Lessons Will Stick For a LIfetime!

My 7-year-old son has been taking karate at Dojo's for about 9 months. It has been a very positive experience for him and for our family; he enjoys the class, takes pride in his accomplishments and is very motivated to continue in the class. He is learning not only physical skills, but also the values of honesty, respect, courtesy, friendship, focus and discipline. During each class session, The Instructor encourages the kids to practice these values at home and school as well as in class. I feel these are lessons that will stick with my son for a lifetime. The Instructor is excellent; he is obviously skilled at karate, but also has a very age appropriate teaching style and is a great role model for the kids.

I have also been participating in the bodyshaping classes since last spring. I have enjoyed the increased level of fitness, increased energy and overall feeling of well-being that I have obtained through the classes, as well as some nice friendships! The workouts are challenging, yet you can participate at your own level, building up as you go. The instructors are very motivating, positive and supportive; the workouts are always changing just enough to stay interesting and challenging. I also feel that I am setting a good example for my kids by incorporating more exercise into my routine, and they think it's cool that their mom takes class at the karate school!

We have definitely benefited from being involved at Dojo's and would encourage anyone to come out and try it!
