I have practiced martial arts under Sifu Raffi for around 8 years now. I started (nervously) from scratch, but Sifu Raffi and all of the other instructors worked patiently and constructively to build my skills and my form. Never have I been felt down, never have I felt like I didn't belong here and never have I regretted signing up at this school. I have accumulated much knowledge and made many new friends through my experience here, and it's been completely worth every minute spent in the dojo. Also, Sensei Susan leads an incredible yoga class every week. You'll find yourself working muscles you didn't even know you had. Highly recommend.

My son has been attending Derderian for about 3 years. When I first signed him up, I didn't really know what to expect. However, the more he went, the more he enjoyed it. He started in the Tigers (younger) class just learning the basic foundations of martial arts. He has since moved up to the Dragons and is so excited and motivated to learn more and move up in the ranks. As he achieves higher belt levels and stripes, I noticed that he has gained more confidence. Its a great program and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Our daughter joined up recently and we couldn't be happier. It's a really positive and welcoming environment with extremely accomplished and competent instructors and staff. We are grateful that there is a strong focus on the core tenets of the martial arts and that promotions are earned rather than given. I would highly recommend Derderian to anyone looking to experience, or have their child experience, an authentic martial arts program with all the amazing & beneficial life lessons that come along with it. A+

My son has attended to Derderian Academy for the past three years and has loved it! The staff is extremely patient and takes their time with each individual student. They reinforce having manners, having integrity and respectfulness towards others. My husband and I would strongly recommend to Derderian Academy to any young girl or boy who is interested!
