The Hayashi Shugyo Dojo is a private dojo dedicated to the study and training of the classical Japanese martial arts and sciences (koryu budo taijutsu) in their formal and modern applications in a non-competitive environment.


Our training is based on several different classical Japanese warrior ryuha or lineages that are contained in the Bujinkan Dojo, all of which date back several centuries and were developed for the exclusive use of the aristocratic warrior class. These traditions are comprehensive systems of warfare that encompass a wide variety of weapons, strategy, tactical skills, and philosophical teachings that were forged and honed through several generations of intense conflict into the most sophisticated and efficient systems of combat known.
