My girls had such a great time at ninja camp. We usually have a short attention span for camps but they were happy to attend all week long. They really enjoyed working on a project and they really loved Mr Paul
Light. Love. Laughter

NPMAC has been a transformative experience for my 7-year-old son. The dojo's approach to To-Shin Do has not only improved his focus and ability to follow directions but has also instilled in him a sense of discipline and self-confidence. The instructors are incredibly skilled and nurturing, providing a supportive environment that has truly unlocked my son's potential. I'm thrilled with the positive impact NPMAC has had on his behavior and development. It's been an invaluable investment in his growth.

My story with NPMAC starts in my teens. I started training with my family. Unfortunately, at the time I didn't understand how important it was to continue training. I quit a couple years in and went on with life. Twenty-five-ish years later, my then 5-year-old showed interest in martial arts. Even with many years away, I took pride in recommending Kriss Hurdle and Simon Clifford at NPMAC as the first dojo to tour. It ended up being the only tour needed and enrolled in the 'Cool Kids' program. My husband and I were impressed to see the understanding of child development. NPMAC keeps the class short (30 minutes) and fun because children learn better through 'play'!

This time with more appreciation for the value of the philosophy and curriculum, my husband and I train alongside our now 7-year-old. We enjoy the many benefits of training with NPMAC. We are strengthening our mind/body and I have seen a boost of confidence in my child. We are learning how to defend ourselves and the importance of speaking up for ourselves and others. We maintain our physical/mental health and I have noticed a closeness in my marriage/family unit. We enjoy the company and have the opportunity to meet people with different experiences but the same interest in martial arts. MOST IMPORTANTLY, we are doing it as our family of 3!

Staff members are visibly present on the mat and in the training area, actively engaged with the students. Students training are smiling and cheering each other throughout the various exercises I witnessed and the environment was overwhelming positive...

I have been so impressed with the quality of the training here and with the staff's endless patience, amazing attitudes and high level of professionalism. The teachers at the dojo are so consistent and seamless in training and working closely with every student around their natural strengths as well as challenges on their path to developing to their full potential.

There are so many ways that my kids are using their To-Shin Do Ninja martial art in a positive manner. I love that as part of each belt pre-test, a form is filled out by their school teacher and the parents. This helps reinforce that the village is here to support my children's success and help keep them accountable. I am honored that I found a school that has been using these teaching tools for decades in our community- what a gem Newbury Park Martial Arts Center is!!

Newbury Park Martial Arts Center is a dream come true for our family! In addition to a very special martial art, NPMAC teaches self defense, discipline, confidence building, setting and achieving goals, cultivating respect and kindness, inclusivity and more.

NPMAC has created a wonderful community by providing a fun and supportive learning environment for all ages. I am very impressed with the Dojo space. It is well designed and beautifully appointed.

I highly recommend checking out this Dojo. You will be delighted that you did.

NPMAC is one of the very best organizations I have ever been associated with. I don't mean the best dojo, or the best school--simply the best group of people assembling for a common purpose. If you are considering taking classes to learn self-defense, to be more physically fit, or to grow as a person, I very strongly recommend a visit to NPMAC. You'll meet respectful, ethical, friendly and fun people who have your best interests at heart.

Newbury Park Martial Arts Center (NPMAC) is unlike many martial arts studios in that the curriculum taught is practical, down-to-earth, and easily learned - no flying kicks, or other theatrics, just practical movements to protect you, your friends and family. They make an effort to adapt the teachings to those who may not be as limber as a twenty something. I've seen much older adults participating in classes with the instructors modifying the various katas to take into account their physical limitations while keeping the kata as a viable defense. This is not to say that what is taught is simplistic by any means. What is taught at NPMAC is the real deal. The depth of understanding the instructors have of how the art is applied in real life seems bottomless. I've been attending for 9 months and am still learning how the initial self-defense katas can be applied differently and continuously improved. The psychology of a fight is also taught - how your attitude going into a confrontation significantly influences how the confrontation unfolds and ultimately ends - perhaps even ending without a physical confrontation. They also demonstrate how your mental and physical stance during the fight influence how your opponent will respond, giving you a potential edge by making your opponent do what you want him to do. It is truly amazing and something I've never seen taught at lower belt levels. NPMAC also has a large staff of instructors. As a student you will be exposed to a number of different approaches to learn the curriculum. If you don't relate to one instructor chances are you'll relate to one of the others. All the instructors and senior students are friendly and always looking to help if needed - none of the superior, holier than thou attitude that you might experience at other studios. They are great for kids. After attending for a number of months and watching how they work with kids of all ages I decided to enroll my son. As much as they care about the adults learning and progressing in ability they are even more involved with the development of children and pre-teens. The martial arts curriculum is the same as the adult class, but added in are physical and mental games which keep the kids engaged during the class. They urge the parents to engage with them to identify areas the child may be having challenges outside the studio, then help reinforce and support corrections to those challenges while in class. In summary, this is a one-of-a-kind martial arts experience. If you've ever trained at another studio, you'll find this experience very different in a positive way. If you've never trained at another studio, you should consider yourself very lucky to have chosen this one as your first.

NPMAC is an exceptional martial arts studio. We have been bringing our kids here (5 and 7) for 2 years and we have been amazed at the progress they have made. They teach real-world, real-life scenarios, preparing our boys for whatever may come their way in life. The instructors are all extremely knowledgeable, patent and interested in the improvement of the students. Highly recommended. You will not regret it.

I can't say enough good things about NPMAC. The instructors are fantastic. They are positive, patient, fun, and caring. My kids love coming here. It's the only sport they never complain about. I love how the focus is on practical, real-life self-defense. They also emphasis character development and really help your children become good citizens. This school has completely exceeded my expectations.

Have you dreamed of being a ninja? This is the place. The instructors at Newbury Park Martial Arts Center are fantastic with both depth and breadth of knowledge, experience and talent. The dojo is a very welcoming, positive and engaging environment. On the surface, the To-Shin Do style of martial arts is practical self-defense. I've learned how to defend against real attacks without any rules that might occur on the street. At a much deeper level, practicing at the dojo been an opportunity for me to learn more about myself and develop practical skills and tools to help me live more powerfully in the world. I am grateful for the opportunity to train here.
