I've trained with Kadan for many many years and absolutely love the people. Nothing be encouraging words, HARD TRAINING, and careful instruction since the day I entered the studio which was over 10 years ago. I also love the fact that its a place where children can come and learn discipline and respect. It's too bad that a few of these "adults" don't share these qualities with the children. Kadan Martial Arts has taught me to not use the martial arts as an excuse to fight but an excuse not to, that my mind is my greatest weapon (haha its sounds cheesy I know). They also helped me to realize that having a goal and testing is good to make forward progress but to remember not to measure myself by my rank but the content of who I am. If you're interested in Martial Arts I advise you to find a studio that holds your same values to ensure a positive experience. I was interested in a friendly environment that promoted Integrity, respect, and self-discipline and found Kadan to be a great fit for me. And I hope that Kadan can be a consideration for you if you're interested in learning the martial arts, if not best of luck on finding one!

Oh and as a parting note please know that having a "certificate" means nothing. For those of you who are unsure about what the Kukkiwon does or is I advise you to follow these links. The Kukkiwon is just a piece of paper/papers that mean nothing unless you're trying flaunt your "Official rank" to your peers

Over a year and a half ago my wife became interested in studying TKD. She was interested in the aspect of self-defense as well as the physical training that TKD offers. For two months we visited various dojos in Orange County. We found Kadan was professionally operated and had outstanding instructors (Mr. Ferrer and Mrs. Ferrer and their two sons). As a retired peace officer with 34 years of experience, I was impressed by their teaching methods and their philosophy with self-defense. On two occasions, Mrs. Ferrer spent time after a class assisting my wife in methods of self-defense if attacked by a large male. Approximately one month later, my wife was stalked by a large male at the Home Depot in Westminster. When it became obvious that he was about to attack, my wife took a TKD stance ready and confident to defend herself. The man upon seeing her posture immediately left the location. I am extremely grateful to Mrs. Ferrer for assisting my wife. Although I am not a student, the entire family treats me as a friend and always welcomes me whenever I walk into their dojo.

The Kadan Martial Arts is an outstanding first class dojo. Mr. Ferrer is a silver medalist, Olympic coach, countless of nationwide awards, Mrs. Ferrer (black belt) teaches Pilate's, active in community and women's rights causes, their two sons also black belts are excellent instructors. They welcome you and treat you as family. This dojo presents a family like atmosphere with a very healthy outlook on life in both their teaching an philosophy. I highly recommend Kadan Martial Arts and feel honored to be their student.

I became involved in Kadan 10 years ago when my sister put my nephews through. I was very impressed with Master Ferrer's ability to teach, and his perfomance as a martial artist. So impressed that my daughter goes there now, and I HIGHLY scrutinize EVERYTHING that she is involved in.

Thanks to Kadan my daughter has become less shy and more self confident. She has become more aware of the need to repect others and herself. As a result of her progress and hard work we have every intention of seeing it through to black belt.

As for the price, it is definitely well worth the money.

In fact I can hardly believe the negetive review that I read earlier. From the day I met them, Mr. and Mrs. Ferrer have treated me like family. They have invited me into their home (even befor I was a customer), I have watched their children grow up (and am VERY impressed with them both), and have been welcomed with open arms on any and all visits to the Dojang. KwangJangNim is always available to talk about any questions or concerns that I may have. And I think its GREAT that the students get involved in the teaching. I operate a business myself and frequently have employees teaching other employees. When we teach something we also learn and grow. Teching allows us to practice what we already know and perfect it. Teaching is also a great way to get out of ourselves because we have to activly think about someone else!! Besides, I think that when my daughter gets to the point that she can teach others then I'll really be proud that KwangJangNim has that much faith in her.

In closing I give Kadan a 10 in all areas.

Pros: A great place to increase self confidence and learn self defense

Any school that doesn't reward their black belt students with an authentic kookiwon certificate is bogus. I observed this studio and asked questions about the programs offered and found it puzzling why there were no real certifications involved. The kick boxing is not real Muay Thai. Although Master Roland Ferrer is very talented and knows his martial arts, his wife obviously does not. I do not believe that rocks and crystals are martial art material. This is a good school for young children, as far as discipline, but for people who are genuinely interested in learning martial arts should look elsewhere.

Good little studio, where my grandson has taken lessons for over a year. Teach technique, discipline and respect to all ages. It is great to see how the children respond to good structure.

I have not trained at Kadan Martial Arts for years now and my only regret is that i havent been able to get back in and train. I've personally trained with each ofthe instructors and can gaurantee that they are all highly qualified. Master Roland Ferrer is the best in the business!

My whole family trains together, my husband, me and two kids ages 9 & 13. We LOVE it! The instructors are very caring and encouraging. I have seen huge improvements in my kids confidence at school and they are much more self-sufficient. I lost 15 pounds while learning to physically defend myself and releasing stress. The skills I developed to earn my Black Belt serve me in business as well as in life. I researched many schools before choosing this one. The quality of the curriculum and the teaching staff is outstanding. They are concerned with helping each student find his/her personal greatness. Kadan has a nurturing atmosphere and the instructors go above and beyond to help students achieve success. Thank you; Master Ferrer, Ms. Ferrer, Mr. Gomez, Mr. Nakamoto, Mr. Pulice, Ms. Lopez, Mr. Rogers, Mr. Nelson, and Mr. Arnold. You have enriched my family tremendously!
