I am new to the forum and thanks to all the informative posts. I know what to look for in a school. I am looking for my 7 year old daughter. Who has shown interest and asked if she could take lessons. I was just wondering if anyone had any recomendations on a school in my area. Here are 2 schools near me. And what I have heard or feel about them. Bill Chos St charles IL from what I have read they are all about the $ and try to sign you to a contract. Kyuki do Martial arts of Geneva. Closest to my home. But through my research. They are run by husband and wife. But have only been involved in MA around 5 years. Used to be students of the school they now own. Is that enough experience? Other school in my area is Mike Neil traditional Martial arts North Aurora. Dont know much about them. There are a few schools in south elgin that are reasonable travel distance from Geneva. Just hoping to get some recomendations to make my search a little easier. Being she is only 7 I know it has to be fun for her. Yet disciplined. Thanks for your help.
