Dawn Porter-Schofield

Dawn's Passion for the Martial Arts dates back 23+ years.

A black belt in Kempo Karate in 1997, after 4 years of training, she taught until 2000, at which time she moved away from Kempo on to other challanges like her Mediation Business that was started in 2002. She used a lot of what she had learned of discpline, strength and control in her business and still has that business today 16 years later. Looking to re-focus her path she had looked at several other styles and dojo's until she found the Da Po Dojo in Mississauga in 2011 where she studied under her Sensei; Jason Bassels, 5th degree Black Belt Gojo Ryu . Under Sensei Bassels she has obtained the rank of Shodan in Gojo Ryu, Shodan in Kobuto, and soon 1st level in Ti Chi.
