ABOUT THE DOJO

Way of Japan started in 1971, when Abe Belardo and a handful of students set up a small Delano dojo in a Catholic church’s auxiliary room. Since that time, Sensei Belardo has promoted countless black belts, trained world class kickboxers, promoted hundreds of tournaments and kickboxing shows, and is a respected boxing, Mixed Martial Arts, and kickboxing judge.

 

Currently, Way of Japan is providing beginner, intermediate and advanced classes in Shotokan Karate affiliated with Shotokan Karate-Do International Federation.
