You don’t see the phenomenal character, discipline, and goodness that exists in Mr. Marshall, his team, and school just anywhere these days. We have tried a few martial arts programs. Each individual child is valued, respected, and inspired to do their personal best. The spirit and values here exceed the others. This is the difference between just being a program and being a true service to each child, family, and our community. We are so thankful for this program!

For ourselves and our young son, we went through a few karate schools in WNC. We checked out TKD schools in Asheville, Canton, Candler, and Waynesville. The best martial art school for children and adults, in our opinion, is here in Clyde. I believe Marshall is one of the best Taekwondo teachers in our WNC community. He’s very positive, encouraging, and just really great with kids.

We love the 12 classes and six days a week that are available to children at the SafeKids USA Blue Dragon. Marshall’s training complements the music lessons and multiple team sports our son plays. We never feel pressured to do more or less. Depending on the season, our sons involvement fluctuates, but we love the way this individual sport a year round back bone to his other competitive team sports. Regardless of the schedule changes throughout the year, the multiple class times and camp, makes taekwondo a year round reality for us.

My son started Tae Kwan Do when he was about 5 years old in Mr. Marshall’s Tiny Tigers Class. He continued his martial arts training with the school until he has completed his first level black belt. The years at both my son and I spent at Mr.Marshall’s school were just great! Mr. Marshall is an excellent and enthusiastic teacher of his arts. He has a big sense of humor and is always very encouraging and honest.
I have trained in many schools since the 80s and can say with no reservation that this is one of the best karate (Tae Kwan Do) schools in the area
