No contact info found and no contact made with them yet.

I was attacked and permanently disfigured here and the student responsible was allowed to continue training while I was unable to do so because of my facial injuries. Denying these facts (as demonstrated in the response below) won't fix my face or my life.

Master Chris changed my life. He provided me with the tools and life skills to become a better young man. He taught me the confidence needed to become a better person. I definitely look forward to training again.

I trained with Master Chris for the better part of 15 years. The last half I trained off and on. Chris brings decades of experience in teaching both martial artists and competitive athletes. I fought under the sidekicks banner in MMA, and kickboxing matches and even won an ammmy title at one point at the local arena. Master Chris lineage in Muay Thai is second to none, and it shows. He is ranked under sakasem kanthawong a 4 time world champion from Thailand. He is also highly ranked I believe with his 4 or 5 Dan under idahos most well renowned taekwondo instructor Master Sanchez. He has trained dozens of fighters both pro and amateur.Chris has an amazing ability to simplify things and works exceedingly well with children as well. When my little boy is of age I will be placing him into sidekicks lil dragons class. They focus more on movement and following directions to build a foundation for learning better technique as they get older. Sidekicks is where I grew up and holds a special place in my heart. I would not hesitate to recommend any of the classes at sidekicks.

As a learner in this industry all the instructors are very nice. They make sure that we have the equipment we need and they do very good with instructing by doing it repeatedly. Best MMA place I've been to.

Coach Chris Reyna and his team are beyond top notch. The gentleman himself is extremely an dedicated and diversely talented Martial Artist. But as a teacher and mentor he goes several steps beyond and really gives the students the best of himself so that they can reach excellence in their Martial Arts journey. Coach Chris is someone you can trust and rely on to push you to your best ability and help you find yourself in your training. I can’t possibly recommend his academy enough. If you are local to it, or even within an hour drive, or even just passing through and want a wonderful place to visit and train at, you would do very well to come here. It is worth the trip.

I started my son with Master Chris almost 9 years ago. If it wasn't for Master Chris and the gym there's no saying where my son would be now. Sidekicks is very professional, takes time to teach the students, and at times takes his personal time to be a mentor as well. I would and have recommended this gym to others.

I don't actually come here for the Martial arts. However, if this was my thing, I'd totally come here to learn. The master here was trained by my buddy's uncle. This dude is a genuine badass!
