Here is what people are saying about The Dojo:
"I heard about the excellent reputation there. After getting my black belt and growing bored at my other school, I decided to try something new. Honestly, I have learned more in a few weeks than I learned in three years at my other school."
"The Dojo has the best teachers in the area."
"I love the family atmosphere. There are no big egos. Everyone is very friendly and positive."
"My son has gained measurable confidence after just one month. Every morning, he asks me if today is a Dojo day?"
"It is the cleanest and nicest training facility that I have ever trained in."
"The most practical self defense techniques I have ever encountered."
"He used his voice and stood up for himself, exactly how you taught him to, and the bullying stopped. It works!"
"He says "yes ma'am" and "yes sir" to us at home now. He is way more respectful than he used to be...much less angry."
"My son's grades are up, and he no longer talks back to us. He is more respectful and gets his chores done on time. He learned this discipline at The Dojo.
The Dojo was established in the beautiful Mason, Ohio area in January of 2007.
From the moment you walk in, you will feel that this is a truly unique space, filled with energy and positive, powerful people.
The Japanese word "dojo" means training hall. Our training hall is a non-competitive, high quality school, designed to practice traditional Japanese martial arts.
Our powerful techniques are purely reality-based. From day one, you will learn blocks, throws, joint locks, kicks, pressure points, strategy, striking, as well as training the mind, various ancient and modern weaponry, and ground strategies.
Younger students from ages 4-7 will have fun working on improving focus, self-discipline, confidence, strength, stranger danger escapes, and how to develop a positive and respectful attitude in school and at home.
Youth students from ages 8-13 will learn effective self defense, anti-bullying techniques, the art of self-discipline, and confidence building that will last a lifetime.
Adults of all ages and fitness levels will learn powerful protection techniques, how to handle any type of confrontation or danger, and the leadership secrets to take control of one's life and thrive in self- reliant joy and peace of mind.
If you are looking for a fun, exciting, positive place where you can work on both your mind and your body, than The Dojo is the best place for you and your family.
Samurai and Ninja traditions evolving into powerful 21st century self protection
How is The Dojo different?
We are not a sport. We are not a sweaty gym. We do not compete for points, money, trophies or ego-based personal gain. We do not break boards or bricks. We break bad habits. Our martial art is reality-based, not "fantasy-based". From the first class, you will learn how to defend yourself both physically and mentally, all while having a great time.
Japanese Budo is extremely effective at dealing with modern-day assaults on both the mind and body.
We are so much more than just martial arts.
Begin a new and exciting journey this spring. This realistic defense method works for all ages and body types. As a bonus, you will learn how to naturally excel in all areas of life. You will learn to be more calm and focused. You will learn several new ways to deal with stress. You will lose weight and gain flexibility and strength. You will become more confident, ready to protect yourself and others, all while you advance towards a black belt degree at your own pace.
Call 513-770-0834 today, and ask Miss Barker to schedule an appointment for your first class.
