Because our philosophy is based on the traditional, non sport martial arts, beginners, intermediate belts and advanced belts are encouraged to develop at their own pace. At our dojo, we view our students' self-development to be far more important than the achievement of rank. We understand how intimidating starting a new activity can be, and have structured our classes so that beginners can work comfortably in a class with intermediate and advanced belts.

We have developed this Web site to provide you with information about our dojo, the martial arts we teach (Karate, Aikido, Jodo) , our philosophy and our instruction.
