I am 27 and had never done karate before. I had always wanted to try it but was afraid I was too old and starting top late in life. I was wrong! Sensei Roberto is amazing teacher who is patient and understanding every step of the way. I not only learned technique but practical applications to help me defend myself, if I ever needed to, in many different situations. Not only was Sensei Roberto fantastic but so where all the other students, always willing to take extra time to work with me.
If you are new to karate I greatly recommend this dojo. If you have been doing karate for a while and are looking for a new dojo I still recommend this dojo. You get traditional Okinawan karate with a wonderful skilled instructor.
I absolutely loved this dojo. I recently had to move which forced me to find a new dojo, other wise I would still be there!

You trained with the rest, now train with the Best! A life long journey in a friendly atmosphere coupled with practical applications. After training with us, you can stop buying the videos and books and learn first hand applications of kata. Sensei and students alike are genuine and not "ballers." No matter your age, just show up and train. You won't be disappointed.

I have been practicing Okinawan shorin-ryu karate for the last 15 years in Colombia, Argentina and the US. I've known Sensei Curtis for 7 years; his guidance and teaching will definitely take your current skills to the next level. 
This style of karate is great for all ages, through the practice of kata, bunkais and kumites, you'll continuously improve your martial arts skills while making great friends. What I particularly like about Shidokan, is that through the proper techniques you'll be able to to defend yourself regardless of your opponent's age or size. Sensei Iha (Sensei Roberto's sensei) is currently 81 years old, and his moves are simply flawless and completely effortless. Nobody can get close to him. Try out some classes and you'll not be disappointed.
