Shingi Dojo Karate MMA is a cool gym for start learning different skills in MMA for children, beginners and advanced practitioners.

He and his team are doing an impressive job on teaching children (classes starting at 3 years old) with playful and safe manners.
Lessons are much more intense with adults and advanced levels, where Master Kenji is more engaged with his gentle but determined persona and teaching skills with his experience as Japan champion.
Training is practical and very active, classes are not only great for acquire self-defense and fighting skills but also for weight loss goals and a better body fit.
Yoga classes are also available as part of the scheduled classes.
