|We enrolled our daughter in Grogan's Academy of Martial Arts.We saw right from the first free introductory lesson that this program would teach our child repect, self-discipline, self-control, as well as self-esteem.
This physical skill my daughter is learning will help her excel in future. We were so impressed with Sa Bom Nim Grogan that we enrolled our second daughter as well, they both are very happy and love to go to Soo Bahk Do!
Grogan's Academy of Martial Arts is about so much more than martial arts. The teaching environment is fun, safe and encompasses a host of lessons about how to be a better person. We were pleasantly surprised how complete the program really is. Sa Bom Nim Grogan is great!!

Quentin started Sa Bom Nim Grogan’s class several years ago. Since being there, he has developed maturity and grown a lot from the classes. The karate class did not make him go out and get into fights, he learned how to avoid them, yet protect himself, if needed.
Quentin was taught never to flaunt that he takes karate, many didn’t even know in his class he took it at school. Now a days I never felt comfortable letting my kids out in the streets, I still watch, but have a better feeling he knows what to do if approached for harm. I am very proud of Quentin for all his discipline and time he has put into learning the Moo Do way. Would I do recommend this class, absolutely!

Being in So Bak Doo class has made me more confident and sure of myself. I am learning how to defend myself. I also learn what modesty is and what being humble is. The classes are good exercise. Sa Bom Nim Grogan also teaches us to be good listeners for our parents.
I feel that Logan has gained confidence in his capabilities, albeit gradually, yet steadily. Soo Bahk Do and the whole atmosphere at the Do Jang has been wholesome for Logan and has generated more self-discipline in him. Your focus on family, school, and personal accountability is a welcome contrast to many of today's influences-back to the basics that are needed more than ever. Thnx, John.
"Soo Bahk Do helps me believe in what I can do and learn. Sa Bom Nim Grogan made me do my best and practice a bunch to earn my orange belt. I can do new moves and am working on new basic forms." -Logan.
Our 10 year old daughter Hannah has been attending Grogan's Academy of Martial Arts for 9 months. She is non-competitive in the physical realm by nature, and originally chose martial arts as a means to stay physically active and try something new. She has throughly enjoyed her classesw, has met new friends, and is developing confidence in her physical abilities. Students are allowed to progress at their own pace, which gives Hannah the confidence she needs to control the physical progress she makes. She has also developed and matured in handling mistakes or set backs with grace, truly an important life skill in any setting. I do not know how far Hannah will go in levels, but the journey is paying off and we are proud of her for stepping out of her comfort zone, taking a risk, sticking with it, and learning life skills along the way. I believe the Grogan's Academy of Martial Arts has helped Hannah with its clear mission and inplementation, and supportive atmosphere to meet those goals.
Martial Arts has taught me how to be confident with what I do in life. I am no longer afraid to speak in class at school.
My experience as a new beginning Martial Artist has been nothing but positive. Being one of older age than most beginners (49.5 yrs old) I find it as a great way to get back in shape as well as a new enhancement in the confidence department and self esteem. Master Grogan is just the best in personal direction, and has become a good friend and mentor.His calm demeanor yet firm and demanding at times makes the environment of learning a great and pleasant experience that I believe anyone who gave the time to try it would agree with me. Thank you Master Grogan for your teaching abilities and skills.
Thanks again, from your beginning white belt student,
Collin has been taking part in classes for 7 months and has earned his orange belt recently. Classes has helped Collin become more self confident. Collin is proud of his accomplishment is much more self assured.
Trevor has been attending Grogan's Academy of Martial Arts for 5 months now and looks forward to every class. Class is more then just learning new forms for Trevor; he is beginning to develop better self-esteem, self-control and becoming more respectful. He also thinks Sa Bom Nim Grogan stories are great and that he is funny. Trevor is very proud of all his work he does in class and tells everyone about his Soo Bahk Do class.
