Before my daughter started attending Manteca Martial Arts she was taking dance classes which she wasn’t very interested in. As soon as she started the class dojo she was very excited and now can’t wait to go to class! She loves learning new techniques. And it has really helped her overcome her shyness.
My name is Leslie Buchalter. I am the founder and director of Adventures Through Open Minds Science Club for Kids. I have a background in teaching Anatomy and Physiology at the Junior College level as well as tutoring and teaching science to young children for over 33 years. I have two children who are now 18 and 21 years old.
I would like to state the powerful influence that Sensei Mark Cameron had on both of my children during their most important formative years of ages three to thirteen. Sensei Mark taught my children martial arts for ten years. During that time he was the most important mentor in both of their lives. I not only made sure that they took martial arts class three days a week on a year round basis, but in addition, and what turned out to be possibly even more important to their personal development, were the private one on one lessons each of my children took on a weekly basis. I gave them this weekly private lesson to ensure they would have a chance to receive Sensei Marks incredible gift of guiding young children's minds to learn: 1) to respect them self as well as the laws and morals of society 2) to be kind and patient to their fellow students and 3) to seek wisdom in order to discover their dream and then have the courage to tenaciously pursue it. In the karate school each students black belt hung on a wall with the words above them "A DREAM IS A GOAL WITH A DEADLINE."
Because of Sensei Mark my son became a black belt martial arts instructor. In addition to that profession he is also going to college. The words of wisdom and training by their Sensei Mark still, to this day, have a strong influence on both of my children. For example, this year my son in a speech class took martial arts as has topic to speak on and took first place in a Bay Area public speaking competition.
I hope my words are helpful in explaining who I have come to know as one of the most wonderful teachers a child could ever have the good fortune to be taught by.
My son was enrolled with a different dojo a few years ago and he lost interest after 2 weeks, that’s pretty much the pattern that he had with everything he showed interest in. It would only last long enough for my money to be spent on registration and equipment and then DONE. Since joining MMA, it’s been very different. I see motivation, confidence, commitment, and happiness. He looks forward to training every week and I’m so proud to see him growing through this program. We love Manteca Martial Arts!
My daughter has been a student at MMA for a couple months now and she absolutely loves it. Her confidence is continuously growing in multiple areas. I have a changing schedule and Sensei Mark is very helpful in allowing us to make up classes when space allows. The learning environment is great for young kid just starting out.
Our son has been training with Manteca Martial Arts for a few months now and he really enjoys his training and takes it very seriously. He has gained strength, technique and self-confidence with each class. When I asked Jackson what he values from his training he said, “how he is gaining strength”. I really appreciate how the class reinforces good values and etiquette that will help him grow well.
My son Patrick has been a student here since sept. 2021 and he loves it . I love the overall message that the dojo stands for. Respect, and discipline. I actually went to a bday party there when we first moved here and I inquired about the dojo, he’s also got quite a few friends who attend from school. I love that they are learning to fight so they don’t have to fight. Also they just don’t get the next belt because they have passed their test, they need to be respectful at home and also be doing good in school in order to move on to the next step. Overall we are very happy with his performance and the dojo.
My kids love MMA. From my observations Sensei Mark and his team care about the children and teaching them respect, discipline, safety, awareness and motivation. They are encouraging and make a fun environment for learning. I use going to MMA as motivation to have good behavior at home. They respect all their Sensei and want to do their best. I feel my kids are more disciplined and self motivated since going to Manteca Martial Arts.
My seven year old has been attending Manteca Martial Arts for about 5 months now and he absolutely loves it. He has fun but learns a lot also. His confidence has sky rocketed. The instructors are competent, caring and really “get” kids. They make class fun while also teaching them amazing self defense skills. My son looks forward to karate every week and I am very happy I chose this dojo. Awesome. lol
I would like to encourage any parent to bring their children or teenager to Manteca Martial Arts. Our son has been attending since he was in 3rd grade and is now 9th grade high school. Sensei Mark and Mrs.Jaimie are truly amazing and deeply care for everyone. Our son has matured and grown and learned to focus and persevere. Manteca Martial Arts in my opinion is truly a investment. Thanks again to Sensei Mark, and all other Sensei’s that work along his side at his dojo. Thank You .
My son loves it at MMA. Everyone is professional, friendly, dedicated and very passionate about what they do. I totally recommend MMA to everyone and I brag about how awesome this place is, Specially the stranger danger class... so, thank you!
My daughter has been going to classes here for about a year. She has grown and learned so much. She loves coming to karate class. She started out in the little kids class and she has now grown into the bigger kids class. She is thriving here. The Sensei’s are amazing and the classes are very disciplined but have so many fun aspects to them as well. We would recommend anyone join Manteca Martial Arts.
My daughter has been training with MMA since she was 6 years old. My daughter had always been such a perfectionist and hated to lose at anything when she wa so little. Joining MMA helped her build confidence without breaking her spirit. Sensei Mark and staff are patient, knowledgable, and really good at what they do. I love that they also incorporate life lessons into their trainings during mat chats. With things that we talk about at home and go over and over in circles trying to get them to listen and understand. Its always nice when they can hear it from their Sensei’s whom they look up to as well. I can honestly say, have witnessed my daughter grow into such a confident, disciplined young lady. In this day and age in the world we live in, its also important for me to know that she feels confident, shes safe and has the skills and knowledge to know how to protect herself if needed. Its a skill she will always have. This has been an investment my husband and i do not regret.
