Lincoln Martial Arts Center, formerly Roseberry's Sho-Rei-Shobu-Kan Martial Arts Center opened its doors in 1972, and since that time, has established itself as one of the finest martial arts schools in the area. The dojo facility is over 7,000 square feet and includes an Olympic Judo mat (for Judo, Aikido, Jiu-Jitsu, Daitoryu and Yoga) and a large wooden floor (for Karate, Kobudo and T'ai Chi). Besides learning the physical techniques of Judo, Karate, Aikido, T'ai Chi, and Yoga, students learn such mental attitudes as patience, self-assurance, respect, and self-discipline. Students discover that they are encouraged to grow spiritually as well as physically.
Upon enrolling in a course of instruction, beginning students soon realize that they have many teachers. All of the students ahead of them are responsible for their instruction and well-being. Beginning students are treated kindly and respectfully. In return students are expected to practice diligently and to be respectful to other students and teachers. Indeed, mutual respect is one of the basics of martial arts training. Students are never asked to do anything beyond their capability but are encouraged to put forth their best effort. "Do Your Best!" is a familiar phrase heard in Sho-Rei-Shobu-Kan practice sessions. The motto of the Sho-Rei-Shobu-Kan School is "respect and manners." All students of Sho-Rei-Shobu-Kan enjoy an atmosphere conducive to good training and personal growth.
In 2013 Roseberry Shihan moved the hombu dojo to its current location in Chester, VA., and is a family-oriented school.
