It is without a doubt a great experience to train here with a wonderful and fun-loving teacher. This dojo has a great and welcoming environment with in-depth instruction and a friendly class. I was very glad to see a class that balanced core fundamentals, practical training, and a strong belief within the martial art’s teachings of harmony and self-awareness. It is very rare to find a gem like this with a strong sense of community and positivity.

Ever since I joined this Dojo, I’ve gotten a fantastic learning opportunity. The Dojo owner and Sensei Scott Hamilton is an excellent teacher, very patient and professional.

This is the 1st time I truly feel like a Japanese Dojo that I see on TV, videos and documentaries.
