In all my 50+ years, I have never done a group exercise class. So when I attended my first free self-defense class at Black Belt USA, I had no idea what to expect. I.LOVED.IT. Everything was new to me, but it felt so empowering. Grand Master Dan Jakrapop Ruangrit King and Dr. King are the best teachers, and the other teachers and students are so supportive of me. I am now in my 2nd week of Muay Thai classes, and I couldn't be happier. It's awesome exercise, but more importantly, it's teaching me respect, control and is making me step outside my comfort zone. I would invite you to another free self-defense class -- they have one free class for the community every month. You won't be disappointed!

Malachi started at Black Belt USA as a timid 9 year old. He quickly gained confidence, strength, discipline and leadership. Approximately a month later Zachary (who was only 4) took a trial class and loved it. Even though most kids start around the age of 6, Master King welcomed Zachary in. We love the staff, and the family atmosphere at Black Belt USA. Master King, Dr. King, and the rest of the instructor/leadership team have made us feel so welcome and comfortable! Master King has even given Zachary a nickname ~ Gummi Bear 🐻 😂 Thank you Black Belt USA for everything you have done for us!! For those looking for a Tae Kwon Do 🥋 home, look no further! Black Belt USA will welcome you as family!

Victoria started at Black Belt USA in June of 2017 as a tiny, nervous, fresh out of kindergarten little girl. BBUSA has taught her confidence, strength, discipline and leadership. We love the family atmosphere at BBUSA and can’t wait for Victoria’s brother AJ to start next week! Master King and Dr. King, as well as the rest of the instructor/leadership team have made us feel so welcome and comfortable!

Thank you Black Belt for everything you have done for us!! 🥋 💪🏼 👧🏼 👦🏼

What an amazing environment! I started my 6 year old in Tae Kwon Do as a summer activity to burn off some energy. He enjoys it so much. Master King is so good with the kids.

I even caught the bug and started taking Muay Thai classes a few days a week. I can’t speak highly enough of this place.

Tonight, I passed my first test in Muay Thai. I was surrounded by my Black Belt USA friends, many of whom are now like family. Testing in front of all of them was an honor because everything I learned came from the people in that room. As Master King and Dr. King awarded me with my first arm-band, I was filled with so much gratitude and joy. I had worked so hard to achieve this moment, and they had been so patient and generous with me as their student. When I got home tonight, I suddenly remembered why I signed up for Muay Thai in the first place. I remembered the unfortunate event of having my back against the wall on the light rail on my way to school; a stranger cursing me and threatening me as I tried to remain calm; I couldn’t run, and no one was there to help me or back me up. That day was January 16th, 2019, and three days later, I signed up for 7 months of Muay Thai at Black Belt USA and I have loved every minute of it.

We are a community of like-minded individuals, all seeking to grow and help each other grow in the process, and I could not be more grateful for the lessons I have learned and the trials I have faced. Master King and Dr. King have helped me build outer and inner strength through the practice of Muay Thai. I have found peace in my heart despite the negative experience I had on the light rail. I carry a renewed confidence with me, not because I'm learning a martial art, but because I am happier with who I am than I was before.

Simply come and visit us. Watch a class. Meet the teachers. Feel the energy of this place and you will want to be a part of it.
