  1. I have known and trained with Mick Jolly since the early 1990’s. He is an excellent martail artist with an extreme amount of knowlege to share. The North Bellingham – Ferndale Area is very lucky to have him open up a Great Martial Arts Training Facility!

  2. I’ve been training with Mick since about a week after the school opened, I’ve progressed to yellow belt and I’m continuing my training while having fun at the same time. It has the atmosphere that anyone can jump into and it’s always nice to see new faces.

  3. Mick Jolly is one of the few good people in this world. He represents the best qualities in a father as well as a teacher. I have just started training in January 2008, and already I have learned a great asset of tools that I may use in my future. I can never payback Mr. Jolly for the knowledge that he has given me and the worlds that he has opened up.
    You always have my thanks,

  4. My wife took our son to another school to try out before going to Karate Quest to tour the school. It didn’t take 5 minutes for us to know Karate Quest was the school we wanted to join. Mr. Jolly is an amazing teacher with great values. And thats just the beginning. If oyu are just looking to start or have been going for a while, give Karate Quest a chance to be your place of martial arts training.

  5. Karate Quest is by far the best studio I have ever seen. Unlike most places Karate quest is very spacious and there is room for alot of students with alot of space.

    Mick Jolly is by far one of the best teachers I have seen and he is very patient and understanding to individual circumstances or disabillities.

    I would recommend anyone to try Karate Quest.

  6. I love training at karate quest. Mick Jolly is one of the best trainers I have ever seen. Me being born with Cerebraul Paulsy I didn’t think I would be able to learn karate but im learning it with the help of mr. Jolly.

    He is a very patient, helpful and all around kind teacher to work with. I would recommend anyone try karate quest and I would highly recommend any disabled person to try it as well.

  7. Since Karate Quest has opened in Fall 2007, many opportunities have opened up for me in the martial arts that weren’t there before. Dad has helped every step of the way in both martial arts and in life and I thank him for all that he has done for me. Go Karate Quest!

  8. Dear Mr. Jolly

    I think that Karate Quest is the best! And that Benji And Josh are awsome friends. And also that Adam and Mckenna and don’t forget Eli and Gabe are the best instructors I ever had. They are realy good at karate and have a good sense of humor.

    your student Tom
