 The Art of Martial Arts Dojo has some great plans in the works with the Boys & Girls Club of America and the Children's Community Martial Arts Foundation. Helping Kids out in the community is one of the main Goals of The Art of Martial Arts (AMA Dojo).  Teaching Kids to never give up on their dreams is priorty. We  Feel that all kids should have the opportunity to experience the great rewards  of a Traditional Dojo.

I dont know about you guys but I think the other schools in town had better wake up and pay attention. I feel like traditional standards are definitely going to take over the martial arts community, when people get tired of buying belts and decide to learn
what true martial artists have always known. IT AINT THE COLOR OF YOUR BELT THAT PROTECTS YOU! With an opportunity to introduce the other half of Jeff city to us and our awesome kids with this new school I think alot of people will see the true value of traditional training.

I agree Martial Arts schools should teach tradition, honor, respect and discipline. There are several around that claim to do this but in all reallity do not. What does it mean to be a 9 year old Black Belt??? It seems to that a nine year old cannot possess the knoweledge and skill. Also how can you possibly justify testing every 10 weeks or so is it really about learning or is it about who has the deapest pockets. my children tried different schools locally and they did not have what GoshinKan Karate Had to offer Which is a low instructor to student ratio and the ability to let a student learn and even fail if they are not where they need to be. Failure is a part of life you cannot and will not accomplish every thing you set out to do easily or the first try. If you do you proabably better reavalute what you really can or cannot do. It is much better to go through something and learn it correctly than to half heartly go through the motions and be promoted anyway. It is the responsiblity of the instructor to make sure this happens and if it dont you will fail when the real test in life are presented to you.

You hit it on the head Rick. The fourth principle is Heart, and without Heart its just another after school activity. It is the Heart our students show that keeps all of us coming back to give what is needed for our students to grow, succeed, and excel, in all aspects of their lives.
