Expert Karate Academy is operated by James Dozier Dozia, Honorary 6th Degree Black Belt, who has trained and researched twenty years in the applied science of the ancient art of Japan Karate. Karate has two parts: mental and physical. Expert Karate focuses mainly on the mental, to think before one strike. Self-Discipline, control and confidence are three major keys. A person, child or adult, can change incorrect behavior through the applied science of Karate. Karate is an achievement that leaves the person with a good sense of accomplishment. In past years Karate was taught aggressively, to solve conflict with violence. Today Karate is a method of self-discipline and control that instructs a person to think and to reason. I believe that when a person reduces him or herself to striking, they have already lost. There is nothing left but humility. This program works. I know, it changed my life and my achievements.
Martial arts at Rocky Mount’s Dozier James Karate Expert is a great workout that will leave you feeling Zen. During this MMA class, you can learn how to think on your feet and react in a smart and precise way. Challenge yourself to a class and reap the many health and wellness benefits.
Dozier James Karate Expert’s patrons can find places to park in the area. Work your body into fighting shape as you train in martial arts at Dozier James Karate Expert in Rocky Mount.

Mr. Dozier is an EXCELLENT instructor! He teaches my whole family. I learn something about communicating more effectively with my children each time I watch their class. He is not only worried about your body today; exercises are structured to take care of your body years down the road. I HIGHLY appreciate and recommend Mr.Dozier!

“Mr. D.” is a great teacher. Karate is a journey which trains your mind and body. I know of no one better to lead you on that journey then Dr. Dozier. He is great with kids and adults. We have two black belts in my family he trained and we are working on #3.
