The Yama Neko Dojo is not open for business but it is open for practice for my friends, old and new, who want to practice what I can teach. I am teaching now for fun and frolics, not money, so there is no charge for classes. If you’d like to join a class, please contact me and I’ll see how you might fit in. Thank you.

I have 45+ years experience with a variety of martial systems and extensive research into the differences between a martial art and practical self defence.

The classes are small and very stable, social and friendly - a great support group.

I provide training in a number of martial arts:

women's self defence

You would never drive a car without a licence, or buy a rifle without learning the laws about owning and using it. Don’t get in a self defence situation without knowing your rights and responsibilities!
