Level Three Youth students Olivia and Paul show some ninja friendship!

Here’s why so many parents choose Dayton Quest Center as their partner in exceptional child raising…

We use To-Shin Do martial arts to teach children how to be powerful and aware so they can live a safe and happy and fulfilling life.

Imagine your child…

…growing into a person with self-directed focus at home and school

…growing into a person with more respect for self and others

…happy to feel accomplished in an important and valuable skill

…knowing how to discern danger and get to safety if needed

Your child excelling at life and becoming a person of presence

— that’s our mission at the Dayton Quest Center.

We teach your child the lessons dearest to your heart as a parent.

We use To-Shin Do martial arts training to teach how to grow up with honest confidence, knowing the value of teamwork, how to reach for a challenging goal, encouraging others, and all about focus, dignity, life-long love of healthy fitness, and the strength that comes with being cheerfully tough and resilient. We know you want all that for your child.

To-Shin Do martial arts adventure-based leadership training teaches how to stand up for what is right, how to take care of others in challenging moments, how to look your best — best fitness, best posture, best health — so you stand out in a crowd as a person who matters!

We offer a sure path to youth empowerment and leadership

With each seemingly routine but truly magical class, your child practices the art of winning – paying attention, building strength, achieving goals, associating with people who seek centeredness, expanding ability to take care of others, and nurturing a sense of community and connectedness.

Martial Arts are a great way to help your child grow up proud and capable!

Children today need to feel more secure in the world. But they also need to learn they are ultimately responsible for creating that security for themselves. To learn this big life lesson, they must learn to keep going through things that would hold them back. In a systematic, safe and fun way, SKH Quest To-Shin Do will help your child explore and stretch all the physical, mental and winning spirit boundaries.

To-Shin Do martial arts training is all about perseverance – intelligence and commitment combined. We transform young lives by teaching children to avoid negative forces while developing their strengths – creating leaders and peacemakers dedicated to using their training to benefit the community.

Leader, follower, or loner – which one do you want your child to become?

SKH Quest martial arts training provides the opportunity and the skills to overcome any obstacle on the path to success by teaching:

  • Leadership – How to take charge so that everyone can win
  • Focus – Eyes and mind unfailingly on the right target
  • Perseverance – Sticking with a noble but challenging goal
  • Confidence – Positive ways to win no matter what life brings
  • Compassion – The truly powerful extend care for all
  • Respect – The importance of treating others with dignity
  • Conflict Resolution – How to make and keep peace
  • Fitness – Life-long love of healthy vibrant living
  • Teamwork – Bringing out the best in everyone

True self esteem is earned through struggle, not awarded as a present

Kids think we are cool in our black belts, but parents know we are their best allies in helping them raise and empower their children.

“I almost never listened to my father’s advice, but I always listened to my martial arts teacher. It’s ironic to recognize they were both teaching me the same important things.”

– Tom Wilson, 27 years of martial arts training

Life is all too short and our children grow up so fast. We have limited time to expose them to the ideas, the people, and the experiences that will arm them with the tools they need – not only for material success – but for deep and authentic happiness.

“I will never forget the day my daughter first stepped on the mat. That day stands out for both of us as one of the most important of her life.”

– Kathy Arnold, mom of high school To-Shin Do Black Belt daughter

Better health, higher fitness, more mental and emotional clarity, a lot of new friendships, and many adventure experiences await your child.

We invite you to use our To-Shin Do classes to help raise your child to become a self-actualized adult you will be proud to see walking purposefully in the world.
