“It is no secret we love Wolchek Academy – our entire family! From our 9 year-old brown belt in the older kids class to our 5 year-old white belt in your younger kids class, all the way to my husband and me in the adult classes. We can see the positive influence of your instruction on our children: the respectful manner in which they interact with others, the focus and discipline they take into the rest of their activities and the sense of confidence and self-respect they have gained. We love the adult classes, too. The fun fitness is only one aspect of the training. I appreciate the discipline. Learning new things while continuing to hone previous skills keeps me looking forward to each class. We love the variety of classes we can take: from freestyle karate to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, from eskrima to fitness kickboxing — we’ve done them all!  Perhaps, though, my favorite part of training at Wolchek Academy is the strong bond we share as a family. You have created an environment of trust, respect and friendship for everyone involved.  Thanks for all you continue to do!

-Kirsten Leslie, Boulder mother of two children
