In short, we do not cater to the unrealistic fantasies of people who would rather read self-serving articles and watch exploitive films rather than put forth the effort necessary to learn a true art. If you want to win big trophies or show off for your friends, this is not the school for you. If, however, you are seeking insight into greater development of you (and/or your child) as a whole, healthy person, you may be someone we are looking for. Come in and find out.
Adult classes are a unique blend of physical workout and mental challenge. Students develop relaxation, coordination, and powerful, effective self-defense skills. Hard physical workouts are tempered by the subtle, refined techniques of the cultural arts. The senses are honed in a way not possible by mere sports - martial arts are mental tactics, which will help in all aspects of life. Confident, disciplined, happier people are always more successful than those lacking these qualities. Authentic, traditional martial arts are fertile grounds for this type of development.
Kids have their own special classes at Ito's White Tiger Dojo. Classes are taught with the appropriate mixture of martial arts and martial exercises for each group. The teachers (Sensei) at Ito's White Tiger Dojo motivate kids through their own special mixture of discipline, humor and positive examples.
Physical skills, which are so important in the development of a child, are learned in a fun (but serious), comprehensive and structured way. A positive by-product of the training received at Ito's White Tiger Dojo is children learn skills that will help them excel at sports and other physical activities for the rest of their lives. They will develop the confidence, discipline, respect and self-esteem that will help them succeed in life as adults.
