Sensei Chris and his team at Ryu Renshi Dan are an incredible team of karate instructors and friends that we are so grateful for. Their karate classes, karate camps, and Saturday night events are fantastic. The sense of community you feel here is unparalleled. I’ve never felt more comfortable leaving my son with these individuals. As a parent that is priceless. They learn skill, patience, respect, and SO much more. I couldn’t recommend this dojo more. AWESOME.
I came to karate late in life and wish I had started as a kid. Getting my black belt was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I hope to continue training with Shihan Chris as long as I’m able to do so.
Our son has been in the dojo for 5 years, from a white belt to purple advanced belt and senpai now. It teaches him martial arts and discipline in a fun way. Great experience and we highly recommend it!
My son has felt welcomed, accepted, challenged and nurtured every step of the way, from the very first class four and a half years ago when he was so nervous he almost threw up! Now he is a purple belt and sempai and the dojo is a home away from home. Sensei Chris and his staff have a magical mixture of humor, patience, experience and talent which just naturally inspires kids. My son plans to study karate for the rest of his life, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
Ryu Renshi Dan teaches me how to stand up for myself and gives me a back-up plan if someone tries to use force against me. The classes are not too big or too small and you can always get individual attention if you need help with your kata or something. Sensei is not mean, like, “DROP AND GIVE ME 100 PUSH-UPS NOW!” but he enforces discipline which is good. I like being sempai so I can help younger kids and set an example for them. Plus, dojo nights are awesome, especially board-breaking and dodge-ball and flags!
