Why would anyone drive nearly 20 minutes to come to our dojo? 

Martial Arts is culturally driven. Our instruction may not be right for you - but one thing is certain - it is unique and unlike any other school you will visit. 

Martial Arts programs are ALL unique. You've got to find the fit that's right for you - and that requires some investigation. We don't know if you should sign up with us - but we do think you at least owe yourself a chance to visit. You can schedule a time to try our introductory course - or if you prefer you can set up a time to simply come in and watch a class.

What we do is a little different - it's not that our technique is that much different than what you will see in some other places. What separates us is a hundred little details that you will feel almost immediately; from our facility, to our organization, to the way the students treat one another and our beginners. Dozens of small things that add together to make our student experience one of the best anywhere.

We believe that teaching Martial Arts is a lot like being a great Martial Artist. It takes a balance of things - you've got to know how to defend yourself with strikes, you've got to be able to grapple and do small joint manipulation, but you've also got to have a strong mind so your timing is  impeccable. In the same way - it's not one thing we do better than anyone else - instead it's a balance of things that makes our program what it is.

Don't call or email us yet. Just look over our site - investigate our story - and ask yourself if we are at least worth a visit. If the answer is "yes" then give us a call at 419-385-1000 and we'd be happy to answer any of your questions and schedule a time for you to visit.

Special words from Sensei Joseph Hurtsellers:

People ask me all the time about business secrets. How do we get such a loyal following of staff, volunteers, and families. They think I’m using some secret; and if they could learn my trick they would get the same result.

When I tell those who ask the truth some refuse to believe me, other’s think I’m purposely withholding information. Truth is there is no “secret”. The simple method I use is not a method at all; it’s just the unique way I look at people and the world.

Ever since I can remember there has been one thing that makes me the most happy. It’s the one thing that’s gotten me through the hard days, the days of sleeping on the floor, and late nights away from my family. What motivates me most is the look on a students face when they finally get a technique right. The smile that comes from inside their eyes when they realize they’ve got it! And when that happens I realize the Martial Arts has touched their life, the same way they have mine, and I know the student will never be the same; I live for those magical moments!

My specialty is being passionate about my students progress. While it’s true there are many martial artists with greater athleticism, or better technical skills; I can say without apology that I know of no one who has passed me in the love for teaching, and the love for my students.

I think it’s my genuine love for my amazing students that makes me effective as a teacher. I think it’s this genuine love that is responsible for most of the results we’ve gotten over the years.
