Our Martial Arts classes held in Maumee are taught with a unique perspective. We have great respect and admiration for the various styles that are taught today and believe that each adds a tremendous value. We believe in innovation, that our teaching should evolve and freely borrow the best knowledge of what is known in the world of martial arts today.
But we also believe that some aspects of the art should never change. Mindfulness, etiquette, meditation and self control art the heart of all of the arts and should always remain the primary focus of a real dojo. Too often here in the West the internal aspects of the art have been neglected in order to create business models designed to "retain" students - instead of actually helping them learn.
We invite you to investigate our site further - and if you think we might be right for you please schedule a visit (or sign up for our introductory course). We would love to meet you on our mats and introduce you to the arts we love and practice!

Special tuition model:
But our dojo is also unique when it comes to our tuition model. Our dojo is unique because we believe in NO LONG TERM CONTRACTS! Never will you be asked to commit to more than three months; and the majority of our students are on month-to-month programs.
Do we want you to love studying with us so much that you stay with us a long time? Of course! But at the same time we realize that both adults and young people are looking for the right fit for them. Goals can and do change as life changes; consequently it's important that you practice at a dojo that doesn't force you into predicting what the future will hold. If you love learning with us; then your relationship with the mats should be the determining factor as to whether you continue to attend and pay. The decision to continue to study martial arts should not be based on something you signed, but should be based on your continued progress in the arts!
The best teachers, no long term contract, but yet still more...
Unfortunately; today in America there are few real dojos. You are left with having to settle for a sales oriented mostly kids studio, or a highly competitive win-at-all-costs gym. We believe neither of these is the correct model or intention left by the great Masters of Martial Arts. Instead our goal is to give you real Martial Arts, in an environment that is not only safe and friendly, but also serious.
Unfortunately, most of the martial arts available today are really about redefining the arts in an attempt to make them more commercially acceptable. But our belief is that real Martial Arts - when taught well - stands on their own as some of the great accomplishments of human achievement. We believe that lowering the standards of the arts; or merely changing Martial Arts into a "sport" is the all too common consequence of poor instruction. Martial Arts should change you as a person, from the inside out, and that only happens when you are taught to discipline the mind as well as the body.
