Bushidokan is a variation of karate, judo and jujitsu transformed into flexible, street-ready self-defense. Mr. Jim Harrison founded the Bushidokan system in 1964 to be a unique mental and physical development process requiring time and dedication, endeavored by many, but mastered by few.
My three kids have been coming for years. Mr. Stillwell does an incredible job teaching them discipline while still having fun!
Our son, who is on the autism spectrum has greatly benefited under Steve’s teaching. He has become an excellent student, who now actually helps other students with their routines. An excellent environment for any child, but Steve’s work with my son has been amazing.
We first brought our son to Steve Stillwell in May 2015. Little did we know we stumbled upon the best karate dojo in the metro! Stillwell is a skilled instructor on so many levels. My husband played baseball for Steve in the past, so we knew Mr. Stillwell was a motivated and experienced teacher. He offers top-notch martial arts training and has personality to boot!
For almost 10 years we have been fortunate to have Mr. Stillwell teach several of our children. I can't recommend Blue Valley Bushidokan highly enough
My son has worked with Mr. Stillwell for over 4 years now. Not only has he grown in his martial training, but his self confidence and leadership skills have tremendously improved, and he's doing things we never thought he would be capable of doing. Thanks to Steve and the other instructors/ students at the dojo.
BV Bushidokan Martial Arts Academy is a great place for children to learn discipline, confidence and self control. My daughters enjoy how Mr. Stillwell makes the classes energetic and fun. I have and will continue to recommend BV Bushidokan to everyone because you will be more than satisfied with your experience.
Training with Steve helped me as an athlete. Body control, discipline, hand quickness, explosiveness, etc. and he is a great teacher.
The years I spent with Mr. Stillwell at the dojo were some of the most memorable years of my childhood. I learned discipline, and techniques that will forever help me feel more prepared to deal with danger and defend myself should I need to. I loved coming each week and learning all the wisdom being taught at Blue Valley Bushidokan. Mr. Stillwell is a master teacher, who makes you want to succeed.
Anything can be bought or cheaply made, but that which is earned through hard work and sacrifice has the greatest and dearest value.
