At North Shore Dojo, the wellness of our athletes and families is paramount.
In accordance with the Illinois shelter-in-place order, our facility will be closed through the end of May.
Our dojo has been thoroughly cleaned and will be ready to open, when it is safe.
As a community, we'll work together to establish practices that will protect the health and wellness of all who enter our dojo.
We look forward to when we can all be back together.
North Shore Dojo is not just another karate school.
We are a family-based dojo, teaching Shotokan karate, and we encourage individuals to work beyond their limitations and garner the necessary skills for becoming a karate champion and for all endeavors.
Within a typical class, students focus on all essential aspects of physical fitness including physical conditioning and strengthening, stretching, endurance building, and the integration of the mind-body interactions. These special attributes have led to the development of this award and medal winning internationally renowned program.
