My children have not been involved in martial arts for several years now. But the things they learned at Olson’s have been so good for them. It’s not just the specific skills; it’s the persistence and respect and leadership and hard work that have helped them grow up to be the wonderful people they are.

My son has been a student here for 5 years. The Olson’s are amazing. It's a great atmosphere for kids to learn physical as well as moral lessons. I can't say enough wonderful things about them.

We have been impressed with the Olson is great to see the system in place to teach the kids not only martial arts, bus basi principles that can be applied in all aspects of life.

You two have been a mentor, instructor, friend, boss, role model and much more to me over the years… Who I am today is rooted heavily in my time spent training and teaching at the school and continues to define me as I grow….I have started to see how I have grown as a person; becoming more respectful, courteous…learning to lead, how to follow, how to work well at a job and much more.

Nani Hilbert

Our daughter has been at Olsen's since March of 2018. She started when she was 5 and has blossomed under the leadership program. She absolutely loves taking class and loves all the friends that she has made. Her confidence has soared and her self-control has improved. We love Olsen's and their programming.

C. Overby

Our 5 year old son has been enrolled at Olson’s for 8 months and I cannot express enough how impressed and grateful we are for the entire Olson family and their amazing staff. It is truly a state of the art academy that is not just about the physical training of taikwondo....oh, they are soo much more than that! They come alongside families to encourage and support us while pouring into our children and preparing them to be good stewards of this world. My 5 year old is learning about bullying, diversity, respect, perservence, courtesy, integrity, humbleness, focus, concentration, manners, patience, social skills, self control, and the list goes on and on....all while getting amazing physical training. He absolutely loves it! He loves ALL of his instructors! I love that he loves it!! He excitedly goes to class about 3 times per week, attends seminars, seasonal parties, community events, and one of my favorites (his, too) is the good grades party ...if he has good grades and attitude at school/home and a parent and teacher signs off then he gets celebrated for that at a party...what amazing encentive is that! Olson’s has also been great for us because we do not have a lot of family in this area and having their encouragement and support has been tremendous for us and our son, it gives us a great sense of belonging to the community they have built. We see this not just as another extra curricular activity but as an actual investment into his future, just as with any other formal education/training, that will make him a better student, leader, helper, friend, and citizen. We are honored to be a part of the Olson community, we are grateful for how they are making the world a more beautiful and kind place one child/parent/adult at a time.

Our son has a new level of confidence and he has a lot of pride being a part of such a great Family Focused Academy.

Andrew McCormick

We see it (the training) as an investment into our child’s future.
