I am a mom in Dallas (New Hope) and there is a GREAT place out here called New Hope Martial Arts. The instructor is Master White and he is AWESOME with the kids. He is very into the family, respect, school, the kids grades, and the community. I highly reccommend him if you are still looking and it is not too far for you. I hope this helps as far as the Karate
The gymnastics is great here also. It is in Hiram. It is called Paulding Gymnastics. They are right behind Greystone Power and next door to Pump It Up. My daughter is going to be starting there soon. I have been there seversl times and am very impressed with them. Matter of fact, I am working on a gift to send them from one of the parents there. Check them out, I am sure you will be VERY happy.
