“Master Thorn is an outstanding instructor and runs a superior martial arts studio. My oldest son transfered to The Edge 7 years ago and Master Thorn and his professional team brought out the very best in his martial arts skills and in personal skills, such as dicipline, perseverence and confidence. The results, enthusiasm and enjoyment were so contagious that my other son and I joined The Edge,too. Master Thorn makes karate fun and helps you to accomplish your goals no matter your skill level or age. Martial arts is more than fitness and self defense, it is about being the best that you can be. Learn from the best of the best and begin the journey.”
“Master Thorn's expertise in Karate has made him a great instructor for kids and adults. Not only do participants learn Karate, but they are taught discipline, focus, respect and are awarded for their achievments. Nathan has a great repore when working with the young kids. I highly recommend the The Edge Martial Arts Karate School in Stillwater MN.”
