How do I become a Member?
Getting started is an easy 3 step process:
Fill out our student application for membership. We only allow 20 members at a time. If there’s no space available we’ll add you to our waiting list.
Be Our Guest in Class
After reviewing your application, we’ll contact you to schedule a class. You’ll get to experience the training first hand, and we’ll be able to see if you’re a good fit for the dojo. There’s no charge for the first lesson.
If after the first class we decide we’re a good fit for each other, you’ll be able to sign up for membership. A new uniform will be provided and you’ll be granted access to the Online Densho.
Why do I have to apply?
We are a small and exclusive community. We only allow 20 members at a time. So we’re fairly selective of who we allow to train. This is in keeping with the tradition of our martial art. With that being said, we can give you some insight on how we go about letting new students in:
- We base it primarily on attitude: if you have a good attitude and heart, that’s most important to us.
- Your goals are something we can help with: if we think we can help you in achieving your goals, then we’re happy to do so. Otherwise, we may refer you to another school that might better meet your needs.
