"My son has been a student of Master Pesce's since he was 6 years old. He is now 13 years old, and a 2nd degree black belt. Through the years, Master Pesce has not only been an instructor to my son, but a mentor also. Master Pesce's taekwondo training goes far beyond his vast expertise of the martial art. He has instilled in my son a sense of humility, character and honesty.
It is hard to put into words what a positive influence you have been for Trent." -Kristie
"I could say many great things about Master Pesce and Legacy Martial Arts, but at the top of the endless list is the depth of heart he brings to the studio every day. He truly loves and respects every child he works with. My son Aidan looks forward to class EVERY time and I am sure it's because he feels confident, successful and because he knows he will have fun. Finally, I also take tae kwon do, along with kickboxing classes at the studio. At 40+, I have accomplished way more than I ever imagined and kickboxing is the hardest and funnest workout I have ever done. I am completely hooked!" -Cheryl Farole-Roman, PsyD, MFT, Psychoanalyst.
"When my kids tried their first class with Master Pesce, I knew I had found a very special teacher. He is patient, kind, supportive and motivating. It is also refreshing to see how much he truly enjoys his job and enjoys the students he teaches. I feel lucky to have found a teacher like Master Pesce." -Marian Stimson mother of Josie (7) and Justin (5) Stimson
"My time with Master Pesce has been amazing, for all 7 years. He has taught me so many things from how to defend myself, to how to show respect and manners. He is great with all age groups and always gets to know each and every student he teaches. " -Trent.
