You have always wanted to try karate but it feels like it’s too late.

Martial Arts seems like it’s for kids and the big classes, where everyone is either a teenager or an instructor, are less than inviting. 

You can imagine how good it would feel to earn your black belt but there doesn’t seem to be a class that fits your age and ability.

Let’s be honest, with work and family, who has the time to go to class regularly anyway?

At TransformDojo, karate is for adults, just like you, who are looking to get fit, become a little more adventurous, and want a smaller, more personalized class.

We know this is all new to you and even just walking in the doors can be nerve racking.  You are probably thinking your memory is terrible and you are going to make a fool of yourself if you do jump into class.  We want you to know this is how most of us felt our first time in a class and we are happy to explain and demonstrate every punch, step, and technique as many times as you want.


We’d like to invite you to participate in (or watch) a session so you can see what working toward your black belt would be like for you.

At TransformDojo, we take the guesswork out of training and practice.

At Home Supplement

We all forget the new things by the time we get home, so we have videos of Sensei Jacob talking through and demonstrating each move for you to follow along at home.

Flexible Class Schedule

We offer morning, evening, and weekend classes, available to fit your schedule.

Small Class Size

You won’t find any classes of 10, 12, or 15 here. All our classes are maxed out at 6 people to ensure the personalized experience you deserve.

To keep you progressing, our program has three main focuses: Basics, Forms, and Defenses


This is the foundation of everything else and we always start here.  We teach you all the punches, kicks, and moves you will use in the rest of your training.


This may not be the most practical part of our training but this is where we master balance and learn to use our whole body to move and react.


We start by working each technique to the air to get the moves down. When you are ready, we practice our punch and grab defenses with partners to master them.

Step 1

Live a more fit and adventurous life.

Feel better and have the strength and fitness to do everything you used to do, and more!

Being overweight, over 50, and having breathing issues I knew I needed to to make a change but wasn't sure where to start.  I tried karate years ago and decided to do a trial at TransformDojo. The personal trainer level workouts in the karate classes has helped me breathe and feel better than I have in years.

I was really nervous and almost didn’t pull into the parking lot, but I’m so glad I did. You put me at ease. I wasn’t sure I was ready to come in here and I sat in the car and talked myself into it. Now I feel great!

Joe L.

I was scared I was going to become a weak old woman. I needed an exercise program that would help me get fit.  Never thought it would be Karate or Kickboxing, but I love training with Sensei Jacob at TransformDojo!

Which Martial Art Is Best For Self Defense?

While at one time every martial art was focused on being able to defend yourself as the highest priority, not every school currently has that as the number one. Now, the world we live in no longer demands this of every school. This means that where you train and who you learn from has more control over if a martial art will be great for self defense or not.
