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.

Itten Dojo a godsend

Decided to try something more traditional since I’ve only studied combat sport schools for roughly 12 years. After having numerous injuries and not being able to compete in competitions any longer, Itten Dojo is a godsend. While sitting in to watch a class to see if it was for me, I noticed the instructor and student movements were very refined. The instructor not only explained the technique, also explained the purpose behind it. A wonderful first experience and have been enjoying the art form since.
