Our Email & Phone Number

(423) 290-6518


If you decide to call or E-mail, please give us your first and last name, a phone number, your occupation, and a short message about the reason for the call or email. Please ensure we receive this information or we will not be able to return your inquiry. As of late, we have had inquiries that have not been returned due to lack of the above. We prefer to be emailed first, then in a few days if we do not respond, please call and let us know there is an email. If you call, you must leave a message, we don't return or answer calls that do not leave messages. Also, please ensure that this is something you really want to do and is not merely a passing curiosity. This art takes many years to begin to understand, and the big picture is viewed only in glimpses.   

If we do not immediately answer or return your call we may be busy training, working, or spending time with family. We will get back with you as soon as humanly possible and give you the answers you seek.

When Hitler came for the Jews, I was not a Jew, therefore I did not speak. And when hitler came for the Catholics, I was not a Catholic, and therefore I did not speak. And when Hitler came for the unions and industrialists, I was not a member of the unions and I did not speak. Then Hitler came for me and the Protestant Church, ....................and there was no one left to speak.
Pastor Martin Niemoller on his way to the Nazi gas chamber. 1945

The training hall does not make the Dojo, and it is not in and of itself the Dojo. Wherever we are, be it inside a building, or out in the sunshine, wherever our members are training, there is the Dojo. The Dojo is a time & place for its members to train in Budo. It has members and friends that form long time friendships. Our Dojo has several members and one member does not make the whole, nor does the whole ignore the one. The Blackbelt does not make the school, the group does, therefore, in helping each other, we help ourselves.
