STANDARD PROGRAM

YOUTH & ADULT

In this program students are instructed in a positive, non-competitive, inclusive environment where they can explore self-defense principles, strategies, and tactics for handling modern day threats and confrontations. Our goal is to allow students the opportunity to cultivate discipline, confidence and mental fortitude through the study of martial arts.

Testimonials

I walked into the Dayton Quest Center searching for a self-defense discipline for my two kids and was warmly welcomed by Sensei Stevens, Sensei Anders, as well as now-fellow students and friends. Sensei Stevens’ energy, enthusiasm, and authentic passion for every student’s success was immediately apparent, and his masterful insights continue to challenge us. He and Sensei Anders both have a talent for connecting with youth and adults alike, building confidence, discipline, and skill to unlock everyone’s unique potential. From a self-defense perspective, I’ve personally found the underlying principles of this martial art to be unparalleled among the numerous arts I’ve practiced. Rest assured you will reap value from day one on your own personal quest.

My family cannot say enough great words about Dayton Quest Martial Arts!  Since our daughter joined in the fall of 2023, she has loved every minute of her experience.  Our daughter is in the Mighty Ninjas group and has class twice a week.  The Student Creed that the students learn, which involves words such as confident, accomplish, believe in myself, disciplined and ready to learn and advance is a testament that this is more than just a martial arts class, it is a life skills class as well.  Dayton Quest is a very clean and welcoming environment for both students and families and Sensei Stevens as well as Sensei Anders provide a very educational and fun environment for all students.  Our daughter loves coming to class to earn her stripes and is excited for her next steps as a Ninja!  At the end of each class, they always end with “Ninjas Rock!” In this Dad’s opinion, Dayton Quest Rocks!

This has been the best collaboration in our 40 years of operation!

Our family's experiences with Quest have been uniformly outstanding! All the instructors are great, all the other families welcoming. I seriously can't gush enough. We have two kids in their program, and plans to enroll the third when she's old enough. :-)

Justin Birt

Emma- age 10- has been with the Quest Center for over three years, and the mindfulness, focus, attention to detail, kindness, and friendships she gained through the practice of To Shin Do has helped her live her best life- she is confident, mindful, empathetic, and can protect herself if needed. This is the absolute best choice we made as parents!
