Why we are the Best Martial Arts School in Sacramento

Tokon Martial Arts is different because we believe in delivering the best in terms of martial arts training, character development and self-cultivation.

True character development, mental and physical strength can only be developed over time and through hard work and repetition. That is why our students learn how to work extremely hard physically and mentally. Real life skills, self-esteem and confidence that require dedication, setbacks, disappointments and years of commitment are not taught or enforced by most other schools because it could create a conflict with the students monthly payments. Yes at our school not everybody has what it takes to become a Tokon black belt. But true martial arts skills MUST only be in the hands of worthy students that went through those forging times. This must be the standard and measurement and what you are looking for.  Isn't this why you come to us? We are not a child care or day care facility. High five and attendance awards for showing up is not what will develop a strong human being. Even though this might impress at first sight, you will quickly discover that schools that have their efforts on all those side gimmicks have nothing deeper to offer, physically, mentally and spiritually. We are different and that is why students that look for the real martial arts experience come to us. This is why our program speaks to adults and children alike. The path of self-cultivation is never a question of age but rather of a wise person that wants to keep growing. 

What our members have to say about us

Laurie A.

A true Dojo, with fantastic instruction. Not a corporate belt mill designed to wring money out of you. If  you are thinking about putting your child in Karate classes, this is hands down the best place you could choose.

Myla M.

Great Dojo. My kids and my husband love the program. Teaches Shotokan Karate and does a lot of body conditioning exercises.

Christopher G.

I began practicing Shotokan Karate in the 80's and (unfortunately) went on a long break in the 90's. As it turned out, the break was too long. It took me a while to get started again. Mainly because I was not able to find a Dojo that matched my expectations. Well, to make it short: I found it in Tokon!!! Sensei Christina and Sensei Marcus, the owners of Tokon Martial Arts, are great.
