  • Online Classes
    Full time members of Ryushinkan Dojo will have access to supplemental zoom sessions at no additional cost, either upon request or as scheduled. Students may ask questions and receive individualized training to address any technique or problem they may be having. We believe that the majority of learning happens in person and we hope that these online classes will contribute to that learning and growth.
  • Is Training Dangerous?
    Training must be done according to everyone's specific level. Kindness, respect, and a positive attitude while training are top priorities at our dojo. As a student, you always have the right say "no" to training with someone you don't feel comfortable training with, and you can always approach a teacher about anyone you feel is not adhering to the above values. Moreover, it is vital that you learn to become aware of your training space in order to avoid injuring yourself, others, or damaging the dojo equipment. This means knowing how much space your training/weapons will take up, and ensuring that this space is available and free on the mat. While safety is one of our top concerns, and adhering to the above values will make for the safest possible training experience, there is always a fair amount of risk of physical injury when training in a martial art. Please be sure to sign our legal waiver before attending classes, and take a look at our dojo etiquette.
