STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

Why did you choose this Dojo?

 
"I chose this dojo because this art form is the most practical to life situations and Hanshi Siringano is the most decorated, and respected in the Martial Arts community. I thoroughly researched all of the Martial Arts community in New York City and some in New Jersey. I looked into family lineage tracing each art form as far back as I could. The origins of this system traced back further then anyone through reliable and respected sources. Goshindo Kempo Karate and Samurai Jiu Jitsu are the real deal under the great instruction of Hanshi Siringano. "
 
Why did you choose this Dojo?

"The reason why I chose this Dojo was because I have always been interested in studying the particular Martial Arts you teach. Plus, the Dojo setting is perfect. Hanshi does not lock his students into a contract like many Dojos do. He teaches because of his love and understanding of the Martial Arts. There are no interruptions and people staring through a giant window."
 
Why did you choose this Dojo?

"I was told by multiple people what a class act, knowledgeable, serious and experienced Dojo this is.  After my first meeting with Hanshi I knew this was the place for long term Jiu Jitsu & Karate experience."
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

"For someone who is looking for a Dojo and an art to study I have only a few things I can say. If you want to learn a true art that has not been filtered and stripped of its roots, then this is for you. Hanshi demands loyalty and above all respect because when studying under him he becomes not only your teacher but a friend as well. Everyone has jobs and life issues and this is unavoidable, but dedication is probably the most important thing needed in the system and excuses are easily recognized."
 
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

"I would tell people if they are looking to get into Martial Arts they should do so by joining this Dojo because of the privacy and detail involved in your teaching. Plus, they would be gaining knowledge of the martial arts from a true Grand Master."


 

What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

"This is the real deal!!  We are not a dojo that is looking for the fluff!  We are here to train, learn and become experts in self defense while staying mentally focused.  At the same time continuing to pursue a positive life style (i.e. continuing to be upstanding citizens, helping out those in need, protecting those that are weak) Hanshi has had amazing life experience with his past training, that was passed on from his father, now he is passing it on to us!"
Describe Hanshi Siringano.

"I can only describe Hanshi as a truly great man. Hanshi is an ordinary man with great passion for this art. Understanding and informative of all aspects of life and the art. One of the few true Martial Artists around." 



 
Describe Hanshi Siringano.

"I would describe Hanshi as being a humble man who has an eye for detail. Very respectful toward his students and everything around him. Hanshi has an enormous amount of patience in his teachings and for his students. As a student of Hanshi Siringano’s you leave each of his classes feeling more confident about yourself."
 
Describe Hanshi Siringano.

"Hanshi is a great man with a lifetime of Martial Arts knowledge. He is a regular guy, like you and me, who has a good balance of family life, work and his Dojo. Hanshi pushes his students to maximize their potential while explaining each and every step. I view Hanshi as a person who leads by example and having a mutual respect from student to Sensei and Sensei to student creating a great environment to learn and enjoy the Goshindo way."

Why did you choose this Dojo?

"Because of the style of Jiu Jitsu taught here."
Why did you choose this Dojo?

"This Dojo is the REAL Dojo."
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

"I would tell them that this dojo is the real thing. Its not a watered down "Tiger Shulman's" type system. It's hard work and it takes dedication to train here, but like anything that is worth something it isn't easy. When you train here you leave class knowing and understanding not only the technique but why and how it works. You are also confident that if you should ever need to use anything that you learn you will be able to do it out of instinct."
 
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

"Don't ever sacrifice reality and tradition for flash and nonsense."
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

Describe Hanshi Siringano.

"Hanshi is a good and honest man who teaches like no one else."
Describe Hanshi Siringano.

"Hanshi firstly is amazing in his Martial Art abilities. His techniques are flawless and when he demonstrates the techniques you understand that this is truly an art form. His style of teaching is highly effective as is the system itself. When you see him in the dojo you can see that he has been trained for this from the time he was a child. You can understand that he is the best because he was trained by the best, his father. His devotion to this system and his students isn't just a job or hobby but a love."

 
Describe Hanshi Siringano.

"He is someone who generally cares for the well being of each student not only in the Martial Arts but in life as well."
Describe Hanshi Siringano.

His Mastery of the Art is inspiring.

Why did you choose this Dojo?

"This Dojo is fair and honest and is considered the best."
Why did you choose this Dojo?

"
After watching about 5 minutes of a class in session, I knew this was something special. Hanshi has an unbelievable reputation in the Martial Arts field. And anybody who knows anything about Martial Arts knows about the Siringano family. It is a true honor to be part of this system and people respect you for it.
 
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

"If you want to learn a real style of Martial Arts with real lineage, in a Dojo with practically one-on-one teaching, this is the place."
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

"Here, you learn how to protect yourself in real life."
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

"This is one of the only Dojos where you earn everything you get without paying for rank, etc."
What would you tell someone else who was looking for a Dojo?

If you are looking for traditional training under a Hanshi who is well respected for his skill and knowledge, you came to the right place. Being part of this system is an honor. Not everybody is accepted but the ones who are; are considered to be lucky and the best of the best.
 
Describe Hanshi Siringano.

"He is a genuine Martial Artist.
He is interested in all his students and is an excellent teacher, giving care and attention to all students, new and old."

Describe Hanshi Siringano .

"Very fair. Experienced.
Someone who can be trusted and commands respect."
Describe Hanshi Siringano.

He is a man who really cares about his family and students. And if you are a student of his, you are part of his family. He really has a love for his system and it shows. You have to experience it for yourself to really understand.
 


Why Train Here?

The answer to that question is simple . . .TRADITION.

There are schools of Self-Defense that claim to be the best at this and that. They lure you in with fancy ads and TV commercials and guarantee you a Black Belt. They take your hard earned money, and what are you getting for all this? ASSEMBLY LINE MARTIAL ARTS. They could care less if you learn properly or not.

Oh, you'll learn the basics, and lots of Katas (forms) (that are of absolutely no use in a combat situation) and you'll progress in rank, but its going to cost you. That's right. You PAY for your grading, you PAY for your tips, you PAY for your belts, you even PAY for your certificates. And as far as guaranteeing you a Black Belt, well... lets be realistic.

Sound familiar? It should because that's how many schools of Self Defense operate. And that, is NOT tradition.

For many years, the Staten Island Jiu Jitsu & Karate Dojo did not advertise. We remained a dojo available only to an elite selection of individuals, all of whom had to be referred to us by a current student. We teach in the TRADITIONAL Japanese manner. With emphasis on Discipline, Respect, Rigorous Training, and Positive Mental Attitude. You will learn techniques that will save your life, not a series of katas which may get you killed in combat.
