My daughter and I met Evis once thus far. Evis' client is my 14 yr old daughter. He appears to have quite a bit of experience. We like his martial arts back ground. The first work out was challenging for my daughter who has not worked out for 1 yr (she earned her junior black belt in Karate about a year ago)but she got through it. Evis had a calm way of of knowing how much more she could do when she did not know it herself. He has a clam way of encouraging. A big plus for my daughter or any beginner. Looking forward to more work out sessions.
My training at the East Morris Karate Academy (EMKA) forms one of the foundations of my life. I have been a member of the Dojo for 28 years and I have been an Instructor there since 1996. The time commitment alone shows how valuable I consider my membership at EMKA. One of the reasons I joined the Dojo (at age 12) was to learn Self-Defense (from bullies). What I got goes far beyond that (though I have learned many effective self-defense techniques). The training gave me the self-confidence to avoid bullying without any physical altercations. This is just one of the many skills I have incorporated into my life through training at the Dojo. I learned how the effort you put in pays off in the results, I leaned discipline, awareness, courage, integrity and courtesy. Upon becoming an Instructor, the training only expanded. My continued training as an Instructor has given me lessons in leadership, planning, marketing and of course teaching. One of the unique things about this Dojo is how focused the training of instructors is on effective teaching techniques. I use things Ive learned at EMKA everyday. I value the camaraderie between the students and my fellow instructors. I thank my Teacher Mr. Musco for his efforts at developing such an extraordinary place.
I am so grateful that I hired John to teach me self defense and traditional martial arts skills. He always tailors our lessons to meet my needs, and he is encouraging in a way that makes me want to work harder. He is also extremely knowledgable and I am learning so much from him. I feel more confident in my ability to protect myself already!

I had taken up this art at the age of 18 years old to assist me in my job performance while under pressure/ stress. Additionally, it became more and more easier as I trained for 30 minutes each day. I was given many hours of advance specializes training from Keith Sammy, Instructor. Lion Style is an art which gives an individual the abuility to defend themselves from any angle with you legs( since you have longer reach and more power with a kick), then your hands. This is a science built art and utilizes kenitics with psychology to strike an opponent without being strike, lead an opponent into an action that allow you to strike, and confuse the opponent. To this end, Lion Style Karate gave me a life long lesson, which was transferable to my dad to day life. Jon Sumesar-Rai MIFire.E, MPS.
The 8 year old who is bullied at school was very happy with his private lesson. He's already feeling more confident and has learned some self defense moves that are appropriate for his age, height, strength level, etc. John will be doing bi-weekly one on one self defense lessons for the next few weeks and then some. As a grandma, I'm very happy my grandon is learning how to protect himself, confidence, how to get out of bully situations, etc.
To Whom It May Concern, I am writing this testimonial to inform you of the talent and passion of my good friend, and teacher, Eric Stowe. While I met Eric while in high school, I did not get to know him until we met again after college. It is important to note, that up to age 19, I was overweight, and unfit physically. I was awkward, and when I walk, I tended, as my mother would say, to lumber. While in college, I lost a good bit of weight, and for a couple semesters, studied Shotokan Karate. Shotokan is a hard style karate, and practices included 45 minutes of strenuous exercise, followed by 15 to 30 minutes of technique or form. While my physical health improved some, I learned very little that would benefit me. After graduating, I met Eric when a mutual friend brought me to a class he was teaching. While we did warm up with some exercises, Eric quickly moved into techniques, so when we left the class, we had a feeling of accomplishment, that we had actually learned something that we could use. I immediately signed up to study under Eric, and continued to study with him for over 15 years. Within a year, my mother commented that while she wasnt sure how she felt about me studying the martial arts, she loved the changes she had seen in me. I stood more erect, I no longer lumbered when I walked, I was more graceful on my feet and more confident in life in general. I have seen Eric work with both men and women, both younger and older. From a middle school aged boy who studied for several years, to a retired woman who joined the class for about one year. Eric is a gifted teacher whose flexibility ensures that everyone in the class, from the most inexperienced, to the seasoned veteran, benefit from the time spent with him. I would recommend anyone looking to improve their health, balance, or peace of mind in a violent world, to spend time studying with him.
Traditional Shotokan Karate focuses on character development and the functional use of the entire body which calms the mind and promotes physical fitness.
The Kyudokan dojo practices the style of karate that is well-known as Orthodox Goju Ryu. Goju Ryu is a traditional art from Okinawa, the homeland of karate. The karate style known as Goju Ryu was founded and developed by Chojun Miyagi (1888 - 1953). Meaning hard/soft, Goju is a self-defense system that focuses on close range fighting with efficiency of movement and also building confidence through personal development. Kyudokan means, "The school that is searching for the way". We strive to share the true history of Goju Ryu Karate for all generations. We also work with our brothers and sisters throughout the world in researching, training, and teaching the ideals of karate-do.
