WARRIOR MARTIAL ARTS DOJO
Warrior Martial Arts Dojo is a Karate school in Tipton that teaches Ryukyu Tode Jutsu (an Okinawan Karate). Unlike the more contemporary Japanese 'styles' our approach is a very much substance over style response to violence. We teach effective self protection via the medium of true traditional karate that covers not just stand up fighting, but also close quarters, grappling, ground fighting, and even traditional and modern weapons use.
Our full time Dojo is fully matted and equipped, and our instructors have decades of experience. We are also a very open school with ties to other local clubs and martial artists and are always willing to open our doors to guests. We even hire our space out for other clubs to use.
PRINCIPLES OF OUR DOJO
Gi - Integrity
Yuki - Courage
Jin - Benevolence
Rei - Respect
Makoto - Honesty
Meiyo - Honour
Chugi - Loyalty
