At Fairfieldista, we love strong women who can kick some proverbial butt! So we’re super excited to bring you today’s story about Karina Gramesty and Kailen Pirro of Dojo Fairfield! Last August, Karina and Kailen acquired Dojo Fairfield (formerly Stryker Martial Arts) and began infusing it with their own brand of martial arts training and the program is exploding – especially with women, in fact, women make up 80% of their adult program! Their inclusive, “no intimidation” environment allows kids to develop leadership and self-discipline, and the adult program focuses on fitness, offering the only Cage Fitness program in Fairfield, and self-defense. Interested in learning about Dojo Fairfield and their unique blend of fitness and fun? Read our interview with co-owner Kailen Pirro!
Fairfieldista: How did you get into martial arts?
Fairfieldista: What else do you want readers to know about Dojo Fairfield?
Kailen: Although Martial Arts training and Cage Fitness may not be the first activity you think of engaging in, we strongly encourage you to stop in to our dojo and try out a class! We have an amazing group of students – both adult and youth – who are ready to welcome you.
We’ve found that the hardest part of training is often making the decision to begin. If you can do that, and walk through the front door, we promise to take care of the rest!
