    Master Alvey's guidance took me from a novice to a competent martial artist. His teaching is a rare combination of patience, compassion, and expert-level skill. His breadth of experience allows for a personalized, varied approach to teaching martial arts; he can teach everything from formal patterns to sport fighting to practical self defense techniques. He expects the best from all of his students and sets a high standard of respect and conduct in all of his classes.

    Our family has been involved with 88 Dragons Martial Arts for five years. I have personally witnessed the physical, social, and mental benefits of a structured, professional program that caters to the individual needs of the participants. With a focus on self defense, patterns, and physical well being, my children demonstrate self confidence and motivation. Master Dennis Alvey's calm teaching style and knowledge of the sport allow each person to experience self growth. I highly recommend 88 Dragons Martial Arts.

    It has been a pleasure to train with Master Alvey to green belt level. Master Alvey has a family oriented teaching style that is flexible to the unique needs of parents and students. My son flourished in his class learning the principles of the traditional martial art Taekwondo. I personally have found it to be a great bonding experience between my son and I. Master Alvey provided a program that my son and I were able to participate in together. I enjoyed how it improved my physical and mental fitness.
