The personnel of Do No Kai Martial Arts Temple changes constantly. Students often stay for years, studying one or more of the various martial arts styles offered. After achieving their martial arts goals, Do No Kai students tend to come and go, often returning "home" again to study and to share.

The comprehensive martial arts styles taught at Do No Kai Temple are: Kobu Jitsu (the art of weaponry), Ju Jitsu (the Japanese "Gentle Art," from which both Aikido and Judo were founded), Wing Chun Kung Fu (a close in Chinese boxing system), Tai Chi Chuan (also known jointly as "martial meditation in motion" and "The Grand Ultimate Fist") and Pa Qua Chuan, the sister to Tai Chi Chuan. Do No Kai Temple offers instruction in all five styles. All classes are taught in English and/or Spanish.
