All 4 of my children attend Personal Power Martial Arts-- 3 in Taekwondo and 1 in Kickboxing. I can say without hesitation that Master Zohar and his staff care deeply about their students and bring out the very best in them. Not only are my children gaining proficiency in self-defense and becoming physically fit, they are being taught life skills that will serve them well including how to deal with bullies and conflict resolution. Their increase in confidence and concentration is evident. They love Personal Power Martial Arts and it shows!

There aren't many family activities where a parent can truly be learning something for the first time at the same time as their kids, and even fewer places that can fully nurture adults and kids while doing it. My black belt wife joined my 4 year old son and I as we started our tae kwon do journey, and if asked, all three of us would say the class was geared towards us. As a teacher, a therapist, a partner, a parent, and a person, I truly can not say enough about Master Zohar, his assistants, or the things that we are all gaining from his class.

This is a great Dojo, with a great staff, all led by Master Ran Zohar - a martial arts professional who really connects with the kids, gives them positive lessons and perspectives, and helps them achieve their goals. Things are run in a courteous, respectful way -- with clear boundaries -- but it's also all very fun, relaxed, and fluid for the kids and families. Highest marks possible to this place - 5 stars.

Personal Power Martial Arts has been a wonderful experience for my boys. Ran patiently teaches them while instilling discipline and inspiring them to become the best versions of themselves. His instructors have the same dedication to the principles that Ram teaches, and everything is woven together with some humor and a lot of fun. I can’t say enough about the positive impact this dojo has had on my family. I never thought I would like martial arts so much. We love it and we will keep coming back every month. Thank you Ran! From the Chang family.

3 Tips on Bringing Your Family Together

Family time is important for a variety of reasons. However, family time does not have to involve remaining idle. There are plenty of activities families can do together that will be enjoyable and bring all members closer together. Here is a look at 3 activities that could bring your family closer together.


Martial arts

Joining a martial arts program opens a whole new world. But it is difficult to truly understand and appreciate all the nuances of martial arts without actually experiencing it firsthand. Families who take martial arts have a unique support system that allows them to fully understand the unique challenges involved with this activity. The shared experience also allows family members to practice with one another outside of actual classes and provides a common topic of conversation throughout the week. There is also a sense of accomplishment in meeting the periodic goals set in martial arts class. Families who meet those goals develop a reciprocal pride for another.

There are even spinoff activities that result from a family who practices martial arts together. Dinner after a martial arts session or even an evening snack can provide families with more time to sit down together and bond. Shopping for martial arts gear can be a family activity and watching any martial arts bouts or movies can also be enjoyed collectively.


There is no shortage of community events that are in need of volunteers. Non-profit organizations are constantly on the lookout for assistance. The good news is that many volunteer events do not require a long-term commitment. The change is also good to keep things fresh. This is a great way for families to come together and do something good for their community. On holidays, there is always a need for people to help with the distribution of food and clothing to the less fortunate.

Meanwhile, local charities are always looking for helping hands. That could be as simple as signing up for a 5k walk or spending a day interacting with seniors at a nursing home. Families can also work together to find a new volunteer project every week. That task is yet another one the entire family can embark upon together.


Riding a bike is a great way to get outside and remain active. But biking as a family can go beyond just a couple of trips around the block. There are bike trails and paths all over every city and town. Most parks also have designated areas for bikes. This allows families to get outside and do something great for their health and that applies to both the body and mind. In a world that is inundated with technology, there is no time to check your phone or computer when you are riding a bike. 

Families can be free of the technology distraction and truly enjoy the outdoors. This is an activity that can be done anywhere as families who are away on vacation can either rent bikes or bring their own along with them. It is also an activity that applies to parents with kids of all ages.


Lasting Effects

The effect of these activities has a number of other impacts. First, they are all a great stress reliever. No matter what is going on in your life, these activities allow everyone to forget their troubles, even if it is just for a little while. These activities also promote self-confidence and decrease the likelihood of behavioral problems among children. Perhaps the most optimal benefit is that family activities increase the likelihood of success for children. That is because it creates a positive atmosphere by creating both stability and support.
