History of Our Schools...

At our Dojo's, we teach a various styles of traditional and modern Japanese martial arts. NYC Budo is a semi-private dojo in that we are open to the public, but like to maintain a smaller group of students in order to focus on the student's development during their studies here with us.  

Masakatsukan
Dojo
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 both technically and spiritually. Masakatsukan was founded in 2008 and is a school of authentic "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 Dojo
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.Enshinkan is a AEUSKF member.
