I learned about this dojo through great reviews on Thumbtack. They were a non-profit, martial arts school that offered training in various martial arts, in an authentic atmosphere and a sincere sense of community. This is what got me interested, and I came for a free trial. The positive reviews were true but someone interested in martial arts should come here and experience for themselves to understand the sincerity of this place.I was treated with politeness and respect, and had an amazing first time learning experience. When you step in and spend time there you see why it is a dojo and not a gym from the way students and coaches interact, practices in the dojo to the friendly community they have there. Our Sense Mr. Werth was patient, calm and friendly, even in one class and a couple of conversations I had with him was enough for me to see the dedication he has to this place and the teachings of martial arts and its philosophy as a way of life.This place is like their home where people show respect and care for each other which is something I appreciated.They do not only have self defense classes but meditation and after school care for children, it seems like a place that cares for their students as a whole, contributing to their lives not just on a physical level.I have signed up for more classes and I am looking forward to better myself in every aspect thisbdojo has to offer. I recommend this place to anyone interested in Martial arts or anyone looking for a community to be a part of or bettering themselves to a more peaceful, self disciplined individual. I highly recommend everyone the free trial to experience this place.
