"When my five year old autistic son told me he wanted to take karate, I was very lucky that the first karate school we walked into was Tang Soo Do with Master Shintaku and his wonderful instructors. I can’t begin to express my gratitude for what they did for my son and my family. They took my shy, autistic child and met him where he was. They patiently and gently encouraged Paul to do more than he thought he could. Over time Paul became more coordinated in class, and eventually began to shed his autistic behaviors as his social anxiety was gradually replaced by self confidence. Paul is now 21 years old, a senior in college, and is thriving. I can’t thank Master Shintaku and his instructors enough for what they gave Paul, and the difference they made in his life."
"I had never been athletic on any level and I’m not particularly coordinated, but Master Shintaku and his fantastic instructors met me where I was and began to patiently push me to go beyond what I believed were my limits. What I never expected, however, was that Tang Soo Do would also shape my personal values. Alcohol had too much of a hold on me, and I decided to go into recovery. I confided in Master Shintaku and the other instructors and they were very kind and encouraging during those early days, weeks, and months of sobriety. I now have over 13½ years of sobriety, and I am very grateful to Tang Soo Do, and specifically to Master Shintaku and his very kind instructors, for being there for me during those early dark and difficult times. "
"Very grateful to Master Mike! My grandchildren are learning a new level of respect & self respect like they never have! His patience with the kids is above & beyond I could ever ask for! "
"As a previous student of Master Mike Shintaku & the amazing black belts & staff, I immediately felt the family energy in this academy. I encourage anyone with the desire to improve all aspects of their lives to become a part of this family. Another part I miss is the summer camp for the whole family (I mean the students' own) are welcomed to the beautiful Oregon coast to take outdoors classes with some of the greatest people in this family tree as far away as California come. Master Mike has been a dear friend and mentor for years. His amazing son Dylan is another cherished friendship in my life. I'm sure there are many in this family I don't know but you can trust you &/or your child will learn positive values as I did almost 19yrs ago."
