If you are looking for a great work out, you found it. I signed up for the kickboxing class with a few friends as a kickstart for getting into shape for my wedding. Everyone at the studio are at different fitness levels and everyone leaves feeling like they got a great workout. Master Kevell is a great motivator while still being very friendly. Rhode Island Taekwondo is a great studio and I would recommend it to anyone.
