"...I can't say enough good things about the staff at Ingram's, and I would highly recommend that the training, the self-confidence, the discipline and self-esteem that Austin has acquired over the past two years speaks for itself."
"Ingram’s has become a family to us all and my children have flourished during their time there. The positive, family oriented atmosphere; their willingness to go the extra mile; the love and care that all of the staff offer and the fact that they are training world class athletes to succeed just adds up to a complete package! One of the best decisions we’ve ever made."
"When I first started, I was weak, shy and needed self confidence. The first day I was here, I felt like I belonged. My teachers, Sensei Jen, Sensei Cindy, Sensei John and Sensei Chad made me work as hard as I could."
"I would like to thank you for all you taught me in my younger and more wild days about discipline and focus. They have really helped me in my life and I am glad to see you still teach those same disciplines to younger generations. We need it in this day and age. Thanks again for everything!"
"I cannot express enough what a blessing Ingram's after school program has been for my son and our family. The peace of mind of knowing that my son will be provided with safe and reliable transportation from school to karate is priceless! Ingram's has provided my son the best karate training that money can buy and I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable and friendly staff. I'm happy and proud to be part of the Ingram's karate family!"
"I want to thank the Ingram family and all the Senseis and hope they know how much they have changed the lives of many people by dedicating themselves to helping children learn the true meaning of karate, family karate and what it takes to be a true black belt. Thank you Ingram's Karate. I hope you know how much you are a part of our life."
