Excellent Academy! We would like to commend Mr. Dwayne Botts for the individualized instruction he offers to students. Our son has only been a member for about eight months and competed this weekend in his first competition where he received a third place medal. His confidence and overall self image has improved as well. We are so thankful to have found such a wonderful place for our son to attend. We would highly recommend Mr. Botts and Gin-Ryu Silver Dragon Martial Arts Academy.
My son has been under Dwayne Botts wing for almost 5 years... In that time he's excelled in his school work, social skills and his respect for me and his mother, not to mention adults in general! He currently holds ten First Place Positions and three Second Place Positions. Botts continues to mentor my son in all of the obove along with good sportsmanship. We couldn't ask for a better instructor for our son! Along with Dwayne ...his son Bryce and daughter Darrian have helped my son give his all every practice and every competition! Thanks you guys, you are like family.
Getting my grandson in with Dwayne Botts was the best decision I have made as far as activities. He has ADHD and Dwayne keeps him focused. He loves it and looks forward to going. He is also toning up. Happy grandchild happy grandmother.
