 MAP to our Mesa Dojo (Karate School) on the border of Gilbert & Chandler

A half century of martial arts
Karate is about self-defense & self-improvement. Our Martial Arts classes are for women, men & families from white belt (beginner) to the highest level black belt. If you are a person of peace and integrity, you are welcome in our martial arts school. Feel free to visit our school on the border of Mesa with ChandlerGilbert at the 60 W. Baseline Center (Mesa). We have a nice peanut gallery for you to sit in to observe a class - we do not hire salesmen so you will never be pressured into signing up for classes. But we will try to answer your questions about martial arts and leave it up to you if you want to join our group. Please compare our experience and fees with anyone in Arizona.
