Iron Dog Gym began in Eureka, California in the late 1990’s under the stewardship of Instructor Jeffrey John Cox. Being a working group leader in the AWTO, he realized that his school was not just his business, but also was his students. It is not just a teacher telling students what to do, but also a teacher learning from the students and students becoming teachers themselves. With this concept, Iron Dog Gym was born, and Jeffrey Cox is the first Iron Dog.

The growth of every single member is the goal of Iron Dog Gym. Every student is growing at their own pace, every teacher is always still a student. A martial art can not grow and survive the decades if new teachers are not raised to continue it. A teacher can not grow if they do not seek guidance even from their own pupils. Iron is hammered into steel with heat and carbon, and steel is folded into a blade. For Iron Dog Gym, these folded layers are symbolic of the student and teacher layers in a working school.

Jeffrey John Cox is the original Iron Dog scholar, but the tradition continues beyond him. This website is his effort to expand this concept. Jeff has a Bachlors of Science in Botany, a cleared Multiple Subject California Teachers credential, a Second Tech in EBMAS Wing Tzun, First Tech in EBMAS Latosa Escrima Concepts, has had a NASM CPT in the past, and is currently preparing for a NASM PES and an RKC I. His son has recently started Judo so Jeffrey too is starting from the beginning in this art, on the mat with a white belt in the beginners class. An Iron Dog never stops starting fresh and new, always Springtime……
