Positive Mental Attitude
Parents love that our Martial Arts program instills a positive mental attitude while improving strength, agility, balance, and flexibility. Through the discipline of martial arts training & our integrated Dojo Virtues curriculum, together your family will learn success-building habits such as goal setting and perseverance.
American Dojo has a fantastic staff that goes above and beyond. They not only teach martial arts skills, but they mentor students in life skills. The academy has a wide range of instructors that connect to every age level. I originally signed my son up for classes and he enjoyed it so much that I thought I would give it a try. I really enjoy the workout I get and this is something that I can experience with my son and connect with him on another level. I highly recommend giving it a go. Once you start you will be hooked.— Traci N.
Master Konley and all the instructors at American Dojo are amazing. As an adult taking the classes I am amazed at the positive impact the instructors have on the young students. They are teaching them such valuable life lessons that they will carry for the rest of their lives. The discipline, focus, and self confidence they are instilling on the students, including the adult students, is great.— Joe M.
I recommend American Dojo to anyone with children. I can tell they take true pride in working with these kids. Keep up the good work I appreciate all the instructors thanks so much for all you do.— Cynthia J.
Started going here with my 2 girls and wife a couple months ago, and it is far cooler than had ever thought. The staff is very energetic and respectful. Facility is clean and orderly.— Nolan L.
American dojo is the real deal. I have been to other schools and they simply don't compare. Master Konley and his staff do an excellent job with the children and adults. The hapkido you learn here is second to none.— Allen S.

“For the students, Black Belt becomes symbolic of excellence not only in Martial Arts, but in all areas of life,” says Dean Konley, 7th Degree Black Belt and Chief Master Instructor at American Dojo.
About The Konley family
American Dojo was founded by Dean Konley in 1994 and is owned and operated by the Konley Family. As a second-generation homeschool family, the Konleys have been a part of the homeschooling movement since 1985 when Virginia (mom) began 2nd grade as a homeschool student. Having now completed her 13th year as a homeschooling mom, Virginia enjoys the educational benefits of martial arts for her own children ages 19, 16, 11 & 8.
It is the homeschool philosophy of inter-generational learning that inspired the Konleys to include Family Classes as an important part of the martial arts programming at their academy.
“Martial Arts is such a wonderful combination of creative art form and physical discipline, the benefits are broad, and it compliments my philosophy of education,” says Virginia, who is a 2nd degree black belt and mother of 5.
