The Dojo - Self-Protection Martial Arts School
Holiday Reminder: The school will be closed Saturday (8/30) and Monday (9/1) for the holiday weekend.
This Friday night (8/28) from 5:00-7:30 is leadership class. Sign up at the front desk or call Miss Barker at 513-770-0834.
8/25 - This week, we are all discussing:
The importance of attitude within the family.
Mr. Norcross asks: "Why do we often treat a stranger at the store with more manners and respect than we treat those we live with??"
We will discuss how to better respect all who provide and care for us. How to use positive, proper speech and actions to promote peace and joy in the home. __________________________________________________

Cincinnati Press: Lineage and Lore Story.
Our youth students rock!
A great job to all those who participated in the 5 hour seminar with Mr. and Mrs. Hayes. We covered a few unarmed defenses against a knife attacker, several high level technique counters, and how to subtly re-position and use balance-taking to win in a self-defense confrontation. What a great and positive energy we all created once again.
We are always learning new and exciting things here at The Dojo!
We all had a blast at summer ninja camp!
Come join us in training at one of the finest Martial Arts schools in the greater Cincinnati area.
We teach from these nine historical lineages of Japanese Samurai Kobudo and Budo Ninjutsu:
We not only focus on effective 21st century self-protection, but we also work on strengthening our inner potential for success in all areas of our personal and professional lives.
Call (513) 770-0834 to set up an appointment for your first class.
What people are saying:
"The dojo has helped support the values we have tried to instill in our children. Our 9 year old became a black belt and it improved his confidence. Now, our 4 year old has started training, and is learning skills that will last a lifetime." - Brittany Singleton
"After seven years at another, we switched to The Dojo. The difference was obvious. My daughter has become a leader and teacher, with the skills necessary to keep her safe, because of The Dojo experience." - Eileen McConkie
"High fives to the leaders at The Dojo. They teach fearless defense, self discipline, respect for others, and a desire for educational achievement. Best of all, the students have great fun in The Dojo classes!" - Mary Price
Happy Anniversary! We celebrate seven years of service to the greater Cincinnati communities by positively changing the lives of people of all ages through the study of deep martial arts. Together, we will make the next seven just as exciting!
Stranger Danger and Discipline/Respect/Focus classes for ages 4-7
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 high 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 gym. We do not compete for points, money, trophies or ego-based personal gain like many sport martial arts do. We do not break boards or bricks. We break bad habits. Our martial art is reality-based and extremely powerful at subduing danger. From the first class, you will learn how to defend yourself both physically and mentally, all while having a great time with new friends.
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 fall. 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. __________________________________________________
