We believe that training in the martial arts provides the most complete combination of mental, physical, and emotional training.
Our approach is to apply all aspects of martial arts training to promote one's complete personal development.
It is true that you will become stronger, healthier and better balanced, in addition to learning life saving self-defense techniques. However, you will also find great value in the things you learn about yourself and the benefits of your training, as applied to life’s daily challenges.
Our Non-Profit Status and Business Attitude
The Harp Dojo was founded in 1978 and incorporated in 1983 as a 501 (c) (3) Not-For-Profit Educational Facility.
This simply means that no one person can benefit financially from the operation of the business. As a matter of fact, no instructor receives financial (or other) compensation for teaching classes. We believe that motivation from the heart, and not the wallet, produces a better teaching/learning experience. All proceeds from membership dues are dedicated to maintaining the facility.
Our memberships are affordable, family members receive discounted rates and no contracts are required.
Our Instructional staff is comprised of hard working, dedicated adult black belts. We believe that the best way to learn is to teach and the best way to receive is to give.
Combined, our teaching staff can boast of well over 100 years teaching experience.
Our members range in ages from 6 to over 60 years old. We are not training to win trophies or MMA titles; we are here for practicing all aspects of martial arts to help us become strong, well-balanced individuals.
Our programs are divided according to age and rank. You will find yourself in classes suited to a variety of learning styles, with supportive peers. Children will find classes fun, open and welcoming with nothing intimidating.
Classes are held 6 days a week. As a student at the Harp Dojo you are encouraged to attend as many classes as you wish. There is no limit to the number of classes a member can attend. The more classes you attend, the faster you will learn and progress. A minimum of 2 classes per week is suggested.
The facility is also available for independent training if you wish to practice when there are no classes in session.
