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.

Programs

We teach Isshinryu (which means One Heart Way).
Isshinryu is an Okinawan martial art founded by Master Tatsuo Shimabuku in 1953.
Classes are fun and exciting!

Little Gems

A karate class specifically designed for younger children. Classes are shorter, fun and keep the students moving.

Kid Classes

Classes are fun and exciting.  Requirements are broken down in a manner that is easy to learn and retain. Classes are 45 minutes long and will include, warm-ups, stretching, and martial arts techniques and requirements.

Tween & TEEN Classes

Classes are fun and exciting. Requirements are broken down in a manner that is easy to learn and retain. All our tweens & teens train together, rank does not matter in these hour long classes.

Big GEMs Classes

Our Big GEMs (adult) classes are fun and informative. All our Big GEMs train together, rank does not matter. With this class you will learn and grow, and become a brilliant GEM!

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.

Ezio

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.

Jen

Our 4 year old son has been attending GEM for about 4 months and it has exceeded all expectations. They are very patient and engaged with the young ones. They are committed to making the class equal parts fun yet focused on the fundamentals. We know of other martial arts schools in the area where they have similar aged kids breaking boards, kicking all over the place, etc. and not building the proper foundation for long term success. The flexibility in full time and part time offerings is great for our scheduling needs. Highly recommend for anyone thinking of switching schools or having their son or daughter begin martial arts training.

Is this right for you and your child?
