I have studied martial arts for over 35 years and worked with the best of the best oil a multitude of styles. Master Terry Gay is the real deal. He has the experience, the skills and perhaps most important, the character and sincere drive of a Master. His highest goal is to bring the best to you. I highly recommend you go see him.?

Success in life is not given, it is earned. And that is what Super T has instilled in our son...that sense of commitment and a willingness to work hard toward his goals...not to mention the camaraderie he feels with fellow students.

Confidence, self esteem, fitness....this program has had a profound and positive impact!!

Super T Karate is the best thing we could have ever done with our kids. My children have grown in so many areas in their development because of what has been taught at this school. They have used many of the techniques taught in class and have carried them over to many other areas such as school, home and sports. I highly recommend Super T Karate. My son who is now 13 started at 5 years of age. Since then my daughter and husband have joined. It's great to have the feeling of a family away from home.

I've been a student for more than 10 years. The classes are challenging and the curriculum changes often so I am never bored. Master Terry keeps me motivated and interested. In addition to learning martial arts and self defense, I feel great! I also think that his young students benefit in so many ways. Super T Karate is a great school!

My entire family attends Super T Karate for martial arts training. We find the school to be professionally run. My husband joined to learn the art more intricately. I joined for the physical benefits (although I am always learning something new!) My kids have learned more about respect, discipline, determination and commitment.

I highly recommend Super T for all ages! You won't be disappointed if you give it your all.
