Kovar's is an incredible martial arts school. The instructors are the best, and everyone is great to work with. The Kovar's blend is very well-rounded, incorporating Kosho Ryu Kenpo, Muy Thai, Jiu-Jitsu, Escrima, Tae Kwon Do, and more. The skills you learn are practical for a wide range of situations, from fighting with a stick to grappling on the ground. Knowing how to defend yourself is awesome; it makes you more confident, too. True self-defense, of course, is more than just punching and kicking; Kovar's also teaches how to avoid conflict and control your emotions. Peace, Optimism, and Humility are the central ideas. Kovar's encourages you to develop the skills to succeed in life, from defending yourself from poor health and injury, to goal-setting strategies, to perseverance. The sense of accomplishment you get when you persevere through the challenge of earning your next belt is invigorating. Kovar's has had a huge positive influence on me, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I'm currently training for my 2nd degree black belt, and I'm loving it more than ever. Thanks Kovar's, you have my vote for best martial arts school!
