When one enters Maru Dojo, one would note a zen like atmosphere. The students take pride in cleaning the dojo. The gym-like mentality and mixed martial arts attitude are absent from the dojo environment.
Humility is strongly encouraged and arrogance must be discarded at the door. The door is wide open to whomever wants to learn and wants to share but ego won't fit through it.
Training is done with earnest intent accompanied by light-hearted enthusiasm.
Beginners are always welcome!
Congratulations to the newly minted members who tested on February 15, 2015 for the kyu (rank) examinations.
