My name is Ally and my two children, Nicholas (13) and Mandy (6), have been training with Buck since the summer of 2011. It was right around this time that my oldest got diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, Sensory Disorder, and ADHD and I was looking for a way to help him and learn teamwork and discipline, as well as self-defense skills. Nicholas was a loud, tantrum-throwing, unfocused 9 year old when Buck and him started working together. In the 3.5 years that have passed, my child has come so far and learned so much. He has learned how to focus on a task at hand. How to take a punch as well as he can throw one. How to assist Master Buck is highest ranking student currently studying at the dojo. But most importantly, my son has learned how to believe in himself, and never give up.
