    I honestly can't say enough good things about Rising Sun. They came highly recommend by a family member and The TRPD so we had no doubts it was the BEST place to send our son in the area. Our son's main instructor Sempai Torres is beyond amazing with the Kids. I am blown away that at such a young age he can handle these 5 and under aged kids like he has a masters in early childhood education and has been an educator for years. I have three young children at home and his patience, understanding, and demeanor are so impressive. My son adores him. We decided to send our son to karate because it not only helps him develop physically but helps him develop discipline, respect, and many applicable life skills. They also are TRULY teaching my son karate which is important to why we selected Rising Sun. My husband and I don't believe in everyone "getting a trophy for participation" and try to install how important hard work and commitment are in life and Rising Sun practices this philosophy as well. Everyone is so friendly, extremely passionate, and wonderful. I have enjoyed watching our son's progression and love seeing how much he enjoys it. We are very pleased with our decision to enroll him at Rising Sun and are grateful for the entire staff for sharing their passion of Karate with our son. When are twins are old enough we will definitely be sending them as well. Thank you for all you do!

    We are very thankful for joining Rising Sun Karate Academy. The instructors are truly amazing, the patience they have makes a tremendous difference in our children's lives. Brandon has built his confidence and is learning how to be respectful to others and seeing Brandon stay focused is truly amazing as he has severe anxiety. They teach our children to dedicate the time and to never give up on a goal. I look forward to seeing Brandon go further in this school. Watching my son learning and having fun to is priceless

  • John Rubin, Adult Judo Student, Rising Sun Karate Academy Testimonials

    Judo classes are always the best at Rising Sun. At first this was something to do to help a friend, then it turned into my “weekly workout”. But now it is turning into a way of life. I credit the instructors for that. There is a great blend of instructors that can relate to all types of situations, both within the teaching realm and within real life aspects. I look forward to being a member of Rising Sun for a very long time.

  • Joseph and Stephanie Mercurio, Rising Sun Karate Academy Testimonials

    Please accept this letter as that of recognition for the commitment and dedication of Sempai Lucas Torres.  Our son Vincent began at Rising Sun Karate Academy in December, 2014.  At only 3 years old, Vincent was incredibly young and eager to begin learning and studying karate.  From his very early classes Sempai Torres showed incredible persistence and a heartwarming ability to connect to young students.  He was always patient and able to redirect behavior to ensure that not only Vincent, but all of the students in the class were engaged in the skills being taught and also having fun. 

    Throughout Vincent’s training at Rising Sun Karate Academy, he has advanced and earned belt promotions while under the instruction of Sempai Torres.  While we have observed positive growth in our son, we have also noticed the same in Sempai Torres as an instructor.  Although always engaging and energetic, Sempai Torres seems to have become more comfortable on the mat with the students and his instructional techniques seem to have become more fine tuned. 

    The enormous amount of time and dedication that Sempai Torres puts into his karate and instructional training is evident and is shining through when he is teaching.  He not only is a positive role model for the young students which he instructs nightly, but also to the higher level belts who aspire to become instructors as well.

    We are proud to say that our son trains at RSKA!
