What People are Saying

Master Gerry is the most patient, able to balance various belt kids and maintain control. He strives to know each kids skill level and bring it up a notch while being a very positive environment. He gives more than 100 percent of himself to his students. Try a class!!!

If you’re looking for a cute powder puff place that gives stuff out, then this ain’t the place! Master Gerry makes you work for everything and just when you are ready to quit he inspires you to do more. Just come and sit in a class, you’ll be motivated to try it.

Great place to learn Tae Kwon Do, build confidence, self-esteem, respect, & responsibility. Master Gerry is an excellent instructor who knows every student & strives to bring out the best in each one. Impact Martial Arts is a place where positivity & encouragement are abundant.

My wife and I just started this December and my son started over a year ago and we love it! Master Gerry is the greatest and most patient instructor I have ever met. I recommend this school for any one of any age or skill level.

We drive over 30 miles twice a week to bring our son to this school. It is the best martial arts school in Washington! Master Gerry builds confidence in each student and has incredible patience!

My personal martial arts career spans nearly 3 decades and I have trained in multiple styles under many senseis, shihans, Sa bom nims , and masters. But there is only one that truly stands out as an amazing instructor… Master Gerry Sta.Rosa has a unique training style that just seems to bring students to incredibly high skills levels especially in sparring and street protection and his students improve at amazing rates. Very few instructors have trained national champions from scratch, Master Gerry literally consistently built national Champions year after year and in ONE year had an unheard of 17 National contact WTF/TKD sparring champions. I know have 3 nephews involved in martial arts and I am a black belt but because of the respect and knowledge of his teaching skills, training them myself or having them train with any other instructor was absolutely not an option. I would never take them anywhere but to the best and that’s what u get from Master Gerry.
