Welcome To Kaizen Martial Arts

PLEASE NOTE: Kaizen Martial Arts Studio is closed. I have moved to Astoria, OR and no longer run the Tigard Martial Arts facility.


Kaizen Martial Arts Studio is a Karate school for students aged eight to eighty that are looking for a structured training environment that is upbeat and positive.

Kaizen Martial Arts Studio provides traditional Karate, taught utilizing non-traditional methods. Unlike other Martial Arts styles, we openly invite students to “Question our answers, rather than just answer our questions”, resulting in classes that are interesting for all ages.

Our Students Promise

Martial Arts Schools (Dojo), recite a School Promise (Dojo Kun) at the beginning and ending of each class. This promise provides a solid basis for one’s life both inside and outside the Dojo. The Kaizen Martial Arts promise is:

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become your character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
