"Sensei Geoff Mires is an excellent instructor and mentor. He runs his dojo with the utmost professionalism, and his enthusiasm, patience, and concern for each of his students is unrivaled as an instructor. Membership is very affordable here, compared to other dojos in the area, and the quality of the program is outstanding. For children or adults interested in
getting in an excellent workout while learning a great skill in a positive and nurturing atmosphere, definitely
check this place out!"

"Finding this dojo and Sensei Geoff has been a huge blessing to our entire family!
My six year old son is almost unrecognizable from his first lesson, when he was easily frustrated, grounchy, and self-conscious. Whether by instinct or vast experience, Sensei Geoff understood exactly how to handle him, and now he's thriving there.
He prides himself on his progress, he's much more confident and strong (mentally and physically), and he's more respectful and disciplined than before,
in all aspects of his life."

"We have been going to Mire Martial Arts for over 3 years now. My kids love these classes! Sensei Geoff is really good with the kids, he really cares, and makes the classes fun. The students are all friends, and
Geoff encourages the camaraderie

"My daughter has been going to Sensei Geoff for 4 years and my son just started this year. They love it. I love how it teaches my daughter confidence and my son discipline. Sensei Geoff has made the dojo an extension of his family- he loves all the kids and kids love him. Truly a great community fostering love and respect."

"My 6 year old absolutely lives for "karate days." Her self esteem and confidence are soaring and she is learning body and self control while also learning karate technique. Geoff teaches in a fun, energetic atmosphere and the kids and adults alike enjoy every minute of it. I am also a student of Geoff's and I look forward to my adult class all week long! Geoff teaches that respect and responsibility are not an option in life and that is an invaluable lesson, one that as a parent, I appreciate immensely!"

"If you're looking for a place for your child to exercise, learn how to stand up for themselves, learn respect for self and others and learn a wonderful style of karate, this Dojo would be a great fit."

"I recently joined with Mires Martial Arts. Because my age and size I didn't think I could join, but Sensei Geoff had no problems with me joining. Wonderful class to be in, great people, great all around environment. My 6 yr old niece also goes there. She is now an orange belt.
She loves going to class, meeting new friends, and has learned a lot. Her mother, my younger sister, is a brown belt, training for her black belt. It's a family affair for us. Everyone should join in on the fun!!!!! Sensei Geoff is amazing!"
