Student Reviews

We love Mr. Miki! Joseph and Maryrose have been attending class twice a week for almost a year. Joseph had one year of previous instruction in another town. We didn't know what we were missing until we came here. Right from the free trial, and in every class, Mr. Miki has said something to the students to remind us, the parents, to think about the character formation of our children, and confirms our decision to sign up with a program where the teachers understand the reasons behind why we dedicate our time, money, and energy for our children to study martial arts. Self-defense, physical activity, and mental discipline are just the beginning. These are truly "life lesson" classes. Mr. Miki is knowledgeable, inspirational, and attentive to detail. On top of it all, our kids enjoy it! Other activities have come and gone, but karate is still a favorite!

I'm Mariah Spence and I have been in Mr. Miki`s Karate class for several weeks. In the time I have attended Mr. Miki`s school I have learned seven different kicks, stretching exercises, Self-defense, and I have so much fun while learning new things. I like karate because I like to watch my progress grow. I look forward to get further in belts and be able to much more.

Thank you Mr.Miki. I appreciate not just yours but the other Black Belts patience. I like the way You explain how and why,(not just telling the class what to do.) I notice how everyone is trying and concentrating but also smiling and enjoying the class. We look forward to coming every week.

"My husband and all three children have been students at Milan Fitness Studio for the past several years. My husband and two older children (14 and 11) have all received their black belts while at the Studio. My youngest, 6, is already an upper green belt, and practices his kicks and stretches every day with an enthusiasm which is contagious.
Mr. Miki's class is conducted in an orderly manner which is conducive to the structure that enables children to reach their full potential. One of the things I particularly appreciate about Mr. Miki's classes is that he emphasizes not only mastery of the Karate do principles and forms, but character development. He reiterates the importance of trying one's hardest, doing one's best, and setting and achieving goals for oneself. All students are encouraged to "compete" against themselves, stretching not only their physical capabilities, but enlarging their view of themselves.
Mr. Miki's methods are encouraging to the students, and they achieve a true sense of accomplishment when they promote on the regular schedule which Mr. Miki has put in place. My husband has been a lifelong devotee of Karate do; it has been my great pleasure to watch my children develop their physical fitness and character while under Mr. Miki's tutelage. The classes are nicely structured and are not overwhelming for either adults or children, and the studio offers more in-depth classes for those who choose to pursue them.
The Milan Fitness Studio, which is run so capably in Mr. Miki's hands, has my full recommendation and appreciation.

My name is Carol Hinsberger: My Grandson Brandon Inman attends Mr Miki's Class. He has been attendind for about 6 months now. Mr Miki has brought out the best in Brandon by showing him that by working hard and steady one can achieve the goals one sets for one self. Before attending Mr Miki's classes Brandon was always a little deppressed. Since his attendance in Mr. Miki's Karate school he seems much happier and no longer deppressed. In addittion Brandon's self esteem and self disipline have improved greatly. My husband and myself are very happy with the job Mr Miki is doing with our grandson and we have the up most respect for him. I belive that enrolling in one of Mr Miki's classes can only bring you positive results if your willing to put in the work it takes to achieve your goals.

I am currently in the Black Belt Club. I want to thank Mr Miki for helping me with my self confidence, increasing my strength and reminding me to just be myself.

Mr Miki always encourages me and all the students to always do our best. 

I would recommend this class to everyone! Thank you Mr Miki.

ADHD/ODD - Bianca is learning how to take/have better self control with this. Mr.Miki, I truly believe that your KARATE class is helping Bianca to channel her situation in a positive way and is helping to build stronger character in her.
Thank You, Mr.Miki,

Benjamin began martial arts over a year ago and just tested for his advanced brown belt. He is just as excited today about martial arts as he was the first day he started in the white belt class. He was very nervous that first day and then the nerves returned the first day he attended an advanced level class. He thoroughly enjoys being able to attend the advanced classes and was very excited to learn how to count to ten in Japanese. Benjamin has played baseball, basketball and soccer, but martial arts is his all time favorite! Benjamin is very competitive and always wants to do better than the person next to him. Through Mr. Miki’s teachings, Benjamin has learned that he should only worry about himself and not the others around him. Mr. Miki’s passion for martial arts is obvious and he is a great role model. He is always right there on the carpet participating with the students. From a parent’s perspective, we like that Mr. Miki’s classes are very structured. Classes always start and end on time and parents are welcome to stay and watch everything that is taught. We would recommend the Milan Martial Arts & Fitness Studio to anyone interested in martial arts.
