          My daughter has attended Elite Martial Arts for about 1 year and a half. Honestly, We have never tried another school, so we dont have a point of comparison, but I wouldnt dare try another school. Over this past year, the school continues to grow by leaps and bounds (which in and of itself is a good sign), so overcrowding and the distance from my home are the only negatives I have experienced.
          I had initially enrolled my daughter to learn self-defense, but I keep her there for the character development, above all else. Every half-hour lesson includes instruction on forms, exercise, self-defense, and also character development. Every cycle (few months), the entire school focuses on a different character trait (honesty, self-esteem, respect, etc.) which Mr. Bedford (the owner & chief instructor) addresses at the childrens level. Everyone in the school consistently teaches, rewards, and expects students to be of the utmost character and act like a black belt, which as a parent I value even more than the physical training.
          The school is also consistent in meeting with parents at least twice a year to discuss the students progress and parents satisfaction with the school and training students are getting and have always appeared receptive to my comments. Furthermore, my one-on-one conversations with Mr. Bedford give me confidence that he is not only trained in the martial arts (he is a 5th degree black belt), but is also a well trained educator that approaches each lesson and unit with similar planning and differentiation to those that I use in the GenEd classroom.
          Not only do I trust the training my daughter, age 7, is currently receiving, but am further encouraged by where she is going. It is clear that Elite Martial Arts is developing leaders through its leadership classes and legacy team, that not only receive extra training but also have the opportunity to develop their own teaching skills by assisting students in lower-level classes. This not only surrounds younger students with role models but also furthers the positive sense of community cultivated in the school by different award ceremonies and other events throughout the year.

          My children and I love the Elite Martial Arts school in Olathe. The instructors are all great with the kids, and they have learned so much about respect and personal responsibility. The Bedford's make it a point to get to know the parents and students, and make everyone feel welcome. Elite has been such a vital part of my kids life, the self esteem and growth they have exhibited has been amazing.

          My 7yo son has been attending Elite Martial Arts in Olathe for just over a year. He began in the Tiger Class, has since earned his Orange Decided belt, and just recently joined Black Belt Club. We have had nothing but positive experiences since day one. The instructors and staff are absolutely outstanding. The owner, Mr. Bedford, is a phenomenal instructor and mentor to the students. He teaches in a way that makes every kid feel confident, and capable of succeeding. The forms required to learn for belt testing are challenging yet attainable. With each testing cycle, the instructors focus on teaching a valuable life lesson, such as honesty, responsibility, etc. My son recently experienced bullying at school and employed some of the lessons he'd learned to resolve the situation. I've seen a huge improvement in his attitude, respect, maturity, and responsibility in this past year. Attending Elite Martial Arts has been one of the best choices we have made for our son.

          Our family are members of Elite Martial Arts in Olathe and we are extremely pleased with our experience and highly recommend it. Our teenage son takes instruction from the Bedfords there and we have been so happy with his training that we are going to start our younger two children and my husband as well. Its a great value for the money, and has no hidden costs or fees that are unexpected. The class sizes are really good and the times classes are offered are at convenient times almost every day of the week so it makes it easy to attend regularly. Most importantly to us, beyond exercise and physical skills, the training focuses on character building, discipline and good decision making as well. If you are looking for a great family orientated training location this is it!

          We have 5 out of our 6 children that attend and love Elite!! Now I have joined them and absolutely love it as well!! Elite is so much more than a martial arts school, it's a family. The culture the Bedfords have created is one of fun, respect and hard work. The school focuses on all aspects of a black belt attitude...it's not just about the physical skills but the character traits as well!! They meet you where you are and help you reach your full potential! Highly recommend it!!

          Nearly 2 years ago, our oldest son was gifted a free trial at Elite Martial Arts. At the time, he was struggling a great deal with his focus, discipline, self-control, and self-confidence. Elite has helped him to make tremendous gains in all of those areas! In addition, he has found a sport that he is passionate about, and he has made a number of wonderful friendswith whom he loves training.Taekwondois now a family affair for us. My husband, our younger son, and I are alsotraining at Elite. We really enjoy the opportunity to participate in family classes together, and our sons love being able topractice with their mom and dad at home. We also value the life lessons thatare taught at Elite.Instruction focuses on self-defense and bullying prevention, of course, but italso reinforces personal traits, such as honesty, integrity, self-esteem, anddiscipline,that areequally--if not more--important. To top it all off, it's a good workout!!!

          When you walk in the door at Elite Martial Arts you walk into a world where kids learn to respect others, learn to respect themselves, they are encouraged to always to their best, they learn to be gracious winners and how to accept defeat. They learn what it means to work hard and see the payoffs. They learn all of these things and so much more. Our daughter is 7 and has been training at Elite for just over 2 years now. We're thankful that we found Elite so early in her life. She learning skills that she will use the rest of her life.

          Being at Elite Martial Arts has done wonders for my family! There is no other place that we have been that provides such a positive, friendly attitude towards everyone that is there. My son has been doing martial arts for over 11 years and I have been training for almost 6. Not only is Elite beneficial for us physically, but it challenges us mentally as well. The instructors there are also very caring and patient, and willing to help anyone who needs it. I would highly recommend anyone to try out Elite Martial Arts, no matter what age you are!

          When it comes to martial arts in Olathe, there are a lot of options. I am so glad a friend recommended Elite for my son. His focus, confidence and self-esteem have improved immeasurably in the gym and out. The caring and dedicated staff helps each child find his/her potential. I'm proud of the man he is becoming and grateful for the positive real-life role models he's found at Elite.

          My son was really struggling with finding something where the reinforcement was always so positive that he wanted to participate every time and never got discouraged. He has been able to take lessons from class and apply them to other activities and school. The instructor even takes time in class to address the parents and let them know what they can expect in their child's development and how we can help them progress.

          I can't imagine a better environment for kids and adults to learn martial arts. But there is so much more to Elite Martial Arts. The Bedfords are an amazing couple who are building a great Taekwondo school built on all of the highest principles of ATA Taekwondo. They have a well trained staff and all are caring and encouraging, when you are doing well, or when you need some pointers to improve your skills. Children learn respect for the instructors and each other in a structured environment where it is safe to make mistakes and learn from them. I am an older adult student, ex-teacher, who greatly admires the way Elite is helping the children to become confident, respectful, and caring individuals. And I appreciate the respect they have for the adult students and how encouraging they are when it doesn't come easily.

          ATA Elite Martial Arts in Olathe, Kansas has become "the glue" that keeps our family working together. This is a FINE Martial Arts school. Mr. Bedford is an effective instructor, encourages challenges for healthy body and mind. He is experienced with different styles of Martial Arts. We appreciate Mr. Bedford promoting awareness in situations that extend to real life.
          We appreciate the atmosphere of the school, it is strong and welcoming. We enjoy the option of a year-round discipline where all participants perform and are always accountable.
          I am the mom in our family and I work full-time. I personally questioned my skill level = low! AND my time availability before joining the school. So, I joined three years ago and we are quite pleased enjoying a physical and mental activity for our entire family. If you are a busy parent just like all parents are... I promise it is possible, you should give it a chance!!

          We were lucky enough to be gifted a 3 month trial membership from a family member at Christmas time. My 13 year old son Lukas, had always had an interest in Martial Arts, but is very shy and was a little nervous about joining a big group, so this was the perfect opportunity. We began attending the classes at Elite and he has loved it from the beginning. Mr. & Mrs. Bedford are awesome!! They are professional and helpful and so kind. Our hope when we started would be to help Lukas overcome some of the shyness. We saw an almost immediate change. After class, he is so talkative, and animated. This is in part due to the gentle, kind way Mr. Bedford helps to build the confidence and esteem of these children. We don't live close to Elite, but wouldn't even consider going anywhere else.

          AMAZING! I couldn't be happier with the Martial Arts gym that we have chosen for our son. The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Bedford, are excellent role models to all of their families. The students work hard and learn many important life lessons. Watching my son grow both personally and as a Martial Artist in the last 18 months has exceeded my expectations. It is exactly the training he needed to help him through adolescents. He feels loved and accepted by everyone at Elite Martial Arts.

          Our son started with Elite Martial Arts over 2 years ago. In that time he has progressed in rank, been invited into Black Belt Club, and most recently into Leadership Club. We are most appreciative of his level of maturity, respect, and confidence, which we attribute to Elite training. When you join Elite, you become part of the family. Elite has social events and a Holiday party, for all to attend. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and encouraging to one another. The instructors are well trained and give all the individual attention a student needs.

          My family and I have been attending classes at Elite Martial Arts for approximately two years now. Watching the growth of our children not only in martial arts, but also in kindness, respectfulness, confidence, and an overall sense of accomplishment, has been such an amazing experience.

          The atmosphere at Elite Martial Arts is one of a kind as well. We've made life long friends with many of the other families that attend, and we all cheer each other on both in and out of class. The instructors are well-trained, qualified, certified, and great with all age groups. Classes meet Monday - Saturday, so there are several options to choose from in order to accommodate varying schedules.

          We would highly recommend Elite Martial Arts, and will continue to attend there for as long as we're able to do so.

          My family and I have been attending classes at Elite Martial Arts for approximately two years now. Watching the growth of our children not only in martial arts, but also in kindness, respectfulness, confidence, and an overall sense of accomplishment, has been such an amazing experience.

          The atmosphere at Elite Martial Arts is one of a kind as well.

          This school gets nothing less than 5 stars from my family. Owner / Instructor, Mr. Bedford, is amazing. With a deep knowledge of Taekwondo, he delivers with positive energy. Addressing each student by name at EVERY class, Mr. Bedford acknowledges individual strengths, boosting confidence. I love the way positive character traits are taught, reviewed and encouraged both within the school, but also at home, school and the community as well. If you have been searching for a Martial Arts program to boost discipline and respect, then your search is O V E R!

          Elite martial arts has given my son so much confidence. The Bedfords create a warm, positive environment where children and adults can move at their own pace with out the competitive pressures of the team sport environment that is in Johnson County. My son loved it here and already feels like he has a tyekwondo family in the 16 short weeks that he has attended.

          Elite Martial Arts has given my daughter and I a chance to do something together on a regular basis even though I am only watching. In the short four months my daughter has been enrolled, it has already become a rewarding experience and something we look forward to. Mr. Bedford is an amazing and inspiring mentor and coach for my daughter. This will teach my daughter life lessons that she will be able to benefit from forever. The school is very clean and organized and we always feel welcomed. The instructors are highly skilled and motivated for their students to learn. I would recommend Elite Martial Arts to ANYONE! We love it!

          Our 12 year old son has tried many different activities and sports. He never found anything that resonated, that he was passionate about. That is until he started taking classes at Elite Martial Arts over a year ago. This is in large part due to the owners and the instructors at the school. They teach and lead by example...teaching the students respect, compassion, kindness, discipline and self-control...to act like a black belt. We know the skills our son is developing will help him in all facets of his life. Thank you Elite!

          What a wonderful school. Top notch instruction from caring individuals. The Bedfords make all feel welcome and foster a family-oriented atmosphere that makes learning taekwondo most enjoyable. The classes are challenging yet the camaraderie expressed by all makes the hard work much fun. Highly recommended

          Elite Martial Arts is an excellent Taekwondo school to send your children! Mr. Bedford takes his time to really understand what his students need to excel. He knows each and every person that walks through that door, always has a smile on his face and is happy to see you and your child. My daughter was terrified of martial arts until we found Elite Martial Arts. Its not only a learning environment, but a fun and happy place to become a better version of yourself.

          I had no real expectations when called to enroll my son in a trial session at Elite Martial Arts. I was blown away from the very beginning, the Bedfords are fantastic. Mr. Bedford has a fantastic way with people. Calling students by name from their first class, he challenges you to be your best in a positive manner. They take a holistic approach, not just teaching martial arts, but a set of universal values that include respect, loyalty, honesty, self-control, integrity, and goals. My son was hooked after one class and I was sold on the school. My son has learned a lot, not just in martial arts, but in important life skills. I was amazed to find out that many senior students and assistants were 3 to 4 years younger than my wife and I had guessed because of how they act and carry themselves. I recommend Elite Martial Arts without reservation as I cannot speak more highly of the school or the Bedfords. Stop in and check them out, you will not regret it.

          The Tiger program is amazing! My son is small for his age. This program showed him (and me) that size does not matter! The Elite Tiger program taught him respect and discipline, while giving them the basics for martial arts and self defense! Thank you for giving him everything he needed to work his way towards his black belt. It gave him a foundation for a great future! So happy we joined Elite Martial Arts!

          My daughter has been training at Elite Martial Arts for 5 years. Taekwondo has done such an amazing thing for her. She has gained in self confidence and her attitude is not like many other 14 ear old girls. Not only is he respect for herself there, but also for her teachers and family. I attribute this to Mr. and Mrs. Bedford, they have always loved our kids as if they were their own. Elite Martial Arts is more than a school, it's a family.

          My son and I both train at Elite Martial Arts and we absolutely love it! Elite is very family-oriented and there are many families who train together, from little ones to grandparents! The quality and depth of the curriculum is incredible and the instructors are very knowledgeable and encouraging. The classes are designed to support and challenge all ability levels and build on the potential of each student. Through leadership classes, belt rank testings, and tournaments, my son and I have gained more self-awareness and confidence. We learn and practice important self-defense techniques in a safe environment. With all of that, plus strong character-building programs and a supportive atmosphere, Elite Martial Arts has been a wonderful place for us to strengthen our mental and physical capabilities and have lots of fun!

          Elite Martial arts has been one of the best decisions we have ever made for our son. The Bedfords have instilled in our son a higher sense of self-confidence, respect and leadership. He is receiving life-lessons that can be used throughout his life while also becoming able to take care of himself in the event he needs to take action. Mr. Bedford and his instructors blend humor and their own life experiences into the classroom. Every session is focused and challenging, yet very enjoyable. After 2 years of observing our son grow in this positive environment, my wife and I decided to also join the ranks of the Elite. The Bedfords have created a special family-friendly atmosphere where all are encouraged and welcomed. The camaraderie also extends beyond the classroom, where bonds of friendship are strengthened. If anyone is looking for an uplifting activity for kids or the entire family, we whole-heartedly recommend trying Elite Martial Arts!

          I am so grateful to have Elite martial arts in our lives! All five members of my family are training now and we enjoy every moment of it. Mr. Bedford is a wonderful teacher and friend and we have an enormous amount of respect for both he and his wife. My children (ages 4-9) are more respectful in all aspects of life. My oldest daughter has become better at soccer since starting her training. She is more balanced and focused on the soccer field. My younger daughter has more respect at home where she used to have behavior issues regularly. Could not be more excited to continue our journey with ATA!!
