Wat we doen

Welcome to the Shinbukan Dojo!

The Shinbukan Dojo Amsterdam offers classes in the samurai arts shinkendo (swordsmanship), aikido (unarmed self-defence) and bojutsu (long staff). Students can choose to train in one or both the arts, based on traditional and practical techniques that you can directly integrate in and apply to all areas of your life.

The school is a community where members:

• Develop martial arts techniques and strategies

• Learn self-defense

• Improve calmness, confidence and awareness

• Train for a strong, supple and healthy body

• Learn about Japanese culture and philosophy

• Enjoy training with a group of like-minded people

Shinkendo and Aikibuken are based in traditional and practical technique and while the techniques taught in the classroom can be directly applied to situations of self-defence or self-protection, learning the direct application of techniques is only one aspect of the training. Training in Budo and Bujutsu is a path to self-discovery and self-awareness; a path on which practitioners take part in an applied and very personal experiential examination of conflict that is both objective and subjective.
