I got vouchers through living social for both of my young sons. I emailed the school and immediately the President Igor emailed me back and set up for them to go to class the very next day. When we arrived we were greeted by Sensei Jose and immediately he commanded respect from my boys and they gave it, and my husband and I knew that this is what would help them with focus, discipline, and respect for both each other, themselves, and others. We had planned on enrolling them anyway, but the vouchers gave us a chance to check out the school without making such a financial commitment. It didn't matter because we knew right away that this was the school that we were going to stick with. The boys enjoyed the class and learned so much in just one hour, and it goes to show that kids truly crave discipline and structure. Sensei makes the kids do squats when they don't follow the rules and while that seems intimidating to a parent after a few times that the kids had to do it they quickly respected him and figured out that if they followed his instructions there would be no consequence and as a parent when I try to discipline them I get whining and stomping and Sensei got none of that, in fact he got more respect than when they first met him. When class was over I thought I would hear "I don't want to come back" and instead I heard "Can we come back tomorrow?" Coming to D-Dojo so far has been the best move so far!!! Igor and Jose have been wonderful!
