GEM Martial Arts
A PEACEFUL, POSITIVE, FAMILY-ORIENTED DOJO
We, Renshi Gail and Renshi Zach, are mother and son who have been training and teaching together for over 20 years.
GEM Martial Arts is about learning, family, helping our community and becoming better people. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the amazing, life-long benefits of training in the martial arts.
We teach Isshinryu (which means One Heart Way).
Isshinryu is an Okinawan martial art founded by Master Tatsuo Shimabuku in 1953.

What Our Students And Parents say
Gail has the ability to provide structure and smiles at the same time…such a rare find! Parents feel at east to leave their children in Gail’s instruction because they know that they are safe and in the best of hands.
My son Gabriel and I joined Gem Martial Arts March 2016. It is a great atmosphere for a karate dojo and a happy family environment for kids and parents to train, everyone it’s close like a tight knit family. There’s no pressure, no contracts and lots of fun activities & tournaments, fundraisers and fun things to do. It is very professional and in my opinion the best karate school. You get promoted when you earn it and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I absolutely recommend the school to anyone who wants to learn real Martial Arts and have fun in the process.
My kids and I have been at GEM Martial Arts for close to 7 years. For lack of better terms, we are “lifers”. This school teaches so much more than just karate. Respect, self confidence and dedication are just a few life lessons we have received from Sensei Gail and Sensei Zach. We are family and wouldn’t change a thing. GEM Martial Arts has been an amazing influence on our family as a whole!! ❤️
I highly recommend this karate school to anyone, no matter how young or old.
