Togisala Shorin Ryu is more than a karate school. We take pride in emphasizing the values of Respect, Discipline, Self-Confidence and of course, the application of martial arts, Self-Defense. Our students work hard on the mat and also play hard together. We know that children and adults alike learn best with active engagement and isn't having fun the best way to stay engaged? We are more than just a dojo, we are Dojo Ohana, Team Togisala.
