Master Hama is awesome. He really cares about the students. My son loves Carolina Kicks TaeKwonDo. He is learning so much since becoming a part of the Carolina Kicks Family. We are mainly in the Matthews location but we have gotten know Master Hama well. We love his heart for TaeKwonDo and for the kids.

You cannot get anyone better than Master Hama! He comes from humble beginnings, and has worked enormously hard for every accomplishment he has received. He knows what he is doing, he knows how to teach, and he is extremely passionate about Taekwondo!

My two boys and myself have been learning Taekwondo with Master Hama since 3 years ago. Not only our skills have significantly improved, my sons’ attention and discipline have improved as well. Master Hama takes his classes and students seriously.

This program is one of the best. Master Hama treats his students with the utmost respect and instills discipline in his students.

In his program my daughter excelled. Master Hama makes learning the art of Taekwondo fun and exciting for all ages! Highly recommended.
