“When I decided to take karate, I visited every school in the area,” he said. “No one greeted me, even spoke to me. They just want to take your money and sign you up. Then I came to Louie’s studio; he stopped and recognized me as soon I walked in the door. He spent about 40 minutes talking to me. I’ve been here ever since. With Louie, it’s really about the students; it’s never about the money. This place is a hidden gem.”
One of Louie’s T’ai Chi students said, “He doesn’t do it for the accolades or the money, he teaches for the love of the art and his love for people.” Unlike most self-defense programs, he doesn’t charge more for higher belt levels and the rates are very reasonable. His students admit to feeling like they have to offer more money because his programs are worth so much since they get so much out of it.
All of the teachers in the studio are adult black-belts who share his commitment to teaching and helping students and adults learn this ancient technique safely and accurately. From parents watching their children learn karate, many have since enrolled in self-defense or T’ai Chi classes.
