I have been attending NPMAC for a few years now and before I started coming here, if someone were to ask me about martial arts I would have thought it was punches and kicks, but after my first visit and private class I found it to be much more than that. Since the very beginning they were teaching me to be confident in myself and how to respect others. They showed me that fighting doesn't always have to be a physical altercation, but can be an internal struggle. I've found out that we are our harshest critics. I'm very grateful to have found this dojo and their teachings. Showing me not only the means to protect myself in life or death situations, but how to react to those situations with a different point of view.
I like the way the course is structured and enjoy the numerous amount of teachers at our disposal, each providing their own twist of knowledge in their experience with the style.
Before my first class I thought I was only going to do private classes, but after meeting the teachers and fellow students I found the environment to be welcoming and we were all there for the same purpose. I find it amazing to see the little ninjas all the way to the seasoned black belts still yearning to learn.
The dojo is a relatively large size having a men's dressing room, women's dressing room, bathroom, ninja lounge and spacious mat area.
If you're looking for a martial arts that has both mental and physical aspects than To-Shin Do at NPMAC is my recommendation for you.
