Our Dojo “The Dojo is a place to discipline the mind and body, an area where the student must practice seriously and with spirit.”
At our dojo we believe in the principles of strong foundation, tradition, training, and respect. Students follow traditions and training brought back from GKSDOFA Shihan George Munoz, which have kept our style strong over many years. Students are expected to show proper respect and etiquette at all times. Students are expected to train hard and hold to the virtues of GKSDOFA SYSTEM
Our Style “The way of inhaling and exhaling is hard and soft.” GKSDOFA SYSTEM is a close-range self-defense system, characterized by hard striking attacks including kicks, punches, knees, and elbows, as well as softer circular techniques which are visible in many of the martial arts form
For this reason, GKSDOFA SYSTEM is suited equally as well for older students as for younger ones. The real and lasting benefits occur mentally (less stress, ability to handle situations in a calm, relaxed manner), physical (increased stamina, strength, and speed) and through the vital development of self-confidence, discipline, and achievement.
A Word of Professional Caution
If you are interested in the best martial arts for practical self defense, the following are some things you should be aware of before enrolling at any school (DoJo):
1.) Do you want to learn just the sport of Karate?
2.) Do you want to learn practical self defense and the sport?
3.) Are you willing to practice and attend classes? If you decide enroll, then check the following:
1.) Check the reputation of the school, instructor, the length of time the school has been in operation.
2.) The accident record, the ability and patience of the instructor. Remember your safety and pocketbook may be jeopardized if you do not check what is mentioned above. Be aware of the so called black belts, check their credentials.
If you decide to learn both the sport and the art at the same price and same time, consider any Dojo and instructor who belongs to the GKSDOFA. These instructors and schools have been checked and screened for the mutual benefit of the students and the organization. They are selected on the highest of standards. GKSDOFA, their style, good students, their hope. GKSDOFA is self defense, self confidence, and self control. It is the way of justice. It is a great physical fitness program designed for people of all ages. GKSDOFA is a spiritual as well as physical education.
It teaches us self confidence, self control and it is a purification of mind and spirit. It is believed that by perfect meeting of spirit and body posture this power can be released and used as desired for defense or offense. Remember that yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision, but today lived with self confidence makes yesterdays dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of Hope.
