Master Taylor and staff at Common Ground provide a fun, yet disciplined, atmosphere for their martial arts classes and great value for the price. Our family highly recommends.

Cinda Ebner

My youngest son, who is 6, has been coming to Common Grounds now since September. We started at the recommendation of another family and I am impressed with Master Taylor and his attention to instruction that is fun and encouraging and on the level. I can see my son's confidence growing as he learns new skills and practices them. With each month he is getting more and more interested in what he is learning and doing and this is because of the excellent instruction he is getting from Master Taylor. I would recommend his academy to any family in the High Country.

CGMAA has been great for our family! Our daughter (who is not athletic) has gained confidence and is learning more than just physical skills. We are excited to enroll our 3 yo soon in a kinder-kick session! Thank you Trapper Taylor!
