Why Business Owners Love Kicksite


We have loved this software since day 1! However, due to the recent closures of dojos around the world, we feel it is imperative to share what the last month has been like for us. Kicksite has enabled us to still provide service to our students and has given us every tool needed to make it through this! We don’t know where we would be without your phenomenal software and amazing support team!


The Kicksite website is a definite benefit to our academy. Communications, posting testing results, promotions etc. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and always available to get on a call and explain or help me find the answers to my questions, highly recommended.


Kicksite is truly made for martial artists. The way it is setup allows me to run my dojo paperless and keep organized. Having a cloud based service allows me to pull up dojo information on any device too! They are constantly listening to users and improving an already awesome system because they truly care about their users. I’ll be with them for a long long time!
