It started at the dojo
In the mid 80’s, I must have been about 8 years old, I was a rather insecure boy. Bullying had been part of my life for some time now, which had put me into a place where my self esteem was at rock bottom. But deep inside I knew I had to learn to stand up for myself. At that time my mother encouraged me to pick up a sport, and very consciously I chosen karate.
I had a pretty good time in the dojo and my masters taught me a lot. More importantly though, this moment marked the first time I chose to explore ways to improve myself and invest in my personal growth. Was I successful? Let’s just say I’ve come a long way from the boy I was then and the work continues. Since that day I have explored many different ways to grow myself as a person and truly enjoy the process of getting to know more about myself and the world I experience. It’s this love for learning and exploring my life that became the foundation of Happiness Dojo.
When you search for the meaning of the word ‘Dojo’ you will find it’s often described as the ‘Place Of The Way’. It’s a reference to the place where martial art students practise and master their skills.
Happiness Dojo was founded as the place where you come to learn ways to create more meaning, freedom and happiness. It’s a place for people who are exploring life and are looking for ways to grow themselves personally and professionally into better human beings.
