"We always wanted our children to study martial arts and feel very fortunate to have connected with Mr. Streicher as he opened his new school in Charlotte. It was obvious to us from the beginning that he was very experienced and enjoyed working with kids. We are so proud of our 9-year-old twin boys, Drew & Ryan, who recently received their black belts and have enjoyed watching them gain self-confidence and accomplish so much for their age. Mr. Streicher and his staff have always been patient and encouraging along their journey and have integrated courtesy & respect with their martial arts training. What awesome skills they have learned to take along in life's journey!"
