My name is Joseph, i am currently employed at Bushi Ban international headquarters. In response to the negative comment left on this review thread i would like to say, I have been training at Bushi Ban now for 7 years, 2 of those took place in high school, and 1 after my service in the U.S. MARINES! so as a COMBAT VETERAN, i would like to state that i have trained in both the Traditional Martial arts program, the MMA program , the Grappling program and the PK program. And in all 7 years i have not ONCE been asked to BOW, WORSHIP, RESPECT, or even NOTICE the flag of Pakistan. and being a combat veteran i have felt NO disrespect toward the American flag, the country or the American people, the respect and training offered to me by bushi ban not only prepared me for the corp but for life. He Master Zulfi Respected me as an American Marine so much that he offered me a job as an instructor and in child care which has been the most pleasant experience of my life. He till this day still respects my service to the United States of America

I am oddly offended by the "flag reviewer." Diversity and cultural understanding is one of the concepts promoted by the study of martial arts and I would have thought someone interested in such training would understand that. I may be speaking out of turn but the guest who took advantage of the free trial class either a) went in with preconceived notions regarding the idea of respect, b) is an interloper who is using this rating system for personal gain, or c) does not understand the principals behind the Bushi Ban curriculum. There are many veterans, police officers, firefighters and paramedics, not to mention parents, community activists, young adults, Republicans, Democrats, rich, poor, confident, shy, every-day people who are students of Master Zulfi and his instructors. Walking through the doors one is met by a sense of peace, respect, dignity, strength and kindness. These qualities are present not only in the instructors but in the classes being taught as well. Do not underestimate the amount of work and personal commitment required of you. Not only are you expected to succeed in training but in personal growth as well.
As a single mother of a pre-teen and a child with ADD (un-medicated), both girls studying at Bushi Ban, I can unequivocally state the ENTIRE staff of Bushi Ban has had a supremely positive impact on the personal development of my children. My girls are growing into strong, smart, self confident young women, due, in no small part, to what they learn at Bushi Ban.
And just to be clear, yes, the flag of Pakistan is present. Grand Master Zulfi is proud of his heritage and rightly so. I have a German flag, does that make ME un-American?? THERE IS NO BOWING BEFORE A FLAG, THERE IS NO ??WORSHIPING? BEFORE A FLAG, THERE IS NO DISPRESPECTING A FLAG. ANY FLAG!!

{Now that the formal review is over let me just say to: Master Zulfi, Master Robinson, Sensei Shane, Miss Liz, Miss Irma, (well, EVERYONE!!)? your tireless dedication to the physical and emotional well being of my family is a debt which I can never repay. They say it takes a village and I couldn??t have picked a better one!}

We have been going to Bushi Ban since my oldest son was in elementary school. He is now in 10th grade and a black belt. His youngest brother is a red belt. It has been a wonderful experience for our family. They teach discipline, respect of others, and help build a child's self esteem. Watching my sons grow in this martial art has been amazing. Master Zulfi has always been very kind to us and we have never had any problems. They are even outstanding with our handicapped middle son. The instructors would play with him and he actually liked going, even though he is in a wheelchair! That's something you just won't find anywhere else! This is the best place for your child to learn martial arts and more. These are lessons and experience that will help them for a very long time!

My son recently participated in a belt exam and ceremony. We did the pledge to the American Flag. We have participated in the summer camp and the evening classes for over 2 years. We have not seen any bowing to another flag. We enjoy the program because the kids learn respect and martial arts. I can tell the owner and instructors take their role seriously and would not want to offend someone. We have had all good experiences at this facility. Recently I was told a rumor about an instructor. I would recommend you check the news, talk to parents of students and give the facility a good checking before making a decision. I'm not sure how someone thought the kids were expected to bow to another flag. Maybe that was then or the instructor was new. Either way we've been very pleased with our participation.

As a 2nd degree Black Belt and Martial Arts Instructor at Bushi Ban in Pasadena( we have moved to 7770 Spencer Highway) obviously i have very positive opinions on Bushi Ban as a System. I would like to comment on the review about bowing to another flag and say this is not true. Let me explain, Bushi Ban was founded in Pakistan and Pakistani flags are hung up in the school but our largest flag, by far, is the American flag this flag is also hung higher ,as dictated by American Standards, than all the other flags. Anybody who is offended by the presents of the other flag is looking to be offended. One other observation this person posted anonymously. I invite anybody with a concern on this matter to come tour our school and talk to one of our instructors

my husband and I went to visit and tried a free trial class for our son, and it was very disappointing to have children to bow to another flag that does not belong in AMERICA! (SORRY) But, its INSULT to us veterans, and to the american people......

My child has participated in the Bushi Ban program for many years. Now having obtained his 1st Degree Black Belt, he attends their summer camp program. They take the kids on field trips each week. They have tons of fun while still practicing their karate skills. This program teaches respect not only for others, but for yourself also. Check the program out.

This is a good school for martial arts. They know what they are doing and do an excellent job. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to get some exercise, have their kids learn some martial arts (and discipline), or whatever.
