The DMPA Philosophy

At DPMA, we believe that martial arts training is about more than learning new skills; it's about having a good time. We offer more than outstanding instruction in a great facility, we also offer a fun, friendly, and supportive environment that goes way beyond martial arts training.

Our instructors and students aren't just training partners - they're also part of the same martial arts family. Like any family, we believe in spending quality time together. So attending classes at DPMA is only the beginning. We arrange and host a number of free and low-cost events just to give our students and their families the chance to hang out away from the dojo. Previous events have included:

  • An annual Halloween party;
  • Snow-tubing;
  • White-water rafting;
  • Hiking & mountain climbing;
  • Camping;
  • Pool parties;
  • Picnics, barbeques, and pot-lucks;
  • Parades;
  • And that's only the beginning!
