“My two kids have been studying karate at The Edge for a year and half. I have been very impressed with Master Thorn and all of the instructors at the school. My kids have gotten great skills in karate that have transfered to both other sports and after school activities. They have greater balance and strength for snow boarding, greater flexibility and endurance for running and baseball. They even have greater confidence performing in others for theater performances. The skills they are learning today at The Edge are going to continue to help them throughout their lives.”
“Master Thorn is one of the most dedicated, reliable individuals you could hope to meet. He is as consistent as clockwork, and he pushes the envelope to attain the highest levels of achievement for himself and those he works with. He's an encouraging leader and mentor and is second to none in his field of work in our community. There is simply no one else we would even consider to take his place and it's my honor to endorse him here.”
