style), This style consists of:
The unarmed martial art of the Samurai and base style for
all Japanese fighting systems.
The advanced form of Jujutsu dealing with the higher
principles of multiple attack defense.
The art of the sword for balance, courage, and control
Zen meditation for the cultivation of the mind.

We only accept
adults as students,18 years of age or older. We rarely
have anyone training under the age of 21.
What is the purpose of Zen meditation training
in the martial arts?
Without an internal discipline such as Zen, the martial
arts is nothing more than dancing in your pajamas. You
will freeze in fear and no matter how much martial art
training you have had, you will not be able to truly
defend yourself properly in a life and death situation.
Zen allows the
defender to keep calm at the moment of danger in
order for the techniques learned to "come out" so to
art teaches the student the self defense technique,
but Zen meditation enables the student the ability
to use it when it counts.
