"The academy is my son's second family. He joined in January of this year. He has learned excellent Taekwondo skills. He has also learned self confidence, discipline, respect, to speak clearly, to make eye contact when in a conversation and is learning important keys to become a respected adult. Thank you Mr. Velez and Ms. Modrell, from a very happy "Taekwondo Mom”. I highly recommend The Academy."

Instructors are great and dedicated to helping you not only set goals but achieve them as well. I would definitely recommend to any individual or family interested in martial arts!!!"

"I have known Mr. Velez for many years. He is a fantastic instructor, children especially. He knows how to connect with them, keep their attention, and make classes both fun and educational. My son has been taking classes for over 2 years and I have seen him grow to be disciplined, self-confident, and mature beyond his age. If you are considering martial arts for yourself or family, this is absolutely the place you want to be."
"My family and I have been training at Martial Arts Academy for 8 years, and we could not be more pleased with the experience. It is a place where students and families of a wide variety of ages, backgrounds, and skill levels come together to work hard and encourage each other. The focus of the training is not only on teaching martial arts but also on setting goals, inspiring leaders, and developing strong personal character."
- Taylor Carrell
"The academy has become a second family. What an incredible group of people and even better training."
- Chris Berry
"Martial Arts Academy is a great investment in your children and yourself. The program Mr.Velez leads is top of the line. The core of the program is not just self defense but also personal development. The team at Martial Arts Academy is very personable and have created a very inclusive environment where each student excels and grows as a martial artist. I have trained in other arts and have not met a more professional and skilled instructor as the owner/lead instructor Mr.Velez."
- Noah McKee
"My 10 year old son has been attending this academy for about 2 years now. We love everything about this place from the kind and friendly instructors to the knowledge and growth that my son has experienced over the past two years. They are great with all ages and even provide self-defense classes and camps to better your skills. As a mom, I took part in the self-defense class and learned so much. Great place and I highly recommend it for any age."
- Gail Mosley
"We LOVE this academy. The staff is very knowledgeable and great with every age. My family of 5 looks forward to class every week. It's such a unique experience to do as a family ranging from age 8-40. Every class reaches every student no matter the level of experience. Mr. Velez is truly invested in each of our successes and always encourages us to attain our goals. The life lessons learned at this academy are truly invaluable. It's the very best investment we've made that includes my whole family."
- Lisette Welscher
"This academy not only teaches you the skills of martial arts, but pushes you to be your best in and out of the academy. Even as an adult, the life skills taught here take hold in everyday life and help you achieve your goals in whatever you do. The instructors are knowledgeable, encouraging, and meet you where you're at regardless of skill level or rank. This academy is worth being a part of and I love every minute of it."
- Katie Mixson
"My 9 year old son attends here. He has developed more confidence and abilities to defend himself. I love the instructors and the personal interaction with each student. They also learn life skills such as goal setting, respect and much more. They do have to show ability - age appropriate , attendance and determination to graduate to the next belt. I highly recommend this academy to promote self defense as well as personal development."
- Melissa Smith
"I have been training at Martial Arts Academy for 3 years. Mr Velez and all of the instructors are there to help you achieve your goals. They encourage you to do your very best. It is not easy but they always have your back. I have 2 granddaughters that I will encourage to train under Mr Velez when they are old enough."
- Angela Godfrey
"My whole family works out with the Martial Arts Academy and we love it! My kids have learned discipline, self-confidence, and perseverance through Tae Kwon Do with Mr. Velez and his other wonderful trained instructors. To graduate to the next belt, kids and adults alike have to spare, break boards, and do their patterns expertly...no one is handed anything and you have to work for everything. This is another great life lesson my kids are learning. I love being able to work alongside my kids towards an end goal of a black belt! I would recommend Mr Velez and Martial Arts Academy in Owasso to ANYONE!"
- Jessica Moore
"My son has been attending here for the past couple of months and really loves it. This is definitely a place for people (males and females) of all ages!"
