Definitely a special place

Structure and gravity and momentum and physics and sweat and, “Oh my gosh, that makes sense,” and “Nope, guess not,” and then something works just a tiny little bit differently and I don’t know if I did it or if it did me and I’m hooked again. I couldn’t be more impressed with the instruction and everyone I’ve met at the dojo. I feel like I really walked into something special here.

Profound impact

Itten Dojo had a profound impact on me, and I highly recommend at the very least checking it out. I think you’ll find yourself returning, not just for the martial arts but the lessons applicable in daily life.
