Self Defense Classes

As close to perfect Isshin-ryu as possible! (imho). I broke two patio bricks my first class (1 brick, 2 times). I feel what I learned is very, very effective in any street fight. Isshin-ryu is my favorite striking style. Sensei Holloway is a very dedicated teacher, as are all the black belts. Money well spent here!

We love being a part of such a wonderful dojo family. Outstanding people that really care about and support each other's growth, character, and self-confidence and respect. Sensei Holloway teaches students of all ages, and engages everyone on their own level and ability. Whether it be an adult or a kids class, he has their full attention because he is a very dynamic instructor and really cares about people.
