Educational Value

Ohio Budokan is a traditional martial arts dojo. This means we will concentrate on developing your child’s character instead of focusing on tournaments or winning trophies. When requested, or as a dojo function, we may attend and compete in one tournament per year for educational purposes. We will not teach jumping or spinning techniques that you see in movies because we do not believe they are necessary. We teach simple, basic techniques a child can master. Mastery is stressed and testing is individualized. In other words, students are not compared to each other and are expected to develop at their own pace. Our GenwaKids Karate classes are geared not only to develop character through Genwakai Karate training but to enhance physical skills and develop sports skills. Through repetitive exercises we will teach your child how to block, punch and kick. Using specific games that bolster and compliment the Karate training we will develop their coordination, balance, eye-hand coordination and other sports oriented skills. We will work on strengthening and enhancing your child’s physical skills. In addition, they will learn the oriental forms of respect, patience, obedience to authority and positive behaviors. This will enhance their self-image and confidence in a safe, supportive setting. These qualities will be reinforced through proper etiquette, formality, and following the rules, which have been developed with these goals in mind. Since our founding in1983, the programs offered by Ohio Budokan are available regardless of race, color, creed, disability, sexual orientation, or national origin. Having recently relocated to the Notrthridge area from our original home in Dayton’s Oregon District, Ohio Budokan continues to enjoy a diverse mix of students from varying socio-economic backgrounds.As a recognized 509(a)(2)public charity, Ohio Budokan strives to keep its fees as low as financially responsible in order to keep our programs attainable to everyone in the greater community. Monthly fees range from $80 for adults to $60 for children and friends and family. Payments are made month to month and we don’t allow long term contracts. Under times of financial hardships, members are encouraged to let us know so that the organization can sponsor them during these difficult times. Budget surpluses are diverted to sponsor students with free travel to domestic training camps as well as training camps with our partners in the Netherlands. In person karate, kenjutsu or aikijutsu classes are held every evening Monday through Thursday and Saturday mornings.
