This is Master Cavazos from the DC Martial Arts Academy. I wanted all to know that these individuals who are writing these comments were released by me and our association in 2009 for disrespect and misconduct. They will continue to be a negative force in our community if they join you. They are drifters that cause trouble and leave a path of destruction behind them. I am sorry for their negative comments. I have spent my entire life training in many different styles of Martial Arts and will continue to give my best to our communities. I wish these individuals the best, but cannot focus on mind, body, and spirit when they are in our circle. Our classes, training, and focus is and will continue to be for the good and positive of our children of the San Antonio community. Please come visit us at our newest large 5k square ft location on 7723 Guilbeau Rd. Suite 101 next to the Constables Precinct 2 Office and our many YMCA academies in San Antonio and Boerne area. Thank you, Master Dan Cavazos. wwwdcmartialartscom

First and foremost, my time here--which was about 3 years--is considered the best and worst of my life. I came in as a white belt, not knowing anything about martial arts/taekwondo. When I left, not much had changed. The owner (I refuse to call him "master" because his credentials are in question and one must act as such in order to deserve said title) does not teach martial arts/taekwondo. He prides himself/teachings as being multi-discipline based,meaning he pulls from other arts and combines into one. Well, that would be great if the theories and tenents were taught, too. The majority of the classes were geared to ensure you could jump in to the ring and brawl. No technique was taught nor enforced. It was left up to higher belts to demonstrate to lower belts how kicks and punches were to be performed. The problem with that is with 2 or 10 different people demonstrating came 2 to 10 different techniques. There was never one set way to perform any move. The coaching was a joke, too. He allowed mid to high level belts coach while he stood on top of mats in front of the class and cheered. He never taught anyone how to coach or even how to properly spar--just brawling.

A real master would not act the way he does after a student departs his school. He's all about the money/business aspect.

The tenents of taekwondo: COURTESY, INTEGRITY, PERSERVANCE, SELF-CONTROL, INDOMIDABLE SPIRIT. Find a school that teaches not only technique, but how to be a good upstanding human.

Pros: None

Cons: way too many to list here

If you already have training in taekwondo and know anything about this sport, you will not be happy here. There are no teachings about martial arts as a whole nor any training on perfecting technique. They focus primarily on sparing. The classes are slow paced, boring and non-effetive. There are not enough well versed "instructors" to help either. The main instructor, the owner, is usally always walking around, sitting in his office or standing on a stack of mats in the front of the room. He rarely, if ever, gets on the floor with the students and shows them how the drill is to be done. The kids' class is way too big, unorganized and very chaotic.

Pros: if you live close, it's close

Cons: not good instructors, owner not qualified enough, no techniq

I would not recommend this school to anyone. The school I came from, which was out-of-state, was way better than this one. The testing is a little disorganized and everyone gets promoted. After the test, there are no certificates passed out yet for the colorbelts but maybe he changed that.

Forms are taught by an assistant instructor and not by the instructor. Their techniques are a little sloppy. You would see this if you watch them.

This school seems to be more a kickboxing school rather than a Taekwondo school. I could not and will not allow my child to attend this school. Especially since the gas station next door was robbed by an armed gunman.

To be vice chairman of AAU or Lt. Governor is a volunteer job, so remember that.

If you are looking for a WTF style, I recommend Elite Martial Arts with Grandmaster Hsu or National School of Martial Arts with Master Michael and Master Michelle.
