Victory Martial Arts in Windermere - West Orlando
Best Overall - Best for Families & Kids
The saying 'You get what you pay for' rings true when it comes to this school.
Although priced higher than other schools, you will also receive high quality classes from high quality individuals, in a family friendly environment.
You should know that there is a contract when enrolling in this school (a common practice with high quality martial arts schools), so you'll want to read carefully prior to signing.
When searching online I've found similar opinions as mine, in terms of how excellent the school is.
I've also found few negative reviews that all were relating to not being able to get out of a contract, rather than the actual school and instructors themselves.
Make sure that you read the contract, and if you choose to enroll, you choose the one that fits you and your needs the best.

Why is This Important?
Being a part of a large organization allows you to take part in their events as well as their tournaments.
Also, if you ever have to move there will most likely be a school in the city that you're moving to where you can transfer without needing to learn an entirely new system or curriculum.
Tiny Tigers: 3-5 year olds
Beginner Class: Class curriculum is designed for white belts and those who have recently graduated from white belts. A slower paced class to properly teach the fundamentals while still getting a great workout.
Adult Class: Class curriculum is tailored for adults.
Black Belt Class: Class specifically tailored for black belts, by black belts.
Family Class: Kids will be able to take class with their parents for an ultimate bonding experience
Legacy: A leadership development program specifically for younger kids and teenagers. This is the cream of the crop in the school. The ones in this program are held to a higher standard, and understand they must lead by example. They are put in a strict curriculum to become a better martial artist, leader and person.
Family Environment: If you're looking for a family friendly, supporting environment, where everyone understands the value of being the best version of themselves as martial artist and people, then look no further.
Legacy Program: The legacy program separates this school from others. Most martial arts schools just teach the actual martial art and that's it. The legacy program teaches life lessons, real life situations, how to handle difficult situations, and what it's like to be part of a team.
When you take into consideration how important these experiences are while growing and developing (physically, socially, mentally), you immediately understand the value that this program can bring.
Schedule: Open Monday - Saturday
Overall Review (In Detail)
If you're looking for the best martial arts school in the area, this is the place to be. Nowadays, schools will delegate teaching to younger instructors, but that is not the case here.
Additionally, there's a welcoming family friendly environment that allows everyone (of all skill ranges and ages) to feel comfortable practicing.
In order to enroll, you'll need to sign a contract. You can save (a lot of) money on your contract by paying the full price upfront.
Make sure to read the actual contract, and not sign for longer than you are comfortable with.
On average it takes around 3 years to become a black belt.
