The traditional spirit at Itten Dojo

Many of the Japanese martial arts you encounter in this country have been commercialized to the point where their deeper values and benefits are lost in the shuffle of capturing and retaining more and more students. Facilities dedicated to the serious study of the Japanese martial arts are rare indeed! Itten Dojo is one of these few. The spirit of the dojo shines through, in its correct appointments—spare, clean, elegant—and safe, ordered training space. This is an environment suitable for the “spiritual forging” that the best practice of the Japanese martial arts entails.

Decades, not months or years

Maybe you should find out why senior members measure their training here in decades, rather than mere months or years.
