What We Believe

We believe that all martial arts have merit.  We believe in the ethical practice of the martial arts. We believe that the martial arts are a vehicle for achieving our goals. We believe that we can master ourselves through hard training and commitment. We believe that, first and foremost, martial arts training is for self-defense and personal protection.

What Students Say

Sensei Campos began instructing in 1969 and has taught thousands of students over almost four decades.  Some of them have been kind enough to send him messages many years later expressing how much their training has meant to them.  Here are just two email messages he has received in 2007:

Sensei Campos,

It has been over 20 years and I apologize for not keeping in touch. The internet is a wonderful tool and this evening I used it to stir up some old memories. I reviewed every page of the ZDK-USA website and thought it very well done.

Once again I am drawn back to Martial Arts and have recently trained in a studio within walking distance of my home in Alexandria, Virginia. It is the (Club Name Removed) and the discipline is (Style Removed) Karate. I attended a group class last evening and as I have done several times in the past with other dojos, left the class disappointed.

The training I received from you at Zen Do Kai over 20 years ago is still with me and is undoubtedly the best martial arts instruction I have or possibly ever will receive. Your standards of excellence are unmatched and your attention to detail remarkable. I still punch, kick and block with the intensity and control that you instilled in me years ago. There was only one other student that attended last evening’s class that had the desire to match my enthusiasm.

I miss those Saturday afternoons in Johnstown doing knuckle pushups on the hardwood floor and endlessly sparring with Chuck Brooks and Jim Simek. Thank you for providing the best martial arts training, discipline and guidance to not only succeed in the dojo but in life.

V/R, Paul Onorato

Hello Sensei Campos, 

Its been almost 30 years since a young colored male came to your studio with his mom and his sister.  I remember observing the training and the excitement of just learning.  Shortly after I joined the training.  I was strong enough to compete under your leadership at the MARS in Cleveland.   These small achievements changed my life and gave me the discipline to see a clear path in life. Your service to the community builds strong and secure man and women.  I stand with all your past students looking back at my Sensei with respect.  I am sure students/customers have said thanks before.  Let me join them!  I never forgot you Sensei. 

Mr. Campos if you can send a message to all in the Zen do Kai community for me.  Follow the path of life with honesty and respect. Do the best for people and give all the love you can before its to late.   I will never forget you Sensei. Peace and love!
