Aiki-Jutsu is an ancient Japanese art of self-defense dating back to the 11th century Japan.

The Name literally means the way and techniques of harmony and spirit power. Ai (Harmony) refers to being at peace with nature and oneself in every life situation.. and Ki (Spirit) refers to that mystical life force that permeates all aspects of the universe and flows through the body and the mind.....

The combat tradition of Aiki-Jutsu has evolved through centuries in feudal Japan to deal with realistic armed and unarmed combat situations. As the nature of warfare changes through time so must each martial system recognize these changes and adapt accordingly to remain effective and relevant.

Here at Aiki-Jutsu Budokan our philosophy is to honor and continue the ancient traditions and principles of the Art, as well as focusing our training on real every day armed and unarmed combat situations.
