Japanese Jujutsu

If You Are Interested in Aikido, Hapkido, or Aikijujutsu near Annapolis, MD, come to Kogen Dojo!

Taikyoku Budo is Traditional Japanese Jujutsu with a Modern Attitude toward training.  That means that we respect and maintain traditions insofar as these traditions improve our effectiveness, but we test our tactical and technical assumptions in real time with real resistance.  Traditional martial arts have largely lost respect due to their inefficacy when tested against real resistance, whether that is on the street or in the Mixed Martial Arts arena.  One of the reasons for this is that these once effective traditions that used to test themselves regularly, either in the dojo, against other schools, or on the battlefield, lost their way when such testing was no longer needed.  These arts then became like museum pieces, maintaining forms and appearance over functionality.  Taikyoku Budo is Old School Jujutsu with a New School Ethos of testing and re-testing our assumptions against greater and greater levels of skill and resistance.  What value is a martial art that has no martial integrity or intent?  If you’re interested in Aikido in Severna Park, Hapkido in Severna Park, or Aikijujutsu in Severna Park, come try a class today.
