I started my son in the tiny Tigers class about 8 months ago. He was struggling with paying attention and behavior issues at daycare. The instructor was amazing form day one. Listen to my concerns for my son and worked with him one on one and helped me find the best class for him . I definitely recommend Dunham martial arts without a doubt . I can’t Wait to see where karate takes him ❤️ More...

I should start this by saying I am NOT athletic at all. I started here two weeks ago and I hadn't exercised in months when I first started. I have to say my experience has been AWESOME. Mr. Dunham challenges you but not so much that you are discouraged and don't want to come back. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful and willing to answer any questions you have. They definitely made me feel welcomed and didn't judge me for getting winded easily. I love the cardio aspect at the beginning of class then going into learning Kempo towards the end. Everything is taught one day at a time so you have time to absorb and really practice the techniques. I can not recommend this place enough! More...

I never watch the news, but flipping channels last night, I saw you talking about the MSU employee who escaped an attempted rape. I H.A.T.E. that this happens. I'm so thankful I found you online. I lost my confidence after an incident years ago. It just kept coming back in my head and I'd have panic attacks. More...

The atmosphere of the class is amazing and welcoming. Chris Dunham does an excellent job in dividing class time between fitness training, discussing diet and life choices, and self-defense training. Definitely a perfect place for people who want to get in shape and start the learning process immediately. More...

I definitely recommend this place to anyone! Mr. Dunham takes a holistic approach to teaching so you aren’t just doing physical training you’re learning leadership, respect, self care, etc. Awesome place for kids and adults! I’ve attended a class here and the women’s self defense seminar. More...

If you are looking for an inviting, clean and friendly place this is it! I attended the Krav Maga class and was very impressed by the amount of knowledge I gained from this self defense class. I totally stepped out of my comfort zone, but by the end of class I felt more confident than I did walking in. The atmosphere was great! Very friendly and patient teachers, very important for beginners. I HIGHLY recommend Dunham's. I also have to add that Chris, the owner, personally goes out of his way to welcome you and introduce himself. That right there should speak for itself More...

I've been doing the adult Krav Maga class for month now. It is a great experience. Dunham's has a friendly and comfortable atmosphere and I've met several fun new people in my class. The owner Chris knows all of us by name and pops in to say hey almost every class. My instructor Kevin is great. He's really patient, but will also push you to give a little more than you thought you could in every class. I gave the class a try because I thought it might get me out of my comfort zone and give me an outlet while I worked through some stuff. And it paid off. The class has definitely become a highlight of my week. I'm getting back into shape and am already in a better headspace.Highly recommend!! More...

Started Krav Maga (Self-Defense) a little over a month ago and I have really enjoyed it. The class has been a great learning experience and our instructor is very patient with new people. Not only have I been able to practice how to protect and defend myself in an emergent situation, but it's also been a great way to meet new people and get some extra exercise in! Thank you, Dunham's!

My son had behavioral issues in preschool and started karate at Dunham’s Martial Arts when he was 4 years old. In about a month, he became a role model at his preschool. He did not just get energy out and learn self-defense, but he formed right living concepts and improved his focus. I do not normally leave reviews, but I am a believer in what is happening at Dunham’s Martial Arts and recommend this dojo to others. It sure helped my son! More...

I really enjoy the adult classes here. I often feel more energized after class. People in class are good. I always learn something. And though i do not think i am as outgoing as others, being there in the environment you have created sometimes is another thing outside my job that reminds me that I am a part of this world and am a part of something bigger. The environment is always positive. Although I sometimes i get distracted by work, so far it has proven that no matter how i feel coming into class, i always feel happy i came. More...

Today was the first time I have had the opportunity to be a part of Mr Dunham's class as well as my 4 yr old twins boys. I have to say I was amazed at how he was with the kids it's was amazing they loved it and can't wait to go back. I later went back for my own class only to be further impressed by his teaching and patience. Mr Dunham I would proudly recommend your school to anyone and look forward to my future in your school Ty for an amazing and fun class. More...

It’s totally cool. I really like it!

Dunham's martial arts is an amazing family owned training facility for all ages. They genuinely care about each individual that walks through the door student or not.

Dunham's Martial Arts is this fantastic world of positivity, character building, integrity and genuine work ethic. I started classes in January of 2018 with my two teen daughters. The three of us have now received our yellow belts and a whole lot more -- friendships, an excellent workout every time, and lots and lots of reinforcement of positive attitude and mindset. The girls love going every time and practice (respectfully!) on each other in between classes. They have learned to respect themselves and others, focus and block out distractions, and always try their best and improve every time. Mr. Dunham and his staff and teachers are the best! More...

My daughter has only been taking karate here for a little less than a year, but it has already made an impact. Her confidence and determination have grown a great deal. I love that each month not only has new moves to learn, but scholar themes such as loyalty, charity, persistence, etc. It really makes martial arts a way of life, not just another extra-curricular activity. My only criticism is that I wish class size were a bit smaller, but with several instructors helping, it is only occasionally a problem. More...

My husband and I can't say enough about Dunhams. We went out on a whim at the Safe and Sound event and the kids wanted to spin the wheel. They had won 2 free classes so we tried it out. The kids were hooked as was my husband and myself. The kids have leaned so much. They have learned self discipline and kicks and blocks etc, HOWEVER I love that they are also learning to be aware of strangers and what to do if that ever happened. Both Mr. Dunham and Mr. Beckwitt have a great way of teaching the kids. They get down on their level and make the kids feel comfortable. Our kids look forward to going to karate and the fun events they hold as well. We will continue with them for as long as our kids choose to. � More...

I have been meaning to write a review for a while...and well, life happens. �. Our son, Hudson has been coming to Mr. Dunhams class for 10 months and I cannot tell you how much he has improved. It has helped him SO much with staying focused on daily activities and participating in class and not being timid. He has always been well behaved, but his manners have improved tremendously. We're so proud of him and thankful for this class!! More...

My son started at Dunham’s when he was 6 years old and has been attending for just over a year now. His favorite part is going somewhere to learn new things with a group of people who, no matter the skill level, are supportive of him and this journey he is on. As a parent, my favorite thing about him attending classes is that he is learning 1)how to deal with situations with strangers 2)respect and kindness, and 3)how to push through and not give up when your motivation level might not be where it once was. The way Chris Dunham teaches to these kids is so impactful- be prepared for your kid to be challenged mentally and physically, in the best ways! More...

Our 7-year-old daughter has grown from not being able to say "hi" or even give a high five to her sensei at her first classes 2 years ago to being a brown belt and a leader in her class. She has grown in confidence, respectfulness, and self-discipline. Her classes are both fun and challenging, and she really enjoys them and looks forward to them each week. We are so thankful for the training, patience, and encouragement Chris gives her in every class. We love Dunham's Martial Arts! More...

Mr. Dunham's knowledge of martial arts and the ability to communicate that knowledge to any student, regardless of age or physical/learning ability, is like no other person I have ever met. His passion and commitment is the same when he is teaching a brand new 5 year-old student or when he is teaching an adult, working on their second degree black belt. Mr. Dunham's instructors are also extremely knowledgeable and great role models. They are positive and patient with the students, teaching the importance of respect for themselves and respect for others. Mr. Dunham and his instructors hold each individual student accountable for their own success and in turn, builds positive self-esteem and confidence. More...

My husband and I really wanted to put our 5 year old in martial arts. Having a little bit of background in martial arts, my husband wanted a place that was really good. An acquaintance told us about Dunham Martial Arts. We went to check it out and were very impressed. We've now been there about 3 months. Just in this short time, I have seen a major difference in my son. He's more respectful at home and in public. He has way more confidence in himself. He's also developing leadership skills. It's way more than what I expected out of karate. Chris Dunham has a real talent in teaching. The kids respect him, and he shows respect to them. My son always leaves feeling good about himself. We're very pleased with this school, and will recommend it to everyone we can! Update: My son is now 7, and LOVES Dunham’s school! We’ve been so impressed with the things he’s learning. It goes so far beyond punches and kicks though. He’s part of a community family here. He’s gotten to know other kids from other classes, and looks up to their good examples. I cannot say enough good things about the teachers! I’m so grateful they’re part of our lives. My husband even joined, and my daughter will too when she’s old enough. I recently took their woman’s self defense class and was so impressed. It was very informative and really fun! I highly recommend trying it out! You won’t be sorry you did. More...

My sons have been going to classes over a year, and have grown so much, in skills and with their focus. They recently made the commitment to keep going until they reach black belt, and it's because of the quality of instruction and the sense of family among. Mr. Dunham and the other instructors are excellent with the kids, very focused and structured, and it's amazing the level of respect the students have in the dojo. The students learn not just self defence and fighting skills, but also ethical and life skills, like teamwork, healthy living, and self discipline, among many others.

We have been going to Dunham’s Martial Arts for over two years now. When we started the process of choosing the right school we consider cost and class size. The cost was comparable to others in the area, but the attention and level of mentorship that my son got at this school is what helped us decide on this school over the others in the area. Dunham’s Martial Arts also makes it fun and continues to challenge my son. When he accomplishes a new skill, it helps his self esteem. The school really pushes the kids to be their best in the dojo, at home, and at school and it teaches life lessons such as self-discipline, commitment, self defense and so much more. The instructors have shown a commitment to helping our son grow up to be happy and successful and we're committed to do the same. We believe in finishing what you started and for us the journey to Black Belt is just beginning. More...

I have been attending Dunham's Martial Arts for the past several months after returning home from a semester abroad. When I initially began searching for martial arts locations in Springfield, my expectations were limited to a good workout and some routine in my life. I have dabbled in kickboxing and self defense classes, and most of my classes have provided just this. I did not expect the sessions to carry with them such positive energy, quality instruction, and diverse friendships (I must say, this is one of my favorite aspects). My beginner adult classes range in age from 13yrs to 40 somes, and I have learned a little something from everyone I have interacted with. If you are looking for a Martial Arts studio to train with, look no further. Dunham's will provide you with individualized support and, more importantly, a fun family to train along side with. I'm gonna miss y'all! More...

I joined Dunham's Martial Arts in March of 2014, because I had just turned 40 and was feeling rather old and boring. I thought martial arts would be a cool way to get in shape. Last night I earned my purple belt and I realize it is so much more than that. Not only is it a fun way to exercise and meet people but it has also taught me a lot about myself and what I am capable of. I have learned how to set and keep my own personal boundaries without hurting other people. I am much stronger physically than I was, but I'm also stronger at heart and that shows through in all aspects of my life. My work. My family. My friends. More...

Dunham's Martial Arts provides more than just teaching the art of karate. Chris and his staff do an amazing job of providing a place where everyone feels welcome no matter the skill level. They are not just teachers, they are encouragers. They help all their students to be the best they can be in all facets of their lives. Respect (of others and yourself), responsibility, self-control, and to always try your best in all things that you do, and in all areas of your life. Thank you Chris! More...

Mr. Dunham is a wonderful instructor and great with the kids. His program has helped increase our daughter's self confidence and has helped us as parents feel better about her ability to protect herself if she should ever need to!!

Although I haven't had the privilege of an official class yet I am so impressed by the message Mr. Dunham gives to our students. Mr. Dunham was a volunteer at our school Career Fair. He shared a message of respect and responsibility with 140 students that had every child motivated and attentive. I appreciate not only his message and technique with the children but his willingness to be available to the students in our community. Thank you again for your gift and being open to sharing with those who aren't your students as well. More...

Met David and Jared at the man show today and did the push up contest. Great people and super motivating! Whenever I was about to stop they would just keep me going. Highly recommend them!

My husband and I highly recommend Dunham's Martial Arts. We had been looking for an activity to get our daughter into that would not only build her confidence and social skills but would help her defend herself if ever a time came for that. So far only a few weeks into classes and we have already noticed a difference in how she acts and participates. She comes home from class wanting to do more. Mr. Dunham has amazing patience and relates well with children. We have been thoroughly impressed with every aspect of our time so far and look forward to watching our daughter achieve her goals.

This school has been so great for my son, Alex. He started as a quiet, dinky, uncoordinated 5 year old the summer before kindergarten. We were hoping to help him with his athleticism, but ended up helping him in so many other areas. Three years later, not only does he know how to defend himself, he has more confidence, focus, and respect for others than I could have ever imagined. It's so fun to see how they apply what they've learned in class to real life situations. More...

My son has learned so much. He had more confidence starting kindergarten and continues to improve his coordination & balance. Now that he just started second grade, he's really starting to work not only on the more advanced skills, he's learning so much more about discipline, team work, a healthy lifestyle, and the importance of living your best life. All instructors are great with the kids. Highly recommended! More...

My son has been going for about a month now and already I can see a difference in his behavior and attitude. Our goals for him are to learn better focus, discipline, confidence, and of course self defense. The staff is friendly and very welcoming. Mr. Dunham does a great job of teaching them the skills they need on their level and in a way they understand and retain the information. They offer several different class options to fit your schedule. Very happy to have enrolled my son and I hope to join in the coming months. More...

As a public school educator with over 30 years experience I marvel at Mr Dunham's behavioral control during the lesson.  His directions are clear and concise and his objective is known by the children.  I have had the opportunity to watch my soon to be 5 year old grandson blossom in his class.  The little guy knows he need to focus on his eyes, ears, mind, and body!  He practices daily and delights in the positive reinforcement Mr. Dunham gives him.  The children are treated with respect and he commands it in return with his, "Yes, Sir's". Any child would benefit from this type of instruction.....I highly recommend! More...
