Welcome to Massdojo.com


Why should you choose to train with us?

Itís simple! We are committed to excellence. We enjoy genuine camaraderie and a family atmosphere. Thereís nothing flashy about us like unnecessary patches. We let our skills and results speak for themselves.

Our dojos are committed to a positive experience in traditional Japanese Martial Arts. Many families have multiple members training in our dojo. Our classes are taught with enthusiasm and sincerity. We have a martial art for everyone. The level of respect, confidence and encouraging atmosphere is evidenced immediately in observing a class.

Students are taught to be goal oriented. Positive reinforcement insures training ethics. An inspirational attitude is crucial in martial art training. It is important to teach with respect, courage and understanding. Students are taught to reach their perceived goals and then exceed them. Bit by bit, piece by piece the art is taught so a student is always eager & hungry to learn more.

Martial Art Training is more than working out in the gym, getting on a treadmill, shooting hoops with your buddies. Karate, Aiki-Jitsu & Aikido are group personal training activities where you learn not only to defend yourself but also build your self-esteem and develop camaraderie with your peers. A martial artist does not tire or bore easily, because there is always something new to learn or perfect.

Classes for All Ages

Martial Arts are a must in building the confidence necessary for effective self-defense. An hour drop-in self defense course CANNOT teach this. The techniques take time to develop. However, students will quickly become reassured about their ability to protect themselves. With regular practice this “faith in yourself” will continue to grow. Perfection of technique is a goal all students strive for, but it is something that only comes with repeated practice. One must be willing to put in the time and hard work to achieve his or her goals.

Karate

Karate can also be described as a martial art, or fighting method, involving a variety of techniques, including blocks, strikes, evasions, throws, and joint manipulations. Karate practice is divided into three aspects: kihon (basics), kata (forms), and kumite (sparring). The word karate is a combination of two Japanese characters: kara, meaning empty, and te, meaning hand; thus, karate means "empty hand." Adding the suffix "-do" (pronounced "doe"), meaning "way," i.e., karate-do, implies karate as a total way of life that goes wellbeyond the self-defense applications. In traditional karate-do, we always keep in mind that the true opponent is oneself.

Karate-do instills mutual respect, courage and other important life skills. This is why many parents put their children in a martial art study at one time or another. Karate will also assist children greatly with many sports.

"To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy with out fighting is the highest skill."

"The ultimate aim of the art of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the characters of its participants."

- Gichin Funakoshi


Aiki-jitsu, Ju-jitsu and Judo

Aiki-jitsu is a general budosport, several aspects of different sport are combined (such as ju-jitsu, karate, aikido). Although this sport is titled as 'self-defense' it is more than that. Karate & Aiki-Jitsu will improve muscle tone, endurance, flexibility, agility, balance, coordination, etc… Most importantly students are taught to achieve a balance between confidence and humility.

Aiki-jitsu is a Japanese martial arts system that was developed from the Samurai's need for a way to defend themselves when unarmed.
