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.
