The Karate Dojo in Jackson, New Jersey is run by Head Instructor/Owner and 4th Degree Black Belt Master Eric Alders, who founded a unique martial arts system called Yuugou-Ryu (Fusion System). Our elite curriculum combines Tae Kwon Do, Kenpo, Hapkido, Aikido, Goju-Ryu, Japanese Jiu Jitsu and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which provides a complete fusion of martial arts from the ground up!
We pride ourselves on the fact that our Dojo (or martial arts training hall) promotes a family environment where all students/families become part of our extended dojo family. No one here is just a number. The Karate Dojo goes one step beyond. We promote a positive social environment, help to create long lasting friendships, encourage participation and leadership in our community and in charities, as well as promote an environment of success and achievement. In addition, The Karate Dojo does not focus on just “punching and kicking” but rather as a life skills and character building, educational institute .
Of course self-defense training in our elite Yuugou-Ryu system trains our students with a complete mix of 6 major styles of martial arts which provides training from the ground up. It’s essential for a prospective student or parent to understand that our style, our quality of instruction, our variety of programs/classes available as well as our character education and community involvement truly separates us from our competition. Our personal approach and commitment to each student is apparent from your 1st class on.
