Located in the heart of downtown Highland Park, the Highland Park Dojo is the sixth Fonseca Martial Arts location. We are excited to share martial arts with the Highland Park Community.


To celebrate the grand opening of our newest dojo, we’ve planned a weekend full of free classes and workshops, membership giveaways, and deals for our members and the Highland Park community.

Throughout the weekend we’ll be raffling off free memberships to new students who try a class. We’ll also be raffling off cool gear to our current members who participate in the activities. Each class equals one entry into the raffle.

Registration for these classes is encouraged but walk-ins will be accepted all weekend long.

We’re excited to welcome our current members and see some new faces this April!
