Led by Sensei Richard Poage, this is truly an amazing dojo. The quality of instruction of Karate and Kobudo (traditional weapons) is very impressive and the practical applications (Self-Defense Techni...ques) derived from the kata they teach are realistic and actually work! Weather you are looking for practical self defense, fitness, tradition, sparring, or traditional weapons then this is the place you have been looking for. All of the instructors have a wealth of knowledge and are great with both kids and adults. See More

In 2012, at age 53, I decided to learn martial arts with a goal in the back of my mind of earning my black belt by the time I was 60 ; ) I am the academic type and not very athletic; and I injured my... back 15 years earlier, which flares up once in a while. Given these parameters, I called dojos near my home to ask the Sensei if they would be willing to work with me. Every Sensei I spoke to said "the program is the program and there is no deviation". When I spoke with Sensei Poage, his response was, "yes, of course, we can work with you, just come on in." From the first day in class, I have felt supported, respected, and cared for. Even when I hit emotional places inside myself when I spar, Sensei has been extremely patient and supportive. "It's okay, just come to class, just come and practice!" I have and it works!!
I love the diversity of students present in every class. I love how Sensei Poage works with each individual at the level they are at, while at the same time, holding the bar just a bit higher so we can set our goal on the next level of improvement. I love coming to class because it feels like home!
If you are looking for a martial arts program for your kids or for yourself, this is the place to come! They truly build champions!

Sensei Poage and Sensei (well, maybe he prefers Senpai) Legel came out to the bay area to run a seminar, which I had the joy of attending. Had a great deal of fun, good people. Both of them taught ve...ry well. I know nothing of their katas, being a Kyokushin karateka, but I ended up getting a lot out of it anyway. Full contact Shorin Ryu is really cool! See More
