Long Island and NYC's School of Traditional Japanese Jujutsu, Classical Japanese Iaido and Kenjutsu

Welcome to the home page of Masakatsukan and Enshinkan Budo Dojo.  At our Dojo's, we teach a various styles of traditional and modern Japanese martial arts.  The name Masakatsukan was adopted by saying's of Yamaoaka Tesshu, the founder of Itto Shoden Muto Ryu Kenjutsu and Morihei Ueshiba and is defined as "The Training Hall of True Victory".  "True Victory" has deep significance in Japanese bujutsu and leads to the ultimate achievement in budo...overcoming the self.

Masakatsukan Dojo was founded in 2008 and is a school of true "Budo" or martial ways. We strive to maintain a traditional yet progressive atmosphere where the budo arts of Japan are practiced.  We are members and shibu of the Sekai Dentokan Bugei Renmei, the All U.S. Kendo Federation, Kokusai Nippon Budo Kai/Jikishinkai and the Zen Nihon Sogo Budo Renmei based in Kyoto.

Enshinkan or “school of the true circle” derives its meaning from the Japanese kanji “shin” and “enso”, the prior representing the highest virtue Truth, while the latter has its origins in Zen philosophy. Enso, “the circle” is a richly profound image symbolizing a limited individual’s journey towards limitless Perfection. As the Japanese warriors of the past believed the path of the sword is a path to a Perfection, Enshinkan has adopted this image as the heart of their training, believing - from the beginning of life there is Perfection; in the middle is the quest for Perfection; and the end, again, culminates in Perfection.

Established in 2013 by members of the former Shumeikan Dojo on Long Island, the core collective of Enshinkan are the senior fencing students of Moses Becerra Sensei,  chief instructor of Tokubukan Dojo in Southern Florida.  Enshinkan strives to offer traditional Kendo that is honest, tenacious and elegant.

We are a semi-private dojo in which we are open to the public, but try to maintain a smaller group of dedicated students compared to other commercial schools.  In doing so, we maintain the traditional teacher to student method of teaching which develops high caliber students.  Those seeking to join should set up an appointment to see if our school is right for them.
