How We’re Unique

DOUVRIS provides an unparalleled karate, fitness, and leadership experience that is unique in these ways:

01

High teacher-student ratio

many of our students become part of our leadership program, which sees higher-belt practitioners assisting lower belts in classes. It is not unusual to see one mentor for every two or three students in our karate classes.

02

World-class instruction

by professional black-belt martial artists, well trained instructors, and world champions.

03

All-inclusive membership

membership in DOUVRIS includes everything one needs to succeed, including uniform, belts, exams, access to our fitness classes, and more. We make it simple.

05

Kinship

DOUVRIS is a family business and we cultivate a family atmosphere. We welcome parents, children, and families to spend time with us. We also make it easy to foster friendships, enjoy teamwork and community.

07

Consistency and quality

our instructors are trained by us and hand-selected to ensure that the DOUVRIS experience is consistent and high quality. Douvris instructors and students also perform consistently well in both national and world championships.

09

Ability to set own pace

members can join at any time during the year, and will work at their own pace. The nature of our programs and high teacher-student ratio means that there is never a rush to catch up.

04

Program approach

our belt program is formalized and consistent, with a clear progression through defined frequent goals, and positive recognition and reinforcement as each new milestone is achieved.

06

Leadership development

through karate, we deliver skills in personal leadership that extend outward to families, friends, the workplace, and community. We offer a formal leadership development program for members with the required qualities and initiative.

08

Flexible schedule 

we provide a range of class times that makes it easy for busy members and families to maintain a successful practice, and that helps to ease scheduling burden on busy parents.

10

Character Development

Each student, 12 and under, receives a character development workbook that guides students to further  develop  the  character  and  qualities  required for  success. Each lesson in the workbook accompanies the “word of the month” that is discussed in each class.
