"Searching for that little piece of tranquility with a serene and secure environment inside the city of Torrance and you haven’t had any luck? Well look no further and welcome to the Kaizen Dojo. Upon my initial visit inside the Kaizen Dojo, I experienced calmness with a sense of well-being and balanced harmony which seemed to fill the entire Dojo the minute we entered through the door. We knew instantly that our search was over and that we had found what we had been searching for in a Karate Dojo. Guiding you through your journey along the path of continual improvement in the style of Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate is Sensei William Christopher Ford, a free-spirited and highly talented individual with 40 years of expertise, who inspires his students with his positive energy flow, dynamic techniques and teaching style. I highly recommend anyone searching for a not so ordinary Karate studio to stop by and meet an extraordinary friendly and the highly energetic Sensei William Christopher Ford. You won’t regret it!"

"I've known Sensei Ford for awhile now... He's a very caring, patient and open-minded martial artist and comes from a very respected Karate lineage. If you are an adult looking for traditional martial arts training as well as simple self defense techniques, I'd encourage you to come out to see what Kaizen Dojo has to offer. If you are a parent looking for a place for your children/teens to train marial arts, I feel Kaizen dojo is that place...constant encouragement (and feedback), commitment to detail (technique, movement & mental capabilities)and an all-around positive environment(clean,matted training area, restrooms & great staff, no egos)...I encourage you to visit Kaizen dojo, meet with Sensei Ford and try a class or two...it'll be worth your time and effort!"
"The Kaizen Dojo is a great place to learn martial arts. The instructors are very thorough and make learning exciting. They are also wonderful with kids. Give them a try and you'll see. I highly recommend them."
"We loved watching you teach your kids! Thank you for your patience with my son."M. Morimoto
"Sensei Ford at the Kaizen Dojo is a true master in Martial Arts with his knowledge and experience in various styles and with weapons. He has the wisdom to see the practical applications and teaches us to not get caught up in the "classical mess". I enjoy watching Sensei Ford with his style in teaching children and making the environment for them to have fun. Sensei Ford is also so kind, humble, patient and caring to all people, in and outside his dojo. There is such good spirtual Jedi-like light in him. My teenage son and daughter also trains with me and we travel over 30 miles to the Kaizen dojo. I highly recommend training at the Kaizen Dojo for your kids and yourself."
