Meet Martial Arts School Owners Will Caldwell and Ryan Shinto
With a passion for helping community members stay safe while teaching the “art” of martial arts, our Instructors believe that each student can obtain their goals and objectives in life. While teaching techniques that save lives with life skills that work both on and off the mat. Our students get the best instruction possible in Kyle & Buda, TX.
Why Choose Dojo Kyle Jiu-Jitsu?
The foundation of martial arts is the focus of self-discipline incorporated into a students training. Instant gratification and the “I want it now” attitude hold people back from achieving true success. Self-restraint and self-discipline are learned traits for both children and adults. And they are central to what and how we teach.
With confidence comes enhanced self-esteem. We utilize a goals based approach that boost self-esteem levels. This creates greater self-respect and self-esteem in our martial arts students.
LISTEN TO WHAT OUR HAPPY PARENTS ARE SAYING
My 8 year old son and I both attend Dojo Kyle as beginners and love it. He had tried a different martial art I grew up in but the local school was not for us (and his ADHD). This place is perfect because he is constantly doing something, so his mind does not wander, usually with a partner. He never wants to miss class and its great that we both go because he loves to practice at home. The instruction is great and it is a fun way to stay in shape.
This is a great place to train and learn. Coach Will and Coach Ryan do an excellent job of creating a positive, friendly, and family oriented environment for adults and kids. The kids class not only works on learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu but also learns positive life lessons that encourage self-respect and respect towards their peers and adults.
An extremely comfortable, clean and supportive environment. Coach Ryan and Coach Will are extremely knowledgable and take their time to provide the best training and experience possible. Fellow members are also very supportive and helpful. I've listened to the coaches as they instruct the youth class and couldn't be more impressed by their patience coupled with appropriate corrective discipline. A great atmosphere for all.
