EXCEED Martial Arts held a class for children in their parking lot allowing the public to audience their instruction. What a sight to witness. Laughter to listen to with sunshine brightening the day. Smiles abound from students to instructors and even eager parents 😀

Mr. Jackson is one of the best coaches I have ever met. Strict, yet knows when to have fun. She also knows how to build champions! For example look at his kids. Both on the national team.

Master Jackson is a great coach. He knows about both the technique and traditions behind taekwondo forms, movements, and skills. His knowledge of traditional taekwondo techniques and values in addition to insightful knowledge on other martial arts results in a comprehensive learning experience for those interested in martial arts generally, in competing, or simply in indulging in a fantastic sport. I still practice martial arts on a regular basis, consistently recalling advice and instruction from Master Jackson. More importantly, I learned many core values at taekwondo that I carry with me through my personal and professional life.

I've known Mr. Jackson for most of my life, he helped teach me about Martial Arts as well as instilled within me many great qualities like good work ethic and discipline. He leads by example and is a great mentor. He may be hard on you but that's only because he wants to see you grow and succeed. When teaching, he breaks it down for you step by step, having you listen to his words and watch as he does. I highly recommend training with him at his school Exceed Martial Arts.

Master Jackson is a world class Taekwondo practitioner. He has served nationally and internationally as a coach, mentor, judge, and competitor. Whenever I trained with him, he always took the extra 5 minutes to help me understand some way to improve, usually after landing one of his controlled but deadly headshots. He is somehow positive and direct at the same time and I have seen blossom into a true leader and role model. He trains hard, helps you grow by believing in you, and is loyal to the beautiful sport and tradition of Taekwondo. Highly recommend Exceed and Master Jackson!
