Me and my Daughter both enjoying martial arts at Dojo. Best instructors, so much focus on techniques, developing skills, paying attention for each and every kid. Flexibility in class timings, friendly co-ordinator, and so on. Fully satisfied with Dojo.😊 Highly Recommend.

I am so thankful for Ms. Cote, Ms. Cote-Nerum and all of the other instructors and leaders at Dojo!!

I didn't think we would make it past our first few classes with our then just turned 3 year old! He would not focus, listen, or even sit still in class. All he wanted was to sit with his dad!

Now here we are a year later and he goes into class on his own, participates almost every time and when he doesn't he sits and watches everyone instead of running around and being disruptive! He loves participating in demonstrations with everyone and looks forward to going!

Thanks again for all your hard work and sticking with him! He has learned so much!!

Dojo has been a great place for our son to learn not only karate, but self-control, focus, coordination, leadership, and confidence.

I really like this place. Good, personable instructors. They really do care and take the time to work with each student. Two of my daughters are also enrolled, the third will be when she's old enough. Once you make the commitment to better yourself, they share that goal with you

My son is learning to focus and achieve goals and his self confidence is getting better all the time. He loves the instructors and has a great time here. We had tried other places but they didn’t have the fun environment that dojo has and he ended up feeling overwhelmed by the pressure. I feel that the instructors at dojo do a great job balancing fun and structure by teaching self discipline and using affirmation to help build confidence.
