Welcome to Our School!

Hi, my name is Manny Esmeraldo, owner of The Dojo in Stamford and Westport, CT, and I want to welcome you to our website!

We have been honored to be able to serve the Stamford area for years, and we'd be even more honored to be able to serve you and your family.

At The Dojo , we wholeheartedly believe that Martial Arts training can change lives.

So take a moment to look around our website; we offer multiple programs to fit your needs. If you see something you think might benefit you or your family, we encourage you to enroll for a No Obligation Trial.

We can’t wait to meet you!

    Do you offer a trail program?

    Do I need to be in shape to enroll for Adult classes?

    No! Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, many of our classes will still be accessible. Once you're good at them and getting closer to your goals, you'll be able to increase the intensity and try harder classes. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

    That entirely depends on your level of commitment, and how much you're enjoying classes. If you're a not sure yet that our classes are right for you, you're not required to stay for a period of time, but if you're loving it and have a goal of achieving Black Belt, we have programs that will get you there!
