About Us Questions

  • 1. How long have you been around?

    Over 40 years

    Over this time we have developed the necessary instruction techniques to get the most out of every student.  See Our System page for more details.

  • 2. What makes you different from other martial arts centers?

    Our Style, Care, and Experience

    Our Style:


    Tae Ryu-Jitsu is an integrated style of many styles.  Our students become masters of multiple systems.  Whereas other dojos make you pay for extra classes to learn other martial arts styles they offer, or only focus on one martial arts system. It also makes transferring to our system easy as students will have a good foundation to start and still add to their skills. Our students can go to any other dojo and progress quickly as they have a broad foundation of skills.


    Our Care:


    Our classes are small and we provide individual instruction for each student and personalize everyone’s training.


    Our Experience:


    over 40 years of martial arts experience from Japan, Korea, Okinawa, and more.  However, we bring this experience to our students through a structured training program that has produced many black belts and lifelong learners.  You will study under a Martial Arts Master and become a Martial Arts Master.  See Our System page for details.

  • 3. How long does it take to become a black belt?

    It varies by student

    The time it takes varies with each student.  Our training will give you the confidence of knowing that you can defend yourself in a variety of situations no matter your belt rank.

  • 4. How many different belts are in your system?

    Seven Belts

    There are 7 belts in our system.  As students progress they earn different belts and stripes.  See Our System page for more information.
