What is Ryu-shin-juku?
"Ryu" signifies the flow, while "Shin" represents the heart. "Juku" refers to a place of learning.
The name itself represents a place that nurtures a flexible heart, like the flow of water, capable of adapting to any situation, and at times, even breaking through obstacles.
Ryushinjuku is a dojo that offers instruction in Japanese martial arts, specifically Aikido and Iaido (Japanese swordsmanship).
At Ryushinjuku, through the practice of these martial arts, we pursue the growth of flexibility and strength of the mind and body, aiming to help practitioners overcome various challenges in daily life.
Who we are?
Ryushinjuku was established to uphold the legacy of the dojo known as City Aikido and Swordsmanship of Los Angeles.
We are affiliated with Aikikai (合気会), the original source of Aikido in Japan, founded by the master of budo, Morihei Ueshiba O-sensei and also a member dojo of United States Aikido Federation (USAF), the largest Aikido organization in the United States. USAF was founded by one of O-sensei's direct students and an Aikido legend, Yoshimitsu Yamada Shihan.
