Welcome To Our Dojo

First of all let me Welcome you to the Atlanta GiYu Dojo. At the GiYu Dojo we teach the classical Japanese Martial Art of Kobudo, the fighting style used by the Ninja and Samurai of Japan. Kobudo is a combat Martial Art.  Martial Arts such as Aikido, Jujitsu, Judo, Kendo, Iaido and Karate....etc, all have their roots in Kobudo. Kobudo is a methodology of self-defense and self-preservation that allows a smaller or weaker person to beat a bigger or stronger person, by employing his/her own natural body movements and body dynamics to defeat an attacker. The emphasis of Kobudo is placed on timing and distancing rather than speed or strength in order to overcome an aggressor. This is because timing and distancing will allow you to always win in any situation and environment, whereas speed and strength can be defended by others who are faster or stronger.  The art of Ninjutsu develops your physical, emotional, and spiritual being, which allows you to overcome obstacles in life.

At our dojo, we will teach you how to keep yourself and loved ones safe. You will learn to protect your body with hand to hand combat (striking, grappling, standing, and ground techniques), as well as traditional and modern weapons including swords, staffs, knifes and firearms training.
