Shindai Dojo has always functioned as a Budokan. The vision of the dojo founder, Dennis Hooker Sensei, was to provide facility support and encouragement for other traditional Japanese martial arts in the belief that the common principles of Budo would benefit all. A Budokan is a training facility that houses a number of arts sharing a similar culture origin or perspective. Over the years the paradigm has proven one of great worth. We enjoy the company of outstanding partners and worthy martial disciplines.
We do not share organizational affiliation with any of these other groups. We do not share financial arrangement. We do share heart. We also endorse their practice and recommend them to individuals who may be interested in their disciplines.
