MEET OUR STAFF

PROFESSIONALISM IN APPEARANCE, ACTION, AND PROCESSES.

All Takeshin Dojo staff members will project, in fact, exude, Professionalism in appearance, action, and processes. Plan, prep the plan, and proceed. What we say and how we project ourselves matters. We shall look to offer clear teachings, devoid of extravagance, ego, and contrived imagery but also realizing that we represent and the inherent benefits of this study are needed in today’s society. 


Part of our professionalism is to avoid discussions in the dojo pertaining to controversial emotional topics. For example, politics or religions beliefs. While these topics have their place and function in life, the dojo is not the right location to engage in such banter.
Our staff are expected to be prepared, in good form, and aware of the day’s expectations and challenges. Time management is one of our most valued skills. 


We value those most who avoid making excuses and rise to make the most of each day. Seek your ultimate potential. That is one of our mottos.
