WOW!!!! WOW!!! WOW!!! This Dojo is amazing. I have been a part of several martial arts schools over the years and am absolutely thrilled with the Budo Shingikan. There is no Kata (pre-arranged forms), its all hands on with a partner, even the kids program, which means you learn to feel what its like to be grabbed or have a punch thrown at you, not to mention you feel when you are doing the technique correctly because your partner falls down. There is also so much stress put onto learning true martial arts. Most schools in the area want you to sign a contract, join a Black Belt Club, and so on...because its all geared towards making money as a business. This Dojo is run just like Japanese Dojo in which martial arts come first and nothing is compromised for monetary gain. The staff is well versed and amazing. They are friendly and yet strong leaders at the same time. They are humble and incredibly knowledgable. You wont find a better martial arts school in the Phoenix Metro area. They offer 5 different martial art practices + weapons work, with Sensei's (teachers) in each art and its all given to the students at a lower price point than the ""industry standard"" for martial arts schools and training. I couldnt possibly give a higher recommendation to anyone!!!!!!!
