    hello to all,

    new member here,
    I prob know this question been asked many a time but:
    I am looking for a dojos/ groups that teaches jujutsu , kenjutsu. or aikido ( more traditional styles prefered) they do not have to be at the same school.

    I live in Euless tx. for you who do not know it is in between dallas and ft worth by dfw airport. i have searhed the web some and found a few places but figured i would ask here also and get info from people who know more about than myself.

    the dojos i have found are:

    the dallas boudkai one if its splinter schools in irving tx for jujutsu
    the nikko dojo for kenjutsu and
    and for akido i looked at Aikido of Dallas or plano aikikai

    any help would greatly be appricieated

    thank you

    Hello Chris,

    First, E-Budo rules state that you must put your full name in every post. You can edit your signature to do this automatically.

    Second, for aikido, there is a Jiyushinkai dojo in the Dallas area. Details below. I've been there and they are a great group of people.

    From the Jiyushinkai website:
    http://www.jiyushinkai.org/

    Jita Kyoei Dojo

    c/o Chamberlain Studios of Self-Defense
    2739 Bachman Drive
    Dallas, TX 75220

    Open the User CP, on the left hand side, just below the blue Post Reply mark. After you open User CP, you will see Edit Signature on the top left. Open it and create your signature, at least with your full name. Then press Save Signature.

    We are very severe about this rule here at E-Budo.

    Oh and welcome to the forum.

    I seem to recall there being a Shinkage Ryu group somewhere in Texas. I can't remember the particulars, but a use of the forum search functions might turn up something for you.

    David,
    It's in the Austin area.


    There is THSYR in the Dallas area, but I'll hold for compliance.

    The Gendai Bushi Dojo meets on the SMU campus as far as I know. The group has several influences including Takamura ha Shindo Yoshin ryu. Probably the best idea is to e-mail first through their dojo page http://www.shinyokai.com/Dojos_GendaiBushi.htm

    If the Gendai Bushi dojo is a Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin Ryu and Yanagi Ryu derivative, it probably has kenjutsu in its curriculum.

    or to switch over to Iaido what was in my plans to happen later
    Are you saying that you were planning to study kenjutsu for a while and then eventually switch to iaido? That's an interesting choice... out of curiosity, why would you do that?

    Ah. That makes more sense, then. Though a number of kenjutsu styles have iai in their curriculum, meaning that adding a separate iaido might be a bit redundant.

    ok once again another question. while looking around got an email to check out this group found them online

    Tenshu Shindo Karato Ryu martialpaths.com/karato.php

    they say they are in dallas which would work for me. seems like from what i read that it should cover several aspects i am lookng for ( im still tring to get more info from them also)

    my question is : anybody heard of this group or know anything about them?

    thanks

    I don't like this statement on the website:

    "Please do not contact us to request other details of Karato Ryu’s history, lineage or curriculum because you will not receive a reply. This attitude does not stem from arrogance, but from the knowledge that though Koryu training certainly involves academic and intellectual study, its foundation must be rooted in physical training and no amount of pondering on comparisons and historical context by a non-exponent will either help to understand Karato Ryu or determine whether it is legitimate in any sense."
