Aiki Ten Shin Sho Kai has been teaching in Brisbane and Bristol since 1988.
It is a traditional Japanese martial arts school based on the principle of Aiki or blending with energy.
Both open hand and weapons forms are taught.
The primary purpose of the School is to provide a vehicle for self transformation; a new way of ‘seeing’ through the practice of a martial discipline.
It is not a sport nor a competitive art, so whilst it is extremely effective as a self defence, if you are after a quick and easy way to learn to ‘fight’, then this is not the School for you.
If, instead, you are looking for a more comprehensive approach, then Aiki Ten Shin Sho Kai offers a practical life philosophy as expressed through Japanese Budo.
