Are you a black belt? Do you spend every Saturday morning taking your kids to a martial arts school? Where in town is the best place to learn a few moves?

EDITOR'S NOTE: Nominations are now closed. Stay tuned for the polling.

Karate. Tae Kwan Do. Jujitsu. They're all a great way to get some exercise and work off some aggression and what better place than at a karate school.

Whether you take a one-on-one class from a Master Black Belt or you drop your kids off after school for a weekly class, which martial arts studio in San Juan Capistrano is the best for learning those Karate Kid moves? Is there a school that takes beginners into account, as well as one that works with top contenders who are way beyond their first belt?

Tell us your favorite spots in the comments section below.

We'll accept nominations until July 9.

I recommend Zen Dojos in San Juan Capistrano. Their program has the hightest level of quality instruction, cleanliness and professionalism in Orange County. Their leadership programs for children and teens have enhanced the public speaking, physical conditioning, confidence and sense of well-being of several neighborhood kids. The instructors are certified, caring, invested, capable and offer unparralelled service. Highly Recommended!
