“My whole family takes classes here and we love it! No matter your age there is much to learn and fun to be had. The atmosphere is very family oriented and caring. They are great with kids and have a special Little Dragons program for the little ones. A blackbelt is a white belt that never quit!”

“My family started with West Coast Santa Teresa with KJN Joe Soltis and KJN Samantha in 2005. They were so supportive on our road to our black belt degree encouraging kids and adults alike to never give up. They really work with you individually to make sure you are ready for the next level. It is not something I ever thought I would do as an adult but with their encouragement, I am proud to say I am a black belt. My youngest is now working towards her 4th degree after 10 years! No matter what comes up she knows she can count on West Coast Santa Teresa whom she considers her second family. Thank you for everything KJN Joe and KJN Samantha.”

“I can’t say enough about Sandy’s boot camp class. I have attended for several years and went from being a couch potato with knee problems to a 2-time ironman. In fact, I’ve also done 6 half-ironmen and numerous century rides since training with Sandy. I’ve lost weight and feel terrific.I attribute a great deal of this success to Sandy’s inspiration, coaching and encouragement. She is a consummate professional in terms of her skill in creating challenging workouts. But she combines those technical skills with a personal touch, where it is very clear to all of her students that she cares about us and wants to help us meet our goals. She is a great trainer, coach, and a wonderful human being and friend.”
