I am 27 and had never done karate before. I had always wanted to try it but was afraid I was too old and starting too late in life. I was wrong. Sensei Roberto is amazing teacher who is patient and understanding every step of the way. I not only learned technique but practical application to help me defend myself, if I ever needed to, and in many different situations. Not only was Sensei Roberto fantastic but so where all the other students, always willing to take extra time to work with me. If you are new to karate I greatly recommend this dojo. If you have been doing karate for a while and are looking for a new dojo I still recommend this dojo. You get traditional Okinawan self-defense karate with a wonderful skilled instructor. I absolutely love this dojo.

Great instruction, talented students, and exceptional learning environment for the beginner to the advanced. Roberto Sensei keeps each lesson motivating and challenging. There are several skilled black belts and brown belts to assist with learning correct techniques, kata, and even one-on-one attack/defend applications. The dojo facility is spacious, and there is plenty of parking. Students are taught traditional Okinawan Self-Defense Karate techniques, as well as the history and culture of the Beikoku Shidokan karate style.
