I have been a student at this dojo for over 10 years. I started class thinking i would take for a while, while I enjoyed it and got something out of it. 10 years later I am still growing and learning and enjoying Sensei John McGonigle and his excellent classes. His approach is based in real life reaction attack scenarios and his classes reflect that while not losing the deep history and tradition of karate's Okinawan roots. I couldn't say enough good about this great school.
