This place is amazing! I never tried a martial arts class before but it was always something that interested me, they offered a free class to see if it was something that I would like, and I was hooked right a way and knew I found what I was looking for!

Todai Dojo's instructors and its students are amazing! ...after the first class I felt already part of the family, everyone there is so nice and helpful! I can say I'm a lot more confident in my life and Todai has opened a new door in my journey in life

Ever since I joined this Dojo, I've gotten a fantastic learning opportunity. The Dojo owner and Sensei Scott Hamilton is an excellent teacher, very patient and professional. This is the 1st time I truly feel like a Japanese Dojo that I see on TV, videos and documentaries.

Great self defense practices, intense training and weapon self defense. I was sore after one class for days in areas I never knew could get sore. Great instructors who not only teach you the foundation but are so open to scenario questions and answers.
