Southside Dojo is a non-profit school, committed to the goal of providing a quality martial arts facility with knowledgable and qualified instructors of traditional Japanese martial ats and a family-friendly environment!
We offer a variety of classes at Southside Dojo, including karate, aikido, jujitsu, kendo, kobudo, arnis, and medieval european martial arts. Southside Dojo memberships cover all the martial arts classes offered. Feel free to stop by and try out any of the classes.
We offer classes for all ages from children as young as 5 or 6 through adults. Children’s classes are designed for ages 6 to 14. Students can start adult classes at ages as young as 12-13, although that is at the instructor's discretion.
Southside Dojo is pleased to reopen our classes and begin to return to normal operations. For those classes that engage in contact (striking or grappling), we are returning to normal operations. Classes are being held indoors and, for those individuals providing proof of vaccination, may generally be unmasked. Those unable to provide proof of vaccination will be asked to wear masks while in the dojo. Individual instructors or class sessions may require masks and all children's classes will be held masked.
Our schedule is available here.
