The Tanemaki Dojo exists to follow the teachings of Dr. Maasaki Hatsumi, Soke, from Noda City, Japan. Our goals include having an active part in a positive martial arts community. Our focus is on the traditional Japanese unarmed and armed martial arts of self defense known as Budo Taijutsu. The martial arts are used as a tool for self-improvement in all realms. We train in both modern and traditional combat arts.
Our dojo is noncommercial and noncompetitive. There are no contracts to sign.
