Welcome to the Aishinkan
The Aishinkan is a traditional dojo where modern educational methods are used. It is our goal to help students who have chosen this path to realize the unity of body, mind, and spirit and contribute to making a better society through our practice. Budo practice can show us the way to understand freedom tempered with responsiblility. The inevitable conflicts in life can be dealt with from a calm, peaceful center that develops intuitive methods of resolving these conflicts without fighting. Everyday stress becomes chances for creative decisions and action. The true practice is the realization of freedom each instant through "Seiryoku Zenyo, Jita Kyoei." (Best Use Of Energy With Mutual Benefit- Kano Jigoro)
We practice budo as a "spirit forging" discipline with the ultimate destination of "Self-Realization." However, this discipline must also continue to be a practical and effective form of self-defense in both physical and emotional conflict. Our training gives us more options that enable us to make responsible decisions and actions to resolve these conflicts.
We have practice scheduled several days of the week. Visitors are welcome. Please write or call to introduce yourself and get more information about visiting our dojo and getting acquainted. Thanks...
