Practice Moving Zen – Experience Traditional Japanese Martial Arts

Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo

Shindo Muso Ryu is the art of the short staff. In this art, we use a simple short staff against a sword-armed opponent.

In Jodo we rely on precision and the flexibility of the Jo to overcome the inherent advantages of a blade wielding opponent.

Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu

Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu is the original “Aiki” art, an art of traditional Japanese jujutsu.

This art includes sophisticated throws, joint locks and strikes, offering a rich reserve of technical knowledge.
