Head Instructors

Shihan’s Tony & Tina Palos

After taking a class in Isshinryu Karate taught by a college friend at a local Rec Center in Corpus Christi in 1985, Tony & Tina moved to Denton to attend UNT and major in Jazz Studies. They started training again in 1998 with Hanshi Robert Kristensen in Coppell with the goal of earning black belts and getting in shape. In 2002, Tony started Denton Dojo as part of testing for Black Belt. After starting with one class of six students, Denton Dojo now offers classes six days a week for students age 4 years to 60 plus. There are also Adaptive Karate classes for students with special needs. Still active as jazz musicians in the DFW area, they find karate balances their life in many ways. They enjoy passing on the benefits of traditional martial arts to students of all ages and teaching them skills to succeed at home, in school, and in the workplace.
