Jissenkan Aikibudo is a practical system of personal combat as well as mental and physical conditioning for adults, 18 years and older. What We Do Aikido - the art and science of "blending" with an attack in order to control and/or subdue an enemy. Our techniques come from a variety of ancient Japanese fighting arts including kenjutsu (sword techniques), atemi-jutsu (striking techniques) and Japanese Jujutsu.
While our training adheres closely to original aikido principles and philosophy, we feel it is necessary to explore all facets of close-quarter combat training, hence we are a school of Aikibudo. Why We Are Different The Japanese term jissen means, "actual combat" or "daily life application." The arts we teach are effective forms of personal combat that utilize realistic scenarios. We are not a commercial school. All prospective students must watch at least one class and have an interview with the head instructor. Jissenkan Aikibudo training is not for everybody. Our training is hard and potentially dangerous. We welcome anyone who is willing to work hard and attend class a minimum of two days a week in order to train with us. For more information, please see our INFO page.
How We Do It We use a system of training that focuses on body conditioning and simple defense techniques first that become progressively complex and comprehensive as a student continues to grow. Ours is a combat-oriented system; in other words, we do not train for sport or fitness but training on a regular basis will vastly improve your physical condition. We use "old school" as well as modern training methods, all of which can be backed up with science and reality.
Our dojo is located at the instructor's residence in Milford, Ohio. Please e-mail us at jissenkanaikibudo@gmail for more information.
