WHO IS ZANSHIN DOJO?
Zanshin Dojo is comprised of a dedicated group of volunteer instructors and students with a passion for self-defense, martial arts, and individual growth. Instructors donate their time free of charge and reap the reward of watching their students grow, not only in technical skill, but physically and personally as well. With a combined 67 years of experience and extensive cross-training, instructors find joy in sharing their passion with all participants that walk through the door.
