I often say to friends, my family, and myself that joining the Nackord Kenpo Karate System was one of the best decisions I ever made. I came to the school wanting to learn how to defend myself and also with the hopes of getting into better physical shape from the workouts. What I have gained is so much more than I could have ever hoped for! Mr. Nackord, Jon VanCleve, and the rest of the instructors made me feel very comfortable during my first few classes. Since then, I have gained immense confidence in my ability to defend myself, I have definitely improved my health and well being through the workouts, and I have never felt more focused and driven in my life.
There is also one remarkable benefit that I did not anticipate, and that is having the opportunity to be a part of the wonderful community at our school. I have met so many great people at the school, people of all ages, and we have formed strong friendships. It truly is an amazing thing to be able to share your training with others who love it just as much as you do.
The best part of all? There is and always will be so much to learn, and I look forward to each and every visit to the school. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the NKKS. It will be a part of me for the rest of my life.
