Are traditional Japanese martial arts for you?
There is only one way to find out; do as much research as you can and contact us if your are serious about training. As stated earlier, traditional martial arts study is not for everyone. These arts are viewed as a lifetime pursuit and it may take time to find the right dojo, art, or even instructor (sensei).
The best advice is to visit a dojo and carefully observe the instructor and students, then decide for yourself if the training is right for you. One thing is certain, all students come to the dojo for varying reasons. Some come for the historical connection to ancient Japan and the samurai heritage. Others come for reasons of self-improvement through dedicated training. Still others come to learn self-defense skills. All are legitimate reasons to undertake study in our dojo.Please contact us for further information, or to ask specific questions about our school.
