My daughter has been training at Cheney Karate for 9 years and counting. She started as a 5 yr old in the Little Dragons program and is now a brown belt training for her black belt. Sensei Cheney is tough but fair, highly skilled and knowledgeable, maintains high standards of training, and has a deep respect for the traditions and philosophy of karate. Students of Cheney Karate truly know their stuff, and I would recommend this studio to anyone.
