Benefits of training at El Dojo NYC:

Improved Confidence

Yes, you heard us! Training in martial arts improves your confidence. We believe that when we work hard and face challenges we build pride and confidence in ourselves.

Respect & appreciation for parents and guardians​

We reinforce the importance of honoring and respecting loved ones who care for us on a regular basis. Our core beliefs are awareness, gratefulness, and appreciation for the sacrifices made by those who raise us.

Control of emotions​

The ability to identify and control our emotions separates our kids from the rest. When a student is given the tools to control and identify their emotions they become a more well-rounded individual.

Community​

We have a great community of serious martial artists of all ages. Our parents are extremely supportive and there are friends to be made for everyone that visits our school. ​
