Our Mission at Daitoryu-Muden US is to teach more than just self-defense classes. The goal of Budo (Japanese Martial Arts Classes) should be more than just obtaining a black belt; Martial Arts is a way of life and at Daitoryu-Muden US you will be introduced to true Budo.
A Shihan (expert martial arts instructor) once said to me “there are more martial arts masters in northern New Jersey, than in all of Japan. How can this be?” It is important to understand that the Japanese have been practicing Budo for over 2000 years and true Budo can only be obtained through years of dedication to the art.
Many Dojo’s (martial arts schools) fail to teach the values or philosophy which are at the core of martial arts. A true Japanese Dojo will incorporate the teachings and history of the art while promoting good health as we build strong martial artists able to defend themselves against today’s violent streets.
A true Japanese Dojo
At Daitoryu-Muden US we pledge to teach the art as it is taught in Japan by Shihan Hiroo Iida.
