My family and I will be moving to the Columbus area. I am looking to find a really top notch Karate Dojo for my son. He is 11 and has been very involved in Karate for the past 6 years. He has shown a lot of promise and I want to be sure to find a great dojo for him so he can continue to pursue his passion.
We want a dojo that holds high expectations for its students, yet treats the students with respect. It is important that the dojo reinforces the value of goal setting and hard work, that a high value be places on a staff that exemplifies good sportsmanship, humility and positively-respectfully support teammates.
He currently is studying under the Okinawa-goju discipline but we are not opposed to exploring the option of other disciplines. In addition to his sparring and kata classes, he is also involved in a demonstration team and a combastics (karate/gymnastics combined) team. We will likely be living in one of the east/southeast suburbs of Columbus but would be willing to travel a reasonable (30 minutes) distance.
Thanks for any recommendations.

Just came across your thread. You might want to check out a Chinese guy named Master Haun (Han?). Last I knew he was in the Grandview area. One of the finest. My son learnt from him and he is highly thought of in the Columbus area. Perhaps others have heard of him and can be more helpful. Best wishes!
