We agree with Skourge. We think its SO ODD that all of the positive reviews were posted with in 2 weeks of each other and sound SO SIMILAR.
v -- All these postings are fake -- v. Giving 1 star is too high in my opinion. If you want real reviews, find the ones that have legitimate user names and more sincere posts. These reviews were done by their instructors and the people they told to create accounts. These are the type of people Talamantez Karate are. Lying, deceitful, greedy, money hungry people that constantly remind you of how horrible of a parent you are because you refuse to increase you monthly payment to them. Good job guys, creating these fake accounts and fake reviews just helps us "real" people out by you showing your true colors. How childish.
THANK YOU FOR ACCOMMODATING FOR HIS SPECIAL NEEDS.
I wanted to tell you a few things we have observed in Aiden's first few classes with you:
- He is extremely happy to be there (wanting to be there is half the battle!).
- Your teaching style is really great for all the kids, but especially for a student like Aiden. You are using techniques that many educators go to school for years to learn!
-Aidan stands a little bit taller and a little taller bit straighter as a result of being so proud to be there. Your positive and reinforcing teaching style is very confidence.
Aiden has come a long way from exclusively participating in Special Olympics to your karate school. We are so proud of him, but know that he will not be successful without a teacherlike you who is supportive, gentle, fun, encouraging, and always positive. He will have challenges that others do not, and will struggle to remember sequences of moves and proper execution of kicks, blocks, and punches, but,you will not meet a kiddo that works harder than he to maintain and keep up.
I just wanted to tell you thank you, from both my husband and myself, for accepting him, allowing him to participate, and accommodating his speical needs. I truly believe that he will be better and stronger for having joined Talamantez FamilyKarate School.
Please feel free to share this with your parents who are considering placing their childern with you.
Thank you again. You are making a difference in my child's life.

To whom it may concern,
My two sons have been training with Talamantez FamilyKarate for the past year. It has been a Great Experience for my family. They have helped my boys with better confidence and discipline. I highly recommend this Karate School to Everyone.
Love These Workouts!!.
To whom it may concern,
My son had been in spports for years and all of a sudden quit everything. He lost focus in school and grades steadily declined. I recalled attending Talamantez Academy when I was younger and remeber the positive influence they had on me. For years, I've wanted to go back but just haven't made the time to drop by.With my son doing so poorly, I figured ...this would be good for the both of us. He wasn't entirely thrilled about the idea , so I simply asked for him to give it a chance. We picked a day and dropped by. I was surprised to see that they remembered me, despite the length of time that had past. We all caught up and caught the next class. Needless to say, my son LOVED it. We both signed up and have been steadily attending for 5months. I feel great and my son has gotten his focus back.
The discipline within your classes were exactly What my son needed and the Mrs. certainly doesn't mind the few pounds I've already lost. Thanks to your workouts. Again, Thank you everyone at Talamantez FamilyKarate!
To whom it may concern,
I'd like to take the time to Thank Talamantez FamilyKarate an dtheir staff for an amazing job in showing my daughter how to have self-esteem, leadership and discipline through karate. I feel my daughter Elizabeth has become the person she would like to be by coming out of her shell and showing that she can be a leader and not a followerand with the he...lp of Mr. Talamantez she has been able to do that. I've seen such a big change in her that thiswas the best thing that I could've done for her. I felt karate was for boys but, when we saw a demonstration of their XMA Team, my daughter and I were like "WOW!!" At that point, I took the time to make an appt for my daughter and I to visit with the Staff and see what karate was all about. It has now been 3yrs since Elizabeth has been with Talamantez Karate and still going strong. Elizabeth has no intentions of giving up the possibility of giving her full potential and with the help of Mr. Talamantez and his staff, I know that can happen. Karate has been a Great Experience for her and will continue to teach her life lessons.
Thanks Talalmantez Karate for the great work you've done with Elizabeth.
We Recommend This Karate School to EVERYONE!!.
Elizabeth and I wanted to Thank You for all that Talamantez Karate has done for our son Alex. He began training with you over five years ago at the Encino Park Community Center. He was only 4 years old at the time and full of energy. We have always appreciated the time you took with Alex and the other childern to instill Qualities that are sometimes lacking in our society today (respect of your Elders, Self Confidence and the Ability of Visualization to Accomplish Great Things Throughout Life). Alex moved to the Bulverde School when it opened and began training with your son Alex Talamantez (Mister T to Us).
Over the years, We have seen our son grow not only in karate skills, but also in his life skills as Well. One of the Best examples, I can remember is from the Encino Park Halloween Festival a couple of yers ago. Mister T took Alex and some of the other students to perform and as a part of the performance they broke boards. It took Alex a couple of attempts to break his board, but he did. Afterward, Mister T interviewed each student on their performance. When he got to Alex and asked him about breaking the board, Alex took the microphone and began addressing the audience on the importance of continuing to try to reach your goals " if you don't succeed the first time... Keep trying and never give up." I was amazed that an 8 year-old child could speak to a group of 20-30 people with no fear. Another example of this was at a Graduation at the Bandera School in 2009. Alex talked to the students and parents about his struggle to break a brick during his 3rd degree black belt test and how he kept trying and eventually succeeded.
We are so pleased that Alex has been involved with Talamantez Karate and the things he has learned from yourself and Mister T. We believe that he thinks of both of you as Family and I know we do also. It is rewarding to watch our son begin to teach other young students as they first begin their journey to becoming a black belt. It is also exciting to hear Alex talk about wanting to continue on with his karate and become an instructor like yourself and Mister T. Recently, we have seen some negative things written about Talamantez Karate Online and WE FELT THE NEED TO WRITE THIS LETTER TO SHARE OUR EXPERIENCE OF ALMOST SIX YEARS WITH YOUR SCHOOL. The JOURNEY Alex has taken while becoming a BLACK BELT has been an INVESTMENT OF BOTH TIME AND MONEY. But, WE BELIEVE IT IS AN INVESTMENT THAT WILL REWARD HIM THROUGHOUT HIS LIFETIME. WE HAVE RECOMMENDED THE SCHOOL TO EVERYONE WE KNOW AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE TIME AND EFFORT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HAS PUT INTO BUILDING TALAMANTEZ KARATE.

I owe it to Master T..
I owe this review to Master T and the other instructiors.
I started my daughter in Feb. 2010. She was in kindergarten and needed to become more diciplined. She made remarkable progress at school and improved in self control. Master T asked me to try and participate with the class and after the first time I was convinced I no longer wanted to be another spectator. Every since, me and my daughter share time that I know will always be remembered. She is a on A honor roll and on her way to becoming a black belt. As for me, I am a proud parent who has gained the reassurance that my daughter is getting the best guidance for realizing long term goals and building the skills to reach them. Stretegy, charisma, passion ...is what Talamantez Karate school is about. Thank you Master T.
