Welcome to Itten Dojo!
Discover more, in our traditional, member-focused dojo. Our mission is personal transformation through challenging training in practical skills. Skills proven effective in use, time and again, by law enforcement, first responders, military — and everyday men and women like you! As a member of Itten Dojo, you will build strong relationships in a community of achievement, forge a disciplined and positive mindset, and enhance your physical health and capabilities by training in Japanese martial arts such as Yamate-ryu Aikijutsu, Itto Tenshin-ryu Kenjutsu, or Ono-ha Itto-ryu Kenjutsu (Sokaku-den). You will learn to move through the world — and life — with greater power, confidence, and grace. Call or email today for an appointment to observe training. Visitors are always welcome!
The positive, challenging, and uplifting environment at Itten Dojo offers community, opportunity for accomplishment, and a proven path to greater capabilities...not to mention an incredible amount of fun. Visit our Facebook page and YouTube channel for photos and videos of the dojo and training.
