Kickboxing classes are high energy, fun and the time flies by! Instructors are very motivated and the entire class is fueled by positive energy and encouragement. If you're considering it, give it a try! You won't regret you did.

This place is spectacular! So many good things about this Martial Arts Dojo! The staff is friendly and welcoming. They treat you like your one of the family, from the moment you walk in the door. All of the instructors are helpful and knowledgeable. Even the students that train are welcoming! They have one of the most flexible schedules around. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! You have to come check this place out!

I've been attending Budo Shingikan Dojo for a little over 2 months now and I absolutely love it! Its my home away from home, my happy place! All of the members make you feel so welcomed and help you so much to make sure you fully understand each thing we are working on. Before starting this program I was very hyper-active and didn't necessarily know how to control my anxiety, with the help of all the members here I am able to focus a lot more, and keep my emotions completely level. I still have a lot to learn and I cannot wait to continue a wonderful journey with these amazing people!

This Martial Arts Dojo rocks! I love Kaiso D'Antonoli and all the other students. Budo Shingikan is a great place to learn Martial Arts, and a community of awesome people (of all ages and backgrounds). Thanks to Budo Shingikan, both my body and mind are incredibly stronger. What I learn at the Dojo has positive impacts in every aspect of my life. Kaiso D'Antonoli is an amazing instructor who knows how to nurture the most skilled martial artist and absolute beginners who never threw a punch or a kick in their entire life. He is able to help transform his students into a balanced confident human being who not only know how to defend themselves and others, but brings balance in their lives. And the learning never stops as you go up in rank. You just keep peeling away the layers. Honestly, you have to try it for yourself!

My biggest issue right now is trying to figure out which classes to attend. I just don’t want to miss anything.

I am very excited to continue training and to grow my skills under the tutelage of Kaiso D'Antonoli.

For anyone who feels lost, for anyone who wants to feel safer walking down the street, or for anyone who is looking to challenge themselves, or get back into shape, I can't recommend Budo Shingikan more.

The staff and instructors are wonderful. They help the kids when they struggle and provide a support base for them to grow up in an environment with lots of confidence. Ours sons favorite instructor is Mr Nick. When he teaches you can really see he loves what he does and the kids respond right back. The staff treat you like family and if you have any issues they are right there to help you out. This by far is the best martial arts school experience we have had.

Our son has been with this dojo for almost 4 years. He has learned so much, not just martial arts. He has learned respect, honor, never giving up, teamwork, as well as avoiding dangerous situations and resolving issues through communication. He has a couple of diagnosed behavior issues and participating in this program has definitely helped these issues. This is a family atmosphere and instructors as well as owners are always there to help and support.

I've been practicing here for 7 months and I love it! What I love most about this place is that it's not all about kicking ass and/or winning. They teach us to listen to our bodies and always be aware of yourself and those around you. They teach us teachings that help us focus and stay flexible during training but also the same teachings can be used throughout our daily lives. It's about becoming a better version of yourself through working on yourself in the dojo and out. Excellent place, excellent people and excellent style of martial arts! I recommend this to anyone and everyone who wishes to advance their lives to a better place.

Really enjoy the instructors. They make it fun for the kids even when they are working out. Been here roughly 6 weeks, kids enjoy it very much. The staff helps out and don't hesitate to ask questions and make sure you know what is going on things go pretty quick when you first start.

This is hands down the best investment I have made into bettering myself! After having been enrolled here for almost a year, I have made many lifestyle changes that will stick for life. Here at the dojo, there is also a great sense of community, filled with wonderful people! The instructors here really do care the students. The time and dedication put into training material and all other aspects of the dojo, is absolutely inspiring. If it were any other way, I would not still be here. So, if you are thinking about trying out some awesome Japanese martial arts, do yourself a favor and give it a try. It will be a decision you will never regret!

I was looking for something for both my son and my daughter to stay active out of the sun this summer, but they're both so different. I found a trail offer and decided that I would sign them up to see if this would be something that they would equally enjoy. Got through the trial period. They wanted more. Everyone here is so welcoming, patient, and absolutely amazing with the kids. They motivate the kids like nothing I've seen! Very nice. Very clean. Needless to say, my kids are begging to go every day they are open and have decided that this will not be just a summer hobby!

From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcomed as a part of the dojo family! The staff are awesome and the instructors are second to none in my opinion! I would recommend this school to anyone interested in bettering themselves both physically and spiritually. I am on a better path in my life thanks in part to Kaiso D'Antonoli and the Bushin Ryu Aiki Bujutsu martial arts system. Can't say enough good about this school!

The Importance of Duty and Loyalty in Martial Arts

The Importance of Duty and Loyalty in Martial Arts

The code of Bushido is reminiscent of the United States Constitution in the sense that the virtues in the code are listed in order of importance. Just as the freedom of speech was viewed as the most important right a person could have, so is the ideal of Bushido which shows us that the idea of Loyalty and Duty is the first virtue a warrior should have. It is the cornerstone of the foundation of the Bujutsu-ka.

Be Mindful and Selective with Your Inner Circle

The sense of Duty the warrior possesses is steadfast and unwavering. He selects his clan, he selects his family, he selects those in his sphere of influence extremely carefully. This task by itself is a measure of a warrior, and further, because of this selection process, his loyalty can be described only as fierce and resolute.

This is a very important consideration in all stages of your life and is very useful for children as well. The curation of the people you let into your sphere of influence is an ongoing task.  Not one to be stressed over but one to put careful consideration into.

There’s a saying, “show me the 5 people closest to you and I’ll show you the person you are to become.” and when you find those positive influential people in your life it would treat you well to demonstrate duty and loyalty to them as those virtues are often reciprocated back.

Martial Arts Training Helps you Help Yourself

Duty and Loyalty also come in the form of cherishing oneself. Understanding that the warrior is solely responsible for cultivating the lifestyle of a warrior and holding themselves accountable to maintaining the prioritization of their training, education, and growth both in areas of comfort and more importantly areas of discomfort.

The idea of cherishing yourself and making yourself a priority is oftentimes overlooked as the first step to being of any guidance or help to anyone else. You will gain experiences in life through holding yourself accountable and taking care of yourself first that others will be able to learn from.

Don’t confuse this with selfishness. On the contrary, this is very much an act of selflessness if the intent is to be a better person for someone else or a group of people like your family or community. When you become a warrior you become a protector of others as well as yourself and thus… you’re training and betterment come first so that you can be there for others.

Feed the Mind and Body

The warrior is responsible for how they treat their bodies and their minds with respect controlling what they put into either. Keeping themselves in a dignified manner and holding others to the same.

This last talking point goes hand in hand with the previous point above.  The mindfulness and self-awareness needed to check your decisions on all things that you feed your mind and your body aren’t always easy to accomplish. Part of our adult curriculum is to have a full understanding of the warrior mindselt… our philosophy and see how it compliments the physical aspects of our martial art training.

You can’t really call yourself a martial arts school without learning and developing the proper mindset needed to keep your self accountable and to hold others to the same expectations.  The world is full of poison just waiting to take you over but the warrior can see this a mile away.

Some of our students come to us because of their inability to overcome the bad that has overtaken them.  With the right guidance, influence, and environment it’s possible to become the best version of YOU.  All you need are the right people in your circle who have your back.
