"★★★★★ Master Scott and his team are top notch. We studied under him for years in California and we adored him so much that we planned our cross country trip to include two days at his new studio in Arizona - at our kids’ insistence! Scott is thoughtful, kind, an amazing instructor and has a magical way with kids. Our kids were so glad to have more time with him! He and his team are encouraging and considerate, and teach both the martial art and the philosophy of respect that goes with it. - D.C. from Google Review
"★★★★★ No Words, Just Amazing!" - L.O. from Google Review
"★★★★★ Our son has been a student of this school for a few years now. Master Scott and his team of instructors have been truly amazing. What I appreciate the most is the amount of EFFORT that is required for the students here to succeed. I have seen many people simply go from White belt to Black belts in the matter of a year simply because the school gets them in and gets them out. Taekwonkids focuses on your child and ensures they have a deep and rich understanding of the martial arts. They must pass a series of tests only after qualifying to even test for the next color belt. The instructors show patience with all ages. There is a reason why this school seems to do very well in state and national competitions. I would highly advise bringing your child to attend this school." - M.P. from Google Review
"★★★★★ If you are looking for a place that truly cares about your child and will raise them and teach them as their own, this is the place to go. Grandmaster Scott and Instructor Cage know their stuff! Money very well spent!! Highly recommend if your looking for a school that competes at a high level." - D.L. from Google Review
"★★★★★ We have had our sweet Harley Jean enjoying the instruction from Master Scott and Instructor Cage for over a year and we have been so thrilled. They take their time with each child and it has given our sweet girl such confidence. They truly make it a family affair for all of us to enjoy!" - S.H. from Google Review
"★★★★★ Master Scott provides the finest instruction for kids and families that we have encountered in any discipline since we began homeschooling a decade ago. My kids started with him in their Mountain View location and have since we traveled to Phoenix just to give our kids a chance to train with Master Scott and his staff.
Taekwon Kids teaches the whole child with an unmatched zeal, professionalism and kindness that keeps the integrated goal of a strong mind, body and spirit firmly in focus. My husband and i feel that our whole family was strengthened by our 6 year association with Taekwon Kids.
Plus, he is friendly, funny and serious. We will continue training in Mountain View and stop by to see Scott and his team every chance we get. All the stars. All the time!" - From Google Review
"★★★★★ TaekwonKids is such a fantastic school. If you have a child who has expressed interest in martial arts I couldn't more strongly recommend any place other than this to take them. From day one, Master Scott and Instructor Cage take an immense amount of time getting to know your child and tailoring the lesson to their strengths and weaknesses. There is time spent as a group and each child gets individual instruction. Teaching children anything can be difficult, but they have mastered the art of delivering technique and instilling discipline in their students. In a few short months I have seen my son's confidence grow leaps and bounds and his technique improve week by week. Highly recommend." - F.G. from Yelp Review
"★★★★★ We have been with TKK since Master Scott Sonu took over the Do-jang in Litchfield Park. We chose TaekwonKids because of the endless positive reviews on Yelp under the TaekwonKids school that Grand Master Scott lead in No. California with his brother. We are so glad we chose TKK. Grand Master Scott, Master Cage and Master William (who recently left for college) have been wonderful role models for our son these past 3 yrs. The self confidence, discipline and skills he has learned from his Masters at TKK has helped him not only in Taekwondo but in school and other sports that he participates in. TKK is Kukkiwon Certified and they often have high ranking Taekwondo martial artists fly in from Korea to teach the kids additional skills. Grand Master Scott and his team are very respectful, kind, and are Authentic Masters of Taekwondo." - G.M. from Yelp Review
"★★★★★ Amazing place! Respect, Discipline and Patience are the things that you can find at TaekwonKids Phoenix. It is a GREAT SCHOOL!!!" - C.N. from Facebook Review.
"★★★★★ Taekwonkids is more than just an incredible taekwondo school -- it is a community where your kids will learn discipline, hard work, leadership, and compassion for others. Master Scott Sonu and his brother Master Chin Sonu have taught my son and daughter taekwondo for six years in Mountain View, CA. My kids have grown to be strong and confident with the kind mentorship of the Taekwonkids. We were so sad to see Scott move to Arizona, but know that we will stay in touch because Taekwonkids is more than just a school. My kids and my family have made life long friends there." - K.M from Yelp Review
"★★★★★ I can only review Master Scott, not this studio. Master Scott recently branched off on his own after several years at a very successful taekwondo franchise in the Bay Area. Master Scott is a gem - a practitioner who really feels passionately about taekwondo, a teacher who is a strong role model for his students, and someone who really cares about kids. My son greatly enjoyed his time with Master Scott and had a great experience learning taekwondo with him. We were blessed to have this amazing instructor work with our son, and we wish him well in his new endeavor. Here's my review of Master Scott's other dojang." - G.P.C. from Yelp
"★★★★★ This school has limitless potential. Master Scott Sonu is an amazing martial artist and a very passionate instructor. He has expanded his already successful school in California to Arizona. One of the aspects I admire most about Master Scott, is that he continues to upkeep his own martial art abilities as well as continuously developing his instructors, so they can emulate his styles and teachings.
My son has been enrolled in this school prior to Master Scott arriving in AZ, and I must say he is a breath of fresh air. Never have I been so excited for my son and the students of TaekwonKids' success. I promise you, of the choices you have in the Phoenix are for martial arts, Taekwondo in particular, this school is by far your best choice." - A.M. from Yelp
"★★★★★ I have been a student at Taekwonkids for over a year and it is a very pleasant school. It is a safe environment for all ages and I highly recommend it to everybody. Master Scott Sonu is a very passionate instructor who really cares about his students and the quality of his teaching. Every class he goes very deep into detail on everything he teaches and does not shy away on telling you what you are lacking. I have learned life long skills from this school." - B.T. from Yelp
"★★★★★ We've been coming to TaekwonKids for about 7 months. Our son was once a very quiet and shy boy who struggled to speak to anyone outside of our family. The confidence he has gained since attending TKK is absolutely astounding. Master Scott and his team are simply wonderful. They are always patient, kind, and encouraging. We highly recommend TKK!!" - J.L. from Yelp
"★★★★★ I have been taking my daughter her since Master Scott took over 2 years ago. He and his instructors genuinely do care about the kids. Yes, they want to train the students to win competitions, but that is not their only motivation. They are extremely patient with the students who need extra help". - D.M. from Yelp
"★★★★★ We have had an amazing experience at TKK! Our daughter has grown so much in confidence, strength and focus since she's started. The teachers are exceptional and Master Scott is so encouraging to the kids." - L.O. from Facebook Review.
