"My son Charles has been going to karate here at the dojo for seven years. Sensei Jason is a great teacher, very good with kids. He really connects with them. It’s a fun place to be at; very professional, family oriented. I really recommend this place to everyone especially for boys."

Edith Farris

“Sensei has all the qualities of a great teacher – patience, enthusiasm, and high expectations. Our son has learned to listen closely and to practice leadership skills. Sensei makes sure the students have fun while they learn.”

Enicia Fisher

"I joined up for the fitness aspect, but I got so much more! When I joined up in March 2012 I was 215. Now in October I'm at 195, now THAT'S progress! But what I think the best part of it, was the people I met. I can honestly say that my life has gotten a lot better... I'm in better health...and I've learned some VERY cool things."

Robert Tibbetts

"LIKE! this dojo, Sensei Jason is very professional and my son loves taking classes here. They also offer fun nights for the kids, like pizza and games, which is pretty cool. Best dojo in Lake Elsinore!"

Esther Culp

"Great with kids makes it fun while still teaching fundamentals."

Marc Bielman

"I had the best experience ever... and it definitely was worth the time and money. It also taught me great life teachings that only karate would teach about. I became more confident and stronger because when I was younger I was very small and got picked on at school constantly... and [I] stood up for myself one day and nobody gave me hassle [from] that day forth... I give tremendous thanks to my Sensei Jason and to Shitoryu Karate itself and hopefully soon I will revisit my Dojo and Sensei once more."
