I really like this dojo. I??m 45 and after years of rec league sports I decided I needed something new. I wanted something physically demanding that would motivate me to stay in shape. I got a lot more than I bargained for. I learned quickly that you can??t get good at Goju without a lot of hard work. Natural athleticism doesn??t necessarily translate to quickly picking up Goju. This dojo puts a lot of emphasis on conditioning and technique along with building character and improving focus. The dojo as a whole, instructors and students, are all in it together and that helps because it is very challenging. It takes a lot of hard work but Sensei Ellis and all of his instructors and students are in it together. No one has it easy. I enjoy the camaraderie that you get with that kind of hard work. I??m hooked.

Learning traditional martial arts is a great way to get in shape, lose extra weight, and gain strength and flexibility. It's fun too - and I can kick butt now! All kidding a side, at 5'1" and 115 pounds I have learned to execute techniques that would cause injury to someone taller and heavier, no problem. In this dojo, you not only learn how to do karate, but you learn respect, self discipline, and the code of conduit. I have made so many friends, and feel more connected to my community. Our Sensei is a wonderful teacher. He not only teaches us how to do karate, but also the history of Goju Ryu. There is so much to learn, and so much to practice.

If you want to learn the pure art of Karate in a safe, supportive, atmosphere where skilled instructors are dedicated to your success, this is the school for you. I looked at several schools before I came to Karate on Main, and none of them measured up. Sensei Ellis, has a wealth of experience and the patience of Job. He teaches both adult and children's classes. Sensei Ellis strives to build character and discipline that carrys over into everyday life giving you the confidence to succeed and whatever you put your mind to. This man cares about his students. I would not train anywhere else.
