    Club Information

    The Aikibudokan has offered instruction in the martial arts since 1998 and is one of the most respected dojo in Houston due to the background and experience of the instructors and the diverse range of classical martial arts offered. The instructional staff is one of the largest and most experienced in the area. The Kancho (Chief Instructor & Training Hall President) has over 40 years of experience in the martial arts and is 8th Degree Black Belt in Aikido, 6th Degree Black Belt in Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo and 1st Degree Black Belt in Kodokan Judo. He is assisted by the Dojo Cho (Dojo Manager) who holds a 7th Degree Black Belt in Aikido and 4th Degree Black Belt in Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo. Other senior instructors include 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Degree Black Belts in Aikido and various weapons arts. The instruction offered at the Aikibudokan is taught from the classical perspective and does not include a sports or competive component. We consider the concept of koryu ("old tradition or old flow") as being more important than competition, trophies or the trend of teaching to the popular "fad of the moment". We believe that the traditional approach results in a more rounded, better qualified, and more confident martial artist. This koryu philosophy is unique and difficult to find in over-commercialized martial arts studios. It would immediately be recognized by the Samurai or Zen Warrior Monks of ages past as the means by which the best of the past is preserved for future generations, and by which today's "modern samurai" learns self-defense and develops a life philosophy by which he or she can cope with the demands oftoday's fast paced world while learning an art form that enables one to improve their body, mind and spirit.
