As part of our vision for the future, we designed our facilities to accommodate long-term growth as well as become a premier destination for traditional martial arts training and international seminars.
WELCOME TO OUR DOJO
In 2018 we completed a major renovation / expansion of our dojo. The project increased our total square footage by more than 4,000 square feet and added some much needed amenities to accommodate future growth. In addition, with 2,300 square feet of sprung, tatami practice flooring, and 500 square feet dedicated to strength and conditioning, and full multi-media and conference capabilities, we are excited to become a premier destination for traditional martial arts training on the west coast.
Below are a few highlights of our dojo and what we offer our members and guests. Our building is more than 6,600 square feet and includes an array of new features. Most importantly, the building feature 2,300 square feet of Japanese tatami (mats) supported by a sprung floor, which will allow us to grow our student base for years to come and host international seminars. To compliment the larger practice area, we added a strength and conditioning area featuring Eleiko and Rogue Fitness equipment.
The heart of our dojo is our practice floor. Featuring top of the line 3 inch japanese tatami, our dojo offers 2,300 square feet of practic area. The entire floor is supported by more than 2,800 gymnastics springs, making it a true “floating floor” and one of the best surfaces you will train on anywhere in the world.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING
Adjacent to our practice floor is our strength and conditioning area. The area is more than 500 square feet in total and features 1.5 inch rubber flooring, enabling the entire area to be used for training and Olympic lifting. Designed by our very own Certified Strength Coach, Sensei Lekas, the area comes equiped with top-of-the-line Eleiko powerlifting sets and Rogue Fitness equipment. In addition, students can improve their strength utilizing our gymnastics rings, rope climb, chin up bar and dip stations.

The area contains a foyer and full windows through which to view practice on the mat. Further, we have 600 square feet of open office combined with full multi-media capabilities for seminars, coaching workshops and other practice related learning and development.
