Here’s what the PROFESSIONALS are saying about GoForIt Martial Arts...
As a clinical social worker working with children and families for over 12 years, I always encourage parents to include extracurricular activities in the lives of their children. Extracurricular activities can be an essential component and strong contributor to healthy childhood development. One activity in particular that I recommend to families is GoForIt Martial Arts.

Martial arts is known for promoting a strong sense of self and mutual respect, teaching self control and discipline, builds moral character, is goal focused, and provides a healthy outlet for releasing energy.
As a mother of three children, I knew that martial arts would have a positive impact on my children. Therefore, my husband and I researched the many different martial arts studios in New York, and GoForIt Martial Arts stood out from the rest.

GoForIt Martial Arts has a positive impact on our children and is a positive environment for my family. The staff focuses on strengths and provides parents support in their parenting journey GoForIt Martial Arts strength based and family focused approach makes this studio unique. I am proud to be a part of the GoForIt Martial Arts family, and the traditions and values that they represent.

This is definitely a class all children need to attend. I liked the way Sensei related to the children. He spoke to them in an upbeat, yet serious manner. Very positive, striving to build character at all times.

Again, thank you for getting involved in my school. Anyone who can make such a positive impression on my kids, is welcome to return every year.

Here's What Our Recent Black Belt Graduates' Families Have to Say About Our Program
Ethan started at GoForIT Martial Arts when he was four years old going on 5 years old. He was a shy disciplined child who lacked any self-confidence.
We enrolled Ethan in karate so he could make friends and learn a new skill. His lack of self-confidence caused numerous problems in pre-k. In pre-k Ethan failed to participate in class and would not speak in front of other students.
Now, as a 10 year old, and countless classes at GoForIT Martial Arts, Ethan has the confidence we always hoped he would one day have. Ethan now has the courage to stand and speak in front other students and participate daily in class discussions. Karate has given him the confidence to conquer any obstacle he may face. Karate has taught him discipline and encouragement to excel in anything he conquers. His hard work in karate has helped him to excel in baseball. He maintains amazing balance, posture and flexibility from karate. 
Karate has also done amazing things for his mind and attitude. Karate has taught him not to get down on himself and if you try your hardest and practice anything he wants in life is possible.
  –Lynn & Eric Sorenson 
It was a few years ago when we learned about the "Be Your Best" program. We asked Matthew if he would be interested in participating in it. Without any hesitation, he responded, "Yes!" It all started from there. We will never forget Matthew's reaction when he began the program. His eyes lit up and he could not wait to show off what he learned upon his return home. Matthew yearned to learn even more, and looked forward to attending the sessions that followed. 

The excitement and look in his eyes never left. "I want to earn my black belt!" he would constantly tell us. 
"As time went on, we noticed changes in Matthew- positive ones. He began to understand that it is okay to not always do things correctly the first time. Matthew also began to learn that it is okay to make mistakes because, you can learn from them. We feel we have gone on practically every step with Matthew through his martial arts journey.

As time progressed he learned even more. Mathew strengthened his techniques, skills, and knowledge of karate. Yet, he also grew a bigger understanding of honor, discipline, and respect. The desire Matthew expressed early on to earn his black belt grew immensely. He has never let go of that goal, and we foresee him going even further. Matthew's transformation from a young boy to a young marital artist has been a phenomenal one to witness!"
–Mr. and Mrs. Michael and Stacey Driscoll
"When Romir was just four years old we found GoForIT Martial Arts. We came in and met with Sensei. He asked us what would we like him to work on with Romir, and we said his social skills. We came to class and quickly saw changes in Romir’s demeanor. Romir was beginning to emerge out of his introversion and started constructing friendships! 

The most growth, in our opinion, has been in his physical abilities…Romir is now a Black Belt and has the tools and skills to defend himself! What Sensei said to us from the outset rings true to this day, “the family who sits through practice with their child, never quits but succeeds.”  
–The Nohar Family
