Sensei Roger's Philosophy on Martial
Island Martial Arts is committed to providing the highest
quality martial arts instruction and training, in a friendly,
positive atmosphere. I have trained for a lifetime in order
to guide you through your training.

martial arts experience, can learn to defend themselves,
get a great workout, have fun, and ultimately improve as
individuals. That is our shared goal. Don't be concerned

My dojo and training style is not oriented toward tournaments
or competition -- the only person you have to compete with
I offer separate classes for adults and children, and teach
specific course material for specific age groups. This way,

that the goal of martial arts is ultimately to develop the
individual to a higher level.
To this end, I encourage you to work hard, absorb and enjoy
your training, and continue to develop along your path.
