Anahely started training with me July 2006 at 12 years of age.

You have worked hard and you are a great example of what a Yudansha stands for, I am so proud of you! M. Fletcher, Sensei

The Traditional Mixed Martial Arts Dojo is by no means a Belt factory, is it a high standard Traditional Japanese Martial Arts DOJO!

Kiyama, Shihan taught the JoDo to the Dojo membership. The Jo is a weapon that is 50" in length and 1" in diameter. The JoDo that Kiyama Shihan trains in has been handed down for the past 450 years so there is a lot of history!
