Kickboxing classes are high energy, fun and the time flies by! Instructors are very motivated and the entire class is fueled by positive energy and encouragement. If you're considering it, give it a try! You won't regret you did.

This place is spectacular! So many good things about this Martial Arts Dojo! The staff is friendly and welcoming. They treat you like your one of the family, from the moment you walk in the door. All of the instructors are helpful and knowledgeable. Even the students that train are welcoming! They have one of the most flexible schedules around. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! You have to come check this place out!

I've been attending Budo Shingikan Dojo for a little over 2 months now and I absolutely love it! Its my home away from home, my happy place! All of the members make you feel so welcomed and help you so much to make sure you fully understand each thing we are working on. Before starting this program I was very hyper-active and didn't necessarily know how to control my anxiety, with the help of all the members here I am able to focus a lot more, and keep my emotions completely level. I still have a lot to learn and I cannot wait to continue a wonderful journey with these amazing people!

This Martial Arts Dojo rocks! I love Kaiso D'Antonoli and all the other students. Budo Shingikan is a great place to learn Martial Arts, and a community of awesome people (of all ages and backgrounds). Thanks to Budo Shingikan, both my body and mind are incredibly stronger. What I learn at the Dojo has positive impacts in every aspect of my life. Kaiso D'Antonoli is an amazing instructor who knows how to nurture the most skilled martial artist and absolute beginners who never threw a punch or a kick in their entire life. He is able to help transform his students into a balanced confident human being who not only know how to defend themselves and others, but brings balance in their lives. And the learning never stops as you go up in rank. You just keep peeling away the layers. Honestly, you have to try it for yourself!

My biggest issue right now is trying to figure out which classes to attend. I just don’t want to miss anything.

I am very excited to continue training and to grow my skills under the tutelage of Kaiso D'Antonoli.

For anyone who feels lost, for anyone who wants to feel safer walking down the street, or for anyone who is looking to challenge themselves, or get back into shape, I can't recommend Budo Shingikan more.

The staff and instructors are wonderful. They help the kids when they struggle and provide a support base for them to grow up in an environment with lots of confidence. Ours sons favorite instructor is Mr Nick. When he teaches you can really see he loves what he does and the kids respond right back. The staff treat you like family and if you have any issues they are right there to help you out. This by far is the best martial arts school experience we have had.

Our son has been with this dojo for almost 4 years. He has learned so much, not just martial arts. He has learned respect, honor, never giving up, teamwork, as well as avoiding dangerous situations and resolving issues through communication. He has a couple of diagnosed behavior issues and participating in this program has definitely helped these issues. This is a family atmosphere and instructors as well as owners are always there to help and support.

I've been practicing here for 7 months and I love it! What I love most about this place is that it's not all about kicking ass and/or winning. They teach us to listen to our bodies and always be aware of yourself and those around you. They teach us teachings that help us focus and stay flexible during training but also the same teachings can be used throughout our daily lives. It's about becoming a better version of yourself through working on yourself in the dojo and out. Excellent place, excellent people and excellent style of martial arts! I recommend this to anyone and everyone who wishes to advance their lives to a better place.

Really enjoy the instructors. They make it fun for the kids even when they are working out. Been here roughly 6 weeks, kids enjoy it very much. The staff helps out and don't hesitate to ask questions and make sure you know what is going on things go pretty quick when you first start.

This is hands down the best investment I have made into bettering myself! After having been enrolled here for almost a year, I have made many lifestyle changes that will stick for life. Here at the dojo, there is also a great sense of community, filled with wonderful people! The instructors here really do care the students. The time and dedication put into training material and all other aspects of the dojo, is absolutely inspiring. If it were any other way, I would not still be here. So, if you are thinking about trying out some awesome Japanese martial arts, do yourself a favor and give it a try. It will be a decision you will never regret!

I was looking for something for both my son and my daughter to stay active out of the sun this summer, but they're both so different. I found a trail offer and decided that I would sign them up to see if this would be something that they would equally enjoy. Got through the trial period. They wanted more. Everyone here is so welcoming, patient, and absolutely amazing with the kids. They motivate the kids like nothing I've seen! Very nice. Very clean. Needless to say, my kids are begging to go every day they are open and have decided that this will not be just a summer hobby!

From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcomed as a part of the dojo family! The staff are awesome and the instructors are second to none in my opinion! I would recommend this school to anyone interested in bettering themselves both physically and spiritually. I am on a better path in my life thanks in part to Kaiso D'Antonoli and the Bushin Ryu Aiki Bujutsu martial arts system. Can't say enough good about this school!

Less Stress When a Child Knows Self Defense Techniques

One of the most effective self-confidence boosters for a child is when s/he knows how to defend him- or herself. We hope that our children never have to use that knowledge, but today’s world has no guarantees.

There are bullies and kid-brawls and even more sinister reasons that your child should know defense techniques. Knowing how to keep themselves safe can provide a big burst of self-confidence that can get them through tough situations.

Simply knowing these defense techniques lessens some of the stress that most kids feel at one time or another when going through school and social activities. They face enough challenges through life without having to deal with the stress that comes from bullying and other fears.

Statistics show that kids who practice martial arts make good grades in school and are more apt to try new things. They are more disciplined and willing to try new things that will make them stronger and smarter.

The gift of confidence can motivate your child to excel in all areas of life. It’s a motivational learning experience that promotes respect and perseverance as well as kindness toward others.

Stress is one of the major problems that affect children as they enter and progress during school years. If that stress isn’t reduced and transformed into confidence to meet all of life’s challenges, a child could easily become overwhelmed.

Most kids have a vast amount of energy that they just don’t know what to do with. Unless it’s channeled into productive actions, it could go in a direction you might regret. Their time and energy are better utilized if they are engaged in activities that promote overall health and fitness.

Attention span of kids who practice martial arts is also greatly improved – and as an added bonus, hand-eye coordination improves as do motor skills. Our instructors also ingrain in children a higher level of respect and obedience toward their elders.

Martial arts classes here at Martial Arts Gilbert are engaging and develop leadership qualities in your children that will serve him/her well throughout the years. Instructors take the necessary time to get to know your child on an individual basis, letting them know they are important and deserve the best.

Defense skills aren’t the only reasons to involve your child in our martial arts program. Confidence in him/herself and knowledge that s/he is loved and cherished is an incalculable gift that can change their lives.

What would you give to help your child reduce the stress in her/his life and manage the formative school years with grace and confidence? It’s an immeasurable gift that you can give your child that will make a real difference in their life.
