Principles of the Dojo

To be applied at school, at home and everywhere else

Learning Karate is more than physical training.

Professor DiRico’s programs are founded on five core principals that help children and adults succeed in class and in any of their endeavors in life. Each and every day, we reinforce these rules.

These principals are:

Effort – Always try your best
Etiquette – Be polite and thoughtful of others
Sincerity – Be honest
Character – Strive to be a better person
Self-Control – Always have mental & physical control

Parents and school teachers of our students regularly report that they are the most respectful and courteous children of their peers.

Our goal is to use martial arts training to empower each student with the life skills and mind set to succeed in life.
