“My two children ages 11 and 13 have been learning Karate with Lucas. They absolutely love it and I am very pleased with their development and dedication. They respect Lucas and he brings to their instruction much skill and responsibility with the teachings of Traditional Shorinji Ryu Karate Do.”

Immediately I was intrigued with the traditional self defense aspect, which I hadn’t expected. Tai Chi both challenges and rewards me; it looks so simple yet demands precision and control. LucasContinue Reading


“After a long hiatus from training I was so glad to have found this Dojo and start attending classes again. Lucas curates a safe respectful environment with lots of knowledge, individual instruction and an obvious inspiration for teaching. An ideal club for either beginners or experienced students.”
