A local high visibility Martial arts school has recently and suddenly closed to the dismay of their loyal students.  As an active member of Menomonie for most of my life it saddens me to find out about this development in our community.  They have provided an important service to this area giving children and adults alike options in activity for those who are less interested in “conventional” sports.  I have seen several students impacted positively by participation in Martial Arts and their loss will be felt.

This being said Menomonie Goju is the longest standing dojo in Menomonie.  We have been active since 1984 when we began as SMAF at the Leisure service center.  Unfortunately we too experienced the abrupt loss of our instructor and were left floundering in the late 90s.  We have been under the current leadership since 2001 and in the same “new” location 1807 Wilson St NE Menomonie since 2003.  We are run by local resident professionals committed to the community of Menomonie and keeping options for children teens and adults who appreciate a traditional non-sport oriented martial arts experience.  This is not to say our option is for everyone and that is why the loss of this dojo is unfortunate.  If you are looking for additional martial Arts classes you are welcome to check us out on our website for the most information or Facebook Email
