Our school’s location pays respect to the traditions of the martial arts with its elegant, Japanese-inspired design. Originally built as the West Eugene Post Office, the building is now one of the Northwest’s largest and most modern martial arts training facilities.
Sitting on nearly one acre, the 7,500 square foot air-conditioned building has three matted training areas, abundant training equipment, separate dressing rooms for children and adults, showers, viewing and waiting areas with Wi-Fi access, and even a martial arts library.
The main training area has over 2,300 square feet of tatami mats sitting on a “floating floor.” The room has no obstructions and a high ceiling. Additionally, there is a 1,600 square foot training room with heavy bags, makiwara (karate striking post), chin-up bars, crash pads and a climbing rope. A third, smaller mat room, is perfect for individual training and semi-private classes.
All training floors are covered with Swain Sportsmats Brand Gold Medal Tatami, which are considered to be the best martial arts mats in the world.
