Practical martial arts. Practical self-defence. Accessible for all ages. Welcome to an authentically Japanese martial arts experience on the Sunshine Coast!
WHAT IS YOSHINKAN?
Yoshinkan has its roots in traditional Japanese martial arts dating back over 800 years. It is the official style practiced by the Tokyo Metropolitan and Riot Police in Japan. This style of Aikido/Aiki-Jujutsu 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 YOSHINKAN WITH US? IS IT FOR ME?
It can be said of Yoshinkan that it is truly for all ages, genders, walks of life and strength levels. Since the essence of this system relies on redirecting the attackers energies back upon them, a focus is placed on technique rather than brute strength. The efficiency of Yoshinkan is in mastery of another’s physical attack by training over time to use another’s force against them. An Aikidoka (One who practices the art) 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 in Aikido/Aiki-Jujutsu.
The Sunshine Coast Dojo is a Japan Hombu (Headquarters) certified dojo and we are closely affiliated with the top instructors in the world practicing Yoshinkan today.
