A Few Words From The Owner
Hi! I’m Danillo Villefort , Owner / Head Instructor here at Indio Dojo Martial Arts.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids and adults. There is nothing better than seeing new students grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt;
it’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your or your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts especially to kids in this community, I know your are going to LOVE training here!
P.S. I see you on the mats!
