Shorin Ryu is a wonderful dojo! There is an incredible sense of community here - even as a parent I feel completely welcomed. Sensei uses positive reinforcement - I love seeing my kids' confidence level soar with the feedback! It's also open daily during the week, making it easy to get fit classes into our schedule.
This place is awesome for the entire family. Sensei Dieter is an incredible martial artist and everyone is truly welcome here. Not only are the instructors fantastic, the students are super friendly as well. Start learning karate here and you will become part of the dojo family.
Shorin Rhu is a quality Dojo. From a traditional Japanese Okinawan Karate Dojo, basic to advanced karate is modeled and taught mentally and physically. Many pupils from the St. Anthony and Woodbury Dojo have qualified for the Jr. Olympics as a result of their Shorin Rhu training. This has built confidence in our child that extends beyond karate. The year round conditioning provided by Shorin Rhu has been instrumental in our child's readiness for other sports and outdoor activities.
This dojo is owned and operated by two of the most positive people that I have ever met. Sensais Deiter and Elizabeth provide a fun, welcoming, and supportive environment for all levels to learn and grow. Their enthusiasm for Karate is contagious. The dojo also provides many opportunities every week for my husband and boys to enjoy quality time together - whether learning Kata or more recently, grappling and Kobudo (traditional weapons training)!
Shorin Ryu Minnesota has created a karate family like non other. Sensei Dieter Von Der Marwitz and Elizabeth Von Der Marwitz are very caring trainers. My son has been working at this Dojo for 6 years. He has learned so much more than Katas, Kumite and Kobudo at the highest professional level, He has learned self perseverance, self discipline and the value of staying physically fit. These are life long values. We feel so fortunate to be a part of Shorin Ryu Minnesota!
Sensei Deiter is nothing short of amazing! He took my son younger than he usually takes them when he saw his potential and has worked him hard through his comedic approach for 3 years. He is very ethical in belt advancement, always reminding the kids that they need to earn it and it's beautiful to see them beam when they do! And the South African accent is the icing! � Also, I hope my son grows up to be like Oliver.
Whether you're new to karate or looking for a change, Shorin Ryu Minnesota has a place for you. Sensei Dieter is wonderful with kids, but is also a patient and understanding instructor no matter what your age. As adults late to karate, we've learned so much in the community Dieter has created. The dojo is truly amazing and supportive for ALL students at ALL levels.
One of the best people I have ever met in this Association. Honoured to train with him and to call him my friend and brother! Osu!
A positive and supportive dojo, with excellent teachers, students, and families.
Couldn't imagine a better dojo. It is great
Great dojo and great teacher! Dieter Sensei is the real deal and it was an honor to be invited to teach/train at his camp #shorinkan
