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.

Martial Arts Mesa and Kids

Martial Arts Mesa & Kids

When you meet a child who is learning and immersed in a Martial Arts program, you’ll know s/he’s special. Those kids exude a confidence and self-assurance that most don’t get from school and sporting activities. Our Martial Arts Mesa classes are set up to boost a child’s confidence through building self-confidence exercises, working with others to build a team and learning the life-skills they will need to get ahead in life’s journey.

Through discipline, drills, challenges and team-building, confidence in kids’ ability to protect themselves will increase and the required physical exercises will ensure that their bodies are strong and agile. In today’s world, too many kids are falling by the wayside because they have no life-skills. They’re growing into young men and women without a purpose and without the self-esteem needed to succeed even if they did have goals. Martial Arts Mesa classes provide children with skills they can carry with them throughout life. It’s not just about obtaining belts or learning how to kick and punch. The Martial Arts teach a child to grow in other ways too – mind, character and body. They will develop understanding and respect for themselves as well as others.

Fitness is one important element that kids get from Martial Arts training. Fitness in mind, spirit and body can take children much farther in life than typical exercise classes or sports. The entire body is worked out in Martial Arts exercises and children naturally feel stronger and better able to take care of themselves when they know they’re fit. Bullying is a huge problem in our schools today. Knowledge and training in Martial Arts can help a child feel empowered that s/he can protect him/herself from bullies that roam the halls rather than dread going to school to face the bullying each day.

Besides the physical side of protection, a child will also learn to defend him/herself in other ways. It’s best to avoid problematic situations that lead to violence, if possible, and Martial Arts instructors are savvy in teaching kids some street-smart techniques to keep them from becoming embroiled in compromising problems. Teachers often notice a change in kids who are involved in Martial Arts programs. The ability to focus on lessons and tasks improve because they’re being taught discipline and techniques that encourage self-respect when a job is done right.

Parents notice that a child becomes better at doing chores without having to be asked over and over and homework is often done before the parent has to ask. Respect for others is another milestone that’s learned in kids’ Martial Arts Mesa classes.

From bowing to the masters who have earned a higher position to learning respect for others in their lives (teachers, parents and peers) to learning self-respect, students learn how to treat others as they wish to be treated.
