Welcome to Yosokan Dojo



Thank you for visiting the official website of Yosokan Dojo. As the owner and Chief Instructor of Yosokan Dojo I invite you to explore our world of martial arts experiences.  We are a teaching and training center that honors the history and traditions of Japanese jujutsu and sword—these ancient arts that continue to inspire me, my students and our international organizations. Thank you for taking the time to visit us and I hope you will find the information and galleries beneficial as well as inspiring.

Here at Yosokan Dojo we offer classes in traditional Japanese Jujutsu and Japanese Swordsmanship. The style of jujutsu being taught is KoKoDo Jujutsu founded by Irie Yasuhiro, Soke, of Saitama, Japan. The major style of Japanese sword being presented is Muso Shinden Fudo Ikken Ryu, Battojutsu founded by Machida Kenshinsai, Soke, of Nodashi, Japan. I have been a private student of these two world class teachers for many years as well as a private student of Ivo Belmans, Sensei, of Laakdai, Belgium (KoKoDo Kyushin Ryu Kai, World Organization). Through the inspiration and legacy of these three teachers, it is my wish that we can offer an exciting, powerful and fulfilling journey to all.
Please take a few minutes and look around. Please feel free to contact us with any suggestions on how we might be of better service.  Enjoy!!
