We strongly recommend this DOJO if you wish that your child becomes a person who is both a good scholarship and martial arts. I am a Japanese mom who has an eight years old boy. He has attended this DOJO since he was four years old. I will tell you why so great this DOJO.

1) Children meet the great masters who are well informed about Bushido (the samurai spirit). Children learn it from them such as Respect, Manners, and Spirit of ”fights for the weak against the strong.".

2) Children practice KATA of defense over and over again. Kata practitioners do not just master basic skills and posture, but also acquire the body movements. So they become to move their body without thinking about it, learned by repeating Kata many times.

3) Dojo is family operated. All staff are friendly and watch over children grow up with a warm heart.

I hope that you understand my English!

This place grows on you.
It all starts with simple yet effective techniques all very strategically organized in curriculum. Then you notice this atmosphere when both instructurs and training partners want you to succeed. Then you discover that your instructors have so much more to show you. Then somehow you realize that you are actually working with things like time, energy, intent, focus that our western science regards only as abstracts. And this road keeps going getting more interesting with every turn.
What is in for you? Come and see for yourself - new friends are always welcome :-)

This place is perfect for improving all sorts of important attributes of little tykes -- regular exercise, focus, discipline, understanding of rules, respect, and the concept and physical underpinnings of self-defense, plus a lot more . . .

Highly recommended!!

Love, love, LOVE this place! It's not only great for the kids but for us parents too. A good combination of practical self defense, fitness, meditation and guidance on being the best person you can be. I come out of every class both stronger and calmer. Can't say enough positive things.

This is a great dojo with wonderful patrons and a caring staff. My kids love their “ninja” classes and I love taking classes knowing each day I become more powerful and confident.

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.

A true gem teaching life skills that go well beyond what you expect to find in a martial center. The staff is warm, friendly, and encouraging to all the students. 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. Training had a unique approach, encouraging the students to use words deterring aggression, and the physical techniques showed flexible responses depending the real-life situation that might arise. The facility is very well maintained and extremely clean. This place is truly unique and unlike any other martial school I've been in.

I have been attending NPMAC for many years now. When I first discovered it, I was surprised at how friendly, helpful and down to earth everyone was. After spending enough time studying To-Shin Do, it becomes very clear that these values are weaved into the fabric of the art and are genuine at every level.

Does any of this

sound familiar?

You need help managing your stress.

You want to strengthen and tone your body.

You want to lose weight.

You want to be in good shape...

...but you have trouble finding a workout that gives you what you need

That’s a common problem, and it can be difficult to figure out which workout is going to give you the best results. You might also wonder whether there’s a workout that can help your body and mind at the same time.

Ideally, the workout you choose should help you improve your strength, gain flexibility, and be a healthy part of your daily routine. If working out feels like a chore, you won’t stick to it.

Feel the stress and tension melt away

Yoga is an ancient practice with modern appeal. By emphasizing core strength, balance, and flexibility, it helps people lose weight, tone their muscles, and manage their stress.

Practicing Yoga Helps You Let Go of Stress

Modern life is stressful. We all struggle to balance our work with our home lives, and to make time for family, friends, and hobbies.

Because it strengthens the connection between your body and your mind, Yoga helps teach students to manage their stress. To practice Yoga, you must be in the moment.

Over time, studying Yoga can provide you with the peace of mind you seek, while also helping improve your physical health.

Yoga Practice Improves Muscle Tone and Strength

If you want to tone your muscles, you must target them with exercises that force them to work. And one of the best ways to accomplish that is through the practice of Yoga.

Yoga uses your body weight to help you build muscle. By balancing and holding poses, you’ll train your core muscles and make your whole body strong.

As you learn and grow in your practice, you’ll build the strength to hold advanced Yoga poses – and you’ll carry that strength over into other areas of your life.

Practicing Yoga Helps People Lose Weight

Weight loss is a common goal stated by people who sign up for Yoga classes. They want to reconnect with their bodies and get in shape.

The practice of Yoga helps with weight loss by building muscle. Muscle burns more calories than fat does, and as you study Yoga, you’ll increase your metabolism, too.

Yoga will help you appreciate your body in a new way, and build the connection between your body and mind. You’ll want to give your body what it needs to be strong and healthy.

Stand Tall by Practicing Yoga

It’s common for people to have poor posture as a result of crouching in front of computers and mobile devices.

Practicing Yoga builds core strength and helps practitioners stand tall and strong. When your core muscles are toned, it’s easy to hold yourself straight and improve your posture.

Yoga can also improve your self-confidence. You can walk into rooms knowing you look and feel good – and that affects your posture, too.
