If you are looking for an experience that offers your children improved coordination and self-esteem, consider VMA Setauket.
The owner, and head instructor Nick Panebianco has an amazing passion towards teaching and supporting children. The children classes are well balanced with fun and provide skill instruction and drills to develop physical and mental confidence. The classes focus on teaching leadership, cardiovascular fitness, Kempo, Brazilian Jui Jitsu, and real life self defense.
The school is kept clean, and provides a comfortable parent viewing area. The viewing area includes a large screen flat television that allows you to watch your children during the class.
My children have attended other karate schools in the past, and they have not come close to the level of professionalism and quality of instruction that they have received with Sensei Nick at VMA Setauket. Sensei Nick's high energy level is consistent and contagious with the children. However, he is able to maintain a balanced level of discipline and respect. He is like the karate pied piper of East Setauket.
VMA Setauket is offering a back to school special with the first month only at $19.99 and includes a free uniform. In addition, VMA Setauket is hosting an end of summer camp from August 26th-30th. The camp hours are 10am-2pm, and VMA Setauket offers a 20% savings if you bring a friend.
