A true Japanese Dojo
Welcome to Daitoryu-Muden US!
Daitoryu-Muden US is the only licensed Dojo (Martial Arts school) in the USA authorized by Shihan Hiroo Iida of Hokkaido Japan to teach the art. Our US headquarters is located in Butler, New Jersey and we have recently established a Study Group in Cary, North Carolina.
When searching for Daito Ryu Aiki Jujutsu schools it is important to understand the Japanese traditions and ensure that these are incorporated in the teachings.
Our purpose in training is to build strong martial artists through the development of a specific force known as “Aiki.” This force does not rely on strength, as relying solely on strength can become a weakness. Through the basic teachings of Daitoryu we will assist you in the development and understanding of Aiki.
This art can be done by anyone, man or woman, regardless of size or strength. An additional benefit to the art is the cultivation of good health, vitality, and the ability to defend yourself within our society.
