How do I describe Aspire Martial Arts? It makes me think of walking into a friends, or family members house. You are always greeted with a smile, and often a hand shake. Followed with hello, and smiles from all of the other students and parents. As for instruction Mr. Morris is amazing and is a... See More
I have been at Aspire for 4+ years. I can say with certainty that you will not find a better instructor than Mr. Morris. Not only does he strive to provide the best instruction, he also goes above and beyond to instill rightness and respect in our children. He goes above and beyond for his students ... See More
Aspire Martial Arts is not your typical martial arts academy. It's not even your typical five-star academy. My son has been a student at Aspire for two years. The thing that strikes me most about this place is how positive it is. The owner, Mr. Johnnie Morris, sets the tone by example. He and his st... See More
How do I describe Aspire Martial Arts? It makes me think of walking into a friends, or family members house. You are always greeted with a smile, and often a hand shake. Followed with hello, and smiles from all of the other students and parents. As for instruction Mr. Morris is amazing and is always pushing both himself and the students to setting and accomplishing goals. In the past year multiple students have earned their black belt. What is unique about this, those same students are still in class helping fellow students, being an example for younger students. All of the students have all seen the progress made, tournaments, classes, and belting cycles it has taken to reach that goal. The Aspire Martial Arts Family has had a great influence on my children has been very positive. This adventure started 3 years ago for my family, and has been very rewarding.
I enrolled my granddaughter in Mr. Morris' class because of low self- esteem and shyness. She has blossomed into a self confident, happy 8 year old in just a matter of weeks. Mr. Morris is absolutely incredible in his teachings and compassion for these children. I am a huge advocate for these classes and Mr. Morris' discipline techniques. He strides in helping the children believe in themselves. A BIG 5 stars for this class!
Such a blessing to see the progression of my son in physical, and self esteem. Mr. Morris has a great technique teaching and encouraging all the kids. We love all classes and programs including the way that involve the community. Highly recommend.
By far the best program my son has ever participated in. Aspire's high standards are reflected in the atmosphere, the instruction and the interaction between staff, students and parents. Training goes far beyond the physical aspects of taekwondo; self-defense, a positive mental attitude, and good communication techniques are but a few of the life skills addressed. The highest marks go to Mr. and Mrs. Morris, owners of Aspire Martial Arts. Their dedication and care for their students is rare. This place feels like home.
So grateful we found Aspire! Mr. Morris and his instructors are so positive and patient with my son. Thank you for seeing his ADHD as a superpower!
Mr. Morris is an amazing instructor. He and his teachers are engaging. My son is growing so much in his classrooms.
This place is great for kids. Mr Morris and staff are very professional, great with kids and always go above and beyond. I would highly recommend enrolling your kids in a class and giving Aspire Martial Arts a try.
The program Mr Morris runner at Aspire martial arts is awesome. The attributes that kids are sorely lack in today's society are taught and ingrained into all his students. Not only through words but through Action. Aspire Martial Arts in Rancho Santa Diego is the place for our kids to learn how to be reasonable productive members of society. Thank you Mr. & Mrs Morris for all you do.
My grandson has been going to Aspire since it opened. The friendly, supportive, environment, great instruction and leadership skills learned make Aspire the perfect place for your child to have fun and grow confident at the same time.
Not a better place to send your child to. Mr. Morris is the best there is. I can't tell you how much my kid has improved as a person. Highly recommended!
So glad our daughter attends Aspire Martial Arts. Excellent instructor not just teaching how to defend yourself, but building character traits for future leaders. Highly recommend.
Mr. Morris is an instructor dedicated to teaching the best Martial Arts program for children and Adults. His program is constantly evolving and improving as he continually strives to pursue the best our industry has to offer! I enjoy personally working with him when I see him at our major World Martial Arts events! Keep it up sir! ~ Master Espinosa
The best fight club in San Diego! Everyone should check it out at least to use the free day pass :)
I'm a father of two, and very particular of the influences I allow upon my children. I spoke in depth with Mr. Morris prior to signing up for the community special last October. This has been a truly amazing experience for both of my children and myself. The time, energy and respect Mr. Morris brings to class and requires from his students is highly notable. Mr. Morris holds his students accountable for their actions in and out of the studio. I highly recommended visiting and watching or participating in a class. It's a life changer. Mr. Morris provides a sense of humor for both the kids and adults. Raina and Tyler love going to class.
