Ballantyne kicks has become a second home for us. Master Russell provides an equal balance of fun while learning the Tae Kwon Do moves. I have seen an improvement in my son’s ability to focus and balance (2 things he has struggled with several years of Occupational Therapy). We look forward to coming to class each week!
My 9 year old has been through the gamut of sports. Not until coming to Ballantyne Kicks Tae Kwon Do has a fire been lit. He loves Master Russell and the instructors. They foster an atmosphere of caring and encouragement while inspiring focus, respect, and discipline. It has been fantastic! So much so we’ve joined the adult classes.
After attending other martial arts studios in the Charlotte area, we have found Ballantyne kicks to be the perfect fit for our family. Master Russell strikes a perfect balance between athleticism, discipline and fun. He’s helped my two sons develop inner confidence, perseverance, and self control. Additionally, the entire Ballantyne Kick’s staff is courteous, professional and wonderful with children.
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed Master Russell’s TKD classes. It’s been a great sport for our 6 year old son who has thrived in this individual sport. His confidence at school and in new situations has improved dramatically in the 4 months he’s been attending. Master Russell has the perfect amount of focus, discipline, and fun incorporated into every class. We would not consider going anywhere else.
As a parent of two sons who attend Ballantyne Kicks, I want to thank Master Russell for the character lessons and work ethics he teaches everyday. I appreciate how Master Russell makes the classes fun for kids while teaching Tae Kwon Do skills. I could not ask for a better instructor and highly recommend this Tae Kwon Do school to all my friends.
