Kickboxing classes are high energy, fun and the time flies by! Instructors are very motivated and the entire class is fueled by positive energy and encouragement. If you're considering it, give it a try! You won't regret you did.

This place is spectacular! So many good things about this Martial Arts Dojo! The staff is friendly and welcoming. They treat you like your one of the family, from the moment you walk in the door. All of the instructors are helpful and knowledgeable. Even the students that train are welcoming! They have one of the most flexible schedules around. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! You have to come check this place out!

I've been attending Budo Shingikan Dojo for a little over 2 months now and I absolutely love it! Its my home away from home, my happy place! All of the members make you feel so welcomed and help you so much to make sure you fully understand each thing we are working on. Before starting this program I was very hyper-active and didn't necessarily know how to control my anxiety, with the help of all the members here I am able to focus a lot more, and keep my emotions completely level. I still have a lot to learn and I cannot wait to continue a wonderful journey with these amazing people!

This Martial Arts Dojo rocks! I love Kaiso D'Antonoli and all the other students. Budo Shingikan is a great place to learn Martial Arts, and a community of awesome people (of all ages and backgrounds). Thanks to Budo Shingikan, both my body and mind are incredibly stronger. What I learn at the Dojo has positive impacts in every aspect of my life. Kaiso D'Antonoli is an amazing instructor who knows how to nurture the most skilled martial artist and absolute beginners who never threw a punch or a kick in their entire life. He is able to help transform his students into a balanced confident human being who not only know how to defend themselves and others, but brings balance in their lives. And the learning never stops as you go up in rank. You just keep peeling away the layers. Honestly, you have to try it for yourself!

My biggest issue right now is trying to figure out which classes to attend. I just don’t want to miss anything.

I am very excited to continue training and to grow my skills under the tutelage of Kaiso D'Antonoli.

For anyone who feels lost, for anyone who wants to feel safer walking down the street, or for anyone who is looking to challenge themselves, or get back into shape, I can't recommend Budo Shingikan more.

The staff and instructors are wonderful. They help the kids when they struggle and provide a support base for them to grow up in an environment with lots of confidence. Ours sons favorite instructor is Mr Nick. When he teaches you can really see he loves what he does and the kids respond right back. The staff treat you like family and if you have any issues they are right there to help you out. This by far is the best martial arts school experience we have had.

Our son has been with this dojo for almost 4 years. He has learned so much, not just martial arts. He has learned respect, honor, never giving up, teamwork, as well as avoiding dangerous situations and resolving issues through communication. He has a couple of diagnosed behavior issues and participating in this program has definitely helped these issues. This is a family atmosphere and instructors as well as owners are always there to help and support.

I've been practicing here for 7 months and I love it! What I love most about this place is that it's not all about kicking ass and/or winning. They teach us to listen to our bodies and always be aware of yourself and those around you. They teach us teachings that help us focus and stay flexible during training but also the same teachings can be used throughout our daily lives. It's about becoming a better version of yourself through working on yourself in the dojo and out. Excellent place, excellent people and excellent style of martial arts! I recommend this to anyone and everyone who wishes to advance their lives to a better place.

Really enjoy the instructors. They make it fun for the kids even when they are working out. Been here roughly 6 weeks, kids enjoy it very much. The staff helps out and don't hesitate to ask questions and make sure you know what is going on things go pretty quick when you first start.

This is hands down the best investment I have made into bettering myself! After having been enrolled here for almost a year, I have made many lifestyle changes that will stick for life. Here at the dojo, there is also a great sense of community, filled with wonderful people! The instructors here really do care the students. The time and dedication put into training material and all other aspects of the dojo, is absolutely inspiring. If it were any other way, I would not still be here. So, if you are thinking about trying out some awesome Japanese martial arts, do yourself a favor and give it a try. It will be a decision you will never regret!

I was looking for something for both my son and my daughter to stay active out of the sun this summer, but they're both so different. I found a trail offer and decided that I would sign them up to see if this would be something that they would equally enjoy. Got through the trial period. They wanted more. Everyone here is so welcoming, patient, and absolutely amazing with the kids. They motivate the kids like nothing I've seen! Very nice. Very clean. Needless to say, my kids are begging to go every day they are open and have decided that this will not be just a summer hobby!

From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcomed as a part of the dojo family! The staff are awesome and the instructors are second to none in my opinion! I would recommend this school to anyone interested in bettering themselves both physically and spiritually. I am on a better path in my life thanks in part to Kaiso D'Antonoli and the Bushin Ryu Aiki Bujutsu martial arts system. Can't say enough good about this school!

How do You Find Motivation?

Motivation Monday – How do You Find Motivation?

Let’s talk about motivation Monday, everybody and I mean everybody uses that term these days. When they do “motivation Monday” everybody throws up their little meme, their inspirational picture of people climbing mountains, or even better…

A quote with of a picture of people climbing mountains and overcoming obstacles. While motivation is great. I want to talk about what facilitates motivation.

I want to help you turn the “idea” of motivation into something you can actually do.

What’s the first step to Motivation?

Not long ago I posted about excellence on our Facebook page and that topic is very relevant to what I’m getting ready to discuss here. So let’s talk about excellence, shall we? Let’s talk about this character trait and how we can embody it. To be great and exemplify excellence.

First, you must identify and define your purpose.  You MUST have a purpose.

With that being said, the first step, I would argue, the most important step in finding motivation is to define who you are and what your purpose is in this world. What do you stand for?

What do you stand for?

That’s a powerful question to ask, What do you stand for?

If you can’t answer that question, to put it simply, you haven’t really put a lot of thought into it. I’m going to encourage you to actually put some thought into this and define what your purpose is. Once you define what your purpose is, then everything else can be set around it as support structures and pillars to actually get you to where you want to be in life.

Once you’ve identified your purpose let’s now discuss your support structures – you can identify the result, and once you identified the result, then it’s really easy to see what you’re looking for and actually come up with a process to get there. I hope you can see how I’m connecting those dots.

Motivation will help you achieve the result you seek

Define who you are. Which equals a result and then figure out what the steps are that you need to take in order to achieve that result. That’s your process, taking those steps at any point, if a part of the process isn’t working, the way you want to reevaluate and figure out how to modify the change, do whatever you have to do to make sure you get to those results.

It’s imperative that you do not give up. Just step outside yourself for a moment and evaluate.

This is important because once you know the result. Once you can see the result you are after then you can set the tasks that are needed for you to get to your end goal. The goal you’re looking for must be in alignment with the tasks. If those tasks aren’t serving you well then you need to rearrange them or change them altogether. Again, it goes back to that process.

This reevaluation allows you to work on the process, which is going to get you the result you want.

Don’t miss your opportunity for a new beginning

So, Monday is a great day to start a new beginning every week. And I would encourage you to look at things that way. Don’t dwell in the past right now, this moment is a brand new beginning. It’s how you set up for tomorrow. Every Monday is a great opportunity.

So instead of thinking about something that just kind of makes you feel good, motivationally, just understand it’s a new beginning and it’s a chance to own it! To own your purpose and do what it is that you were meant to do.

If it’s one piece of advice I could give you, don’t let that slip by. You’re only going to have this one day and then it’s gone, maximize it, maximize every single day that you have, and that is going to lead you to that process and eventually, to success.

So think about these things, figure out how you’re going to internalize and adopt that mindset and then go to work, start implementing, and remember…

Make it a great day!
