"My daughter absolutely loves training at Cutting Edge! The masters are so awesome with the kids. They are wonderful teachers that truly care about their students. It's made a tremendous difference within my daughter. I HIGHLY recommend Cutting Edge Karate."
- Elana Gichon
"We are so thankful to have found Cutting Edge Karate among all the different studios in the area. We can't recommend this place enough! The dojo is clean and the instructors are fantastic (positive but tough and not overly harsh).
They teach both the fundamentals of karate but also character lessons. Our daughter has been going for a year and half and has grown in confidence, strength and ability. Cutting Edge knows how to drive the kids to success!"
- Kat Urquico

Thank you Master Kemmer, Master Mills, and other instructors for all that you do!!! We are forever grateful!"
