In our dojo
Our dojo is a model for the communities we want to live in. A space where humans thrive; where they are seen and heard. A space to practice boundaries, consent, and communication. In the dojo we open ourselves to receive feedback with gratitude and embrace failure as our teacher. We are fierce and we’re fun. We always begin in a circle. We bow—to ground ourselves in respect for self and other, to show gratitude for the space. We hold a brief meditation. We make you feel welcome and that you know you matter. And that we’re together, we’re a team. And then we train.
The dojo is a room designed for transformation—it’s a medium for our training. We bow to the room when we enter. We are all trained to wash and clean all equipment, to stack the pads neatly on the shelves. How we care for the room is part of our practice. Our dojo is setup for circuit training, blending functional strength and conditioning with striking drills from kickboxing and old school karate. Our space is fully equipped for the training we offer, our heavy bags and striking pads are hand-made and well-maintained. We use a variety of exercise equipment, from free weights to resistance bands, to kettlebells to keep it fun and challenging. We provide expert instruction in how to use all of our equipment properly, and safely.
