Serving the Community Since 1985
Enso is an ancient, international symbol of inner strength, harmony, community, and peace. It symbolizes a commitment to personal growth through body and mind balance, discipline, and practice. Enso comes from the Japanese language and literally means an "open" circle.
Enso Center is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) with a mission to promote awareness, understanding, and harmony, internally, interpersonally, culturally, ecologically, and ideologically.
Enso Center encourages the growth of strong sustainable communities through the study of martial arts, nature, languages, literacy, communication and fine arts.
In our 20+ years of serving our community, we have given thousands of dollars in free membership to students in need, planted over 500 trees, donated use of our facility to community events, provided free self-defense seminars to youth organizations, donated funds to other non-profits and much, much more.
If you have a similar vision and would like to partner with us, please contact us. We’re happy to help our community
