Sensei used to say "To maintain one's level one must train twice a week. To improve one needs to train at least three times a week. To improve even more, then more classes a week".

We have convenient locations an extensive schedule and an informative  website your success now depends on the time and effort YOU put in. You are the one that chooses your level of success.

 

We say "One taking a Black Belt Exam (any Black Belt Level), one must be at the top of their game. In "the best" physical condition. Their body must have made a transformation. Now you are in a room of others in the "same condition". Then you must stand out amoung "them".

There was some  misinformation going around the last few years at Central Dojo. That "everyone" would not pass their Black Belt test the first time. But that they would pass their second or third time after that. I even heard "I'm going to take the test just to get that over with" The fact was that most people did not understand what was expected, tested too soon and underprepared.
