Dojos by the Weekday - U.S.            Dojos by the Weekday - Canada

Do-jo.  "Place of the Way"

"Do" means way, as in karate-do  ( the way of karate ).  "Jo" can mean different things in Japanese, but in this instance, it means "place."

Most students think the word dojo means "club" and "practice area".  We use these meanings as well, but it is always important to remember that this is the place where you learn your karate.  And karate is not merely techniques, it is learning about yourself, about your character.  When we do our karate, it is a form of active meditation; when we do our katas, we put a bit of our spirit in each move that we do; when we are sparring and someone is getting us with lots of punches and kicks, this is where we learn to turn and face our attacker and defeat him.  This is where you learn to overcome your weaknesses and develop new strengths.
