At Kodokai Dojo we believe in the principles of kindness and patience. Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment that fosters self-discovery and growth.
Our classes are calm and quiet. We encourage but never yell and we understand that everyone learns differently and at a different pace.
Our classes are a great way for kids to get exercise, unplug from electronics, learn a little about Japanese culture, and to build self-esteem. We take our job as role models seriously and our self defense instruction has been proven effective. There is no better place for your child to learn self-defense.
We do not teach fighting, but we do teach self-defense- beginning on the first day of classes!
Our 40 years of teaching has produced many exceptional young martial artists who have then moved on to college with practical skills, confidence and healthy habits.
Our philosophy emphasizes self-control and self-awareness. We help kids understand that thoughtful work produces valuable results and that they have the ability to accomplish meaningful things.
Our classes are taught with patience, kindness and professionalism and this is what has kept us going for decades. We strive to provide a meaningful martial arts education that will provide life-long memories, character development and life skills.
