We have been under Mike's instruction for nearly a year. My husband and daughter are both completely engulfed in karate, and they are excelling with Sensai. I highly recommend this dojo, if you want to learn AND have a great time!

My son has always wanted to join a karate class. It was fate when one day he won two weeks free at a carnival. It was also the perfect timing being that he was at a new school and was falling behind in class. He didn't have many friends and was sad due to family issues. I didn't know what to expect at Guido's Martial Arts Academy but I was hoping for the best. The way everyone welcomes you right from the very beginning is incredible. They made us feel right at home. Overall, my sons behavior and school work have improved drastically. Even the level of respect that he shows to everyone is just amazing. He has gained so many new friends and now doesn't want to leave the dojo!! I am so thankful I found this place! It's a hidden gem for sure!!

For the past six years, Sensei Mike Guido has been this amazing and powerful influence in my son's life. He has helped to mold and guide him into the fabulous young man that he is through the unique curriculum taught at Guido's Martial Arts Academy.

Not only does Sensei Mike teach martial arts; he teaches the kids about integrity, respect, discipline and to give back to the community. His positive attitude is infectious and the environment is relaxing.

And parents, he teaches adults as well and the lessons he teaches to the young ones can and does help the adults in the personal and professional lives.

In my opinion, this is THE dojo to check out! There are many amazing students there; a testament to this man's tireless efforts.

Guido's Martial arts is unlike any martial arts academy you will encounter. Two of my children attend and it has changed them for the better. They are more confident, respectful, and responsible. This dojo does not just teach karate; it is a family-centered, community involved, and character building dojo. At this dojo I have come to realize that the instructors are not just concerned about teaching karate, but they are dedicated to all aspects of their students, inside and outside of the dojo. This is hands down the best investment that you can make for your children. See you soon!

Two of my boys have been attending for less than 3 months and I have seen so much improvement in their confidence and behavior in such a short time. Not only are they benefiting from the physical activity, focus, and learning respect, but the mentorship Sensei Guido provides is invaluable. Having someone else who speaks positivity, encouragement, and hard work into their lives is so important. He reinforce so many values we teach at home, and having the coolest person they know to back up parents' values, is worth it's weight in gold.

My kids have only been going a couple weeks, but I am already inspired to leave a review. This place rocks. The instructors are positive, helpful, and encouraging while also finding a healthy balance of teaching discipline, personal responsibility, and life skills. They are all about hard work and earning your way, but the kids have so much fun at the same time. I'm so grateful to have help teaching my children these important values. And they know their martial arts. This place is the real deal. The proof can be found looking at the students that are working towards their black belt- impressive skills, but even more impressive ATTITUDES. I'm so glad to have found this place. Thank you Guido's family.

A very impressive first time class for my four year old daughter. She was assigned a buddy to help her thru the class and let me tell you, her buddy ( Dylan- maybe 9 or 10) was respectful and very supportive. Moreover, I think everyone under this roof encouraged each other whether a student or trainer. There is no doubt that I will recommend Guido’s Martial Arts Academy to any parent that wants their child to grow in self-confidence, be respectful, gain physical agility and build strong bonds with their peers.
