Welcome to an authentically Japanese martial arts experience on the Sunshine Coast!
WHAT IS THIS MARTIAL ART AT YOSHINKAN SUNSHINE COAST?
The primary martial art taught at the Yoshinkan Sunshine Coast Dojo has its roots in traditional Japanese Jiu Jutsu, a battle martial art dating back over 800 years. It is the official style practiced by the Tokyo Metropolitan and Riot Police in Japan. This style of martial art is dynamic and a very effective system of self defence. It is a non-competitive system focused around evasion, joint locks, body control, strikes, throwing and pinning techniques. It also includes training with and against weapons.
WHY DO THIS MARTIAL ART WITH US? IS IT FOR ME?
It can be said of Yoshinkan Sunshine Coast Dojo that it is truly for all ages, genders, walks of life and strength levels. Since the essence of its system relies on redirecting the attackers energies back upon them, a focus is placed on technique rather than brute strength.
The efficiency of this martial art is in mastery of another’s physical attack by training over time to use another’s force against them. A practitioner learns how to do this over time by working with their training partners in a non-competitive and mutually developmental setting. This relationship is unique to traditional Japanese martial arts.
The Sunshine Coast Dojo is a Japan Honbu (Headquarters) certified dojo and we are closely affiliated with the top instructors in the world practicing Yoshinkan Aikido today.
