These students help encourage each other, and are put on a path that will assist them in meeting their goals. The nice thing about training at The Dojo of Karate and being apart of our Black Belt Club, is that our students are learning goal setting skills, perseverance, and determination -- while training in Karate. They are also allowed to start using one of our weapons, the Bo Staff. The Bo Staff is a traditional Okinawan weapon used to carry buckets of water in one's village. Now, students at The Dojo are learning how to use them as a way of self-defense, and working together with others.
