To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of Ron and Linda  

Tramontano owners of West Boca Karate Center. As they have my complete

faith and backing they may use this letter as they see fit.

I have known Ron and Linda for over 20 years. I have trained under  

them since 1987 but more importantly I am proud to have become their  

friend for most of that time. When I first met them and started  

training, West Boca Karate was small but very well organized. Through  

the Tramontanos' efforts the school has grown to the success it is  

today. It takes very special personalities to run a martial art school  

and even more so to make it a success for over 20 years. Ron and Linda  

are two of these personalities.

Ron and Linda have always been honorable and professional in their  

dealings with me as both a student and later as a school owner. In  

1991 I opened a school in Colorado under Rons' guidance. Although he  

had no financial stake in my school he was always ready to provide  

advice and, when needed, fly out to lend assistance.

I would have no doubts about entering into any venture with the  

Tramontanos' as I know they would always strive to meet their  

obligations and excel in their chosen endeavor.

Please feel free to contact me at any time for further reference or to  

answer questions. I can be reached at the e-mail or phone number  

listed below.

To whom it may concern,

My name is John Foster and I have been a student at West Boca Karate since 2006.

The Tramontanos are some of the finest people it has ever been my pleasure to know. They have the distinction of bringing to our community, young and older alike, I am over fifty, the core values of honesty, respect, self discipline and service to others in a time when these qualities are most needed. The instructors under there supervision are of the highest character and uphold these high standards.

West Boca Karate, and the Tramontanos, have changed my life for the better. As an anchor to our community for over twenty years I would recommend West Boca Karate to all !

To whom it may concern:

I am writing this note so that I may share the experience my family has been fortunate enough to have with the West Boca Karate Family. The fun loving atmosphere and the demand for discipline go hand and hand. The kids respond to Master Tramontano and his "Masters to be" without hesitation.

It is a lovely family owned and operated business that we look forward to a relationship with for many years to come.

To Whom It May Concern:

West Boca Karate is the heart and soul of Boca Raton. My children started taking classes there several years ago and every year I become more impressed with the program. Master Tramontano takes an active role in the physical, social, and emotional development of each child. He teaches them to take pride in training, school, and relationships. Master Tramontano teaches them to be respectful as well as the importance of doing the "right thing." He also teaches his students valuable life lessons and embraces each child to become part of his extended family. My children look forward to each class as well as the many years of training to eventually receive their black belt and to teach there in order to give back to others.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (561) 470-1460
