Wouldn’t You Send Your Child to the BEST School?
YES – of course you would! At the DOJO Karate Centre each and every child is cared for as an individual with us. They grow in confidence and in the very best of knowledge. They learn manners that every parent wants, they become disciplined and grow in other areas of life like their education. Their leadership skills are developed. They learn to deal with the bully in a non-conflict manner but can handle themselves if the need arises, they make friends and have lots of fun whilst learning to look after themselves in a safe but disciplinned environment. They are recognised for their effort and achievement. Best of all you would send your child where these things are GUARANTEED.
The DOJO Karate Centre has a proven track record to be the Best Martial Arts School in the Rochdale area. To convince you, you should not only read the Testimonials but take the first step by bringing your child to the FREE Taster Lesson (+5yrs) without any obligation to join.

Sensei IRFAN ANSARI and his students stand ‘Head & Shoulders’ above anyone in the area. Our members are not only top of their class at the Club level – they are top of their class Nationally and in World rankings.
We have presented all our eveidnece to support of our claim that in the surrounding area there is NO BETTER QUALIFIED INSTRUCTOR to learn Karate from than Sensei IRFAN ANSARI. Our members also become academically gifted and progress as individual’s that contribute to the progression of the society we live in. Many have become teachers, doctors, lawyers, and members of the much valued Public Services. Some have even gone onto to become Instructors in their own right through the Club’s Coaching programs.
