Welcome Friends!

The Martial Way Nihon Goshin Aikijujutsu, is a different kind of Martial Arts School! We are a modern school and take a modern approach to the martial arts and martial arts training.

We provide a relaxed environment for both children and adults, and believe learning is possible without the militaristic “boot camp” environment found in many schools. We don’t go to competitions; we don’t give out trophies; we don’t have a drill Sargent, and we don’t fight.

If you want to fight, there are plenty of schools out there that will train you to be brutal. Please go there.

Our goal is to teach students to resolve physical conflict without inflicting unnecessary harm on their attacker. To that end, we practice Aikijujutsu.

Aiki is a tricky term meaning Harmony with Spirit or Harmony with Nature -- meaning the spirit or nature of an attack or other physical movement. For all practical purposes, aiki is about balance and motion.

Jujutsu, sometimes written jujitsu, literally means soft techniques. So Aikijujutsu primarily uses soft techniques (other than punches and kicks) to neutralize an attack.

So if you don’t fight, what do you do?

We train. We help each other learn. We study balance. We study motion and strength. We study the movements of attack and defense. We study ancient techniques and how to use them in the modern world. But, most of all, we have fun.

We welcome anyone who would like to train and allow prospective students to attend two free classes before signing up. Now you know who we are, if you want to keep reading, just surf around the site some more, or come in for a couple of classes!
