Sensei: My aim is to make sure that all students learn how to defend
themselves whether they are 3 years old and just starting out in life or
an adult who may want to learn to defend themselves in general life! I
do insist that all my students work hard in class especially higher
grade and older students that would like to try for their Black Belts.
Discipline and control are the key to great students.

Most of our classes are separated into 2 classes for the correct age groups
We give you a little letter telling you what your child will be doing in the class and if we can take some pics to show you afterwards! Don't worry all children are treated with the up most care!! This being said we do allow a 5 minute settling in period if your child needs it.
Most of our halls have a glass section in the door you can look through - but try not to let your child see you!
We pay special attention to each individual person and help them achieve their belts...especially students going for Black Belt...we never just push them through we let them take their time to build on their work and confidence until they and we feel ready for them to become a Black Belt.
