My son has been involved with Mr. and Mrs. Miller (instructors/owners) since 2009 and absolutely loves it. Everyone is very helpful and it is a great activity for all young and old. My son helps during the week and also goes to his own classes. He has moved up to 2nd degree brown belt and will hopefully continue as far as he can go! It has taught him self control and discipline! Try it out for free for 2 weeks.....you or your child will enjoy it! And i can almost guarantee you will continue!

Recently joined. First off, this dojo is fun. It is a place where kids and adults can feel comfortable. There is a sense of family and belonging that is very refreshing. I am an older student and I have already made some new friends there. Mr. And Mrs. Miller and all the instructors each have their own style, so you learn a variety of techniques. They are interesting to listen to, even entertaining at times, but it is the sense of caring and personal attention they give that makes this place special.

I love training at Traditional Okinawan Karate of Kinnelon!! I've had the experience of studying Martial Arts in three other schools over the past 15 years and I am right at home in Mr. Miller's Dojo.The classes are a lot of fun as well as a great work out! The first two weeks are absolutely FREE with NO strings attached! Once you decide to join, there aren't any fees to test for your next belt rank. Mr. Miller, Mrs. Miller and Mr Becker are all extremely knowledgeable and incredibly capable! I highly recommend trying a FREE class!!! You'll learn self defense, get a great work out, and love every minute of it!!!

This dojo is not just a karate school it's a large family. My son, daughter and I are all students. Mr. and Mrs. Miller has helped so much with my kids self confidence. They have such a great way about teaching respect and discipline.

I never had any previous martial arts experience before I started and the first day I walked on the dojo floor was so nerve racking but the best thing I ever did. If you are thinking about taking a class just get off the sofa and do it. It doesn't cost anything to try a class and it will be well worth it.

My son never, ever, ever, participated in anything. He prefered to sit and watch. I let him try a 5 week program with Mr. Miller and couldn't believe that at the end of the 5 weeks he was actually doing it. He asked me to sign him up, so I did. That was 2 years ago. Although he is the only one taking karate, our family is part of the dojo community. He is learning much more than karate. He is learning to "do his best" and to "work hard". Mr. Miller also reinforces the ideals of treating others and ourselves with respect. It's been a great experience for him and I believe we'll be there for a long, long time.

This dojo is more than just a place to send your kids and money. When you sign up, you are signing up to become part of a community. There are also adult classes which are individually paced but always push you just beyond your limits. The people are great, the classes are great, and the health benefits are terrific. I am glad we chose this school.

We won a free trial over the summer, and we have been there since. Mr and Mrs Miller are great! My son is one of those kids that is not motivated by anything. He doesnt do sports or extracurricular activities, but he LOVES karate, and is focused and smiling and active! Thanks Mr Miller!

My son only began classes with Mr. & Mrs. Miller in June of this year, but we already feel like we are part of a special family.There is no pressure of competition. My son had someone to work with him all of the time to catch him up and he feels like he belongs. Mr. Miller takes the time to talk to the students and their parents. We started because William won lessons, and we have stayed. It has been helping with some behavior difficulties. Mrs. Miller always praises the kids. It is truely more than just a Karate school.

There isn't a word to describe the dedication and commitment that Mr. & Mrs. Miller place onto there students. My son has been attending for a short time but really enjoys attending class. Anyone who joins this Dojo will never be disappointed in there decision. The last thing that must be said is that Mr. & Mrs. Miller make it feel like family and for this I thank them.

I've been training with/learning from Mr. Miller since he opened the school in late 2005. This is a school where nearly every age (must be at least 5 years old) will see great benefits from the teachings of Mr. & Mrs. Miller. Both Mr. and Mrs. have different teaching styles that compliment each other wonderfully. Certainly there are many children who come to this school and its extremely obvious that they love what they are learning...but perhaps one of the reasons they seem to enjoy it so much is becasuse they don't seem to even realize that they are learning! But for "adult students" the real surprise to someone just starting to learn about karate might be how "non-confrontational" the experience is. Sure this is karate and not "ballet" but the classes are really an ideal balance of self-defense/fighting techniques,"form"/kata and conditioning. Also, there is never any question that Mr. Miller will not tolerate any out-of-control sparring and as such all 1vs1 activity is done in a very controlled and safe manner. I'm also always impressed with Mr. Miller's upbeat/positive attitude that blends his sense-of-humor with a firm instructional tone that reinforces the respectful manner demanded of all students. There is no more diverese workout than what we get at this school where every day/class is different from the one preceeding. Lastly, the versatility to be able to attend classes held 5 days per week make this a perfect environment for any adult student of karate who has an aleady busy life...outside of karate. Highly recommended...

We love Traditional Okinawan Karate! We won a raffle in July 2008 and have been going ever since. My daughter is now an Orange belt. Mr. & Mrs. Miller are wonderful instructors and have taught my daughter confidence as well as self defense. We would recommend this school to everyone!

My son has been attending since May when we won a raffle hosted at our local high school......He absolutely loves it! We have been attending 3 days a week and if time permitted....more! Mr. Miller, the head instructor and Mrs. Miller are terrific with the students and I believe they teach the students discipline,respect, self esteem and self defense! All students young and old work well together and are treated like family as soon as you walk in! A very friendly atmosphere! I highly recommend this school to anyone who may be interested in Karate!!!! You can go as often as you like and pay one price! Great deal!

Mr. Miller has changed our life. Both of my children are students, and they have both learned discipline, respect, and it has helped their self esteem. My younger son has had some difficulty with self-control, and in the six months he has been attending, the difference in his behavior is incredible. They are taught in a caring environment where the instructors know the strengths and weaknesses of every student, and challenge every child or adult to do their absolute best. If you are looking for a safe, caring environment for your children to learn skills that will help them in life as well as in the dojo, then look no further. I very highly recommend Traditional Okinawan Karate!!!

Mr. Miller, the head instructor, has an ability to challenge yet nurture his students. We are extremely happy with the classes and our daughter is never bored. She has been taking class with Mr. Miller for 3 years now and we intend to continue. We know that this training will enable her to protect herself in the future and has boosted her self-esteem and confidence with her peers. I would highly recommend this Karate school to anyone who wants their child to experience and learn the real thing. This school by far surpasses any other and that is why we travel from Rockaway. Well worth the ride.

Our granddaughter has been attending Karate classes at Traditional Okinawan Karate since the fall. We have seen a definite improvement in her self-confidence, poise, and physical skills. The head instructor, Mr. Miller has an excellent rapport with the children. He gently encourages them to improve through constructive criticism and praise for good work. He is a dedicated highly motivated professional.
Since he offers a free two-week trial, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by giving Traditional Okinawan Karate a try.

Traditional Okinawan Karate stresses discipline and fun. The head instructor, Mr Miller, a 4th degree Black Belt, teaches most of the classes, capably assisted by other students.

Children as young as age 5 are taught, encouraging class participation, leadership and an excellent work ethic. My children have just started, but they look forward to class, often going 3-4 times a week, all for the same month to month contract fee. I know the kid's focus and attention spans are increased as they learn in class.

The dojo only attends one tournament a year, this is not a tournament school. It stresses the virtues of the Isshinryu style, but it does mix in various judo techniques.

I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a karate school.

This is a Karate School i would recommend to anyone who wants to get or stay in shape. The teaching staff are friendly and really care about your well being , both physically and mentally. There is a real sense of community within this school and all the students interact well with each other. So whether you are male or female you have no need to feel intimidated the first time you walk into the dojo, you will be treated like family. I have been a student for the past 1 1/2 years and still look forward to going to class. Each class is different so you don't get bored. This school doesn't charge for belt test , and the contract is month to month so if you decide Karate isn't for you your not locked in for a year. So give this school a try, the first 2 weeks are free so you have nothing to lose.
