.  I wanted to tell you how much we, as a family, enjoyed the experience.  It was such a well-organized event, but more than that, it was really exciting to watch.

      As a spectator, I could sense the confidence so many of the kids carried because of tae kwon do, and that was truly neat to see.  Alex is a good athlete who has only rarely been part of winning teams for the other sports in which he participates.

      Both my husband and I have loved being able to point out to him that it’s his own individual effort and how much he chooses to give of himself that will drive (or limit) how much he can accomplish with tae kwon do.  He got a taste of that at the tournament.  I can’t even tell you how proud he was of his trophies.

      We were able to tie that back to his effort and hard work, and I can see it’s definitely driving him to keep going.  So thank you for running an excellent program.  He has truly benefitted from his participation.


      I would like to thank you and your staff for the continued quality teaching and fun atmosphere created for both of the boys. They really enjoy the school. It really helps them with their focus and understanding away from the school. Mason has begun to understand the importance of practice as a tool to better his skills. After the tournament he really got a shot of confidence that he can do better with practice.

      Thank you greatly,

      We are so happy we enrolled Justin in your classes.  The fact that you encourage a positive, competitive and safe atmosphere is remarkable.  These days no one wants to see competition for fear our kid’s feelings will be hurt. The whole process of “everyone wins” does not allow kids to feel the need to excel since they all “win” regardless of their dedication.

      The leadership and everyday skills you and the others teach create a solid foundation that is not required nor found in most schools today.  We watch in amazement how the instructors relate and interact with the younger kids.

      Watching Justin introduce himself in a confident manner looking a person in their eyes and clearly announce their name, shake hands and ask the other person to give their name was a huge stepping stone for him. Not only are the instructors good role models but they show how much hard work does pay off.

      Out of all the sports we have had our kids enrolled in, this is by far the most influential sport that enforces basic life strategies and the courage to take on any challenge life hands them.

      Thank you,
