Having trained with over a dozen instructors across the East Coast and attained multiple black belts, I can't miss the opportunity to say Professor Packard is first rate! I only had the chance to train with him for a summer, but he left a lasting impression. He built on my pre existing knowledge, without prejudice. He truly loves what he does, and cares for his students. Finally, the styles he teaches are versatile, useful for a wide range of people and situations.

About 7 years ago, my (now) husband was thinking of becoming a Corrections Officer and I was wanting to lose some weight and learn to defend myself. Martial arts had always been an interest of mine, I just never had the courage to walk through the door. Back then, I had self esteem issues and zero confidence. I walked in to about a half a dozen Karate Dojos before coming to Packard's Martial Arts, but was not well received. After our first class at Packard's Martial Arts, we knew we had found the right place. Professor Packard challenged us every step of our journey. Now, John and I stand here with 2nd Degree Black Belts around our waist and we know we've earned them! Along the way, John and I have accomplished many things; buying our first home, got married and entered into promising carriers, but one thing I am very proud of is losing about 150lbs. Now, while I can't say that this is all from practicing martial arts, I can say that it has absolutely contributed towards this weight loss and helps me maintain this weight loss! Martial arts has also had a huge effect on my self confidence. I cannot speak enough on this. I had gained so many things since beginning my Martial Arts Journey and I am so glad that I took that first step to walk through the door and not settle for the first Dojo I walked into.

Packard's Martial Arts
This is the place you want you kid to learn self-respect, respect the other in addition to discipline while learning karate. My kid have been going to this place for about 4 years and he is a junior black belt now. Master Packer is a great teacher, he always takes the time to talk to the kids at the end of class as a learning tool for communication. The kids have a great respect for that! I absolute recommend it.

The Hard-to-find real thing
I had practiced martial arts before meeting Master Packard for over a decade, have had 4 teachers previously and he is by far the best, if you want the real deal watch him move.
