"Show up, shut up, suck it up" -Pat Byron 2010
The Rammed Earth Dojo is Pat Byron's private dojo. The name 'Rammed Earth' relates to the rammed earth walls at the front of the dojo. Engraved into the rammed earth walls are the logos for Puckett's Noble House of Karate, The Ryukyu Kobudo Tesshinkan and of course the Salt Spring Island Karate Club. The dojo was built in 2009. Since then many instructors have taught there, you can find their photos up along the mirror wall. The dojo has sold and is no longer in use. It will be remembered as the premiere destination on Salt Spring for martial arts.
