New Dojos

We are pleased to announce the successful opening of two new dojos by Sensei Doro. 

The Zenkoku Dojo (All Country) is in full operation three days a week offering four classes per week.

The Dokokai Dojo or Beacon Dojo (Lighthouse/guiding light)  began operation on Tuesday, March 2nd and registration has been fruitful.
