About Green Mountain Dojo
Green Mountain Dojo’s Kyokushin Karate program began in the Boston area in the early 1980’s. GMD has since continued to bring students and families together in a healthy, educational and safe environment for more than 35 years. GMD relocated in 2004 to the beautiful green mountains of central Vermont.
The Green Mountain Dojo is a traditional school that strives to maintain the Kyokushin system and principles as taught by the late Grandmaster Masutatsu Oyama. A standardized international rank syllabus helps to regulate a well-rounded curriculum and also helps students to direct their efforts and goals.
Our commitment is to teach students more than karate technique. Our traditional approach addresses overall health; both mind and body, and has numerous benefits including a higher respect for self and others, improved self-discipline, and a much greater ability to focus. Improved focus translates to better performance in school, work and other activities. In addition, students improve their self-confidence through their physical achievements which greatly elevates self-esteem.
Consistent training helps students to develop the tools and attitude necessary to deal more effectively with personal challenges and to bring about more balance and harmony in everyday life.
