I was a student there for about 5 years and I loved every class I went to. The times and days were very convenient. My focus and coordination became better and better without my even realizing it; a couple of years after I'd started, Master Dunlap mentioned to me how much better I'd become, not just in my focus and coordination, but with the execution of each move. He cares about the well-being and improvement of each of his students, which I find is always an excellent quality in any sort of teacher, and still manages to teach discipline. The class was well organized, both with time and space. He treats every student the same and never compares how well they do to how well other students are doing; he only keeps in mind what he thinks that student's potential is and challenges them to live up to it. He did so with me, and I'm glad he did. I made it to first degree black belt. When I was under his instruction, he allowed students at the green belt level and above to purchase weapons (nunchuks, or a bowstaff, and I happened to get both). He may still offer these, though I have no way of being certain, as I am no longer his student. Though I may not be his student any longer, I wish I were. I still have my manual, in which each move of every form is listed. I still practice some of the forms sometimes. (And it's always funny to see people's reactions when I say that I know taekwondo, especially since I look so young for my age; some will be like "Oh, man, that girl knows karate").

Let me awnser that in two parts. (1) Hell and (2) yeah! I do marital arts, so a girl who can understand that I cant go out with her because i have a TKD class is really great. I think guys dont mind if a girl knows marital arts, hell, guys will usually brag about their girlfriends if they can really fight ( like you miss second degree!). But it is intimidating for a guy to ask a girl out who does marital arts because you dont know if they have some sort of weird standard for guys (like they have to be stronger than their dad or something) but if a girl does marital arts, it is actually quite and attractive quality. It sounds to me that guys might be afraid to ask you out on a date, so try to avoid telling anyone your a black belt (most my friends do) and then when you do get a boyfriend, break him in to what you do, or you can tell him before, but try not to intimidate him. I do TKD, boxing, hapkido, iaido, kendo, taichi, but I would be intimidated by you because your a second degree! im 18 and im only a green belt (started late! lol) and in a situation like yours where your a second degree, most guys youll ever meet wont even have a black belt, so for you to have a second degree thats a wow! specially at your age. umm what style do you do, just curious. so yea, I like girls with MA experience, and in your case, youd be perfect cuz you can teach me all my forms! if only you were 17! (I dont generally date people that much younger than me and actually, you might think im weird, but I still think your a kid and you should PROBABLY date when your 16 .but thats just my suggestion, you can do whatever you want .and im a green belt so technichally, your my superior!)20 year military veteran, ITF practitioner, previous study in Kenpo, Tai Chi, and Wing Chun

My son loves taking classes at NAFTA, and I love the convenience of classes being held at PARDS (Parks & Recreation of Denham Springs). The prices are very reasonable - $45 per month with classes offered three days per week, plus discounts for siblings. There is an all-age, all-ranks class on Mondays and separate classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the younger and older students. There is a great instructor to student ratio - usually three instructors to 15 students in the younger group. Testing is held every eight weeks, with a good bit of class time devoted to being sure the students are ready to test.
