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.
