See What Our Gilbert Martial Arts Parents are Saying
We have been with Sandoval karate for the last 18 months and returned after about 4 years leave. My son tried karate for about 2 years then tried other interests, but he came back to Sandoval after trying a different studio, Sandoval runs a great studio, his Staff is courteous and has an interest in all the students. They are energetic and driven to get the students to excel. They focus on the basics then drive them to advanced skills. We are so happy to be in the Sandoval family
Sandoval Freestyle Karate is just as the 5 stars states… AS GOOD AS IT GETS! I have 2 children attending the studio, ages 9 and 6, and we have been attending 2x a week for the last 9 months. My children have had to endure a tremendous amount of stressors in their childhoods and I really wanted them to have an outlet, but I never could have imagined all the amazing things this studio has done for my precious boys. Not only are their plenty of instructors…
Wow! I have to say 2011/12 has been very good years for the Sandoval’s. They definitely deserve an upgrade from 4 stars to 5 stars. I’ve watched them grow from the last time I wrote my review, from moving their main school to a new location in Gilbert to opening a brand new 2nd location in Chandler. They have also become very involved in the Arizona tournament circuit, even running their own tournament, allowing students to grow by matching their skills against other schools.

How Are Martial Arts Classes Structured?
Our Gilbert martial arts classes are divided into age groups and by belt level. Students start by first achieving their white belt and progressively work towards becoming an official member of the Sandoval Freestyle Karate Black Belt Team. In order to test for belt advancement, students must learn specific forms, katas, and self-defense moves based on their skill level. Advanced belts must also learn to use weapons, such as the staff, nunchucks, kamas, sais, Eskrima sticks, and sword.
Martial Arts Helps People with ADHD
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common and widespread childhood disorders, quoted by the National Institute of Mental Health. Every day doctors either recommend or prescribe pharmaceutical drugs for children with ADHD in an attempt to alleviate the different warning signs associated with the syndrome. Symptom such as restlessness, lack of focus, having difficulty controlling behavior, and hyperactivity are all part of ADHD. Regular exercise, a controlled environment, healthy nutritious foods, and constructive discipline support a child’s mental and physical health. Parents, today are more and more often turning to martial arts to help their children suffering from ADHD.
Younger Martial Arts Students Learn Self-control, Mutual Respect for Others & Discipline
In martial arts, students learn when they should and should not use their newfound skills. Children are taught that martial arts is not to be used for any other reason than as a last resort of self-defense from an attacker or bully, which in turn prevents the student from becoming the aggressor. Kids today are bored and with that boredom troubled kids are often a product. However, with karate, students are given a positive way to channel their natural energy and hostility into something safe and positive as well as having something constructive to do with their spare time.
