Yoseikan Budo

"Place where truth is taught"


The story of Yoseikan is rich in Japanese martial arts history.  It starts with a man named Minoru Mochizuki.  Mochizuki was a direct student of three masters of modern martial arts; Gichin Funakoshi (founder of Shotokan Karate), Jigoro Kano (founder of Judo), and Moreihei Ueshiba (founder of Aikido).

Yoseikan is an Aiki art characterized by taking one's attacking energy and using it against the attacker.  Yoseikan is strongly influenced by Aiki-jujistu techniques and Judo throws resembling a more ancient art of jujitsu than modern Aikido systems.

Yoseikan hallmarks are sutemi (sacrifice throws), ne waza (ground work), kensetsu waza (joint manipulation), and tai subaki (body movement and footwork).  Come learn martial arts through our Yoseikan program.
