During the day of Friday April 6th, two men using fake police badges invaded a home in Lake Oswego while there were people inside. This could happen to your family too!

1 out 5 home experience some from of burglary or attempted break in. Bad things sometimes happen to good people. The number of home invasions has greatly increased over the last few years.

On Saturday November 17th we will be offering our 4 hour Home Invasion Seminar. The seminar is from noon to 4pm so you can still sleep in and you can still plan an evening out.

Gun owners. Is your plan to shoot first and ask questions later? Your gun is only effective if it's in your hand, loaded, a round chambered, safety off and pointed at the threat. Do you have the will to pull the trigger? Do you know how to clear a room and use choke points?

We want our students to have fun, and have the opportunity to share their knowledge and excitement for TTJ. Our school is so much more than a place where people learn to punch and kick. A large part of what we do is developing self confidence and leadership skills, and hopefully some long-lasting friendships! We would like to invite kids, teens and adults to try a FREE class or come in and take a tour of our school.

Why are we celebrating Back to School?

We are celebrating our students' opportunity to learn and grow. Many children around the world do not have access to education. The United States once had generations of uneducated people with limited prospects for their futures because of a lack of education. We encourage our students to embrace education and to challenge themselves to be the best student they can possibly be.
