Q&A with Deborah Kalab, Director & Owner

What sets your business apart from your competition?

Our Philosophy is that all children should be able to learn gymnastics in a non-Competitive atmosphere. Our classes are geared toward specific age groups, and we work with each child individually in a fun-filled program. Our instructors guide children of all Physical capabilities.

What was the inspiration for starting this business?

I was a competitive gymnast for many years and that is not for every child?partly because of the long grueling hours in the gym. I came up with the concept of children learning gymnastics to the best of their ability to gain strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination regardless of their athleticism. These four basics build self confidence for life.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

The staff at the gym are all past students who have grown to love the sport of gymnastics. My staff is dedicated to making every child's dream of learning how to do a cartwheel come true. The manager at the gym has been with us since we opened and is very dedicated to making our families happy.

What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?

_ We have many awesome reactions from the children everyday as they learn each new skill, but our best reaction is when our students grow up and bring their own children._

What?s your favorite part about your job?

My favorite part of my job is when I see a child smile as they learn. There is nothing like a smile on a little one's face to make for a great day!

"The finest blade stays in the scabbard." It might seem counterintuitive to relate this mantra to a sword-fighting technique, but it rules the Iaido sword combat class at Okami Dojo. That's because the most important aspect of Iaido is avoiding bloodshed altogether. When combat is inevitable, Iaido teaches practitioners to control each movement precisely: removal of sword from scabbard, strike, wiping the blade clean, and re-sheathing it.

Along with Iaido, the dojo's instructors also teach another Japanese-born martial art: jujutsu. Through forceful pins, locks, and throws, a jujutsu practitioner can incapacitate an armed opponent with ease.
