The Shinwakan Dojo offers classes in several traditional Japanese martial arts (budo). These include:
Aiki-Jujutsu Gyakute-Do is a style of traditional Japanese self-protection that includes the study of release techniques (Nuki Waza), arrest and restraint techniques (Renko Waza), throwing techniques (Nage Waza), and pinning techniques (Fudo Waza). It also includes the study of sophisticated physical and psychological methods of controlling an opponent with "mental intent" called Aikijutsu, as well as a systematic curriculum of blocking, striking and kicking arts called Daken-Ho.

Our school is affiliated with the Kanou-Kan organization in Hiroshima, Japan. The Kanou-Kan was founded by Kunio Morimoto Sensei and offers instruction in the classical samurai arts of Muso Shinden Eishin-Ryu Batto Heiho (Iaido), Oishi Shinkage-Ryu Kenjutsu, and Shibukawa Ichi-Ryu Jujutsu.
In addition to our primary classes, we also host occasional seminars in a variety of traditional martial arts.
