Welcome to The Karate Dojo and American Top Team MMA
We pride ourselves on the fact that our dojo promotes a family environment where all students/families become part of our extended family. The Karate Dojo & American Top Team MMA of Jackson, NJ goes one step beyond. We promote a positive social environment, help to create long lasting friendships, encourage participation and leadership in our community, constantly participate in charities, as well as promote an environment of success and achievement.
Creating well-rounded and complete marital artists in a fun and safe environment is very important to us. Our system presents a fusion of martial arts from the ground up. Students will attend weekly classes on striking, takedowns, submission grappling, weapons training, weapons defense, joint locks, sparring and much more. Programs are available for the entire family from ages 3 through teen and adult. Fitness programs such as Cardio Kickboxing and Cage Fitness help to provide the extra conditioning needed to produce a high quality and complete martial arts athlete.
“I just wanted to let you know that having the kids in your Dojo has been very rewarding for them and us. They have changed so much and keep on getting better!!! This experience is just amazing! Watching them in class and at home is such a reward, Thank you Master Alders!!!”
- Maggie Rodriguez
"After the past 2 months we have watched our son and the others in his class develop confidence and increased skills along with an increased desire to learn. Master Alders is not only a kind and patient teacher but he is also a strong role model in what is expected and what will be accepted. The kids know that Master Alders means business, but he can also laugh and be silly with them. The Karate Dojo has been nothing but a positive experience for our little boy!”
- Dawn Miller
"I have seen many studios and health clubs, but never one that is quite like "The Karate Dojo". Very professional, caring, understanding, family oriented where the Master himself works out side by side with his students. I am an adult student in the Cardio Kickboxing Program, who was extremely nervous about joining The Karate Dojo. Master Eric Alders is very unique. He made me feel very comfortable, relaxed, and worked with me to correct my technique. I absolutely enjoy Cardio Kickboxing. My stress level has gone down, I have lost inches, I have more energy, and I feel great. Thank You The Karate Dojo!”
